Come and meet our "New Rice Delivery Team"


Our football players of FC Echigo-Tsumari have formed a temporary new rice promotion team called “New Rice Delivery Team”! They will be sharing the charm of the terraced rice fields and the deliciousness of rice while engaging in activities like FC Echigo-Tsumari’s dances and Kamishibai (paper picture storytelling theatre), inspired by agricultural work. Also, at the Matsudai NOHBUTAI, the “rice character” born from straw will also be waiting to greet everyone.
