The new series of interviews conducted by Kitagawa Fram, General Director of ETAT pay respects to local people who engage with rice production in this region known for heavy snowfall. They treasure wisdom and traditions nurtured and built by their ancestors who related themselves to nature and navigated through their lives in this heavy snowfall community. We are determined to learn real life in a snow country based upon farming.
