    After you contact us, we would like to take pre screening document and video call on zoom,skype or whatsapp to talk detail further.

    Wa aren’t native in English but we try hard to communicate as can as possible.

    Guest do not need to speak Japanese now but we find whom have a will to learn .

    Your stay at our garden & renovate house will be a real homestay, which means that we will be sharing everyday life. Therefore it is important that you are willing to adapt to our daily rhythm.

    VERY IMPORTANT: Please notice that when we host helpers, we count on their contribution to the work in the garden and house renovation , work can be tough and physical, but it is also rewarding, and we will always make sure you are enjoying yourself during your work and free time. This is a true exchange, not a vacation. We are looking forward to hosting serious and motivated helpers! We treat all our Workawayers with respect and as if they were a guest in our home.

    *My volunteer program on help is close to the farming help exchange program so I don't accept the people who are looking for just free accommodation and foods like a homestay. Also make sense that your effort is help me in self sufficiency and prepare food for next guest like food chain system. And the schedules depend on the weather condition , at rainy day may indoor activity (DIY/maintenance )or we ll inform to take holiday.I wish you can understand what I want to request you.

    we are really grateful for you for reading our page.
