We moved here in 2009,deciding on living in countryside.We produce organic Japanese green tea on the side of the mountain.We have wonderful view of mountains around.In May and June, we often have milky fog, as if we lived above clouds.Surrounding is very quiet and songs of birds are very beautiful.

We need your help...
to weed the farm
to prune the tea tree
to look after our children and dog and so on.
We especially get busy in harvest season of tea in May.

We try sustainable life as possible.We want to come a cheerful woofer who likes kids and dogs.We maybe can give you some advice if you want to have your own farm in future.
Our schedule is filled up with wwoofers until July.
