Many farmlands were destroyed by big flood disaster in 2012 that was occurred in Yame and Ukiha city, Fukuoka prefecture at northern Kyushu, Japan. In this paper, I described the case study that has been deployed the volunteer activities for farmland restoration after the flood disaster in the hilly and mountainous areas. The purpose of this study is to clarify the outline of the activities in three regions and to show the types of the volunteer groups of farmland restoration. Interview survey was conducted with each volunteer group's manager and collecting that materials. Field survey was also carried out along with the manager through June to September 2014. It was found that the volunteer group's activity types were characterized into three types. First, "Satochi-Satoyama conservation volunteer group type" that has been works from before and just after the disaster; second, "Residents-administration group type" and third, "Administration group type" who started their works few months after the disaster. Lastly, the distribution of activity areas, the first group was unevenly distributed due to their activity experiences on disasters in former years, the other groups were widely covered the area because of the needs by the local demand.
