We live a traditional Japanese lifestyle in our home in the countryside. I work daily in organic farming and my artwork, but there are many other activities that must has to be done regularly, as well. If you join us in Daisen in Tottori prefecture, you will not be a guest, but rather a contributing member of our family, and this is a role we value tremendously. Our days include 6 hours of help, but also the preparation of traditional Japanese meals, the building of fires for stove and bath, and other things. Please be prepared for these things if you choose to join us here. Arigatoo gozaimasu!

100% organic
We have an organic attitude of sorts, but we do not go out of our way to be organic or alternative, rather, we do what suits us at the time
We grow a wide variety vegetables (60 varieties) and cereals for our personnal use. We try to eat only our farm products. We cook with a fire stove and brazier. We also use a wood stove to warm the bath (we have no shower). We need a lot of wood, so we often have to chop wood.
Our house is located in mountains and we have to fix and maintain it. We use most often recycled or salvaged materials.
We have no tv but we use internet a little bit. (We have proveided wifi access to wwoofers)
We don't smoke.

A person that doesn't mind physically challenging work, hot and cold weather depending on the season and insects. People who like children. We have a old traditional bath with no shower, because there is no gas. It is only the bath of firewood. An interesting and unique experience.
We eat simple, delicious japanese food. We would like uncomplicated people to join us. We cannot accept vegan or any other special diets.

自給的な暮らしをしながら、墨絵・木彫りの作品を作り 個展活動を続けています。震災のボランティアや 海外数カ国をバックパックを背負い旅した経験から 現在の暮らしにたどり着いています。


私達も wwooferの方達から学べることを楽しみにしています。
We try to live from our farm products and to be self-sufficient. I make art (wood carving and Japanese calligraphy-- shodo) and I have several exhibitions a year.
I choose that life after travelling in Nepal. I travelled in the mountains, visiting several remote villages where people lived self-sufficient. I thought there was nothing, next town was one week walking. But they told me they were happy and fulfilled. I was very surprised, and I changed my mind about how to live and think about self-sufficiency. One year after, a big earthquake happened in Kobe. I participated in volunteer activities to help the earthquake victims for 6 months. This experience made me understand what I want for my life.

^Hello. I am SAVO.
^^Now, I would like to update the web, so I am looking for a person who is confident in PC operation and who can create a slide show of photos. Of course, sometimes the field also helps.^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Hello dear WWOOFers!

We are in urgent need of WWOOfers.

We started this farm in 2013, from almost nothing. there was an old abandoned house and everything was covered in vegitation. it has taken years of effort and help from people from around the world to create the place we now call home.

Work on the farm is plenty and varied - we can always find something for people to do!

We make and grow much of our own food, so a lot of farming is done here, which includes weeding, planting, removing insects (Around our house we have a lot of insects) and harvesting.
In winter time we make basic of japanese traditional cuisine, those of which include Koji, Miso, Soysauce and other fermented foods. It is a very interesting process.

Because we have no gas heating - we require much wood for heating the house and water we use for bathing, so we have work in moving, cutting, harvesting, and stacking lumber.

we, together with volunteers from around the world have built most of the things on the farm, including a hut, house extensions, an outdoor stove and more. this sometimes requires labor intensive work, including moving earth and big rocks.

While this may sound difficult - we also love taking breaks to enjoy nature and breath the clean mountain air. we do everything to respect the amazing people who come here to help us, and we deeply honor and appreciate them as part of our family. We never expect anything from someone that we would not expect from ourselves.

If any of this seems interesting to you, please feel free to contact us.our family would love to accept you if you from anywhere you come from, without discrimination. Currently we only have 1 room for volunteers, and we can accept maximum 2 people at the same time, but we can always find interesting solutions for any problem ;)

We usually prepare and eat meals as a family together with the woofers :)
We usually eat simple Japanese food from our garden and local farmers. We want to accept WWOOFers that are open to everything we serve.

Because we only have one kitchen, we unfortunately cannot cater to vegan or gluten free diets and we cannot cater vegetarian, macrobiotic...etc.

So we welcome you if you can enjoy a simple life in the nature. We live in a small valley with a beautiful view of Mt. Daisen. It is very pleasant and quiet here, with a nearby creek and forest. We would love to teach our WWOOFers about living an organic and self sufficient lifestyle.

We are currently working on a new building project, making a 3 by 7 metre pavilion shelter in front of our main house, and so would warmly welcome anyone with an interest in carpentry or construction work! We mainly use only traditional Japanese construction techniques. Also, as all the work is done manually this project will require some heavy lifting.

I'm sorry, but I can not respond to those who can not speak either English or Japanese.

We are happy to welcome energetic, positive WWOOfers that we can share and exchange experiences and knowledge with.


Thank you
