In Niigata Prefecture, Japan, the “wara” or rice-straw festival is held every August 31st, where local artists build elaborate straw sculptures over wooden frames.

Amy Goda, an aspiring local artist, has gained fame for her spectacular rice-straw dinosaur sculptures, and her massive creatures have made the Wara Art Festival famous online. Visitors hoping to catch a glimpse of these unique sculptures can go to Uwasekigata Park in Niigata City’s Nishikan Ward, where they will remain until the beginning of November.
