Seki: A Village of Scarecrows in Japan

September 23, 2014 | in Travel

On the outskirts of the Japanese town of Himeji is located a unique place, an entire village inhabited by scarecrows called Seki. Or rather, that was the name of the village that eventually merged with the city.

Masato Okaue is now 61 years old. He was born and raised in Seki. He created his first scarecrow in 2010. Then he got helped by other villagers. So, pretty soon the streets of the village were filled with lots of scarecrows dressed like ordinary villagers. Now, the village is inhabited by over a hundred scarecrows. This way Masato Okaue wanted to attract visitors to this deserted area.
