Rice Paddy Art(Tanbo Art)

You might think of the Crop Circle or the Nazca Lines when you are looking down on the rice paddies from the top of Inakadate Village office building. What you see instead is The Mona Lisa or Japanese Ukiyo-e block art on the greenery of the rice paddies. Located in Aomori prefecture in the northern part of Japan, the village “displays” this one of a kind artwork on a huge rice paddy used as a canvas, with green, yellow, purple and red grasses. People from all over the country come to help with the planting in spring and come back for the harvesting in fall. Summer is the best season to visit and see. Let’s check out the artwork and join them this year! Rice to meet you!
