  • 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 run a berry farm, a cafe, and B.B.Q. service.

    We have a lot of things to do in each season.

    - April to September.
    This is ON season for us.
    We tidy our berry farm, pick blueberries, and set up cafe and B.B.Q. area on business day.
    Chopping and splitting fire woods for winter is also important.
    I will ask you to help these things.

    - October to March
    This is OFF season for us, but actually not OFF for us.
    We renovate our log cabin for the next season, prepare for winter (big snow) and make new menus for our cafe.

    The beach is 5 minutes from our farm.
    We sometimes go to the beach after we work. Tent sauna is also available on the beach.

    Niseko is 40minutes to 1 hour from the farm.
    On off days, we sometimes go there for skiing.
