Tanbo art (田んぼアート) or “rice paddy art” is the work of Japanese farmers who plant different strains of rice in order to transform their rice paddies into enormous living canvases. No dyes or other artificial colouring methods are used in this process. Each colour is simply a different type of rice.
"Often, hundreds of villagers work together to plant the rice by hand and create these massive works of art. While planting, different areas of the rice paddy are roped off, so people know which type of rice to put where—kind of like painting by numbers.
Rice is planted in the spring, and then harvested in the fall. When it gets close to harvest, the color changes to a beautiful hue called “koganeiro” (黄金色), which is often translated as “golden” or “honey-colored”. This means the art changes as the seasons change.”

Traditionally, the high school yearbook photo is one of embarrassment and self-loathing, at least in America. At Jeonju Haesung High School in South Korea, the students have avoided the awkwardness altogether by purposely dressing like total nimrods for their yearbook photo.
The whole thing makes me jealous that these kids have found a loophole in the system and sidestepped the “terrible yearbook photo” by dressing like Iron Man.
SEKAI NO OWARI was spotted at ONE OK ROCK’s New York concert a few hours ago.
Since Tama became the stationmaster, the Kishigawa line has become a big tourist destination. One of the trains has been decked out with calico decor. There are cat shaped lights, Tama patterned curtains, and, just in case you get bored in the 20 minutes it takes to get from one end of the line to the other, book cases filled with cat themed books and manga. While I only got the chance to ride the more popular Tama train, there are also two other “strawberry” and “toy” themed trains. But I mean… they’re not cat-shaped, so how do you compete with that?
