Immerse Yourself in Art and History: Unveiling Tokyo's Museum at the Imperial Palace - Treasures of the Imperial Family at Sannomaru Shozokan

The world's largest rice field art

Japan, 2375-1 Kobari, Gyoda City, Saitama Prefecture 3610024

Rice field art has become a fixture of the rice fields of Gyoda City, a rice-producing region, from early summer to autumn. This initiative, which uses rice paddies as a canvas and uses multiple rice plants of different colors to express pictures and letters, is attracting attention as a tourist spot in Gyoda. Boasting a size of approximately 2.8 hectares, it was recognized in the Guinness Book of World Records as the ``World's Largest Rice Paddy Art'' in 2015. For this rice field art, rice is planted in mid-June and harvested in mid-October. The best time to see them is from mid-July to mid-October, and you can view them from the adjacent Ancient Lotus Hall Observation Room. When you visit Gyoda, please stop by and enjoy the magnificent scale of the art. *Design changes every year.
