Me and my wife started our new life as a farmer by reclaiming waste land near Mt. Iwaki 15 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.

Winter is cold, but inside the greenhouse is hot if it is warm and sunny.

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.

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.

In order to respond to the voice "What kind of place is this host?", I will introduce our farm for a long time. I hope you'll read it and get a connection ~ Thank you very much. (Updated March 8, 2020)

①Self introduction
② The current work of Woofer's day and the rest
③ The concept of our farm “Perch Farm”
④ You can do this if you come home
⑤ In the past year, such a woofer has come


** ①Self introduction **

I wanted to live a simple, grounded life with the bounty of nature, and in 2007 I started a new farm in Minami Aso. This is the 14th year. It is a small full-time farmer in Aso, Kumamoto, which is rich in nature. A couple of 43 and 39 years old + 3 children (7 years old, 4 years old and 1 year old).

We grow rice and various vegetables without pesticides, raise chickens, and deliver them to 70-80 homes (for convenient delivery). Rice is also grown and grown without pesticides.

It is a very “normal” organic farmer with a small amount and many items of recycling type, organic farming, home delivery center.

A simple and comfortable life on the ground! I started thinking that when I was raising children, I had to face seriously that I had to be firm and earn.

In the past few years, we have shifted in the direction of "Growing delicious and nutritious food and supplying it stably. Become a professional farmer. Improve skills. Do good work and contribute to the world." You.

However… It is a time when child care is still a long time, and it is really full every day. I know that if I can improve the environment of the farm during the winter, my daily work will be easier, but the work in front of me and child care are so busy that I can not turn around and it is not easy (> . But I feel a little cold. " Please tell me.

8: 00-12: 00 work
13:00-15:00 work

The start of work is delayed, the break time entered during work time, or the end time of work is shifted.

The rest is free time. Bicycles are also available. There is a hot spring nearby. The bath is finished by about 6:00 pm, and rice is about 6:00 pm. Have them put together the dishes and then relax in the guest house room.

As for the rest, we have 1.5 days a week for woofers who stay for more than one week.

Specifically, the work time per week is 33 hours. In addition to farming, if you want to go around and have various experiences while staying in Minami Aso, for example, you can work 33 hours from Monday to Thursday and move freely from Friday to Sunday.

See what you can do if you come home below to see what you can do in Minami Aso during your break time.

Here's what I'm asking Woofer to do.

Weeding rice fields and fields, crushing grass to make fertilizer (use a simple machine), planting vegetables, harvesting, clearing, having children play, cooking (for those who are good at cooking), carpentry , Greenhouse stand, etc.

From March to April,

Preparing for summer vegetable planting, carpentry, greenhouse standing, clearing autumn and winter vegetable fields, mixing chicken feed (rainy days), having children play, harvesting spring vegetables, (good at cooking A) cooking,

From May to June,

Planting summer vegetables, planting potatoes, harvesting spring vegetables, harvesting onions and garlic, harvesting potatoes, planting rice, other weeding, mixing chicken feed (rainy days), having children play, If you like cooking) cooking,

I hope I can ask you something like that.

This also depends on the season, but half of the time working with the farmer, the farmer is doing other work, thank you after explaining to Woofer and thank you. I feel like half.

Even if you leave it, we will come back to see the situation. I'm trying to prevent as much as possible from saying, "I've been asked but what do I do? I don't know.

** ③The concept of our farm "Perch Farm" **

Our farm has the concept of "perch farm". It's a little place for a lot of people to stop by and get some hints and inspirations to go back and flutter again.

Since we are organic farmers, we can't do much other than show them how they live.

However, I can do a little if I introduce various people in Minami Aso, Kumamoto, Kyushu or the connection with friends and acquaintances nationwide. I would be glad if you found something that I wanted to deepen my interest while staying at home. I'd be glad if you could make a connection to deepen your learning. (For details on who you can introduce, please see the column "If you come here, you can do this.")

I also want to find a place like a perch where migratory birds can rest their wings on long journeys.

There is absolutely nothing special that can say "Please come to heal", there is no fashionable and calm space or calm atmosphere, but the hustle and bustle of children, the cluttered space, There is a smell of soil with Tosan (laughs).

I'm glad if there is something that makes me think, "Oh, life is like this."

** ④You can do this if you come here **

Dear WWOOFers,

For the last 5 years, we have been working to fulfill our dream of creating a beautiful pocket in the world, filled with art, music, nature, delicious food, and laughter holding it all together.

We have built Yusu no Ki all from scratch, and everyday it is getting closer to our dream. Artists and musicians regularly pass through and stay with us, our retaurant is steadily gaining in popularity and it is all thanks to the help of WWOOF.

We want to share the music and culture of Japan with people from all over the world, and love to learn. The work we have been doing has ranged from wooden decks to exposed wood ceilings to cutting tiles and shaping glass, building furniture and shaping our home and our space to fit into the nature around us.

Our restaurant hangs over a small lazy river and we are surrounded by forest and hills on all sides.

At the moment, we are involved in trying to meld the classical Japanese style of architecture with the Grecian style, focusing on using shape and color and contrast to live in visual and physical harmony with the beauty around us.

Work here is challenging, but we are all trying to learn! Come learn and build and laugh and make mistakes with us! We are waiting to hear from you. \(^o^)/
ps;Dear wwoofer,
I had an abstract and malicious comment on a woman of an American couple before and I want new women to understand this wonderful thing of Tokonomi. While ladies stay, we guarantee to live meaningfully. A woman who transmits goodness of shinobi is necessary now. To take a misunderstanding. !!

“I can speak only a little English. I didn’t write this text but my ex-WWOOFers helped it for me.”If you like Japanese culture or Japanese cuisine, please come. Kousei&rieko

Hello! It’s Yoshitomo Co., Ltd., a farming company of Natural Cultivation in Aoki, Eastern Nagano. Aoki is a small village in surrounded by beautiful mountains. We mainly grow kale and yacon while rice, blueberries, tomatoes, garlic, soy beans and wheat are cultivated. You can join us between the middle of March and the middle of December. The duration of your stay is from 8 days up to 4 weeks. We start seeding in the middle of March. June to September is the busiest due to weeding, so you’re always welcome! There’re some other works, for example, washing vegetables, making our healthy food products, holding organic farming events.

We live in an area of holiday houses, called Forest of Aoki, that is 800 high and surrounded by great nature in the mountains. Foods are vegan basically. You can go trekking, visit old shrines and temples, enjoy onsen on your days off. We’re looking forward to seeing you!

To give a little description of where we are, we are in a village in a valley (some people think it is like Totoro's place), with two very nice restaurants within walking distance (really nice!). I like to hike up to an old castle site in my free time (just takes about 35 minutes round trip) and hang out at the top and explore the mountain. There is also an Akido class that you can join (first two classes are free and one month is only 1,000 yen). If you like hot springs, there is a really cute and quiet one within walking distance as well.

As for missions, we will be harvesting and packaging and sending the vegetables to the customers in the summer. WE will also be doing other maintenance and such.

There is also a cat and a dog who love to be pet.

Due to the work involved, we can't accept single female volunteers - only male or couples. Also we accept wwoofers who can stay with us for more than 2 weeks.
