WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
I live on the hill with a beautiful view over the setting sun, the morning sun, and the stars.
While self-building a building with consideration for the earth, I create a place where I can live like myself without spending money. I am preparing to go back to the field of natural farming again with childcare and house building and want to stay in a small hotel.
We are looking for people who can help you with fields, rockets, baths, room making (easy carpentry and painting), chicken coops, goat cots, etc.
There is a swimming pool in the garden so you can enter during the summer. The food is made of spring water from the mountain. You can enjoy fishing, hot spring, the sea etc.
We look forward to working with our couple, a small twin boy, and a smaller three years old girl!

1. early or mid December, 2021 to the 6th May, 2022.
2. more for 2 weeks, it's good to stay so longer.
**A person who can eat anything without likes and dislikes.

Nozawaonsen is all perfectly safty.
We own a small guest house with 8 guest rooms surrounded by beautiful nature.
Only my family and wwoofers support our guest house. There's no employee.

We mainly cook traditional Nozawa dishes with organic vegetables
from nearby farms and other places. Our guests like our dishes so much that many guests come here every year.
Most guests come in winter. Please support us to do houseworks mainly.

You can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, hot springs, trekking and communication with our family, wwoofers and villagers in Japanese and English.
We have two ski lift tickets for wwoofers, so you can use them by turns. You can rent snowboard or ski at 500 yen per day.
There are 13 free hot springs in the village. The color and the temperature of water are differ from each other and you can go there in your free time.
You can take many beautiful pictures of mountains and old village. You can have a lot of sweet apples with natural apple honey inside.

You can learn Japanese, Origami(Japanese traditional paper craft), and how to cook traditional Nozawa dishes.
In spring, you can enjoy picking up mountain vegetables, learn about materials used in Chinese herbal medicine and gardening.

Many wwoofers are very friendly and they go snowboarding and hot spring together. They say that our food is so delicious.
You can ask me anything about us and the village.

***Our daily work time is less than six hours. Therefore there's no regular day off.
You might have a day off when there's few guests. If you want to have it, please let us know.

***You should wear suitable clothes.
See through clothes make our guests feel uncomfortable.

We are looking forward to seeing you!
Thank you.

WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
We (Tatsuya and Sho) inherited 1ha(2.5acre) of mountain field and an old Japanese traditional house last year in Shizuoka, where we live with our daughter Mon(age1) and a black cat. We are planning to reproduce field and orchard in organic way to grow vegetables, and to renovate an old house and a guest house with natural materials.

We finished a big honeymoon (2015~2017 around the world) and came back to Japan.
During 2years honeymoon, we did Workaway / WWOOFing in Japan, U.S, Spain, Germany and Morocco.
we met various kinds of people and shared stories with them.
We saw how people live, what people believe.
And this time, we would like to share the experience in our place.

I live in the middle of Japan. A big town nearby is Nagoya. It is convenient to go anywhere in Japan. Would you like to grow and study fruits and vegetables? Fruits are mainly grapes. We cultivate 20 kinds of Japanese vegetables per year. Why do not you interact with local people and experience Japanese culture and customs?

WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
My town Ichijima has been known as " organic village" which has a long history in organic agriculture. !st organic organization,Ichijima Organic Agriculture I belong to was establsihed in 1975. We joined into host member of wWOOF recently. My farm is integrated livestock(free range chickens) and veges.and produced over 40 vriety of vegetables over the year in teikei system (similar to CSA).
Beside farming, I also participate in several national as well as international acitivities in organic. such as IFOAM, JOAA and etc.
I practice yoga almost every day and karate in shotokan style on Wednesday.You can join into training as you wish.
Basically, we want to meet with wwoofers who are willing to learn about organic agriculture as well as Japanese culture,religion, politics,educaiton as well as economy and society. We want to enjoy conversation and also want to bring something in you so that we can learn from you even. We do not want visitors without clear motivations or obejctives in visiting Japan.
I am not orginally from this village. I was born in Hiroshima. Spending time in Brazil and US in my high school days, learning oriental value in India through Gandians, walking from Tokyo to Hiroshima myself and being inpired by fukuoka nature farming,I established my farm after working in consumer cooperative in 1989. I really love organic agriculture and want to let more people to understand meaning of organic farming. I want to help expanding organic globally. I love Asian tradion, buddism, gandhian philosophy, ecological concept, tradional martial art, and yoga, Zen art and manga.
We want to accept people from everywhere, do not worry though not speaking Japanese, we can speak English and explain you when you want to know Japanese history, culture, religion,politics and ecomy but We do not accept following wwoofers as we have learned from bitter experiences in the past.
1,Late sleeper.
In any seasons, life in the farm start early. During winter time, I do yoga and in summer time, we start working early. We do not want those who always staying late at night or do not come on time in the morning. We do not want those who come back midnight in day-off or working with computer really late at night when every body in the house have already selpt. Main room where everybody come together will close at 10pm.
2, Dirty visitor.
We do not want those who have never clean dirty clothes and do not mind clothes being sweaty when other people do not want to be close to you. We do not want those who do not take shower for a long time. Or spreading garbage, leaving empty cans, leaving wetty bath mat, leaving cap of the toilet open,staying in the room with dusty working clothes bringing dusts into the room or house from the field.
3, Silent claimer
Please do not hesitate to ask us any questions when you feel that you are not comfortable. we do not care whether person is talktive or quiet but we do not want those who do not satisfied but stay quiet and complain later.We also do not want apathetic person who just visit farm to spend time or not interested in Japanese culture and coming to farm to pass the time.
4.food waster
We do not waste food and this is the principle of my orgnaic farm. We grow rice, eggs and vegetables with special care. We will be disappointed when wwoofers leave the food without any excuse or pick up many food on the table when he or she can not eat later. Not only the foods on the meal but also we do want any wwoofers who carelessly waste the food when someone else is starving on the earth. We understand there are different cultures in the world where leaving the food is a good manner in order to show the chef that you enjoyed the meal but not in here! In same reason, we do not want those who carelessly waste the water when water on the earth is scarce.
5. loud party campers
We want to enjoy together and having a good time together but we do not want those who speak out loudly in outdoor at late night around my house. Most of our neighboring villagers will sleep earlier and want to wake up early in the morning.
In order to enjoy together, hope to keep above rule and if you feel rules are too strict.please find other host.

If you want to search more about me, search "Shinji Hashimoto Organic " or "Shinji Hashimoto Organic Teikei" on the web. If you understand Japanese,then search「橋本慎司 有機農業」,
You will find all the lectures I gave domestically as well as abroad.
We eat lot of vegetables but not possbile to prepare particularly for vegetarians in meals.
We sometime accept an intern who wish to bcome an independent organic farmer in the future in this area.
There is a day-off once a week either on Saturday or Sunday and sometimes on Tuesday. During the day-off, my wife is also day-off so basically meals will not be prepared for that day. I highly recommend you to go for a short trip as there are lots of beatiful site in Tanba.

WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
Me and my wife started our new life as a farmer by reclaiming waste land near Mt. Iwaki 18 years ago. Our first year of reclamation of this land we lived without electricity. First we put a bridge on creek, made a road and built our house. And now we are delivering our natural farming vegetables to our customers every week. Our vegetables are all pure bred varieties. And with these vegetables, mushrooms, and our free range chickens we are eating pretty much self-sufficiently.
We finish work at 3:30 pm every day.
We are looking forward to share our experience with you. So feel free to send message to us.

Učím se česky.

We are looking for WWOOFER(s) who can stay with us not shorter than 1week.
*I'm sorry to say, we do not accept WWOOFERs who have taken vaccination of Covid-19. Because they are emitting harmful S. protein from their body.

Our place is near Kintetsu Osaka line. You can go day trip to Nagoya, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Ise.

We are welcome everyone who is interested in our life style. We need your hands to pursue our dream on making our village international. You can support us by helping farming, house keeping and taking care of my children. It would be nice if you could promote our guest house and our village to your family and friends in your country...

Since we have small children, we would like to have child friendly and non-smoking WWOOFERs.

I may not have enough time to keep attention to you all the time. Those who can work alone would be appreciated.
