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 (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 also had a lot of woofers come last year, and thanks.
A farming trade and wood chopping are jam-packed for a cafe, vegetables making (ecofarming and, organic, organic) and transplantation.
Good food depends on homemade ball-shaped steamed sweet rice wrapped in sweet red bean paste, chestnuts bean jam, sweet potato and bread.

★ Sightseeing introduction★ in an area Nara-ken is the matter with the most world's cultural and natural heritages!
▪ Todai-ji ▪ Nara Park ▪ Kasuga-taisha ▪ Horyu-ji ▪ Yoshinoyama ▪ Yakushiji.
By all trains, within 1 hour range
Even Osaka and Kyoto can access a car and trains and others in about 1 hour.
By all means, please enjoy fun sightseeing in a holiday.

My home is cozy and an adult and children are talkative.
I'd like to talk about much with Mr. various woofers.

We're school phobic (developmental child with disabilities) and the NPO corporation supporting social withdrawal and young people independently.
When I'm interested in independent support of a child, young people and a person with disabilities, I think I can tell you various things.

※ Careful point※
Our group is being active as NPO corporation, considers the whole schedule and is supporting it. After accepting Mr. woofer and consenting, a schedule also meets and puts together. Therefore, please, so that there is no sudden cancellation when an upcoming thing decided, (When being inevitable of course, it'll correspond, so, please make a contact.)

※ In case of the foreign one, Japanese will be restrictive than the beginner's course.

※ When coming into action, there are worrying points, problems of a mind and body and troubles, etc., and the one with a possibility that part restriction begins to come into action is trouble, but please tell the current state beforehand. After seasoning this situation, it'll correspond as much as possible.

I think when you can be able to scratch a search with NPO corporation broom, you can refer to more detailed information. Host is the 12th year, and a group active period is more than 30 years. The relationship of much could even just be here and be exchanged happily. I'd like also to make the various experiences the person who has a relation now happily!
Message for the person who takes an interest any time, please!

WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
We are accepting from March 2023.
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.
