Nature school “School in Paddies”

Learn and work with joy.

This year will be the 13th “School in Paddies”. To preserve traditional Japanese paddies and to achieve our dreams, we ask you to help to maintain our paddies.

  • Rice planting in late May, weeding in mid-June and harvesting in October.
    Both children and adults work together from early mornings, have lunch and participate in the workshops.

  • Many of the participants are now seasoned veterans! All the natural rice harvested will be brewed and bottled under our strict supervision.
  • The graduation ceremony of this “School in Paddies” takes place every March. All the participants will label their bottles, complete the task and graduate.
