Chiba prefecture will be the destination for the late Autumn edition of Papersky’s Tour de Nippon. On the first day, we will visit KURKKU FIELDS, a sustainable farm and park spread over a vast area. On the way, you will enjoy “omusubi” (rice balls) made from pesticide-free rice and meet the makers of the omusubi, and learn about the cycle of life through eating. On the second day, we will visit a local soccer club run by former Japanese national soccer player Robert Cullen, and experience making nori (seeweed) and hama-yaki BBQ at the seaside.
