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!!
