Tanbo Rice Crop Art



Since the Yayoi period, Inakadate Village has been known for growing rice and has passed on the northern rice culture from generation to generation. Since 1993 Inakadate has been showing two fields of crop art to honor their history and tradition . The art is made by using different colored rice such as “ancient rice” and “Tsugaru Roman” rice.  Each year the designs are more and more elaborate.





     To view the crop art, you will be standing on a tower. It is quite an amazing site!


At ground level, this is what the field looks like. It is really cool to see the colors and textures of the different types of rice!

Period: June- September

(Peak Viewing : Mid July-Mid August)
