    Hi, my name is Naohito Yoshida(42), Please call me nao.I am an organic farmer.My family is 4 people.(My parents and sister.)One cat, two dogs and five chickens are pets.

    In the middle basin of the Yoshino river, we operate organic farm. A small, 8 acre diversified family farm.

    We are located in mima-city, Tokushima-Prefecture, a three hour drive west of osaka and ten hour west of tokyo.

    We primarily grow seasonal vegetables and fruit.

    We use no insecticide/herbicide/fungicide of any kind, including organic sprays.

    Important Notes:

    1,Priority is given to those who stay at least 24 days. A lot of emails come at the same time, but people under 24 days often postpone it.

    2, Please refrain from abrupt visits. If there is no final contact one week before arrival, we will judge it as cancellation.

    3,Sometimes, we can advice on transportation for guests. However, the accuracy of the information and the official support as a company are not provided. The final decision is left to the guests.

    4,Please cook yourself. Please support this if you can't. You can use ingredients that can be purchased at supermarkets in Japan and vegetables, fruit trees, and grains that can be harvested at my home. In Japan, meat is expensive and not very usable.

    5,We do not have whats app. we have facebook message and skype and iphone .

    6,Please enter the length of stay in the reply message.

    Example(I will stay from June 1st to June 30th.)

    We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
