Hoshitoge is considered one of Japan's 100 Most Beautiful Villages because of the beautiful rice terraces. The impressive rice fields are evocative of ancient Japan. And if you are lucky, you can see the Unkai (Sea of Clouds) early in the morning when the golden sunrise is reflected on the peaceful, fog-shrouded rice terraces. The beautiful sight attracts many photographers and creators.
