Rice Planting Workshop2015

April shower washes away blooming sakura, and then comes the best season to be in the field... 
We are happy to announce the hosting of Rice Planting Workshop 2015!
The event is open to all participants including elders and children. The fields are quite flat, muddy, and surprisingly very comfortable to go inside barefoot. 
Feel free to contact us for any questions. 
We'd love to share this special farming day with you out in the field.
