Where would you find this huge art work in a field?
As part of a revitalization effort in the early 90s, the village of Inakadate, Japan, decided on a novel way to boost tourism in their town: large-scale rice paddy art.
Now, using seven different kinds of rice as their colour palette, over a thousand local volunteers come together each year to help with the planting process. Over time, the designs have evolved in complexity and now draw in hundreds of thousands of tourists every year.
 The city even took the Guinness World Record back in 2015 for creating the world’s largest rice field artwork.
In honour of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, this year’s rice paddy artwork features a depiction of the famous Hokusai ukiyo-e woodblock print ‘The Great Wave off Kanagawa’ along with an image of a kabuki actor, similar to the one seen at the Olympic opening ceremony.
