It’s September. In Japan that means rice is being harvested across the country. It also means straw art. After the grains are harvested, rice straw (“wara” in Japanese) is left behind. In Niigata Prefecture, however, locals have been turning that rice straw into art with a yearly Wara Art Festival.

Students of Musashino Art University along with interested citizens, recently came together to create incredible animals of immense stature out of rice straw, wood and rope for the Straw Art Festival, which took place in Niigata City, Japan during the last weekend of August. According to the organizers, the festival was a great success.
