The day before yesterday, I went to Ten-Sho-An. The weather was good and the vegetables were growing well.
My job for the day was to renovate an unused bathroom to make a storage room for bedding. I also finished storing the futon set that we received a while ago, so we are all set for the upcoming Takenoko training camp.
The camp will be held overnight on May 4th and 5th. We usually hold a camp therapy session at this time of the year, but this year, due to the corona mess, it was impossible to hold a large group camp, so we decided to hold the camp at Ten-Sho-An. It is the time of year for takenoko (bamboo shoots), so we named it the Takenoko Camp.
This is a picture of the bamboo shoots in the bamboo grove last year, I wonder how good they will be this year. They will have grown by the time of the camp, so I’m going to have the participants dig for bamboo shoots, and we’ll have a menu full of bamboo shoots. The participation fee is about 4,000 yen, including meals. The fee for investors is 1,000 yen.
The camp will not only include digging for bamboo shoots, but also bamboo crafting and vegetable harvesting. If you are interested in participating, please apply early from the link below.
