Kuma's Organic Rice field

Sep 27, 2009

Toke-town, Chiba-city, Chiba-pref, JAPAN


The organic farmer, Kuma, met a Yoga teacher, Yumiko, in the basketball tourney held in Aug 29th.

22 teams came to the tourney.

Yumiko told Kuma that harvesting rice can be a great experience for people who had never experienced it before.

This is how this harvesting rice event came about.


We started harvesting rice from 10am.

getting on the truck to go to the field. It reminded me of Timor-Leste
Showing how to cut and tie up the harvested rice.
moving really fast!
First experience
the kids helping cook the rice
good work kids!
The rice went perfect!
Lunch time! We had friends from Vietnam, the US and Peru.
Goats having lunch time as well
This is a beatiful rice field!
We hung them on the bars to dry them up.





We are really looking forward to eating the rice!!!
