Nagatoro is a beautiful town, and its famous river runs behind the house, so you may explore the surrounding area as you please!

We are concerned about the Coronavirus which is spreading out in the world.
Therefore, we have decided not to have WWOOFers for a while.
As we are enjoying meeting WWOOFers from around the world so much, we feel very sad about it.
Thank you for contacting us, however we would appreciate you could understand this situation.
We hope we will be able to accept WWOOFers again soon after this problem has solved in the world.

We are a small family-run blueberry farm in the beautiful town of Nagatoro. We love getting to know people from all different backgrounds so feel free to reach out regardless of your level of Japanese!

We accept WWOOF'ers all year round, and even for short periods of time like the weekend! We prefer to host people who like children and who take care of their personal hygiene. ❣️
