WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
Our pension is a beautiful wooden house, built in 2004. It's surrounded by beautiful flower fields, including the famous Shikisai-no-Oka. In spring and summer, the fields are beautiful palettes of soft colour, and visitors from all over the world come to visit.

We're also in the midst of expanding our grounds. There is a newly built guesthouse (cottage) for our guests, as well as a small storefront for fresh food/snacks that will be operational soon.

WWOOFers that have experience in construction and carpentry are very welcome to come and help design/plan the expansion of our grounds! We hope to add more cottages/guesthouses, as well as a mini campground - interested WWOOFers might be able to work with our excavator etc. to build the foundations for expansion!

During winter, there is a lot of snow, and the hills become snow plains. There is a snowmobile park right across the road. We use a fireplace to warm the house in winter.

In winter there is lots to do like shoveling snow, cleaning, preparing the cafe and restaurant area for spring, carrying logs and more!

Sometimes guests will come so we prepare food for them and serve them in the restaurant. At the moment, our friends are preparing to open a little food/snack shop at the cottage so you can come and help out there.

A day of work usually looks like this:
- waking up at 7 or 8 and have breakfast
- go for a walk to get ready for the day (only if WWOOFers are up for it, and only if we have the time -- otherwise, we skip the walk)
- doing the tasks at hand (together with other WWOOFers) including breaks with tea, biscuits
- work usually ends around sunset, although that can vary depending on how much work there is for the day, and whether there are customers in the restaurant
- after dinner, it's usually free time for everyone in the house

In summer (May-August), it is very busy. We have lots of guests, because Biei is a world-famous tourist destination. WWOOFers will mostly be helping out with the restaurant, serving customers, cleaning the rooms, making beds, and helping guests with whatever they need. WWOOFers will also be tending the flower farm (we have beautiful flowers, please take a look at our photos!)

We have barbecue pits, a pavilion in the garden, a huge swing held by two strong trees right in front of our kitchen window and a tent to sleep outside in when it is warm.

WWOOFers will have one day off every week. You can borrow our electric bikes and ride around the fields, go to the nearby hot springs, go hiking or visit the nearby towns (Furano, Biei).

I will also try my best to show you the beautiful scenery of Biei by car!

Shizuoka
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(age3) 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.

Oita
WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
【Yufuin, Oita】We are looking for an urgent wwoofer to help us in our cafe for around a week from Feb 21 to Feb 28!

Our place is a cafe restaurant, not farm.
90% of WWOOFers activities are cooking,and the other 10% is to help our friend farmers or residents
. So those who are interested in cooking are most welcome here
!(You don't have to be good at cooking. But we need WWOOFers who love cooking or interested in it.)

In our kitchen, each of the woofers is not merely a cooking assistant, but a "chef" who can make any dish he or she wants to make every day (usually, by lunchtime each day, the wwoofers will make at least two or three dishes of their own choice). The dishes are then checked by our manager and placed on the buffet.

This is a bit of a long explanation, but what I want to say is that here, all the WWOOFer will be cooking for almost 3 hours every day, thinking up his own dishes, so if you like or are interested in cooking, this place will be a fun place, but if you are not, it's not a fun for you.
That is why I am explaining this at the beginning, just to be sure.

------------------------------------------------------------

We run a community restaurant called "Harappa Cafe" in a place called Yufuin in Oita Prefecture. Through food, people from all over the world and local residents, young and old, with and without disabilities, enjoy interacting with each other, and through this interaction, we are conducting various experimental efforts to create a relationship of mutual support in daily life.


<What you can get out of this place and what you may experience

You will have the opportunity to interact with local people of various generations from Yufuin, as they will participate in the event together or come to the café as customers.

You will be able to learn not only Japanese cuisine, but also various cuisines of different countries from other woofers and local people. I think it is also a great opportunity for those who are not so interested in cooking to learn how interesting it can be.

The program includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as leftovers from the dishes prepared for lunch, or if that is not available, we can prepare and eat our own favorite dishes. Vegetarian and vegan woofers are welcome.

We usually work mainly in the café, but if the farmers who share their vegetables with us in the café ask us to help, we sometimes take a break from the store or go to help the farmers after the café is closed.

The café space is usually open for woofers until about 10 pm. You can talk, drink, play games, and listen to music with people from different countries and locals.

