Fun Link Friday: Rice Paddy Art of 2017

The fall is upon us! And it seems we missed the peak period of rice paddy art for this year in Inakadate. 😦 But never fear! There are still photos on the internet of the fabulous pieces of art rice farmers produced in their fields, including these from This is Colossal:

But did you also know that Inakadate maintains a LIVE FEED now of their fields? I wish I had known this years ago. They haven’t fully taken everything down, so you can check out the live video here of what the fields look like as it all goes brown, which is still pretty amazing!

And if all that isn’t enough for you, you can see the fields in their glory in this Great Big Story report on the final result and process.


Happy weekend!
