Rice Production with Ozuchi Village
Nimaida Noboru is the sole rice farmer and caretaker of an all-but-abandoned site in Ozuchi, Japan. He returned to the village where he was raised to tend to his family’s land. Throughout the year, Nimaida welcomes agriculture students, volunteers, and tour groups to learn about how he helps preserve the heritage of the land. In helping Nimaida develop this visitors program, the Slow Fund supports Ozuchi and educates visitors on traditional Japanese farming. The Slow Fund has donated $5,000 per annum to support Nimaida-San’s endeavours.
Nestled in the Noto mountains, the remote village of Ozuchi is true preservation of historic, rural Japan. The Slow Fund supports Nimaida’s efforts and rice production practices and has included a stop at Ozuchi on our Japan Walking trip.
