Straw Beasts of Japan are On the Way!

When there is rice harvest, there’s more straw. And rather than dumping them somewhere, where they’ll ultimately be rendered unusable,  Japan’s Nigata prefecture made them to some of the most beautiful beasts made from pure straw! (with wooden frames)

If you’re planning on a trip to the country between November and December, might as well drop Nigata some visit!
