The Irodori Project is based in the mountain town of Kamikatsu, Tokushima Prefecture. Farmers, most of them female and well past traditional retirement age, cultivate leaves and flowers to use as decoration for Japanese food in restaurants and hotels across the nation. The project has been widely reported in Japan as an example of successful regional revitalization, and a way to enable elderly farmers to continue profitable work.
