稻田画艺术,起源于1993年的日本,农民利用智慧将稻田分布种植不同颜色的水稻,待到水稻成熟时,一个个稻田里便呈现出各种各样的图案。每幅稻田画或讲述一个故事,或寄托人们的美好期望。这种将艺术与农业完美结合的稻田艺术充分展现出了农民的智慧。

This rice paddy art began in 1993 and each year these farmers plant rice plants of different colors to create new artworks which last all through the growing season until the time of harvest. The  rice paddy tells different stories and emotions. We were lucky to see two different rice paddy art sites. One told the love story of 'Suikatarou' and 'tuyahime'; and the other showed support to Kumamoto prefecture. Rice paddy art combines art with agriculture. It demonstrates the wisdom of the farmers.
