What are the Field and Rice Field Clubs?

We want to regain a sense of how the food we eat comes to being, and how each piece of food is made. We want to know and remember the warmth of the soil and the sensation of growing vegetables, not with our brains, but with our hands. With this in mind, the Field Club and the Rice Paddy Club have been established to grow vegetables and rice through natural farming, learning from Mr. Yuzuru Akiyama, a natural farmer. In 2023, we also started beekeeping Japanese honeybees under the guidance of Mr. Takehide Shirogane, a honeybee teacher.
