Every year when I remember that Inakadate in Aomori prefecture has new rice paddy art for us to enjoy, I get excited all over again! Each summer they pick new themes and create dramatic, beautiful images from variations of white, purple, and brown rice. This year they did a famous scene from the American film Roman Holiday as well as an homage the world-renowned Japanese artist Tezuka Osamu.
Check out more pictures of the rice paddies, including daily photographs of the rice growing in and a live feed from Inakadate’s official website!
