The Amazing Rice Paddy Art of Japan

Since 1993, the farmers of the Japanese village of Inakadate has been creating art on rice paddy fields. By intermixing purple and yellow-leafed rice with local green-leafed variety, imaginative farmers in rural Japan create large scale rice paddy artworks in their fields. Each year these farmers plant rice of different variety to create new artworks and they last all through the growing season until the time of harvest.

Watch how this paddy field slowly evolves into a fantastic artwork.

            Ripe and ready to harvest!

  According to Pink Tentacle, “In recent years, a growing number of local governments around Japan have started organizing rice paddy art projects as a way to attract tourists and educate people about rice farming.”
