Art Grows in Japan's Rice Fields

Stunningly beautiful crop art has sprung up across rice fields in Japan. The designs use different varieties of rice plants

This mural in Inakadate, Japan, covers 15,000 square meters. One must climb a nearby tower to view the artwork. 

Rice-paddy art began in Inakadate in 1993 as a local area revitalization project.
