Japan: Volunteering in Nirasaki at Koma Farm

1 Comment

Since my last post, we’ve been travelling Japan, and it has been amazing! It’s rainy season here so there has been some cloudy days. We spent a week near Nirasaki at a beautiful vegetable farm in the mountains volunteering in exchange for a place to stay and food to eat. Our hosts Ryo and Chiharu from Koma Farm were amazing! We felt like family! We still dream about the amazing vegetables we were able to eat, and the fun times we had working together. Here are a few shots that I took while we were at the farm. Hope you enjoy!

We got to experience so many new flavours, I am totally inspired to make some recipes either while travelling or once I return home! One very interesting thing was naturally occurring sparking water near where the farm was. It was the most interesting taste, a little fizzy, and a little salty. If you are ever in the area it may be hard to find but it is a pretty unique experience.

Thanks to all who are following my travels! I will try to keep the updates coming, but it’s sometimes tough with no internet! Much love,

  1. Hi Anna. We were so happy to read your post :) I love the sparkling water; that must have been neat to taste. Wayne loves the photos and we are both looking forward to a sampling party when you return-lol! Hugs, Sarah and Wayne
