Crop circles are interesting, but pimped crop fields are even better. Every year, farmers in Inakadate, Japan pimp their crop fields with a style that resembles video game animation. Pink Tentacle describes that the farmers, "create works of crop art by growing a little purple and yellow-leafed kodaimai rice along with their local green-leafed tsugaru-roman variety. This year's creation â€" a pair of grassy reproductions of famous woodblock prints from Hokusai's 36 Views of Mount Fuji."
