We were also international agricultural trainees.
The Overseas Agricultural Training Program started in 1952, shortly after the war, and so far more than 15,000 Japanese young people have participated in this training. And even now, after receiving agricultural training in various countries around the world, he returned to Japan and continues to transform agriculture in various parts of Japan.
At any age, human growth never stops. This overseas agricultural training allows you to make many friends in Japan and overseas, experience various lifestyles, and hone not only agricultural techniques but also the "mental techniques" to live as a person.
“We were International Agricultural Trainees, and we will continue to be.”
We hope that this system, which has allowed us to grow both physically and mentally, will serve as a source of growth for you.
