At present we are not organic, but we are aiming to be organic in future
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
Iriomote island doesn't have a lot of materials, so we sew our own diapers and napkins, and reuse/remake many things to try to reduce garbage. We collect things from the seashore or mountains and use them creatively.

The host can understand a little french, but cannot read or write in french. The host can not speak English at all.

Life on Iriomote island is very simple and without excess. We believe that by reducing waste by reusing, our lifestyle will connect to living in nature, with nature, and to protecting nature.

We mostly eat the seasonal vegetables and fruits that the people of Iriomote grow, and local fish. We live by connecting and cooperating with those around us.

Living a relaxed natural life, connects to living organic and eco-friendly.

We can give wwoofers information on hiking, camping, snorkeling and beach combing. Also on wwoofers holidays we may invite wwoofers to come on canoeing and trekking tours.

Also, we can make bags, boxes, accessories etc. from natural materials(we begin by collecting the natural materials) with wwoofers.

We take wwoofers on the condition that they like children, as we have 2. (ages 7 and 4)

* We cannot accept wwoofers that do not have a photo on their profile.
Looking forward to meeting you!!


The assistance will include cleaning guest rooms at the pension, helping with meals, and cleaning the area around the inn. Help is for women.
If you love the sea, mountains, rivers, and nature, please come!
Currently, we are only recruiting women who can speak English and can help for more than two weeks.
Thank you.
