I mentioned to my guide that I really like hiking and trekking, so she suggested a nature walk around here. It was so peaceful and relaxing to walk along the fields where cows were grazing, into the forest between tree lined paths. The hike took about an hour, which was the perfect length of time.

Known as Dasho Nishioka throughout the country, Late Dasho Keiji Nishioka was sent to Bhutan by the Japanese Government as an agriculture expert in 1964. Ever since, he started working in Bondey Agriculture Farm, he brought about major developments in farming that has changed the livelihood of Bhutanese farmers. Being visionary and farsighted, Dasho not only imparted new knowledge and skills in farming, but also initiated the establishment of three agriculture centers such as Agriculture Machinery Centre, National Seed Centre and National Post Harvest Centre to provide required services throughout the country. Dasho continued to stay in Bhutan after his two-year assignment period and worked in the country for 28 years until 1992

We expected a little more out of this small structure, but it was still cool to look at. Nothing really special, just small and neat.

Fairly basic chorten located in town, so easy to walk by when stopping for lunch or doing some shopping. Not a must-see attraction.

Perhaps you'll be lucky enough to get inside, but mostly it's just a tower-like structure at the end of town which no doubt you will see when you visit Paro.

I visited recently to this chorten and I felt that he has worked so tirelessly for the people of Bhutan. This Chorten is a tribute to Nishioka who came to Bhutan from Japan and introduced modern agricultural methods and agricultural tools to Bhutan farmers. He travelled all Bhutan for years, meet local farmers and their heads and introduced them new methods and tools.
Born in 1933
He was a Japanese Agriculture Expert who came to Bhutan to help modernize its agriculture. He came to Bhutan in May 1964. Dasho Nishoka’s contribution to Bhutan’s development especially in the field of agriculture has been immense and selfless. He died – 21st March 1992. He was conferred the Druk Thugsay Medal (Heart Son of Bhutan), the highest civilian award on 2nd June 1999. His wife received the award on his behalf. Today, Nishoka Bridge, Bondey Farm, AMC, National Seed & Plan Protection Programme, Roads, hospitals, varieties of vegetables, fruits, rice and many more are the results of his vision and dedicated, selfless services to the people of Bhutan.
