USJETAA and Kokoro Care Packages are pleased to announce this event that will give you a peek into the world of Japanese farming. One cannot think of the Japanese countryside without conjuring up images of terraced rice fields, lush and green or filled with water depending on the season. Yet most of us don’t know much about the concerns of small farmers, the impact of an aging population, or the economic and other challenges unique to Japanese agriculture.

Discussions will focus on how these issues impact organizations and members of the U.S.-Japan community.
