Iwaki in a paddy field. Thanks to the media attention and years of practice, the rice field art has become a big tourist destination in the region, as people learned how to use different types of heirloom and modern strains of rice to create more complex and stunning artworks on their fields. In April 2007, the rice of different colors was planted by over 700 people in order to create one of the largest pictures but hopefully, as the industry grows the new records are to be set.
