Cool right? According to a report by Mashable SEA, the artwork is created by sowing different types of rice which result in an array of colors.
Check out a few more creations by the Inakadate villagers.
Carefully curated pieces
So, how do they do it?
In a video interview with The Great Big Story, vice mayor Yokio Kasai said it all began with the villagers thinking of a way to attract tourists to the location.
"Rice paddy art drawings are made using seven kinds of different coloured rice plants," he said.
He added that usually there would be a meeting to discuss the design which would then be roughly put together on a computer.
"Art teachers then create more detailed conceptual drawings and finally officials go into the field and put markers down.
Eventually volunteers are called in to plant the paddy according to the markers laid out.
We can't get enough of this amazing type of art which only started in 1993. Here are a few more astounding creations by the people of Inakadate.
We still cannot believe the detail and work that goes into these mega-sized art pieces.
Now when are we going to see something like this in Malaysia?
