In this article we’ll take a look at amazing and unusual art you have ever seen. An art form originating in Japan where people plant rice of various types and colors to create a giant pictures in a paddy field.
Every April, the villagers meet and decide what to plant for the year. Prior to planting, farmers sketch out the designs on computers to figure out where and how to plant the rice. In 2007, 700 people helped plant rice. In Inakadate, the fields used are approximately 15,000 square meters.
Just have a look here. You would be amazed to see what I am talking about.
Hundreds of volunteers rope off patches of paddies, and plant different-colored rice strains.
With the paddy as a canvas, the villagers cultivated and used four different types of heirloom and modern strains of rice to create a giant picture in the field. To allow viewing of the whole picture, a mock castle tower 22 meters high was erected at the village office. In 2006, more than 200,000 people visited the village to see the art.
