Fun Link Friday: 2019 Rice Field art at Inakadate

As long-time readers know, each year we showcase the rice paddy art of Inakadate, Aomori Prefecture, which has a long standing tradition of growing multicolored rice to great gigantic rice paddy art!

This year the theme is  Oshin「おしん」, a television drama (image below), and Okaasan to Issho, 「おかあさんといっしょ」a morning children’s show from NHK.

Here’s a couple links to some wide photos of the two fields, and below is a video showing the rice from overhead:

You can also check out the live feed at Inakadate’s official website! Just remember the time difference so you’re not checking at night! 🙂

For last year’s art, see this page.
