 From old days, agriculture is popular in this area. The style of this area’s agriculture is a year round cultivation of mikan. Also Kamiakizu is a Kisyu nanko ume producing area, so famers cultivate ume in the early morning in Jane. By making use of this area’s agricultural style, we are planning to accept firming experiential learning.
