Today, agricultural organizations with large farm size have been playing an important role in Japanese agriculture. In this research, I attempted to show the history and conditions of two agricultural organizations which have succeeded to enlarge their farm size. They have existed for about 30years. Now, they are both responsible for the maintenance of the agriculture, especially rice growing, in their own regions. However, they equally have problems concerning the alternation of generations. Both organization have made their own efforts to get younger members, in part, in vain. It seems to be important that both organizations can take many conditions of each member into consideration, such as family life-cycle.
