10. Daikoku

The finest paddy art comes from the village of Inakadate, 600 miles north of Tokyo, where the tradition began (on a much smaller scale) in 1993 in an effort to draw tourists and revitalize the economy. Over 150,000 people now visit the small village of just 8,700 residents each summer to explore the agricultural artistry. This mural of Daikoku, the god of wealth in Japanese mythology, graced the fields of Inakadate in 2008. (Photo: dailyartfixx)
