Workaway works on word of mouth and local publicity.. If you like the idea and want to do your part in helping promote the site then please print out a poster and display it in a noticeable place.
Good ideas of where to hang a poster would be; Backpackers, youth hostels , travellers bars , small hotels, local notice boards...anywhere where you think travellers might benefit from seeing the workaway message.
Thank you so much and have a great time travelling :)

Area: HokkaidoWe are Located in Niseko Hirafu ski resort. The premier Ski resort of Asia. Its very busy in winter but no so much in summer. We take Helpers at any-time of the year but especially in from October to March, ski mountain open till May 5th and still a lot of snow. We are located only 100m to main ski lifts. Depending on ski resort policy not changing, we may have some shared ski passes you can use for free, may not be available every day and we are located only 100m to main ski lifts. If you would like to use lifts first thing in the morning every day of the season then its best you get your own season pass. (2013 SEASON WE HAVE SHARED LIFT PASSES FOR YOUR USE - SO PLEASE ENJOY THE AMAZING POWDER HERE!!) In October we are getting ready for winter season, so we really appreciate people coming from start of October. The work in October is usually cleaning and setting up restaurants, cutting fire wood, paining and some construction work. The work can be strenuous and weather on some days cold. So please bring enough warm clothes and water proof boots is best. The usual family small group sharing will decrease as more members join and the chances to speak Japanese will decrease until about the 10th of December when we most winter seasons have at least 10 Japanese staff arrive for the season. The mix of people here is very diverse from Europe to Asia. In winter Hirafu turns into a unique international village where the most spoken language becomes English. If you want to experience the real Japan Kutchan is only 7km down the road and has many bars and restaurants. We need people all thru the year. (Some years we are away travelling from late April to end of Sept- please check with us a few months before as we usually will know then what our plans are) Free ski pass for 6 hours per day help. Come to Niseko the best place in Japan because of the 4 seasons, nature, sport, onsens and food all best in Niseko!! For winter we are looking for Workawayers for the whole winter season from Dec 1st until mid or late March. We will only accept people who can come for the whole time so they can understand what work needs to be done. Ski passes will be shared among members and preference will be given to hard working responsible people who have an international drivers licence and can drive manual passenger transport vans, people who can speak both Japanese and English will be especially welcome. looking forward to meeting you!!

Area: Central Tokyo (Shinjukuku)We are a Korean family of three living in Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo and are looking for native English speakers to come and live with us in order to help us improve our English and my son speaks English very well as there are native English speaking teachers at his school. My son loves singing, football and listening to stories. My husband and I both speak English but to a lesser extent. We are particularly keen on finding a native speaker that likes children and that can keep our son ,other children engaged and help them to have fun in their learning. You will be expected to work with our son on a one-to-one basis . You will also be expected to help other young Korean learners(elementary school)of English in small groups of up to three children per group for five days a week. We live in an apartment which is about a five minute walk from the nearest metro station and a couple of minutes from 24 hour convenience stores. It is not very big but is big enough for our family and you. We will share two meals a day . As part of your role is to help people to improve their spoken English, so that we can get an idea of how you speak, we always like to have a short Skype session to see how you speak. We prefer our helpers to be clearly spoken and without a strong accent. If you are interested in helping us, feel free to get in touch. .
