Hi, would you like learning Japanese traditional knowledge of ethnobotany? Uda is the origin of harvesting medicinal plants, which is recorded in the Japan's oldest chronicle, Nihon-Shoki. Since then, a lot of today's famous pharmaceutical companies were established in this city. You can see around the oldest medicinal plant garden, and learn about plants, by tasting, smelling, and using plants to make vegan soy milk yogurt. Soy bean in versatile crop in Japan, used for making miso, soy milk, tofu, natto, and so on.

Il tuo host
I studied agroecology in the Netherlands, and traveled around villages in all over Asian countries in seek for traditional knowledge of ethno-botany and food preservation. Especially, I got interested in plant medicine, and shifted to the home town of Japanese herb culture, Uda city. The city boasts one of the oldest medicinal herb garden in Japan, and the history of collecting herbs dates back to 7th century, when the capital of Japan was located in Nara. Working as an interpreter, I guide my guests to the herbal garden and show ancient wisdom to live with nature.
