[Natural Farming Experience] Self-sufficiency lifestyle in Convenient&Agriculture city.

Tokushima
Japanese style house

Sea

Ishii Town, located in the eastern part of Tokushima Prefecture, is blessed with nature, open between the Shikoku Mountains and the Yoshino River. It has long been a land of rich agriculture and a supply base for fresh vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, leeks, and sweet corn. Offering a good balance of urban functions and nature, and is compact and easy to live in, with everything you need in one place. A short distance away, there is a Shikoku pilgrimage site, an indigo-dyeing facility, and the Awa Odori Museum, where visitors can easily become familiar with the traditional culture of the region.

I’m renting the house to people who are exhausted with their jobs and hoping that take time to face themselves separated from daily lives. In the field in front of the house, vegetables are grown using natural farming methods with no fertilizers or pesticides, and we strive to live in a way that respects nature.

Nice to meet you. I run a guesthouse while farming based on self-sufficiency. My hobby is traveling around in and outside of Japan, I’m aiming to make space travelers can sit back and relax easily. Please contact me if you wish for trial cooking using our pesticide-free vegetables.

You can interact in English with travelers from around the world by making meals together etc. Also, we are putting effort into agriculture experience, so you can learn about small to large-scale farming.

We grow seasonal vegetables and fruit trees in our garden at home, and you can experience planting, caring for, and harvesting them.
