Amazing photos of Japanese rice art
Japanese rice art -- or as it's also known, Tanbo art -- is a process in which people use different kinds of rice to make a gigantic stunning picture landscape in rice fields, when viewed from afar.
Every April, villagers get together and decide what image they want to create using four kinds of rice in seven different colors with the paddies as the canvas.
When it's harvest time they also make farm art as well.
