    This year,various artwork has popped up in other rice-farming areas of Japan , including designs of deer dancers.Smaller works of 'crop-art' can be seen in other rice-farming areas of Japan such as this image of Doraemon and deer dancers

    The farmers create the murals by planting little purple and yellow-leafed Kodaimai rice along with their local green-leafed Tsugaru, a Roman variety, to create the coloured patterns in the time between planting and harvesting in September.


    The murals in Inakadate cover 15,000 square meters of paddy fields.

    Stunning crop art has sprung up across rice fields in Japan ,but this is no alien creation.The designs have been cleverly PLANTED! Farmers creating the huge displays use no ink or dye. Instead, different colour rice plants have been precisely and strategically arranged and grown in the paddy fields. As summer progresses and the plants shoot up, the detailed artwork begins to emerge.

    A Sengoku warrior on horseback has been created from hundreds of thousands of rice plants. The colours are created by using different varieties of rice plants, whose leaves grow in certain colours. This photo was taken in Inakadate , Japan .
