When I was driving back home from seeing carp streamers, cherry trees and daffodils in Sabae City, I spotted something yellow in the vast green fields that spread toward the mountains. It was cloudy and the fresh yellow color in a gray scenery looked very striking. Intrigued, I drove toward the yellow color. What I found were endless patches of field mustard flowers. I was all alone in the vast yellow fields and of course I imagined myself as Alice in Wonderland! I wanted to roll over and around in the yellow paradise like a child but the adult inside me quite mercilessly stopped me. Later I learned that these flowers would be used to fertilize the fields to grow rice. If you ask me, I'd prefer heavenly flowers to rice!
