Mine worked for the American military base in Naha, growing her own vegetables on the side.

She is still very agile at an advanced age and can even do the splits. „As a farmer, you have to stay mobile, move your body every day. Up and down, like in the field!“ she speaks and does a few squats.

Dancing is also part of her programme, folklore once a week in the senior dance circle.

Her advice for a long life: „Stay natural, think a lot, eat home-grown organic vegetables!“
