Inakadate is a small village in Japan renowned for its vast production of rice.
In a bid to increase tourism to the village, local officials began to create large scale images by planting different varieties of rice in the fields. After 25 years of this tradition, Inakadate has come to be known for its colorful rice illustrations. Each piece is created with the help of thousands of local volunteers and is worked on by local art teachers.
