Our last days in Obihiro were spent visiting Miyajima Farms, a cooperative community just under an hour outside of Obihiro. The farm was started by a Nozomu Miyajima who got his dairy science degree in Madison and worked in a farm just outside of the city. His farm has award winning cheeses (that we luckily got to sample)! The community is very welcoming to people with disabilities and is seen as a therapeutic setting. You could really feel the healing energy just being there for a few hours. After the visit a few Madison folks and OE hospital staff checked out a local Onsen (Japanese natural hot spring). Later that evening we enjoyed a great goodbye dinner. The next day we left for Tokyo.
