Image of Raijin spotted in Japanese rice field.

|

A giant image of Raijin, the God of Thunder, has appeared in a rice field in the village of Inakadate in Aomori prefecture. The different colors consist of different varieties of rice — the green areas are tsugaru-roman (the local variety), while the purple, yellow and red areas consist of so-called kodaimai, or ancient strains of rice. Mid-August is reportedly the best time to view the rice field.

Update:
Incognita nome the Plume, the director and curator of the remarkable Museum of Dust, has found this picture of what I can only assume is the missing portrait mentioned in the article of Fujin, the God of Wind.
