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
I volunteer and provide support for the revival of the northeastern stricken area by cultivating rapeseed flowers (Brassica napus) and making rapeseed oil. We don't watch TV, and we do not smoke. We try to use everything for as long as possible and recycle what cannot be reused anymore. I am making a self-sufficient eco-house, which will be opened as a cafe. Since the nearby region has many mountains and access to the sea, I do many outdoor activities, such as trekking and kayaking in the sea. I also do various workshops and events in the eco-house, and sell my products in the prefecture's regional fresh market.

We welcome one WWOOFer at a time, and a few WWOOFers too can stay with us simultaneously

I decided to live in Iwate after volunteering for the earthquake disaster relief program post-Great East Japan Earthquake in Tohoku. I created, by myself, an eco-car that does not require stopping at any gas station; currently I am building an eco-house at a stricken area, organising events such as concerts, providing support to nearby fisheries and forestry-related companies, and doing agricultural work in the area. In my eco-house, I have a full self-sufficient lifestyle by making both my own electricity and my own car fuel.

I think about Earth's future, its environment, and how we should explore its energy for our sustainable living; in fact, it's my greatest wish to make a fulfilling living by tending to nature. As my goal is to help support planet Earth with kindness and responsibility - and without being motivated by money - we welcome those who like traveling, those who like being around people and those who have an interest in nature.

環境は山と川、そして海はリアス式海岸に面して四季を感じることができる素晴らしいロケーションに囲まれています。 また、私たちは食とエネルギー自給に力を入れています。家の電気や車の燃料も自分たちでエネルギーを作り 太陽光発電用のパネルの拡張をし、タイニィハウスやシェアハウスを作っているところです。 長期滞在できる方は、トレッキングやシーカヤックなども楽む機会があり、自然豊かな場所で色々な体験をすることができます。自然やモノを大切にし、気持ち良い生き方を目指し、エネルギーと食の自給を楽しみながら共に家族のように暮らしたい方をお待ちしています。
We aim to create a peaceful and sustainable life in a relatively warm area (Kamaishi City, Iwate Prefecture) facing the Sanriku Coast in Tohoku Iwate, making fields, rice fields, eco-houses and utilizing natural renewable energy. The work is mainly agriculture, preparing for the opening of the cafe, and please help with carpentry. (I would like someone with experience in DIY as much as possible.)

We are looking for wwoofers. The acceptance period is hope October.

Both the mountain and the river are surrounded by a wonderful location where you can feel the four seasons facing Ria's coast in the environment. Also, we are making energy for ourselves and household electricity and car fuel. We are also expanding the panels for photovoltaic power generation and making Tiny House and share-house. For long-term residents, you can spend time with local people, enjoy trekking and sea kayaking. I am looking for a person who can make new future together and enjoy it. Let's all come and enjoy the splendor of the area together.
