WWOOF is an exchange between friends:
Hosts and WWOOFers
Hosts give WWOOFers meals and accommodation, in return for WWOOFers participating in the activities hosts do at their place.
There is no money paid between hosts and WWOOFers. WWOOFers need pay only the yearly WWOOF Japan membership fee of 5,500 yen. WWOOFing starts from sending an online Registration Form.

WWOOF Japan members can get below the veneer of tourism and away from their daily grind, have genuine and meaningful experiences with people, society and culture, in all kinds of walks of life, in hundreds of locations all over Japan. Eat and think organically!
Hundreds of hosts, adding new hosts monthly, representing a rich diversity of adventure, for example: organic farming, organic restaurants, farm inns, pottery and arts, building and restoring traditional homesteads, dealing with animals, eco village, brewing and production of foods, fishing, bee keeping, nature guide center, centers for the environment, and more.
What WWOOFers do at hosts' places, depends on each host. For example, weeding, seeding, harvesting, watering, chopping wood, feeding animals, shipping vegetables, processing food, cleaning, washing dishes, helping children's study, building houses, painting, computer support, taking dogs for a walk, shoveling snow, helping at event, making handicrafts, etc. Hosts reciprocate, giving WWOOFers various knowledge and experience relating to these and other activities while living with the host. Also, hosts will introduce WWOOFers to the beauty of their local area. This and more is outlined in the Host Preview.
Re COVID-19, some hosts are accepting WWOOFers as usual after checking how the WWOOFers have spent their days recently. Some hosts may take measures of physical distancing with WWOOFers for a period. There are some hosts who are not hosting WWOOFers for a while. After becoming a WWOOFer, please ask hosts directly, explaining your situation. If you are not in Japan, please check the Japanese embassy/consulate website page relative to your country, because there are entry criteria which are being regularly updated as circumstances change.
