Mr. Adachi loves the cultivation of small trees. really he loves. Only recently retired, Adachi spent much of his career wake up at 3 in the morning with water and tend to their trees before work – serious dedication for an amateur. Over the years Adachi has developed some techniques for the development of small size trees, and shows no signs of slowing down.
