As staff will teach you how to do it, even small kids can join this activity! Flower garden, with the area of around 4.5 hectares, is like as beautiful as the scene in a picture book.

It was reconstructed from a cattle barn with many vintage chairs and books inside. Handmade whole wheat pizza and pizza are provided during lunch time. Desserts like Chaise cheesecake and muffin using whole wheat flour are also available. Although all are so simple, only fresh ingredients can be used in making all of them.
