There we interviewed with the governer of the city, I studied about bamboo activities in Nagaokakyo-city.
1. the original moethod to grow bamboo shoots well (for tasting better)
2. the way as fertilizer using bamboo. Bamboo is cut into particles, they use those bamboo particles as
a fertilizer to grow vegetables in farm.
They are cool staff , and Nagaokakyo-city is cool, too.
