Hi Hiroyaki, welcome to the forum and thank you for taking the time to join our small community. We really do appreciate that.

Do you have any sort of idea what you are aiming for or is it still in the early stages at the moment?

If you haven't already thought about it might I suggest spending some time thinking about sales. Actually growing fruits, vegetables or whatever isn't too difficult but finding places to sell where you can actually make a living can be a bit more challenging.

Anyway, all the best in your endeavour.

Market gardens selling direct via different channels. I have to stay around in Tokyo for the next year so kind of far off for exact details. Also plan on doing a 1 year apprenticeship at a local farm in Hiroshima once me and my wife are ready to move.
