I am a farmer who makes rice and beans mainly of natural cultivation method. It's been fifteen years since I started farming. From experience visiting the world's Eco Villages, I have moved to Hokkaido in search of a safe, secure, and sustainable life for people and the earth.

Besides farming on farm, there are many things to do, such as making fermented foods, helping farmer's market, building house, and etc. I believe that every day is the place to learn something. After a day's work you can also heal your body at nearby hot spring.

Please join to learn together with self-sufficiency, permaculture, transition town, EcoVillage living, fermentation, tiny house, and etc.

Niseko is rich in nature and famous as an international ski resort. I am a farmer mainly making rice, greens, and beans by natural method, and I need help with rice planting, weeding, seeding, and making agricultural products from April to November. Moreover, I have plan to make the Tiny House by self-build and Complete Sun-Dried Salt also in this season.

Please participate together if interested in natural cultivation, parmaculture, life of Satoyama, and reliable&safe food. It doesn't matter for a short or long term woofing. Thank you.
