    From ground level, the designs are invisible, and viewers have to climb the mock castle tower of the village office to get a glimpse of the work.
    In the first nine years, the village office workers and local farmers grew a simple design of Mount Iwaki every year. But their ideas grew more complicated and attracted more attention.



    In 2005, agreements between landowners allowed the creation of enormous rice paddy art.


    A year later,organizers used computers to precisely plot the planting of four differently coloured rice varieties that bring the images to life!

    Closer to the image, the careful placement of the thousands of rice plants in the paddy fields can be seen.

    Rice-paddy art was started there in 1993 as a local revitalization project, an idea that grew from meetings of the village committees. The different varieties of rice plants grow alongside each other to create the masterpieces.

    Napoleon on horseback can be seen from the skies. This was created by precision planting and months of planning by villagers and farmers located in Inkadate , Japan .
