Visiting oldest uncle

Obon is a season of family visiting - both the living and the dead. We went to visit Hiro's uncles who live in a neighbouring town.  Hiro's oldest uncle has several rice fields and a very productive vegetable patch.

The rice is flowering at the moment.
Eggplant & eggplant flowers
Mountain Lily
Cucumber  vine
Driving along - the rice here has been damaged by the heavy rain
The river near oldest uncle's place flooded out onto the flats
Water here is very unusually dirty - from the heavy rain the day before
Flood water remains
Most of the water came and went very quickly
