Stunning Fields of Rice Art – CBC Video

Rice farming has sustained the people of northern Japan's Inakadate village for two thousand years. Today, the ancient rice fields are the source of food and art.I just watched this video the other day, local farmers in a small village in Japan plant intricate art in their rice paddies using different coloured rice plants!

It’s absolutely amazing and so beautiful!  They make it a family affair as they involve all the villagers to plant the rice shoots.  It’s sad that this only has a three month expectancy before they have to harvest.
