    Dear Workawayers,

    Thanks for finding my profile :)

    I'm Yuko, doing natural farming in
    the small town in Nagasaki Pref, basically by myself with warm supports by local people & you Workawayers.

    I've lived in Tokyo for long, worked for some worldwide trading companies, being on charge of foreign shipment & producton management.

    Moved to Nagasaki, started farming & my yoga class in 2015.

    I've already accepted over 50 volunteers from all over the world, had so much fulfilling time together.

    The goal of this project is to make an eco-village based on natural farming.
    We'd like to provide people with the place to stay surrounded by beautiful nature to be relaxed,
    and opportunities to spend time in nature, touch soils, feel the wind & listen to birds singing.

    We hope this will be the interactive place where many people gather to share the time & ideas looking for the better way to coexist with all creatures by as natural way as possible.

    Private room of Japanese style (tatami)

    It's an old farmhouse (but well renovated & clean), we may have bugs, insects & wild animals in/out the house

    My diet is vegan style (not because of ethical policy, just because I love veggies)

    Usually provide rice or noodle, egg, tofu, dumpling, and fresh seasonable veggies with simple seasonings

    Please bring extra food in case it'll be not enough

    Meals are for working days only

    I'm trying to live simply & eco-friendly.
    Please cooperate to try to save water, gas & electricity during your stay
