Rice Field Art in Japan

Inspired by crop circles (we assume), farmers of a village called Inakadate in Japan, started creating art (called Tanbo Art) in the surrounding rice fields. Every year, since 1993, Inakadate’s 8000 residents and farmers have worked together to create huge agricultural works of art in their rice paddy fields .  Using green, purple and yellow-leafed rice, the “agri-artists” design and plant their rice, precisely plotting out the colors which bring the images to life.  As the rice grows, the art becomes apparent from an elevated position, with the best viewing time in July.
