Dozens of Rice Varieties Form Colorful Drawings in the Rice Fields of Inakadate Japan



The village of Inakadate is an area of Japan most known for its production of rice, an agricultural product that has grown in the surrounding fields for over 2,000 years. In order to increase tourism to the small village, officials began a tradition plantings different varieties of rice. Nearly 25 years later, the town is known throughout the country for its colorful rice fields drawings. This occurs each year with the help of local volunteers.

To begin the process for upcoming designs, there is first a conference to discuss possible ideas. Next government officials make simple computer mockups of the winning designs.

Finally, markers are placed into the fields to create what is essentially a large-scale paint-by-number.

The entire process takes up to three months.
