Agriculture Course
*A:Agriculture Z:Livestock L:Life Science U: U-Course

Tajima Agricultural High School, affectionately known in the community as Tanno, was founded in 1976, nestled on the hill of Togayama in Yoka-cho. The school was originally formed as a joint venture between Yoka High School and Toyo-oka Argricultural High School. 
It is a 3-year coeducational senior high school with approximately 300 students aged between 15-18 years old. It has the unique distinction of being the only agricultural high school in the Tajima region of northern Hyogo Prefecture, and one of the only senior high schools in Hyogo Prefecture with an agricultural curriculum. Students elect to concentrate in one of three courses: agriculture, livestock, or life science.


) We are never reluctant to work our hardest.

2) We have an utmost respect for life.

3) We aim higher and higher to be better and better each day.


One of the central tenets of Tanno is that through agricultural education, it is possible for each student to fully develop his true personality and abilities. Faculty members endeavor to encourage students' own self-realization as well as to foster the development of upstanding citizens who not only contribute to the advancement of the community but also function as contributing members of the local community and greater society. Additionally, students are expected to

1) be energetic, passionate, and creative  2) develop sound faith in and principles toward life and humanity   3) harness the  skills, knowledge and ability needed to effectively manage farms and promote modern agriculture in Japan.


To promote a desire for life-long learning, students are challenged to acquire essential and indispensable knowledge and skills, and to develop the positive attitude fundamental for life-long learning.  Students are challenged to cultivate their hearts and minds in order to be a vital part of society.  Students are also encouraged to deepen their personal ethical values and canons, including self-control and sympathy to others. Through a broad range of hands-on experience and activities, the faculty work to nurture amongst the students the willingness to learn, the ability to think critically,   the capacity for self-expression , and the desire to express personal creativity. In this environment, students are educated according to their aptitudes and not just their abilities.


The school aims to foster among the students:

a solid educational foundation and essential skills and habits for daily life;

a positive attitude toward lifelong learning through hands-on experience;

an interest in understanding and respecting different cultures through international activities and exchanges;

an utmost respect for both life and human rights in order to be a part of a 'cooperative society'


To achieve these aims, students are offered extensive career guidance, and active agricultural education.
In order to create a school of distinction, the faculty collaborates extensively with parents and families,
the community, and other organizations. Teachers also participate in comprehensive in-job training and

ontinuing education to improve their teaching styles and methods.


fundamental purpose of the school is to encourage the local youth who will one day play an important role as agricultural leaders in Tajima. The faculty and staff serve as advocates for young people in order that they may become not only successful farmers but also admirable citizens. Students also study progressive agricultural practices and  the most advanced techniques while also giving special consideration to the environment so as to serve as both models and a catalysts for positive change among  local agricultural industries.

The Agriculture course is designed to provide an opportunity for students to learn
the methods and techniques needed to raise the plants and vegetables best suited to
the needs and environmental characteristics of the Tajima region.
Agriculture students raise a diverse range of crops including horticuitural
(small plants and flowers)
, mushrooms, vegetables, rice, and fruits. In this course students
also examine new techniques in cooperative ventures with local farmers and organizations
as well as learn how to function as a future farmer with a career in agribusiness.


The focus of the Livestock Course is to assist students in learning the most modern methods
and techniques necessary to raise and manage industrial livestock, as well as train future
generations of livestock farmers. The Livestock Course has four main divisions: cows, pigs,
broiler chickens and laying chickens. Students devote extensive time to studying the regionfs
famous Tajima Beef Cows, and promoting the schoolfs own private label chickens,
Tan-no Dori
, which are healthier and tastier than usual broiler chickens.

The school maintains approximately 30 breeding beef cows, 20 fattening cows, about 120
laying hens, and 10 breeding sows. About 24,000 broiler chickens and 200 pigs are
produced annually.  It is the expressed desire that students will one day be the leaders
in the local farming industry through the effective application of the knowledge of the latest
technology learned at Tanno.

The Life Science course concentrates on empowering young people to understand, through
both hands-on experience and practice, both community life and the agriculture of our region. 
The course also serves to reinforce a desire among youth to contribute positively to the
development and improvement of the modern society. In this course students deepen their
understanding of domestic management in areas such as culinary skills, food processing,
apparel production, gardening, and child development and care. They cooperate extensively
with the agricultural and livestock students by working collaboratively together with varying

crops and livestock.
