The Kagamiishi Rice Field Art started in 2012. These beautiful works can be viewed from the observation room on the fourth floor of the Kagamiishi Town Library. Since it is viewed from the library, the concept of the field art is "a picture book viewed from the window - a new kind of library," and each year, the theme of the art is taken from nursery rhymes and fairy tales related to picture books.
Nine different types of rice plants in six different colors are grown to create the patterns. The best part is watching the seedlings grow to form these pieces of art, while the best time to view the art is from July to August.
Events scheduled for the art include the Rice-Planting Festival in late May, opening for public viewing in June, the Rice Harvesting Festival in mid-October, and viewing of the Kirakira Art starting in mid-November. These events mean that visitors can enjoy the Rice Field Art throughout the year.
