  • In a house separate from the main house
  • In a WWOOFer & worker house (building)
  • In a traditional Japanese Tatami mat room
  • Using a Japanese futon

I am slowly learning English from the wwoofers but it is still quite limited.

20年前に都市生活者の為の農業塾を開き、多くの研修生が巣立っていきました。6年前より自給的な暮らしを体験する場として、ここを開きました。娘がカナダでWWOF体験したことから影響を受け、当農園も日本国内にとどまらず、より広く出会いと交流の場にしたいと考えています。卵、野菜が中心ですが、小麦栽培、天然酵母のパン作り、豆腐、味噌、漬物作り、綿栽培、ウール加工、機織など、時期によりさまざまです。私は、日本語以外はしゃべれませんが、海外ウーファーとのお付き合いで、スタッフの英会話力がかなりアップしたので、なんとか日常会話は通じると思います。日本語のしゃべれない方でも、身振り手振りでコミュニケーションをとろうと努力する方は大歓迎です。メール問い合わせのみ英文でも対応できます。
季節にもよりますが、滞在期間に応じて、衣食住色々な体験ができます。自転車お貸しします。駅までの送り迎えも、相談に応じますので、近場の観光地などには足がのばせると思います。

20 years ago I opened a school (training institute) where people living in a city could study the organic farming. Many people have lived and worked with us and became independent farmers themselves.
It’s been 6 years since I started “Keiko's Farm House「百姓の家」”; visitors can experience a self-sufficient life.
I was influenced by my daughter’s WWOOF experience in Canada. I hope many WWOOFers, not only from Japan, but also other countries around the world, will come stay with us and share valuable time here.
You can try many experiences such as poultry and vegetable farming, wheat growing, making natural yeast bread, tofu, miso, Japanese pickles, cotton growing and processing wool. The jobs available depend on the season and a length of your stay.

Though I can speak only Japanese, some of us have been learning English from foreign Wwoofers and improved in speaking English. You’re welcome if you cannot speak Japanese, but try to communicate by gestures. I accept e-mails in English.

I can lend you a bicycle, or pick up & drop off at a station, so you can go sightseeing nearby on days-off during your stay.

We are looking for WWOOFERs who would like to stay with us on December !
It would be perfect if you are looking for a fruitful WWOOF experience for more than 1 weeks, and we might be the one you are looking for!

Our work is not simple, but includes a lot of varieties. We grow different varieties of vegetables here, and we also have some lovely animals here to look after for. Our work might be busy and hard, but everyone is working here happily and warmly. We hope that you could get a lot of experience working in our farm.

We have rooms for WWOOFERs to stay in. They are very modest and simple traditional Japanese rooms separate from the main house. We have sheep, ducks and cats around the houses, and they are all very friendly. We would also provide meals or our organic products for you to cook with. WiFi is available here for you to keep contact with your love ones. We hope you could enjoy a simple and healthy stay here.
We are looking forward to your stay. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to send us a mail!
