These Farmers In Japan Do Something Very Special With Rice to Adorn Villages

There is good talent in the world!


For 20 straight years elaborate and mysterious, multi-colored designs have been appearing in an Aomori rice field in northern Japan, becoming the focus of attention for the town of Inakadate.

These cleverly formed shapes are not the result of rampant pollution, but rather the work of local rice farmers and countless local volunteers.

The designs have been cleverly PLANTED! Farmers creating the huge displays use no ink or dye.Instead, different colour rice plants have been precisely and strategically arranged and grown in the paddy fields.

As summer progresses and the plants shoot up, the detailed artwork begins to emerge.

It is said that the best time for viewing the beautiful creations is August-September.

Over the past few years, others fields in rural Japan also followed the trend of this beautiful rice field art.Another famous rice paddy art venue is in the town of Yonezawa in the Yamagata prefecture.
