Empty bellies grumble. Hungry bellies work.

Zaibatsu fields provide a large farming income, and help industry grow by providing food for the factory workers. Large landowners are able to invest large amounts of money in improving their lands, and the transport links to towns and any newly industrialising cities. There is little point in growing more food if it then rots in warehouses far from where it is needed. Landowners can also spend money on mechanical aids for farmers; this frees people to seek work in new industries in towns. This is a bald, cold way of describing a process that can dislocate people's lives, throw them out of their homes, and make them work long hours in unpleasant conditions. Fortunately, Japanese farmers had centuries of experience of being extremely efficient, compared to many others across the world.
