Tokushima
WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
Regenerative agriculture is gradually becoming known through the practices of companies like Patagonia, but there are still very few people practicing it in Japan.
Tsukuyomi Farm had been experimenting with techniques like no-till farming, intercropping, and organic cultivation for 20 years before the term "regenerative agriculture" even existed.
In addition to agricultural techniques, we have also expanded the regenerative mindset and conducted various experiments.
Similar to the WWOOF system, in addition to exchanging accommodation and food for help, we provide dedicated farmland, and buy the agricultural products grown on that land at a fair price as a form of support for starting farming and becoming independent.
Over 20 people have moved to Tokushima or started farming in their hometowns through this.
Like how Tsukuyomi Farm itself is a farm x greengrocer, we pursue the possibilities of agriculture through "half-farming, half-X" initiatives, where people like half-farmer, half-web designer, writer, marketer, traveling chef, YouTuber, etc. gather and engage in various undertakings.
Regenerative agriculture has a truly great potential to solve agricultural challenges.
We encourage you to experience that potential firsthand.
Unfortunately, our local area is aging, and vacant houses are increasing. Though still a small endeavor, our dream is to utilize those increasing vacant houses, not simply reject technology, and create an international free agricultural city - a community like Auroville in India where sustainable agriculture is practiced and diverse people including foreigners interact and support each other.
Please lend us your strength as one small step towards that!
Let's enjoy it together!

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!
Calling WWOOFers who love cooking from all over the world, come together!
You don't have to be a good cook, but if you like cooking, you are welcome!
Why don't you join us and have fun cooking in the kitchen of the Harappa Cafe?
In this restaurant, every WWOOFer is a "chef"!

【Yufuin, Oita】We are looking for wwoofers to help our cafe kitchen between July 5th and July 16th.

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 cultivate 20 kinds of Japanese vegetables per year. Why do not you interact with local people and experience Japanese culture and customs?

Nara
WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
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!

WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
We value communication, so we only accept applicants who can speak Japanese. It doesn't have to be perfect. It doesn't matter if you can only talk a little.
※There are many woofers who are at their own pace, making as much mess as they want, doing whatever they want, throwing away waste in the fields, and it takes a lot of work.
We want to live a life that is sustainable for the earth, and we put this into practice every day.
I would be happy if you could help me with whatever suits me, such as sowing seeds, working in the fields, making vegetable signs, taking care of chickens and sheep, maintaining bamboo forests,Tidying up, cleaning, home repair, playing with children, helping at the guest house, etc.

While self-building buildings that are considerate of the earth, we are creating a place where you can live your life without being tied down by money.
If you have doubts about your current lifestyle or want to refresh yourself, why not spend some time in nature?
The sunset and starry sky are also beautiful.

WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
We are looking for wwoofer to help with summer farm work. Summer is hot, so we may work early in the morning, in which case we will take a break during the day.

There will be a children's camp from July 30 to August 1, so you will have a great time with the kids. We also have a festival on August 15, which is busy but lively and fun. Summer is busy, but I think it is also a lot of fun!

We can accept one wwoofer at the same time.
Help for farming(weeding in rice field and organic garden etc) 、and our cake shop(cleanig rooms, washing dishes, etc).
You can help variable works. We are very busy and so you may
be hard working. But you can enjoy Japanese countryside life, for example foods, nature etc.

Hokkaido
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!

In the process of cultivating rice paddies, the fields that we have been renting since last year are also furrowing and building fences to protect them from animal damage. After the wheat harvesting, there is a soybean seed grater. Bamboo forests are also being converted into fields.
We are also building cafes and share houses, but we are (-_-;) not making much progress
We want people who are interested in pioneering, subsistence farming, and natural farming, people who can converse in Japanese, people who can work carefully, and people who have fun.

★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!
