“Kyodo-gakusha” are groups who believe that it is best to live close to nature in order to seek better living possibilities and to experience the joys and the hardships of life. All Kyodo-gakusha houses are located in villages in the countryside. There are four locations of kyodo-gakusya in Japan, Two in Nagano and other two in Hokkaido. ‘Kyodo’ means ‘work & live together’, ‘gakusha’ means campus in Japanese. Hokkaido Neiraku kyodo gakusha was founded in June 1977. They grow not only rice and vegetables, but also hogs and chickens for maintaining self-sufficient, sustainable farm life. Since 1996, they focus on producing sausages, bacons, salami and white rice as well as selling them directly to local consumers. There are about 20 people living and operating Neiraku Kyodo-gakusha. Most of them are physically or mentally handicapped adults (mostly Male) facing difficulties in society or having a good family relationship. Neiraku Kyodo-gakusha helps those people by making a better living place so that they can live together and cooperates hand in hand with others. Their abilities and characteristics may not work well in school or workplace but they accept them regardless of academic background or social experience.
