Setouchi is an area in the west part of Japan, located between Shikoku Island and the mainland of Japan including the island sea. Setouchi Islands is ranked 7th of 52 places to go in 2019 by The New York Times. “Japan’s ancient Setouchi region, which includes the Seto Inland Sea’s islands and coastal areas, will host the Setouchi Trienniale 2019, a major art fair held in three seasonal installments; sites in 2019 include the less-frequented islands of Teshima and Honjima, where you can better experience the balance of nature and art. One hour south of the “art islands” via ferry or the Shinkansen bullet train, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, one of Japan’s most visited sites, reopens in spring 2019 after an eight-year, $51 million refurbishment. Setouchi is also looking to draw a fresh crop of cyclists, with new trails winding through local citrus and olive groves and a dedicated Shimanami bike ferry that opened in October 2018 connecting Japan’s main island of Honshu to the region’s lesser-visited island of Shikoku”

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

"This workcamp has been organized with a group of farmers since 1995. The project has been held mostly in March, but stopped in 2011-17 due to the local circumstances and revived in 2018. Since the workcamp in 2018 was successful, they have decided to do twice in March and this one for 2019. The project started by the links with the President of NICE who had a farm stay here in his student days. The island has rich, beautiful sub tropical nature with corral leaf on the beach without being polluted by the tourism. As the location is isolated and very far from the cities, they can hardly get the paid workers to help their farm work, so vols. help it to protect their industry and life!"
