Hello, worldpackers around the world.
My name is Yoshinaga.
I have a small organic farm with my family. I love nature.

We live in harmony with nature and value technology. Of course, we need the economy. Sustainable modern Japanese lifestyle.
Think about the earth while farming.

I want to see you.
I am not good at English. But I will try.
