Kodo be the farmwas a once in a lifetime experience! Every day we learned so much about the bees and Aki was happy to answer any questions we had. Aki and his girlfriend Michelle were amazing hosts! We had great food every day and visited some amazing places! We can't thank them enough and we have made friends for life.

The work was fun and interesting and there was no stress. At firstthe the farmsounds daunting, but things become smoother as you get used to it. Aki-san was also very flexible with my schedule and he taught me a lot about many different things. I hope there is another chance in the future. But overall a great host!

Working here was amazing! Akinori was very thoughtful about the well-being of us volunteers, and ensured that we were doing different jobs, activities and visiting new places every day. I learnt a lot about the structure and behaviours of the farmcolonies, the processes ofthethethe farm, and acquired new practical skills whilst getting to appreciate Tokushima's beauty. Akinori also shared with us a lot of his knowledge about agriculture, flowers, animals and Japanese history, having grown up in the Japanese countryside. A fantastic experience, especially for those interested in ecology and biology.
