NPO法人ブルーム、フリースクールを運営しています 過去は年間50人ほど受け入れており、ホスト歴は12年目となりました!子供のサポートや農業等、様々な体験を共に行いましょう!多様な方々に来ていただきお互いに成長できることを楽しみにしています!!
また、近隣については世界遺産の一番多い奈良県なので休日には東大寺、奈良公園などの観光アクセスも抜群です 1時間圏内には大阪、京都もあります
現在、コロナ渦で子どもたちへの影響が懸念されるためお越し頂く際には感染対策を丁寧に行って頂くようお願いしています しかし大都市圏の冷遇などはしておりませんのでまずはお気軽にご連絡いただければと思います!
We run NPO Bloom and Free School. In the past, we have accepted about 50 people a year, and we have been hosting for 12 years! Let's have various experiences such as supporting children and farming together! We look forward to having a diverse group of people come and grow together! !!
In addition, since Nara Prefecture has the largest number of World Heritage Sites in the neighborhood, sightseeing access to Todaiji Temple, Nara Park, etc. is excellent on holidays. There are also Osaka and Kyoto within an hour.
Currently, there are concerns about the impact of the corona vortex on children, so we ask that you take careful measures against infection when you come. However, we do not offer cold treatment in metropolitan areas, so please feel free to contact us. I hope you can contact me!







As for foreign residents, we require that they have at least a beginner level of Japanese.
The atmosphere is heartwarming and homey, and we are sincerely grateful for the many woofers who joined us again last year. Our place is full of enriching experiences such as relaxing in a place to stay, growing natural & organic pesticide-free vegetables, working in the fields, chopping firewood, and more. In addition, excellent food awaits you, including handmade o-hagi (rice cakes), chestnut bean paste, sweet potatoes, and bread!

We can confidently recommend this tour for sightseeing in the region. Nara Prefecture is the region with the most World Heritage sites! Todaiji Temple, Nara Park, Kasuga Taisha Shrine, Horyuji Temple, Yoshinoyama Temple, and Yakushiji Temple are all within an hour's train ride. Furthermore, access to Osaka and Kyoto is only about an hour by car or train. Please enjoy enjoyable sightseeing on your holidays!

Our family, both adults and children, love to talk and look forward to many talks with different woofers.

And our non-profit organization supports the independence of young people who are not attending school (children with developmental disabilities) or who have withdrawn from school. If you are interested in supporting the independence of children, youth, and people with disabilities, I am sure we can provide you with a variety of information.

Notice. Our organization operates as a non-profit organization, and we provide support while taking into consideration our overall schedule. Once we have agreed to accept a woofer, we will make sure that the schedule is well organized. Therefore, if you decide to come, we ask that you do not cancel suddenly. Of course, we will accommodate you in case of unavoidable circumstances, so please contact us.

In addition, we require that foreign residents have at least a beginner's level of Japanese.

Furthermore, if you have any concerns, physical or mental problems, or disabilities related to our activities that may limit some of our activities, we would appreciate it if you could contact us in advance. We will do our best to accommodate your situation.

We are in our 14th year of hosting and have been active in the organization for over 30 years. We have had the pleasure of meeting many of you and have had many enjoyable interactions with you. We look forward to continuing to have a variety of enjoyable experiences with the people we have had the pleasure of meeting! If you are interested, please feel free to send us a message!
