The Japanese are good at pretty much  everything. You name it and they are probably better than you at it. Even if they didn’t create it and was someone else’s idea – they prolly made it better.

5 years ago a small village in Japan called Inakadate decided to show the western world up with its own crop circles. They also decided that instead of summoning aliens, they would create the circles themselves. Using a few different veriaties of rice grains, they set out with a lot of love and patience to create works of art that make crop circles seem like a lawnmower job.

I think I know why Japanese people live so long now. It takes time to create and grow these beautiful rice paddy sculptures.
