2:00 PM Film: Satoyama Japan is a country of steep mountains surrounding wide, flat plains where people have lived for thousands of years. On the largest plain lies the country's largest freshwater lake, Lake Biwa, which is not far from Japan's ancient capital city of Kyoto. The slopes that stretch down toward the lake have been terraced with meticulously constructed paddy fields, some of which have been cultivated continuously for thousands of years.

This is a land that has been ruled for centuries based upon the demand for the rice, yet it's still dominated by the rhythmic cycle of the seasons. Here is a landscape that the Japanese people hold so close to their hearts that they have a special word for it: satoyama.
