Volunteer stay

We also accept volunteers who live like family members and help with various daily activities in the community, such as farming and cooking. If you would like to stay as a volunteer, please indicate this on your visitor application form.

  • Volunteers live as part of a family, just like members.
  • The Konohana Family lives a life modeled after nature. Just as all living things in nature continue their life activities without taking vacations, we basically enjoy working seven days a week and contributing to the lives of all.
  • Working hours are generally around eight and a half hours a day (including breaks), and will vary depending on the season and crop conditions.
  • Volunteers are required to stay for at least 3 days.
  • Accommodation and meals are free.
  • Volunteers cannot choose the work content. They will be asked to help in accordance with the needs of the community.
  • Please bring your own work clothes.
  • If we determine that you are not suitable for volunteering, we may ask you to switch to a regular guest stay.


Meals are vegetarian, made from home-grown vegetables and grains. The accommodation fee includes 3 meals, with lunch and dinner served as a buffet. For an additional fee of 500 yen, you can change your meal to OZEN, a special menu set.
