I had about two weeks at Yoshinaga-san's place and it was really nice time. I got to do and see a bit of his farming life, the nature around the small city where he lives and just in generel get to live the countryside life. The time spent on Work tasks were fair and the job itself I found interesting. Yoshinaga was funny to hang out with and he has a nice perspective on life and nature. I can only recommend this to other people!

Pauli is a wonderful adult who not only loves traveling, but also respects the culture and history of each place. (I kind of laugh that he can't eat onions... haha)
Although it was only two weeks, we had very meaningful and deep interactions. I wanted to continue contacting him. thank you.またね!!



Staying at Green Home was an unforgettable experience, Yoshinaga-san is an incredible host that cares a lot about me, he is a very kind and interesting person. We had fun exploring all the rivers sides, swimming and chatting! I had the chance to go to Yasakoi and Motoyama festivals! It's hard to say everything that we did, we shared so many special experiences. Motoyama is full of nature, it's more beautiful than I expected. I also had dinner with a local family and made some friends! The work was easy and stress free. It was very sad to say goodbye, Yoshinaga-san became really special to me

Joana and our summer memories are indescribable. We respected each other and enjoyed every day like children of nature, chatting, cooperating, and sometimes discussing and resolving disagreements. It's a wonderful relationship. I think this is true cultural exchange. Of course she has common sense and is a wonderful adult. It's sad to part, but I hope we can ride the wind like dandelions and meet again someday. Overall a perfect guest.ありがとう!!



My stay was amazing. Masato is a kind and thoughtful person. I was havesting tomato's the time I was there 3-4 hours a day, 5 days a week. I can get really hot In summer. But we had air condition and made enought breaks where we could chat. The work is easy explained I think everybody can do this. It's a small city surrounded by natur. There are mountains and rivers it's so beautiful. If you are a nature person you will love this place. I could also meet some locals, we did some activities together and I am thankfull that they invited me to be with them. I felt at home so far away.

Svenja came during the high season on our farm. It was a busy day. She was never late and is a reliable guest. Outside of work, we enjoyed playing and chatting.

She has a quiet nature, but never forgets to smile brightly. In the end, our relationship became like a family. Saying goodbye made me very sad for me. If we meet again one day,...
A big recommendation to all our hosts around the world.



I spent two weeks at Yoshinaga-san's farm, during the tomato picking season. I had never done any kind of farmstay before — and I honestly couldn't have picked a better place. Most of my work was picking tomatoes and tending to the plants, but I also had the opportunity to participate to other steps of the selling process. Yoshinaga-san was precise in his instructions, and always ready to answer my questions or tell a story. It was a short stay, but Yoshinaga-san and Yo-san made me feel incredibly welcome. I got to meet Motoyama residents, go to Kochi, and even attend a school festival!

Two weeks with Emma. They were very happy and helpful.
Her international knowledge from her background and her study of the Japanese language were wonderful and a great inspiration to all of us at the farm.
She says she is shy, but she is very friendly and a challenger. She is also a wonderful guest she cares about others and never forgets to smile.
We highly recommend Emma.
Thank you Emma. Your friends and family are always welcome to our farm.



The working place is located in the middle of the farm, surrounded by an amazing nature with mountains and rivers. After spending the most days of my journey in big cities, such as Osaka or Tokyo, this place was perfect to slow down. I really enjoyed my work. It was quite easy and I still had a lot of free time. Yoshinaga-san was so caring and kind! Whenever I needed help, he was there. He made this a very special experience, that I can recommend from all my heart to other travellers!

I was amazed at her physical strength. Darleen is someone you can entrust any task to. And she is a smart person with a high level of thinking about the environment.
On the other hand, Darleen also has a bit weak spot. So host, please stay close to her. Listen to her. And please share.
She highly recommends Darleen for hosts interested.
She is a trusted guest. I guarantee!
