About Mokichi Okada
Mokichi Okada was born in Tokyo in 1882. During his life, Okada was confronted with the fact that material prosperity does not necessarily lead to human happiness. It was in Nature that Okada discovered the causes and effects of the problems facing humanity and the principles on which to create an ideal civilization. A new civilization - a world of art imbued with truth, virtue, and beauty coexisting in perfect harmony with Nature - would emerge.
In creating a truly healthy civilization that is in harmony with Nature, Mokichi Okada began to construct small prototypes of such a true civilization. At the prototypes, people could directly experience what true civilization is like and could incorporate it into their daily lives. Although industrial society makes agriculture remote from our daily lives, farming has always been an integral part of human culture.
