  • Description


    We live in a town called Toyoura in Hokkaido located 40minutes from Niseko area. In my family I have my wife and 3 kids.
    In Toyoura, there is a big Onsen(hot spring) spot.

    We are now renovating our log cabin in a farm which is 10 minutes away from my house.
    At the same time, we are making our berry farm.

    We will ask you to help us house keeping, cooking, taking care of animals(goats and ducks) and farming. We might ask you to child care sometimes.
