Inakadate Rice Field Art 2009

Today I managed to go to Inakadate village and see the rice field art.The drawings on the rice field are created by planting various types of rice. Planting the rice field starts in late April and the drawings become more visible every month. The peak is in September.

Volunteers are helping at planting the rise and on the 4th of October they help at the crop.
Visitors take an elevator situated in a nearby building that looks like an old castle, to the 5th floor, then walk the stairs up to the 7th floor. From there visitors are able to see the drawings.

Sengoku Warrior Rice field

This year a Sengoku warrior and Napoleon were the two main characters.
