Experience Another Side of Japan

Escape the city to discover the beautiful mountains north of Kyoto city.


Visit an area of Japan rarely seen by tourists. Watch how the city peels away to reveal the natural beauty of Japan. Relax on a scenic drive through the mountains to the north of Kyoto. The narrow mountain road to the organic farm connects a collection of unique village communities.

“Everything I was looking for and more. Definitely a unique experience. Lots of fun and learned a lot. Chuck is a great host"
“Chuck Kayser is a friendly American midwesterner, long-time resident of Japan, making a go of organic farming in this beautiful countryside area of Shiga - about a 45 min drive from Kyoto.

What is organic farming?

Organic farmers use natural materials such as compost and livestock manure to improve the soil instead of chemicals. We also use environmentally friendly farming practices to control insects, rather than harmful pesticides, to create a healthy growing environment in a sustainable manner.  Our practices include producing our own organic transplants, utilizing fallow fields, and composting food scraps and other materials which would otherwise be wasted. Therefore, people and nature can coexist in harmony as the vegetables we grow are safe, nutritious, and delicious.

For our health, happiness, community, and nature.

Connecting with people like you and providing resources for the next generation.


At Midori Farm, our goal is a sustainable food system. We cultivate unused farmland to produce organic crops in a way that is safe for the environment, the people who work in the fields, and everyone who eats the vegetables grown there.

We not only revive fallow fields and produce over 50 varieties of delicious organic vegetables and herbs, but also provide opportunities to learn about agriculture and organize various events to experience the farm and its natural surroundings.
