Beats me on that. All I know about their farming is what I learned living in a small town their for 4 years. Everything was penned up in small areas. They used a lot, a lot of plastic to cover crops. Rice, obviously. Not much wild life at all. I bet their are books. I also bet a lot of those rice patties I saw had been there for centuries. They didn't seem big on change there. Lots of people with bowed backs.

Look for this book:

http://books.google.com/books/about/Just_Enough.html?id=XRTQAgAAQBAJ

Of course the plant list would be extensive. Contemplate the seed offerings here for a start: http://www.kitazawaseed.com/

Fruits: http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2347.html

Wild plants would need a separate reference. Mushrooms too. And wildcrafted and cultivated sea vegetables.

Have you read "Farmers of Forty Centuries"? That would be another key reference.
