Living A Rural Life Style in Aya, Miyazaki Prefecture

Organic farming experience in Japanese countryside

By Micaela Braithwaite    - 1 min read

I relocated to the Japanese countryside, in a village called "Aya", in Miyazaki Prefecture, for one month, learning about the culture, history, and local people.

It's a completely different lifestyle than what I am used to living in a bigger city, but I think they have the right idea here-- life is simple, and the rewards are simple, and the happiness is simple.

Check out a few activities as we cook the most amazing vegetarian lunch (I didn't even realize it was vegetarian!) and learn to weave some textiles!
