    Description

    We are a family with three children ages 3 to 8. I am australian and my wife is Japanese. My wife is running music/English-language lessons. We want an English speaker to help her teach kids and adults in the lessons. Also do some cleaning in the house and help look after the kids. There is some renovation work to do, if that's your thing. Or help with social media etc. Whatever you're
    good at... Accommodation in exchange for these tasks. You will have your own room, or share a room if there are two of you. Meals are your responsibility (there is a kitchen, fridge etc for your use). We need a total of 20 hours a week per person. The house is on the water at Hinase, Okayama. It is a three-storey building, 5 minutes walk from Hinase Station.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can see life in a smallish city in Japan, learn some Japanese from a bilingual family and have fun teaching Japanese to speak English. Hinase is a different side of Japan than the big cities, so the cultural experience is much more authentic. Having English speakers on hand will also help you ease into life in Japan.
