JAPAN (NEWS10) – It’s that time of year again where you’ll start to notice scare crows popping up in your neighbor’s gardens.
They are mainly as a decoration for Halloween, but did you know scare crows are also used in japan? Farmers there have a rather unique take on them.
They use mannequin heads for their scarecrows and they’re meant to protect rice fields during the harvest in Japan. Some might say they’re even scarier than the U.S. version.
Scarecrows have a long history in Japanese farming and recently, it’s become a trend to use mannequin heads, often donated by hair dressers to protect the crops.
