Niseko Green Farm
Hokkaido

Niseko Green Farm is a new farm set at the base of Mt. Yotei. They are setting up a system to produce food year round, continuing to grow indoors during winter with organic hydroponics, as well as making oils and dried food.

Niseko Green Farm believes in the importance of bio-diversity, and use open-pollinated varieties where possible. Niseko Green Farm is hoping to introduce people to the wide range of vegetable varieties available, and the ability to save and grow your own seeds.

Niseko Green Farm is working towards being 100% organic within 3 years, and are combining the use of natural energy with crystal clear spring water to create great tasting and healthy produce.

More About Japan

The eight islands of Japan sprang into existence through Divine Intervention.The first two gods who came into existence were Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto, the Exalted Male and Exalted Female. It was their job to make the land for people to live on.They went to the bridge between heaven and earth and, using a jewel-encrusted halberd, Izanagi and Izanami churned up the sea into a frothy foam. As salty drips of water fell from the tip of the halberd the first island was formed. Its name was Onogoro.So far, so good. But when Izanagi and Izanami first met on their island, Izanami spoke to Isanagi without being spoken to first. Since she was the female, and this was improper, their first union created badly-formed offspring who were sent off into the sea in boats.The next time they met, Izanagi was sure to speak first, ensuring the proper rules were followed, and this time they produced eight children, which became the islands of Japan.I'm sure you did not fail to miss the significance of this myth for the establishment of Japanese formal society.At present, Japan is the financial capital of Asia. It has the second largest economy in the world and the largest metropolitan area (Tokyo.)Technically there are three thousand islands making up the Japanese archipelago. Izanagi and Izanami must have been busy little devils with their jewelled halberd...Japan's culture is highly technical and organized. Everything sparkles and swooshes on silent, miniaturized mechanisms.They're a world leader in robotics, and the Japanese have the longest life-expectancy on earth.Text by Steve Smith.
