Live self-sustained with animals! 5 minute walk from the ocean and the mountains in Hokkaido!

Hokkaido

Farm stay

Toyoura Town faces the sea called Eruption Bay, and there is not much flat land in the town due to the mountains rising up from the sea. The sea is only 5 minutes away from the farm, so you can enjoy swimming in summer and fishing in autumn. In the mountains behind the farm, we hunt deer, pick up chestnuts, and water wells up … we can enjoy fulfill with abundance bounty of the nature.

We moved here for our children’s education. We are loosely naturalists. We hunt and gather, but also usually shop at convenience stores and supermarkets.

3 Key Points

1Host’s introduction 
The manager, goats, cole ducks, and chickens living together in the farm's dormitories. We have had about 20 volunteers stay with us over the past two years, about 80% of whom are foreigners. Our family does not live in the farm, we are commuters: a couple in their 40s, a 10-year-old daughter, a 7-year-old son, and a 4-year-old daughter. Basically, I work on the farm, so the community only interacts with you when they visit the farm.
2You can interact with people like this! 
The farm's dormitory functions as a community space, so families from the neighborhood often gather there. When I realized it, I found about 10 children playing in the parking lot. Once a month we hold a marché, which is small but brings a lot of people together.
3You can experience like this!
We are doing includes a wide variety of things, growing berries, DIY, renovations, firewood production, the first step of forestry, poultry farming, hunting, and more. If I can't handle it, my neighbors can, so I think there is a lot to learn. I would be happy to help with the berry garden, cafe, animal care, DIY assistance, cleaning, kitchen master, and occasionally babysitting the kids!
