  • Description


    Hello Workawayers,

    I am 34 years old and my husband is 47 years old. I have 4 kids aged 8, 7, 5, 3. Two of them go to an elementary school and one goes to kindergarten and the last one is going to kindergarten from this April. I don't work at the moment but going to start working near future.

    We live in Hamamatsu city in Shizuoka prefecture. It is not close to the city though there are some shopping centers 5-10 minutes by bicycle from the house. We don’t often see foreigners here so it must be good opportunity for you if you would like to know the Japanese life.

    To tell you about myself. I have travelled to California, the U.S.A, New Zealand, Guam, Saipan, and Singapore. I have a great experience in Perth, Australia as a study abroad. While the 1 year stay, I studied English for 9 months and studied Teaching English for children for a month and did a volunteer work at a child care center for 2 weeks. Then I moved to countryside of Perth and stayed with a family with 2 kids for 2 months. A couple of years later, I went Pennsylvania, the U.S.A. as an Au pair. I soon went back to Japan much earlier than expected though.

    So, I experienced many homestay. I am really thankful for having me in their house as I could know the different culture and meet wonderful people there. I now think that it is my turn to do something for somebody. Since I have 4 small kids, I am not able to go to overseas easily. I would like them to experience the different cultures. And I would like them to have various thoughts.

    To tell you about more information. We have a sweet little dog.
    Except me, nobody can speak and understand English. My husband and my kids and people almost here don’t understand English.

    We prefer a female.
    And we wish to have a workawayer who love kids. If you dislike kids, the stay here would be really hard for you.

    Thank you for reading. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I can make and teach Japanese food for you. I like to bake bread, scone and so on. So I would like to do that with you, if you like. We often go to the park or somewhere on the weekends. So you can come and join us if you like. Or you can go out by yourself. There are not so many but some sightseeing places here. If you are not sure and would like to go with us, we are willing to come with you.

    I would like you to speak English with kids. My kids don’t speak and understand English now because they don’t have a chance to learn it and we don’t need to use English here in Japan. But I would like them to familiar with English and have motivation to learn English.

    I would like you to do the dishes (but we have dish washers), vacuuming the room, cooking and so on. I am sure that any help would be really thankful for me as I don’t have enough time with taking care of kids.

    I like cooking. I would love you to cook food from your own country.
