In Tanabe City, Wakayama Prefecture, "rice field art" is in full bloom, which uses the different colors of rice ears to draw pictures on fallow fields.

At Ryujin Village in Tanabe City, Wakayama Prefecture, local people work on "rice field art," in which they draw pictures on fallow fields using the different colors of ears of rice every year, and this year marks its 10th year.

There are three types of rice ears colored red, yellow, and green in a rice field about 20 meters long and wide, and the "hot spring mark" named after Ryujin Onsen,

"Eto rabbit" and the words "10th anniversary" were drawn.

This year we were blessed with good weather and the rice ears were good, so the ears of rice, which began to change color from the end of last month, are now in full bloom.

A man in his 70s who came to see it said, "It was beautifully made and I was able to take wonderful pictures."

Susumu Tomita, chairman of the Rice Paddy Art Executive Committee, said, "I think this year was the best finish ever, and I hope that you will visit the village once and enjoy the art."

This "rice field art" can be enjoyed until the 1rd of next month, when it is harvested.
