Japan’s Tanbo Art More Amazing Than Ever

tanbo-art-001

Japanese have been marvelling at the quality of the latest tanbo (rice field) art, with designs more intricate and complex than ever.

Tanbo art boasts an ancient history dating all the way back to 1993, when Touhoku farmers discovered the secret of planting different strains of rice so as to use their fields as gigantic canvases.

Typical themes for tanbo art are scenes from traditional Japanese art, but everything from advertising to cartoon characters also feature, and recent fields have seen a surge in “ganbarou” messages of post-quake encouragement.
