YOUR HOST

Masao SHINGYOJI

My name is Masao Shingyoji. I was raised in a farming family, and when I retired from working life, I decided to return to agriculture. I chose to grow blueberries because they’re excellent for health (both mine and everybody’s). I like feeling connected to the land and harnessing my 40+ years of agricultural heritage, and I take the stewardship of the land very seriously. Using organic composting methods and local waste products (peanut husks), I cultivate my blueberries without chemical fertilisers, herbicides, fungicides or insecticide sprays. This ensures true health for the land and the blueberries themselves, not to mention the people who eat them. I manage all the fields myself — the largest plantation has 30 varieties, and about 1,500 plants. I’ve opened my blueberry experience up from June to August, during the harvesting season, because it’s a lot for one person to do, and I like to help interested, enthusiastic people gather insights into the life of farmers as well as the benefits of blueberries.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Learn about organic agriculture, and fill your belly with delicious blueberries, amidst beautiful natural surroundings bordered by mountains in Higashi, Chiba Prefecture. Eat all you can, and sample 10 different varieties of “Rabbiteye" blueberries (did you know there were so many different kinds?). Learn about how they grow, what soil conditions they prefer, as well as the natural land management system that helps them, and the surrounding environment, to thrive. Take home a jar of delicious blueberry jam, and some fresh blueberries, too. It’s fun for the whole family, and since there are no chemicals used, it’s safe! The experience will be held, (light) rain or shine. Stuff yourself with delicious berries right off the plants, and take some home to savour — you can actually taste the sunshine. Delicious!
