Town of Kembuchi website
Kembuchi Town is an agricultural village located slightly north of Central Hokkaido. The town’s main industry is agriculture, which utilizes farmland that comprises around half of the town’s land area. Around 40% of the town’s population works in agriculture. Since 1988, Kembuchi Town has worked on an urban planning agenda based on the theme of picture books. Under the mottos “the mind is cultivated with picture books” and “the body is cultivated with produce made without pesticides,” this agricultural village is developing itself through the power of culture and art.
