Since 2008, students from the Musashino Art University in Tokyo have traveled to Niigata City, Japan to create huge sculptures made from straw for the Wara Art Festival.

The giant straw sculptures are built atop large wooden frames which serve as the base for the woven straw artworks. The festival also features kite flying, a miniature market, and other events. It’s a huge hit with kids and parents as people get to interact with the sculptures, taking photos and playing in the open fields.

You can learn more about the festival at the official site as well as their Facebook page.
