From June 3 - 10, 2012, USDA/FAS personnel and staff from the US Embassy in Tokyo visited two major agricultural areas of Japan - Niigata prefecture and city in the western part of the country, and Miyagi prefecture and the city of Sendai on the east coast. The purpose of the trip was to get an overall understanding of Japan’s agricultural sector, with an emphasis on rice production practices, consumption issues, and the recovery efforts following the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
