    Description

    My name is Marcelo and I am a Japanese Brazilian living a life experience in Japan.

    Hello guys and girls.

    We would like to meet people who can create stuff, maybe construction, maybe art or music, but please use your creativity.

    Carpenters and people in to construction please give us a beautiful hand, I need to finish the office wood deck

    I need to somebody with experience in help me out in a guest house, check in, setting up rooms and cleaning.

    Summer time is knocking at the door so we will be focusing on our guests a bit more, cleaning and setting up the cottages will be the main priority and when we have time during the week other projects will be put up for you guys art, cooking building, etc, etc.


    Our Art Village is an especial place where you can meet people in a middle of the forest where is situated in Chiba prefecture only 2 hours from Tokyo, the closest station will be Choujamachi, 5 min by car or maybe 30min walking.

    PLEASE CHECK hypermedia.com for train schedule.

    We have about 10 cottages, a Curry restaurant called Chana Leaf, lots of space for camping and BBQ.

    The Art Village is a nice place to relax and chill out, very quiet but could be a bit busy on the weekends (that is when I need you guys most).

    Shopping area is about a 35 min walk to the closest shop.

    I need people with international drivers license, cause you could move more independently.

    The tree house is completed, so the next step will be constructing a wood deck under the tree house to put up a tent.



    I need volunteers for this summer, please feel free to send a request.


    THE TASKS:

    It starts at 9:00 am every morning, if you would like to have breakfast please wake up earlier, clean the roads, tennis court and the cottages for about 45 min and from there you will be given a project, building tree house, wood decks for the tent site, marking the trail in the forest, art, web designs, etc etc etc. until 12:00h, them a person will be in charge to cook lunch to the rest of the volunteers, ingredients provided but nothing fancy, veggies, rice, meat, if you would like to have anything else you will pay from your own pocket, usually we shop every 4 days
    We will have a rotation on the cook and he/she will leave 30min prior to luck time, it means 11:30h to start to cook.
    At 01:30h we will start again the afternoon shift and we will finish at 16:00h.

    I need people that can move independently, not saying all the time what to do, if you would prefer that I write a list please tell me and I will provide tasks of the day and/or for the week.

    This will be in normal days but when we have check ins it will be a bit different, it will depend of the guests needs.

    You will have 2 days off a week but the time that you arrive it will count 5 days and day off, but this will VARY FOR THE NEEDS OF THE GUESTS, I will try to be as fare as possible, please communicate.

    We might have some lack of organisation, so we expect from volunteers to take initiative at any time.

    We look forward to meeting MOTIVATED, RESPECTFUL, CREATIVE & HELPFUL work-away travellers !

    IF YOU COME WITH A VACATION MODE, NO PROBLEM BUT I NEED THIS 5H AS A VOLUNTEER, PLEASE !!

    Respectfully,

    Marcelo
