Just discovered these incredible rice field art or Tanbo Ato from Inakadate, Japan! Conceived in 1993 as a revitalization project and to pay homage to their ancient rice-growing tradition, villagers got creative and began using the 15,000 square meters rice field as their giant canvas. A theme is decided each April and four different types of colored rice varieties are planted with precision in May. By September the fields grow into its full artistic glory and draws massive crowds.

    These are so verdant! I love that the people who lived there work together to make this creative project come to life (literally!).
