We took part in the Natto Project on Friday, December 7. For those who do not know, "natto" is fermented soy beans. It's something that Japanese people especially from the north part of Japan grow up eating. Students from the Faculty of Social and Environmental Studies grew rice and soy beans and we were taught how to make "natto" using the "wara" (rice straw) and the soy beans they harvested.
