Fall is known to be the season of beautiful leaves as they transform into various colors. Unfortunately, fall is also the season that all those beautiful leaves fall off trees. Many people love seeing piles of colorful fallen leaves on the ground but others always end up sweeping the leaves away and ultimately throwing them into the trash. But not in Japan.
A new trend, “ochiba art” also known as “fallen leaf art” has arose in Japan. Instead of throwing the leaves away, people are using them as tools to create art! It’s a great way to bring life and art to plain sidewalks. Check out some of the contemporary leaf art pieces below.
