Rice Paddy Art Revival – Giant Godzilla grown by Japanese Village

Share this article :

Impressive field art has been created for the upcoming film Godzilla: Revival in the village of Inakadate, Japan, far up north in the Aomori Prefecture. Approximately 10,000 square meters (2.47 acres or 32,808 square feet) to span the field, it is the average size of a Major League Baseball ballpark. There are nine different species of multicolored rice plants used to create a seven-color image of Godzilla roaring menacingly. In fact, there are about 260 people including local famers and high school students help to plant and tend the rice. The image will remain until the rice is harvested in October.

The field art project in Inakadate plays an important role in revitalizing the village begun in 1993. It widely knows that previous field art has included the Mona Lisa, the iconic tokusatsu superhero Ultraman, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Godzilla: Resurgence is known in Japan as Shin Godzilla and co-directed by Hideaki Anno, who is the creator of Neon Genesis Evangelion and Shinji Higuchi, who directed the Attack on Titan live-action films. It will be shown up in Japan on July 29.
