    THE PROJECT - SEASON 2 (by the beach side!)

    I'm in midst of arranging the project so details are subject to change..

    Hi, my name is Rob. After a 10 year corporate experience in Tokyo, I decided to make a change and immerse myself in rural Japan. I currently live in the beautiful peninsula know as Izu Peninsula, surrounded by mountains and beaches.

    This year, we'll be doing a 2 month setup at a guesthouse just 2-3min walk from the beach. It's a 3-4 hour train ride from Tokyo, but the beaches are as beautiful as the southern island resorts like Hawaii or the Caribbeans. This is a jump from Izu-Okawa, a more mountainous region to Izu-Shimoda surrounded one of the most beatiful beaches in the country.

    Usual WORKAWAY activities may include the following.

    a) Daily choirs around the guesthouse (setting up sheets) , and possible gardening. This part should be paid.

    b) English Conversation practice activities (elders, kids, adults. audiences of all ages)
    c) Possibly Joining activities like farming, festivals, and sharing the experience through social media.

    # Daily activities of paid work should last for 3-4 hours (i.e. cleaning)
    # Daily start at 8AM or 10AM, lights out 10PM, curfew 11PM
    # To comply with local administration, must hold valid Visa status in Japan (i.e. Working holiday visa or student visa, etc. )
    # Specific details of the content of the work may change. In case of change participants shall be noticed.

    For PARICIPANTS, please contact me with the following. (This is extra information to get to know each other better.)
    1) Your interest and motivation to coming to Japan (you don't need be afraid to say ANIME, as one of your likings)
    2) Teaching or social work experience (if any)
    3) If anyone is good with web development please let me know.
    4) Anything else we should know about.

    Hope to hear from you guys soon.

    If you'd like to do things from scratch, be part of the beginning phase of a project, this is your chance!

    - let's do things"undiscovered" "outside of the box" ( so you can brag to your friend : )
    - Enjoy the "old school Japanese rural life"
    - Learn some Japanese mannerism (great to know when if you're traveling across the country)

    Usual WORKAWAY activities may include the following.
    a) Daily choirs around the house, and possible gardening
    b) English teaching activities (elders, kids, adults. audiences of all ages)
    c) Joining activities like farming, festivals, and shari the experience through social to future travelers around the globe.

    We run on the concept of "voluntary work", meaning ideally, NO OBLIGATION as much as possible. If you strongly feel certain activities do not fit your character, values or personal motivation please tell me on the spot. Great work comes from a strong sense of natural voluntary spirit, meaning pure interest.

    Also I'd like to ask you ideas on any kind of additional creative/innovative contributions you can make. Basically we live to together to greet other guests (my friends) who will also work on this project together.
