Freuden Yachiyo is community garden that created as one of the practical exchange experience efforts between urban and rural communities, these 60 parcels are the first of their kind in Japan.
Our facilities were designed after the Kleingarten in Germany. Through the carefree stays here, we offer you peace of mind and plenitude by inviting you to experience the joy of farming and refresh your mind and body.
Forums for communication between urban and rural communities include an assembly hall, a conversation room, a processing room where you can process things like miso paste, and a cooking classroom where non-member community residents can participate.
An amphitheater is available for a variety of events. We also have a shared-use garden.

What Is Kleingarten (lease-based community gardens)?
The farmland leasing system popular in Germany is the prototype.
Members sign a lease agreement to grow vegetables, fruits, and flowers while staying in a cottage built inside the parcel.
The system features community farming instead of independent farming.
Lending itself to raising children in nature, enjoying life at a "second house," promoting urban green conservation, and creating satisfaction with life after retirement, this system is spreading from Germany to the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Austria, Sweden, and other European countries.
