Do you want to travel? Agri×Concierge
The concept of the plan is Agriculture + Interactive Tourism. It aims to create opportunities for women to be active in work and to help elderly farmers. We plant to develop a concierge desk utilizing vacant houses in front of Nomi-shi station, based on the concept of "resort concierge" in the hotel industry. We focused on healthy and traditional Nomi vegetables such as pesticide-free Yuzu and Kaga-Maru Imo. On the desk, tourists can choose one from the list of farming experiences that can be done on that day. Then, concierges from local women's agricultural association assist and arrange contacts local farmers and tourists.
This time, I am honored to receive such an honorable prize.
