Thank you for replying to this post.  We do see questions about how to go about finding an internship or apprenticeship in Japanese gardening, so I believe your information will be appreciated!

Thanks again,

Good to hear.  When JGO pursued this, the prison administration declined due to safety concerns.  But now there is a Japanese garden where a Japanese garden is most needed!

I know this is an old thread, but it's still online and without answer, so I like to share how I got my placement for a landscaping-training in Japan:
I live in Switzerland. Nine years ago I had the great opportunity to make a one year training at a small but very good landscaping company in Hamamatsu, Japan.
I contacted agrimpuls.ch, a group founded by the Swiss farmers Association. They offer placements for exchange training with foreign countries, especially in farming, but also in gardening. So they replied, asked for mor information about me and sent me some forms to fill out and after one or two appointments with the responsible person I had my contract with the host family in Japan. I think I received the contract a bit more than 6 months in advance of my training.
Maybe there is a similar organisation in your country where you could ask?

Best regards

Thanks to all of you that sent info on brooms!! I've had some major health issues and have not been able to stay in contact.
But things are finally getting better.
Sounds like some good resources. I'm excited to look into all of them
