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!
