    • Interviews and articles by “TOKYO LOVERS”
      TOKYO LOVERS report on seasonal events, food ingredients, restaurants, and other such matters in Tokyo.

      *What is TOKYO LOVERS?
      TOKYO LOVERS is a group of people from all walks of life, such as food experts and fashion models, who have gathered with the aim to “actively cheer on the agriculture, forestry, and fisheries industries in Tokyo,” taking the opportunity of TOKYO GROWN’s renewal. Through reporting and experience, they produce vivid contents for online articles and SNS.
    • Interviews of young farmers
      Young people actively involved in agriculture are interviewed. The attraction of Tokyo’s agriculture and their passion for it are told in the form of a message to those who plan to work on a farm.
      ⇒The first interview covers Kobayashi Farm (Musashimurayama City, Tokyo), where visitors can pick mikan oranges.
