You will be glad to know that there is a town in Japan where every year hundreds of farmers plant different varieties of rice that grows up into different colours. Moreover, they do this in pattern to create an amazing piece of art. Town of Inakdate has been creating some of the most spectacular rice field arts since 1993. I was literally amazed to see Marilyn Monroe's portrait in the middle of the rice field. The sad part about this art form is that it lasts only till it is time to harvest rice.
Paying homage to the superstar.
These art works attract a lot of tourists from all over the world.
Farmers from the town of Inakadate have done some impressive work here.
Four types of rice varieties are carefully selected and positioned to create art.
Masterpiece in making.
This art form is undoubtedly unique.
It usually takes around six weeks for a rice art like this to emerge.
Most of these images are from the months of June-July.
The art does not usually lasts long. Mostly after mid of August, rice is harvested.
