This time, a young woman from Asia experiences agricultural work in a destination popular with tourists visiting Japan from abroad, Kyoto. 

With sites like Kinkaku-ji and Kiyomizu-dera Temple, it’s a city full of Japanese history and living tradition.

The surprising truth is . . . Kyoto has a flourishing agricultural industry!

Kyoto has a long tradition of growing the heirloom vegetables “Kyōyasai,” which had their origin there.

Moreover, it’s also famous for production of Japanese green tea, which is enjoying a boom of popularity throughout Asia.

A young woman from Indonesia travels to Kyoto to experience agricultural industry to sweat together and share in the joy of the harvest together with Japan’s farmers!
