Yamazaki Suya celebrated her birthday recently at a rice paddy field that had been turned into a giant work of art in Shenyang, Liaoning province.

"The last time that I planted rice I was in sixth grade in primary school," said Yamazaki, who is now studying at Liaoning University. "It's like a dream, planting rice here."

The paddy field art, a form believed to have originated in Japan, is located in a themed park in the city's Shenbei New District. After opening to the public in 2014, the park has become a popular tourist destination, with a rice harvest every year.

Zhang Aizhong, the park's founder, said that rice is not the only product. It's also about culture, art and helping farmers make more money, Zhang said.
