Rent-A-Field in Tokyo ☆ Farming Experience

July 22, 2012

After our fabulous trip in Texas, my three kids and I stopped by in Tokyo before returning to our home in Jakarta, Indonesia and spent a week with my family. I try to make a point to visit our families at least once a year during summer because we live far away from both sides of our families being in Indonesia. This summer we stayed in Tokyo only for a week and it felt too short, but I am thankful that I was able to stay with my family with the three kids, which is a lot to ask.

My dad who is fully retired, started renting a little farm recently not far from our home and takes farming classes on weekends. He took my girls to the little field he rented and they had a chance to harvest some vegetables. The girls loved it and it was a great hands-on experience for them to learn where vegetables come from and how they grow. My dad is doing a great job growing vegetables. It’s hard for me to feed water to plants who don’t talk. I can’t even keep small plants alive for a month myself!



I had fun snapping shots of the girls who enjoyed harvesting vegetables at the field.


I am back in Jakarta after spending three weeks in Texas and a week in Tokyo. My sister was visiting us in Jakarta for a week after our return in Jakarta, but she just left to go back to Japan. Now I have no excuse for not blogging. I have so many photos I would like to post. Now that our vacation is over that it’s time for me to set a routine again and get adjusted back to more of a regular schedule. Summer break from school is nice because I don’t have to worry about getting up early in the morning, making lunch for my first daughter, helping homework and putting kids to bed by a certain hour. I hope I can keep up with a school routine again.

    It’s so great for kids to see where food really comes from. What in the world is that huge root?!

      Hehehe. It’s called Daikon radish. We eat daikon a lot in Japan. I like to make daikon salad like in this post.
