There is a really nice café in Isumi City, Chiba Prefecture.
It’s called the “Rice Terrace Cafe” and is located in the community area called “Brown’s Field,” where the Watanuki couple has been working (http://cominca-times.jp/articles/30).
You can enjoy delicious meals that use the local vegetables and brown rice.
In 1999, the photographer Everett Brown and a cooking specialist Deco Nakajima had moved to Chiba from Tokyo to live in a more natural environment. More and more people who wanted to live this way with a natural diet had also migrated to the area, thus establishing Brown’s field. You can enjoy some events here and stay at the guesthouse. Rice Terrace Café is also located in this community.
Weekly special brown rice dishes using local vegetables.
The project involving the old house next to the café is being prepared.
A project using the old house next to the café has been undertaken.
There’s an old house that’s more than 200 years old and was almost demolished because all the residents had left. Ms. Deco wanted to keep up this nice old house, leading her to collect money through fundraising. She has had success and the project has been undertaken.
