Japanese Agriculture That Blooms Into Gigantic Artworks; So More Colorful Than Crop Circles!

The following pictures showcase what is known as “Rice Paddy Art“. It’s the result of thousands of villagers working together every year. They plant millions of colored rice plants to come up with this interesting effect.

They started this tradition back in 1993, and during the first years the farmers focused on this traditional design:

They achieve this beautiful effect by meticulously planting rice plants of different colors. It’s a lot of work! Those paddies are almost 4 acres (15,000 square meters) in area!
