What you'll do

• Immerse yourself in the rich countryside life of Japan for a day • Admire the pristine river and green towering mountains • Participate in a sustainable organic farm project Meeting near Nijo Station, or another convenient northern location. Relax on a scenic drive through the mountains to the north of Kyoto. Watch how the city peels away to reveal the true beauty of Japan. Along the way, learn about the history of the area and gain local insights about Kyoto. Upon arriving at the old farm house, you will be able to take some tea and breathe in the surroundings. Then have a tour of the farm. Hear about the Japanese and international plants growing, and the obstacles of the local environment. During harvesting times, learn how to choose produce on size, firmness and color. Once confident you will be invited to help pick some veggies for customers, or do a few farm chores. Next enjoy a lunch featuring seasonal produce. Choose a location to dine, either next to a mountain shrine, or on a scenic river bank. During the meal, plan your afternoon activities: river swimming; having a guided hike; visit a local farmers market in the mountains; a driven tour through village towns stopping at antique shops, local museums or to a mountain onsen (hot spring baths); or help the farm by participating in more farming activities. These afternoon trips offer something for all seasons.

Charles

When I started farming in a small mountain village 11 years ago by myself, most thought I was a bit crazy. Now so many people come up for the day and fall in love. It doesn't take much for folks to enjoy themselves in such a beautiful place and everyone smiles a little easier going home. I also give presentations on farming and do what I can in Kyoto to provide opportunities for everyone to learn more. Nature and farming and have become my passion, I am lucky to have this to share.

Recover your peaceful state of mind, next to the freshwater river that runs along the valley floor.
