One part of our work is organic

Not Applicable

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

無い物は創る、生ゴミを出さない、煙草を吸わない、廃材を薪にする、廃材で家や家畜小屋を建てる、薪ストーブ、ペレット(木質燃料)ストーブを利用している、三食手作りの食事をとる、地産地消をこころがけている、みんなで食事を食べる、人と人とが有機的にかかわる、笑いのある生活、自然のリズムで暮らす、動物と暮らす、など。

We work hard to reduce our waste, and try to create something we do not own. For example, we built our house out of scrap wood, and recycled those used scallop shells for fertilizer. We also use wood fire place and biomass pellets stove. We recycle everything we can, watch our energy use, and have few unnecessary appliances.

我們創造新事物,我們不製造生垃圾,不吸煙,把廢材用作柴,把廢材造作房屋及家畜小屋,我地使用柴爐,環境木質燃燒爐,一日三餐全為手作料理,我們一起談笑,一起進餐,與動物及大自然的調子地生活

Kurikoma Kogen Nature School is a center for outdoor adventure and environmental education in northern part of Japan. Our school is located up in a small mountain, on the slopes of beautiful Mt. Kurikoma. Our life style changes depends on seasons here: winter brings huge snow drifts, autumn brings amazing foliage, and in the spring and summer, the mountain comes alive with plants and animals (including a few bears!)

WE ACCEPT WWOOFERS ANY TIME OF A YEAR, and we ask WWOOfers to stay for a week to stay at minimum. Our community here is friendly, outdoorsy,laid back, and focusing on environmental sustainability. We offer lodging, home-cooked meals, and a variety of outdoor activities to customers all year round (from snowshoeing to water rafting). We also run childrens' educational programs, work to promote the adaptation of biomass energy resources in Japan, and host annual music festivals twice a year.

For WWOOFers, there is always chance to have fun. You will help us running programs, harvesting crops from farm, chopping firewoods, shoveling out snow, and maybe even build some igloos. In return, we provide hearty Japanese home-cooking and cozy bunk rooms in the wooden lodge we built by ourselves. From the windows, you can see all the way down to the valley on a clear day. At night, the stars are bright, and you can take a stroll in the woods. We have dogs, a rabbit! You can take our snow shoes+skis on your day offs.

Please come join our unique community! WWOOFing with us is a great chance to experience rural style Japanese outdoor experience! We look forward to having you. All of our staff speak some English:D
