The Aomori town of Inakadate has become famous for its Tanbo Art event held from early June until early October each year. ‘Tanbo’ is a rice field, the ingenious art is created by growing different crops to paint enormous living murals.

The murals can only be viewed from up high. One observation point is the Japanese castle themed village office, while the other is a more conventional observation tower.

The towers are open from 9am to 5pm from early June until July 13th, from 8:30am to 6pm from July 14th to August 31st, with the hours switching back again to 9-5 from September 1st until the 8th of October.

Both towers have separate admission prices from ¥200 and ¥500. A free 9-seater shuttle runs between the two venues.
