Mushrooms from Akizugawa
My students and teacher, Kojima Sensei grow mushrooms at their school, Akizugawa Elementary School. It is a wonderful place, they have a rice field, sakura, ume, many flowers, tomatoes, cucumbers and other vegetables. The Elementary School and the Junior High School are beside each other and share the land. I made this drawing for Kojima Sensei who with the fifth and sixth graders showed me how they grow mushrooms and let me pick some.