Wifi is available in all cafes and shared houses for woofers, so you will never have a problem with internet access.

It is a place that aims to be the opposite of a place of economic efficiency, pursuit of profit, and competition, so if you are tired of such a lifestyle, this may be an opportunity to take a break and reevaluate your way of living.

-----------------------------------------------------

 In our café, there is no price label on the dishes; customers decide what they want to pay and put it in the box after they eat. Also, there is no professional chef employed by the restaurant, and all staff members, including Woofer and others, volunteer to prepare the food. Each person is free to prepare and serve whatever dish he or she wishes to make that day.
 This attempt to guarantee a basic meal for a healthy life in the community, regardless of the economic situation at the time, has been in place since January 2016 and is gradually taking root.

WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
★We primarily welcome long-term stays of 3 weeks or more, but depending on our busy seasons (April, May, and August) and availability, we also accept short-term stays.★

Stays of less than 3 weeks outside the busy seasons are considered regular (fee-based) accommodations, not through WWOOF. For more details, please refer to the Dana Village website.

In addition to farm work, we are also looking for individuals who can assist flexibly in various tasks around the house, such as cleaning, tidying up, and taking care of children!

We need WWOOFers mostly from the end of March to December. We welcome people who are sincerely looking for experiences with a sustainable, authentic lifestyle with a vegan diet. (You don't have to be vegan, but what we provide is ONLY plant base, except we got something from the neighbor. So we would request you to avoid bringing any non-vegan products to Dana Village: You can eat outside if you want )
PLEASE avoid the last minutes cancellation/ sending COPY&PASTE message as we are accepting limited numbers while we have a lot of requests.
Thank you and look forward to working together!


***I apologize, but we kindly request heavy smokers and individuals who use strong artificial fragrances, such as fabric softeners, to refrain from using them before coming here. Thank you.

WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
Acceptance will begin in March.
Me and my wife started our new life as a farmer by reclaiming waste land near Mt. Iwaki 19years 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 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!
The atmosphere is heart-warming and homely, and we are sincerely grateful to the many woofers who have joined us since 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 and chopping wood. In addition, excellent food is waiting for you, such as handmade o-hagi (rice cakes), chestnut bean paste, sweet potatoes and bread!

We can confidently recommend this as a great way to explore the region. Nara Prefecture is the region with the most World Heritage Sites! Todaiji Temple, Nara Park, Kasuga Taisha Shrine, Horyuji Temple, Yoshinoyama and Yakushiji Temple are all within an hour's train ride. Furthermore, access to Osaka and Kyoto is also convenient, taking only about an hour by car or train. Enjoy enjoyable sightseeing during your holidays!

Our families, both adults and children, are talkative and look forward to many talks with different woofers.

And our non-profit organisation supports the independence of young people who are not attending school (children with developmental disabilities) or are withdrawn. If you are interested in supporting the independence of children, young people and people with disabilities, we can give you a lot of information.

Notice. Our organisation operates as a non-profit organisation and we provide support taking into account the overall schedule. Once we have agreed to accept a woofer, we will make sure that the schedule is well organised. 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.

For foreign nationals, we require that you have at least a beginner level of Japanese.

Furthermore, if you have any anxiety, mental or physical problems or disabilities regarding the activities, which may limit some of the activities, we would appreciate it if you could inform 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 organisations for more than 30 years. We have had the pleasure of many contacts and enjoyable exchanges. We hope to continue 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!

Okinawa
WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
Welcome to Igei Farm! We are an organic vegetable farm located in Oogimi. Oogimi is a village in northern Okinawa known locally as the “village of longevity.” It is considered as one of the five “blue zones” in the world, where people are thought to live the longest, happiest lives. In fact, our farm was recently featured in a documentary about longevity by Yes Theory, titled “Why Locals Live +100 Years on this Japanese Island” (SEE VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mm-ZhXVGnPg).

Igei-san worked in the cities of Okinawa until about 30 years ago, when he purchased an empty lot in the mountains of Ogimi to realize his dreams of starting an organic farm. It’s his life passion to grow vegetables without pesticides using the traditional techniques he learned from his father. Organic farming requires lots of hands, and this is where we need your help! We have been hosting WWOOFers for over 10 years. While we do not speak any English, we do our best to communicate using translation apps. We do ask that you have an interest in learning Japanese and are respectful of our culture. Please message us in Japanese, and note that as we are older, we may be slow with responding to messages.

