Moka city. Tochigi prefecture is not far from Tokyo.
It takes 2 and a half hours to come here from Tokyo.

The place where we live in is not in the city but is not exactly in the rural areas, and is quiet and peaceful.
You will have many exciting and many attractive experiences.

We have daughter(14years old)a son(11 years old)and 6years old little girl(*2022)
They are welcoming and friendly. (sometimes too much)

We hope that the WWOOFer who comes here likes children.

I and my wife have much experience living in foreign countries(Latin America and Asia).
So we can understand different cultures and ways of living.

We grow organic vegetables and deliver them directly to our customers. You are able to experience growing different kinds of vegetables.

Every month, we make agricultural products from the vegetables we grow. We make food products such as "miso", "udon", "pickles", "basil paste".
We will teach you how to make traditional preserves products with other friends.

I love to watch football very much, and my daughter has been practicing Dance for six years. It would be good if the WWOOFer who comes shares the same interests as us.
My favorite GHIBLI movies are "Whisper of my heart" "Only yesterday"
and my wife`s are "Castle in the sky" and "Kiki's delivery service "

Thank you for visiting our profile.

We are Bio vegetable farmer, live in Moka city Tochigi Pref.
We have received about 50 WWOOFers from all over the world since 2014.
We hope you would get a great experience and a good memory on our farm.

**My wife started working as a nursery teacher from April 2023.
Also, our eldest daughter and eldest son will go on to high school and junior high school respectively from April, and our lives will change significantly, so we will be suspending hosting for a while.
There is currently no prospect of reopening.
