Traditional rice planting and, perhaps, the root of Japan's GREAT fondness for back massage machines. There is a scene at the end of 'Shichinin no Samurai' of the entire village out in the tambo all bent and working in unison and singing the kome planting song... Oh what a blessing the rice planting machines must be...

WB pre industrial and post transition from hunter gathering all farming has been back breaking in one form or another. I have never understood from the perspective of the people of the time why they would want to give up a successful and comparatively easy way of life in favour of a fixed, regulated and physically labour intensive life style?
