Each year, folks in the town of Chikuzen, Japan create sculptures out of rice straw to mark the fall harvest. Previously, they made a Godzilla statue. This year, they’ve brought Space Battleship Yamato to life. 

According to Nico Nico, the rice straw version is over 54-feet long and at most 15-feet high. 

The rice straw recreation is outfitted with an LED light for nighttime illumination.

Like so.

The rice straw Space Battleship Yamato will be on display until next January.
