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(age1) 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.
We usually ask for work from 9:00 to 11:30 and from 13:00 to 15:30. (plus housework sometimes)
But it's flexible. It's depends on the project/ depends on your situation.
We live a small house now and can offer you private room but shared kitchen/bathroom.
we're planning to finish renovation of a guest house by summer.
If the guest house has done, we'll offer you to stay there.
We normally cook and eat together. (can be separate sometimes)
We prepare ingredients. But it's also flexible if you have special dietary requirements.
