Message from Mr. Akemi

There are few opportunities to touch the soil, and there are many things in the virtual world that have a lot of ways of thinking and thinking. What are those children born by growing plants in the ARK Hills garden? I think that various emotions are actually created as a touch from soil, sowing seeds, care, and watching for growth. And such a variety of emotions must be a source of rich hearts and minds that create creativity and imagination. "GRE EN taking advantage of the blessing from nature of the four seasons in WORKSHOP", this ARK Hills that learn just because your garden, we will tell fun through play.
