I am doing a thesis for graduate school, and I need to know where most of the rice in Japan is grown.
What about doing a bit of your work yourself?
Just google Japan's rice-growing areas
Then you'll find lots of pictures and information about growing rice in Japan, like this one:
Niigata is renowned as one of Japan's best rice-growing area, ranking second amongst all the prefectures in terms of rice production. In the region rice is traditionally planted in May and then harvested in October. The rice terraces are used not only as for rice growing but also act as natural dams to store waters in mountains.
Bloody hell!! You're a writing a thesis
in graduate school and this is how you pulling your research?! You ever hear of a library?!
Try requesting the information and documentation from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan.
You just might be able to get a valid research worthy answer from an actual expert in the field.
