For at least 2,000 years, a unique way of life has flourished around the
shores of Japan's largest freshwater lake - Lake Biwa - fed by more than
500 rivers that descend from the rugged, forested interior of Honshu
Island. To exploit the abundant mountain water, generations of farmers have
transformed the foothills surrounding the lake into a maze of ingeniously
engineered terraced fields. The balance between humans and nature is
reflected in the Japanese name for the cultivated areas: satoyama.
