If you have opportunity to visit the Aomori village of Inakadate, 600 miles north of Tokyo, you are surely surprised at the masterpieces, which are created across paddy fields. The pictures of Japanese heroes, animals and landscapes with different colors are cleverly planted in the paddy fields by farmers without ink or dye. This village has been best-known for its agricultural artistry since 1993 as a local revitalization project. Each year, hundreds of volunteers and villagers plant four different varieties of rice in late May across huge swathes. Another relatively famous rice paddy artwork is located in the town of Yonezawa, Yamagata Prefecture.
When the summer comes, rice paddy art starts to emerge in Japan and can be seen in farming communities across the country
The different varieties of rice plant are grown alongside each other to create the masterpieces. In the first nine years, the office workers and local farmers grew simple designs. However, their ideas have become more complicated and attracted more attention
The largest and finest work is grown in the Aomori village of Inakadate.
