Various collaborative projects are underway to commemorate ARI’s 50th anniversary!

We are pleased to announce our new collaborative project with a local cafe, Klasse Espresso. Klasse Espresso is a beautifully renovated storehouse next to Tokotoko, a community development facility in Otawara City, Tochigi Prefecture.

How many grains of rice can be obtained from a single rice plant?

Let’s learn more about rice – Japan’s staple food! Although it is often not taught at school, you can learn about how rice is produced and how much time and effort goes into its cultivation, all through hands-on workshops!

On Saturday, September 16, the anniversary will be celebrated and graduates from 62 countries will gather via online live streaming. We hope you will join us for both the collaborative projects and the anniversary event!
