Hello! I really enjoyed reading through some of the website today. I’ve spent the last four years traveling, too, and three years living in Japan. I did a stint as an aid worker in the tsunami zone after the earthquake, rebuilding communities.
I’ve been on the road for a while, but am headed back to Japan for a month soon. I saw your piece on Shinji Hashimoto and his farm near Kobe. I lived in Kobe for a while and had seen his produce sometimes but didnt know he took volunteers (as you mention in your article’s conclusion).
Just curious for when I’m back in Kobe soon: Could you let me know how you got into contact with him? I’d love to visit his farm and chat with him about various topics and questions I have. (I have an interest in sustainability too, and have the local connection of having lived nearby for so long).
