... tired so we took it on the easy side and took a leisurely walk through the landscape gardens near Okayama's castle. Here we were able to show C/J some of the farming we have been learning about and explained the rice growing/harvesting process as well as how tea trees grow and what they look like (it was a surprise to me the first time, considering I expected a tree rather than a shrub).
