I came here 20 years ago and have been farming organically. Japan.
I would be happy to have anyone interested in organic farming come here. We have had many visitors and have enjoyed the cultural exchange. Our main purpose for taking woofer is to expose children to different cultures and let them know about diversity. We also want woofers to learn about Japanese organic agriculture and traditional lifestyle. Our diet is mainly Japanese.beause our diet is traditionally Japanese, it may seem to be a poor diet to people from other countries. We eat mainly vegetables and rice from our own fields. We also eat meat, fish, and eggs, but the quantity may be small compared to overseas diets. Dairy foods are rarely consumed on a daily basis and are consumed as a luxury item. We often eat rice in the morning, so if you eat something other than rice, we ask that you prepare breakfast at your own expense. If they do not have enough food, we can take them to the supermarket and ask them to purchase it on their own.
Since you will be staying with an ordinary family as a member of the family, we believe that you will be able to get a feel for life in a Japanese home. On your days off, you can go mountain climbing nearby with us, explore the area, and we provide you with Japanese cultural experiences. If you are interested in Japanese language and cooking, I can also teach you Japanese and Japanese dishes. Since we are in an environment with children, it may be difficult if you are not comfortable with children.
We hope to help and entertain Japanese families to the best of our ability, but since we live a near self-sufficient lifestyle, we may be lacking in some areas. Please understand this and apply to stay with us.
I'm sorry but we are full until October. We would like to host you since September.Thank you so much.
