LOOK / Tanbo Art

Tanbo

In 1993, people from the village of Inakadate in Japan wanted to find a way of attracting travelers and tourists to their area.

One thing is for sure, they knew how to plant a legit rice paddy, and had been doing so for 2000 years.  The natural solution was to plant rice paddy artworks in fields up to 3 acres in size.

And so tanbo art was born – as they say, necessity is the mother of invention.
