Japanese Town Transforms Boring Rice Field Into Magnificent Art Works

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.
