“Each year, farmers in the town of Inakadate in Aomori prefecture
create works of crop art by growing a little purple and yellow-leafed
kodaimai rice along with their local green-leafed tsugaru-roman
variety. This year’s creation – a pair of grassy reproductions of
famous woodblock prints from Hokusai’s 36 Views of Mount Fuji – has
begun to appear (above). It will be visible until the rice is
harvested in September.”

“The residents of Inakadate have been drawing pictures with rice since 1993.”
