2024 Japan Trip, Day 12 – From a Crowded Resort Hotel to an Indigo Workshop in the Mountains

This was the crowd in the huge dining room in an enormous resort hotel on the Japan Sea. Last night I thought we were having a private room and this crowd was a shock. A buffet with lots of good things. This is actually the breakfast crowd.


Not a good photo but I wanted to catch a view of the Japan Sea where the resort hotel was as we drove away.


We drove 31/2 hours today passing many villages large and small nestled in valleys between the mountains. All had rice paddies.


Newly planted rice field. Another village.


More from our bus. A village and rice fields.


I couldn’t get enough of the villages and the progress of the rice growing.


Rice seedlings are planted with a tractor. I remember seeing people stooped over planting by hand on my first trips.


There were some fields of wheat in amongst the rice fields.


A scene in the country.


We had an indigo workshop in an old school building at the end of that lovely ride on the bus.


Of course the cloth comes out green right after it comes out of the indigo vat as usual. Then it turns blue as the oxygen gets to it.

  1. More lovely pictures Peggy. Thank you. The green rice fields are mesmerizing, as is the green dye which then turns to blue. You are having a fascinating adventure. Appreciate you sharing with us at home.
