Itakura-machi

Itakura-machi

Itakura-machi is situated at the southeastern tip of Gunma. It is known for its hayaba-mai rice (early-harvested rice). In Itakura, rice planted in April is harvested as early as July or August. In August of 2011, the town's river basin, where the Watarase River joins the Tone River, was designated as one of Japan's Important Cultural Landscapes.
