JAPAN – A rice field in Japan is attracting tourists from around the world. This is not your ordinary rice field – it’s used to display massive works of art!

Villagers planted different kinds of rice plants in seven colors to grow the murals. One depicts a traditional Japanese Courtesan and the other one is Marilyn Monroe.

The village started making these murals 21 years ago to bring in tourists and revenue.
