Rice Art of Japan

   Crop art has sprung up across rice fields in Japan farmers creating the huge displays use different color rice plants that have been precisely arranged and grown in the  paddy fields.
From ground level, the designs are invisible, and viewers have to climb the tower of the village, to enjoy the work.
   Rice-paddy art was started there in 1993 as a local revitalization project, In the first nine years, the local farmers grew a simple design of Mount Iwaki every year. But their ideas grew more complicated and attracted more attention. In 2005, the farmers starts to create large scale of enormous rice paddy art. At 2006, the artists start useing computers to precisely plot the planting of four differently colored rice varieties.
