We moved to Etajima recently for the ecological living.
We have vegetable garden here and we make handmade soap.
We would like to create a space for visitors to relax.
We provide healthy food, too.
We also have regular mindfulness classes.
We have our NPO called OneSeed to share Mindfulness into education field.
We wish people in different culture can understand and respect each other.

You may feel a little inconvenient as we live in an old fashioned house.
But Etajima is very beautiful place, you can see wonderful sunset over the ocean from here.
Please enjoy this peaceful atmosphere while you stay and help us.
Grow vegetable or herb, help some house renovation, or cooking...you can find job you like.

It will be a heart relaxing opportunity to listen to the sound of ocean and breath the fresh air.

And please share your own experience with us. We are looking forward to learning and growing and sharing with you.
