100% organic


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


Before washing dishes, we wipe oil by paper and wash without chemical product as far as possible. Put food waste into compost. Pour in the garden tea leaves, coffee grounds, waste water and oil waste in order not to pollute drain. we do our best to minimize the garbage we produce, we do not eat at fast food restaurants, we volunteer a lot, we do not smoke, we recycle as much as possible

I live alone at the beautiful countryside on the foot of Mt. Fuji and Hamone. You can walk to waterfall, river, gorge, famous cherry blossom place and ruins of ancient fortress. You can find a lot of traces of people form the 3rd to 20th centuries in this region. The work requires only 2,3 hours per day, mainly to help vegetable cultivation for own consumption, so you have plenty of free time. I sometimes receive my friends of various nationalities such as Japanese, French, Belgium etc, alone or in a group, who enjoy a country life in my house. Two rooms with tatami and futon, toilet and waterbassin are available upstairs for use alone or in a group, for any duration. My son living in Paris returns home twice a year.
I have been working with UN for 22 year in various countries. I would like to receive wwoofers interested in sharing these experiences.
Situated on the foot of Mt.Fuji and Hakone, the surrounding is full of green. My home is for nature lovers. You can walk to waterfall, river, gorge, famous cherry blossom place and ruins of ancient fortress. The work required is to help vegetable cultivation for home consumption, so you have plenty of free time. There are no restriction of age, number nor duration. You can use 2 rooms upstairs (tatami and futon, with toilet and washbasin) solely or in a group. As I have been in many countries for more than 20 years as a UN officer, I would like to receive wwoofers interested in this kind of conversation. My son stays in Paris and returns back twice a year.
