Japanese Rice Paddy Art

The village of Inakadate in Japan boasts an unusual art called rice paddy art or tambo āto in Japanese. Villagers use various types of rice as their color palletes to produce colorful images in their rice fields. The images are inspired by Japanese culture and folklore.

It takes three months to finish every single image so it’s not an easy affair. Nonetheless, the result of the hard work is an awe-inspiring work of art.
