I have been on a Sushi kick lately and can't seem to get enough of it! That being said, I ran across an article a few days ago about a little farm village in Northern Japan, 600 miles North of Tokyo, that has pioneered the art of making rice paddies into a tourist destination. Leave it to the Japanese to take something most people don't even think about and turn it into art.
To read more about how this came about, as its been going on since 1993, read the New York Times article here.
If not, just scroll down and enjoy the photos!
Note: Some of these photos may not be located in the town of Inakadate but all are labeled as “Paddy Art.”
