Rice planting program to foster friendship

June 9, 2012

On June 8 when the rainy season began, 63 students from the junior high school and six students from the Nagasaki Prefecture School for the Deaf, both located in Omura City in the Nagasaki Prefecture, joined the rice planting program at the rice field which the junior high school uses for training.

No less than 16 persons aged from 20 to 45 whom the educational group invited from six countries, such as the Netherlands and Venezuela, participated in the program on the spur of the moment, and the area of the ravine was wrapped in the cheer.

Every year the students from both the schools experience the process from planting glutinous rice in about 700-square-meter rice field, rice reaping to pounding steamed rice.
