    Due to staff sickness we are looking for more!

    Please contact us asap for this winter season.

    Winter positions are almost all filled but we are especially looking for chefs / cooks who can manage a small restaurant when the regular chef has days off. We would very much like to have a couple as this helps us with our staff accommodation limitations.

    Located in the ski resort town of Rusutsu, Hokkaido, our lodge sits amongst stunning mountains, lakes and forests with some of the best powder in the world. We are an 11 room lodge with restaurant. Our team is a small friendly bunch of both Japanese people and foreigners.

    Locally, there are many things to see and do, including, Mount Yotei, Mount Shiberibestu, Rusutsu Ski Resort, Niseko Ski Resort, Lake Shikotsu, Lake Toya, Sapporo city, Otaru, various onsen and water springs, beer and whiskey factories, and much more.

    Our lodge is across the road from a famed Ski Resort - so if you have a passion for skiing and/or snowboarding, this is the place for you! The powder here is exceptional and living here means super easy access. Unfortunately we don't provide lift passes, although we do have some gear that you can borrow.

    Staff cars! Unlike most other work places in the Niseko/Rusutsu area, we provide staff cars so that you have the freedom to explore the beautiful scenery, check out some local towns, or maybe go to an onsen after a day on the mountain. This is a huge bonus for those here.

    We have a relaxed and friendly environment with a mixture of Japanese people and foreign workers. Days and work times are somewhat flexible which means you can spend more time doing what you want to do, depending on the needs of the lodge.

    We also provide a dinner meal on working days during the winter season.

    We're after friendly people who can help out over the peak winter and summer seasons. There's a range of different work and skills for what we do here, but generally we're after people who are keen to help out with;

    - Front desk work - checking in and checking out guests. Sometimes we require people to be on standby during busy periods, and potentially pick ups and drop offs for guests (International license required).

    - Cleaning rooms and common spaces.

    - Helping in the restaurant. We have a simple buffet breakfast in the morning and run a cafe in the afternoon then a restaurant in the evening. Buffet work is just topping up food, clearing/washing dishes. Our restaurant isn't very big, just helping where needed.

    - Snow clearing. It gets pretty hectic in the middle of the winter season so we have a snow blower and tyre shovel to help with this but there is also manual work. We'll provide full training for the machines.

    All of the things we do here don't require previous experience as we'll teach you on the job - just a willingness to take initiative and keenness to get involved!

    Restaurant experience would be great, especially in the kitchen, but not necessary.

    We're a chill bunch of people who have a lot of return guests and work in a friendly and relaxed environment.

    We are looking for people who are available for at least two months but the full season is preferred, as it does take training time with some of the work.

    Working holiday visa or equivalent is absolutely essential.

    Although Rusutsu is a small village, there is heaps of amazing things to do in the area, accessible with the staff car - a quick search will give you a good idea as to what's around.
