Hello there,

Our resort is located about 1.5 hours west of Kochi City and is the head water area of Shimanto River. Shimanto river is running through Kochi Pref, and famous for being the most beautiful river in Japan. In our property, a small river is flowing through and 11 cottages stand on this river. In our main building, we have restaurant, cafe, onsen and guest rooms upstairs.
Since March 2017, we also welcome volunteers in this resort and over 140 helpers had stayed here and enjoyed working, fishing, cooking and so on.

Of course, this is designed for the accommodation, therefore we have to look after our guests as the first priority. Moreover, the majority of the guest is Japanese. However, we are getting more and more international guests as well now.

Additionally, we are now running 3 resorts in Shikoku Area (the others being in Kumakogen and Niyodo). We would like to welcome guests to Shikoku from all around the world and give them the "Free and easy" travel style. By providing the accommodations in the whole Shikoku Area, we can also provide the comprehensive service to guests who want to travel around the island in a short time.

Also, we want to increase the opportunity for helpers to enjoy this "Meeting place" in this beautiful rural area. Our management team is not perfect and may not always seem as attentive as you wish it would be as the business demands their complete attention.
Usually have about 4 volunteer position at busy times (Golden week, summer holidays, New Year) and 1 position the rest of the year.

Although, we welcome any nationalities and ages, families and small children may not be suitable for this place.
Also, Japanese standard for the hospitality industry is relatively high and require more tensed and focused attitude for the tasks. We don't want you to work too long or to overwork but please focus on your job when you work, and enjoy rural life while you are here.

Free accommodation (gender mixed cottage for 4ppl), food, onsen, bicycles, wifi...
Minimum stay: 1 week.