Our daily work varies depending on the season but may involve harvesting, weeding, planting, and DIY projects. We work about six hours a day with generous breaks. We provide delicious, traditional Okinawan meals using vegetables and meat from our farm. It’s important to note that our accommodation is a rustic farmhouse, so please be aware of this before applying. We seek people who value connection and understand that you don’t need much to live a healthy and fulfilling life. We have wifi and air conditioning in the summer. You will be living alongside all kinds of insects, so we highly recommend you are comfortable with bugs and bring bug spray. Additionally, you will need work clothes (long sleeves and long pants), a hat, and rain jacket. We have some work boots, but sizes are limited, so please bring your own if you can.

Ideally, we would like WWOOFers to stay for at least two weeks. We look forward to hearing from you!

Nagano
WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
We will begin accepting woofers for the new season starting in spring 2024.

We are accepting applications for periods ranging from one week to one month, but those who wish to fully experience and learn about Azumino, Nagano Prefecture, agricultural life, guesthouses, town development, etc., or those who wish to stay for a longer period, are welcome. Please contact us.

My family runs a farm and a guesthouse built by renovating a 100-year-old private house with my friends. This is an inn where guests from outside Azumino and local Azumino friends come and go, where you can meet and experience new things.

If you are interested in the half-farming, half-X lifestyle, if you want to live a farming life or run a guest house, if you are interested in building a community, please come to Woof.

I also work as a member of the Azumino City Council. It's an interesting place where various factors such as the region, agricultural life, guest houses, and politics are multiplied.

If there is space, we accept anyone who wants to come to our house, but we would appreciate it if you like to cook. I'd like you to make simple home-cooked vegetable dishes to serve at the inn. (*Not required)

There are six people in my family, but they live in separate houses. Usually, it's me (male) and the hotel staff (male in my 30s) who interact with Mr. Woofer. Woofer will prepare a room at a share house near the guest house.

●This year's acceptance list is as follows.

① From April. Spring & Golden Week (GW) etc.
Planting and management of blueberries, planting potatoes, etc.
During Golden Week, my main job will be managing the guest house.
Beautification, room preparation, cooking assistance, etc.
I'm busy, but I look forward to interacting with the various guests who come every day.
In the meantime, I will sow perilla seeds.
At this time of year, the apple trees are in full bloom and the area is very beautiful.

②Late May to mid-July
We are finally entering the busy summer farming season.
Rice cultivation (rice planting at the end of May, duck release in early June, weeding in June, etc.)
Planting summer vegetables, perilla, soybeans, etc.
Harvesting a golden wheat field reminiscent of Nausicaa
From July, we will also be accepting blueberry harvest and picking experiences.

③Late July to late August
Summer is the busy season for guesthouses. Your main job will be managing the inn.
My job is to take guest families and children to play in the river (please bring your swimwear) and dig potatoes.
- Assisting with room preparation and cooking.

④Late September to early November
Autumn is the busy farming season.
Harvesting and sorting rice, perilla, soba, soybeans, etc.

●Points to note
・This is a half-farming, half-community inn that operates a guest house while living an agricultural life. If you are considering a half-farming, half-half lifestyle, an agricultural lifestyle, or a guest house management in the future, if you want to move to a rural area, if you want to live a healthy diet that includes fresh vegetables, please come and join us.
・There is a family home 5 minutes walk from the inn, where Grandpa Baba, his wife, two children, a dog, and a guinea pig live. I look forward to seeing the energetic daughter, cute son, old-fashioned father, and mother who can do anything. My wife has many same-sex fans.
・Woofer's accommodation room will be a guest house. Since it is a loft on the second floor, there is no partition and it is separated by curtains.
・If you like cooking, please help us prepare the meals at the inn. A simple home-cooked meal made with home-grown, pesticide-free fresh vegetables.
*Cooking is not required for Woof's job.
・It's fun to meet and interact with inn guests and local friends who come and go. Another feature is that we hold various events such as live performances and cafes. Let's create an event together and have fun.
・There are many Woofhost farms in Azumino. Why not try the ladder? (lol)
