I was brought to the brink of destruction because of agricultural chemicals – chemical fertilizers and insecticides. I can smile like I do today only because I stopped spreading those chemicals. I raise my crops naturally, without relying on pesticides or chemical fertilizers, just like the old days. I want to tell everyone about the wonderful power that Nature has.
I come from the town of Nishiki in Kuma district,
Kumamoto Prefecture, born the eldest son of a Japanese tea-maker.
We began chemical-free tea production in 1978 and in 1985 we were awarded the Minister for Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Prize. In 2007 we acquired the Organic Japanese Agricultural Standard (certification number 0707-A04) and now we provide guidance to tens of young locals in the ways of chemical fertilizer and pesticide-free tea production.
