JAPAN (AVN/NHK) – Who knew you could do all this with rice?

A village in northeastern Japan used rice plants to create an image commemorating Mount Fuji’s registration as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site last year.

This image shows a scene from a legend about Mount Fuji and a heavenly maiden.

Ten kinds of rice plants of various colors were used to depict the maiden wearing a feathery robe while floating over Mount Fuji and a pine forest.

Rice-field art is an annual tourist event in the village.

The rice field art is to remain on display through mid-August.
