It was my first time volunteering overseas, and my 3 weeks stay at Nakagomi Orchard was an amazing and unforgettable experience. The farm is located in the country side near Minami Alps in the Yamanashi Prefecture. It can be a little inconvenient getting around in the area due to the lack of public transport. However, not to worry, bicycles are... More
