This area has been used as a manor since the end of the Heian period (794-1192), and rice and livestock farming have flourished here. In the Uzudo district, where you will be staying, a “rain-making ceremony” has been kept since the Edo period (1603-1868), which is very rare in Japan. Why don’t you join us and think about what we can do to preserve the culture for the next generation?

I have the assignment conscious about the opportunity differences between the city and rural areas. With so many people being born or moving to rural areas due to their parents’ occupations, caring for family members, or relocations, what can they do to achieve the lifestyle they truly and sincerely desire? I discussed this topic with various people. I’m preparing to make a community where can interact with the world equally.
