Nurture the ability to live with rice field art! Tsukuba Mirai City, a city where urban and rural areas merge

  • Sights

This year the theme is “nurturing the ability to live”. The importance of the Japanese language is included in the theme. I think that you will be able to enjoy the characters “nurture the ability to live” that seem to float in a checkered pattern and the mascot character “Tanbou”. The seedling, making, drawing a plan, surveying, growth management, and harvesting were handled all within our association. We could not have done it without human cooperation. Rice field art is created being conscious of how it will appear when viewed on a flat surface. Also, you are able to see the rice field art when coming from Tokyo by Tsukuba Express.

You are able to access from central Tokyo via the Tsukuba Express line via Akihabara station in around 40 minutes. The rich countryside spreads out around you very quickly, so please come to Tsukuba Mirai City in Ibaraki Prefecture where city and country blend.

※The rice field art harvest festival is scheduled for October 7, Sun.
