Food crisis, environmental issues, energy resources depletion – today’s social/economic models have awaken the limitation.
Our future requires recycling-oriented and prosperous coexistence social/economic model in which people over the world can help with each other for enjoying their lives.
Japan has been realizing recycling-oriented prosperous coexistence society within limited land and resource.
Wa-gokoro, the spirit of Japanese who are able to build that society, has been noticed again its value necessary for future in the world.
We will contribute for creating;
the society in which young generation eager to take over farming artisan’s will and skill can advance their dream
the environment which connects directly the successor and those who pursue happiness of delicious food
We will realize an environment in which foreigners and Japanese farmers have contacts and support with each other.
In Japanese agriculture, we will transform tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge with our IT goal, IoT x Cloud.
Thoroughly seeking it, we’re sure to learn the basic concept that nature and human beings are not dichotomy but collaborative subordinate-superior relationship in Japanese farming method.
For future, we assume that IoTｘ cloud technology from overseas needs to be applied to agriculture, and we will specialize the drone area in IoT.
Based on my business experience for quarter-century in Microsoft Corporation, hold hands with overseas partners, collaborate with IT industry, agriculture and their supportive structures like human resource development projects.
We’ll be running to our goal, “IT × Agriculture = Appealing regional treasure to the world”.
