    Hello everyone,

    We need good help with maintaining the area, carpentry (making wood deck, building a tree house etc), gardening, farming(we have a small field but not currently running), cleaning and setting up lodges (especially in a busy season). If you can repair tree house, earth bag house or these kind of house, let’s build with us!

    We are situated at Nakadaki, Isumi City in Chiba prefecture, it is 1hours and half from Tokyo, the closest station will be Chojamachi, 5 min by car. Near by here there are good location for surfing and in 2020 the Olympics will run. The Supermarkets and Convenience stores are about a 10 min by car. If you have an International Drivers License (IDP) valid in Japan, you could move a bit more independently, using our car when you are free and if the truck is not needed (please ask). Please refuel the car if you are using it privately. Or you can use bicycle.
