[Rice field art]

Rice field art in which the picture appears as the rice plants grow

Many rice fields still remain in Anjo-shi, which are beautiful green in summer and changes color to gold in autumn. "Rice field art", using the rice fields as a canvas to plant rice plants of black, yellow and white and a picture emerging as they grow, is very popular. The illustrated art is different every year, and people look forward to seeing what comes next.
