Welcome to Cosmo in Yukien!

“Cosmo in Yukien (Yukien means organic farm)” is named after the owners’ wish to make a cozy place for everyone including aliens.
The owners(Jiro-san and Sanae-san) started this organic farm after reading the book called "complex pollution" written by Sawako Ariyoshi about 45 years ago.
They were shocked by the content of this book, and it made them want their family to eat safe and reliable foods, therefore they started this farm with no use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
They use goat manure and yard/kitchen waste as compost.

At the farm, you can make barley miso by using barley which is harvested here and you can also experience the unique culture of this area.

For the past 15 years, more than 100 wwoofers from all over the world have visited their farm.

The owners love to chat , so please enjoy your time chatting with them while your stay here ?
We are looking forward to seeing you at “Cosmo in Yukien” in Shodoshima!
We are looking forward to seeing you in Shodoshima!
