Nakajima-san, Asuka village

「I live in a land called "Asuka".  Right now I am running a farm both as my hobby and my work.  I grow many things throughout the year, from vegetables, sesame, lotus roots, and even sweet beans.  I also make konnyaku, miso, and pon-zu.  Come to our home to experience harvesting crops and making udon.  For women, the grandmother will teach you how to dress in Yukata.  During the summer we go out in the farm and enjoy fireworks.  If it's raining, we can make straw crafts.  Come to Asuka and taste the delicious vegetables.  Don't like vegetables?  You won't be saying that when you leave.
