Naoko YAMAGUCHI

Hello, my name is Naoko Yamaguchi. I love music, children, and growing vegetables. I find that working in a farm, and growing vegetables helps me to cope with stress and stabilizes me emotionally and spiritually. I hope to share this with you. I would like to invite you to make rice cake and bake sweet potatoes together. If you want to experience a natural setting in a safe environment, if digging for sweet potatoes and baking them sounds enticing to you, if you are interested in agriculture and farming, or if you have children, then by all means please come and experience my activity and enjoy the winter flavors!

If you like nature, and if you would like to enjoy a taste of Japanese winter, then this activity is for you! At the Kira Kira Farm, learn how to make rice cake and bake sweet potatoes. Here, you will be able to experience making rice cake by pounding sticky rice in an activity called ‘mochi tsuki’ (pounding rice), get hands on and dig for sweet potatoes, and even bake them. No doubt, the experience, and the taste, will be unforgettable. Everyone, including children, are able to enjoy this event as the activity is held in a safe and natural environment.
