How Cool Is That? Giant Straw Dinosaurs In Field In Japan


Japan is amazing. When Japanese farmers harvest their rice they do some very impressive things with the straw that is left over from harvest. Rather than burn the straw, or dump it they create massive dinosaur sculptures with it. How cool is that? Wait though…it gets better! 8 years ago a festival started to honor the farmers, celebrate the rice harvest,and to display the dinosaurs. The festival is called the Wara Art Festival and is held in Niigata, Japan. Some of the straw dinosaurs are 16 feet tall! Very cool indeed.
