Rice Art

This is for all those who are tired of my non-stop rambling about films @ Cinefan Film Fest.

Rice farmers in Japan have a novel way to make things interesting. Each year the farmers in the town of Inakadate create works of crop art by growing a little purple and yellow-leafed rice along with the local green- leafed variety.

The farmers work around different themes and this year it was a reproduction of the famous woodblock
print of Katsushika Hokusai's 36 Views of Mt. Fuji.

Check out the previous themes at the official website of Inakadate village.

So what if it happens once a year...it's still something to look forward to!
