Let me present to you a YouTube video named Wakayama (a unique trip to Japan) .
In this video, Prince Aojiru, one of the most famous young millionaires in Japan, visits Wakayama prefecture and introduces its sightseeing spots.
We are farm family for over 100 years and we are a full-time farmer of “Ume, Japanese apricot” and “Orange” which are specialty products in Tanabe.
Also, I work with my son and take care of my grandchild.
I and my wife like cooking and we often invite our friends to our house when we get good fish.
I and my wife like the music, so we join the local chorus group, go to a concert and I used to play the guitar and started playing again to improve my skill.
My hobby is fishing and I enjoy fishing with my friends, so we hope we can have good ocean experience with the guests.
When we take a boat trip, you can see the beautiful scenery in Tanabe and Shirahama from the boat such as the coast and sunrise.
