Agricultural Experiance in Asuka

Agricultural Experience in Asuka (With Lunch). OK in Any Weather!

A farm nestled within the beautiful satoyama scenery of Asuka.

In this tranquil setting, you can experience a new method of recycling-style farming.

In just a few hours, you can try your hand at a whole series of tasks—sowing seeds, planting seedlings, and harvesting produce. Finally, you can even pack the vegetables you pick to take home as a souvenir.

After your farming experience, you’ll enjoy a well-deserved lunch with local farmers.

Lunch is a bento lunchbox featuring seasonal vegetables, prepared by “PocaFrere,” a restaurant that uses remarkably delicious vegetables.
