For more than two decades, the residents of Inakadate Village in Japan’s Aomori Prefecture have transformed their centuries-old rice paddies into large-scale works of art. Using four varieties of the grain, with their different-colored leaves, they typically recreate classic Japanese paintings. This year, however, they drew from a galaxy far, far away.
The villagers pay tribute to Star Wars with a design that includes fan-favorite droids C-3PO and R2-D2, as well as franchise newcomer BB-8. While the rice-paddy art certainly looks like a giant ad for The Force Awakens, it won’t stick around for the film’s premiere; it’ll likely be harvested in September.
