WWOOF (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) provides information on various host establishments across Japan - not just farms - willing to employ people for 4-6 hours a day in return for room and board and the experience of mingling with the local community. Note that there is an annual fee to join WWOOF Japan and make use of most of the information they provide.
