Hello! Hola! Konnichiwa!
We are family of Masato, Kaori, Sakura (7), Ichiro (4), Ran (3) and golden retriever Seven, living in Makuhari in Chiba ( 1 hour away by train from Narita airport, and about 30 min to Tokyo).
We are super open-minded people and excited to meet people around the world! We love exchanging culture and experiences, learning languages and now looking for help to set up a traditional Japanese noodle project (soba) and to do some house tasks. We are seeking for people that is good in advertising, design, videomaking… to help us in communication tasks :) Our house is 40 year-old traditional Japanese style, very beautiful!
Actually we are not good at speaking English very much, but we would like people who come to Japan to enjoy their stay. I have been helped by so many people when I traveled abroad, so now would like to pay it forward to someone who visit Japan.
So, we need someone who enjoy advertising, communication, photography, helping house work, Japanese culture and food, playing around inside and outside and someone who enjoy body language too. (we will try our best in speaking English though!)
You don't have to have any skills or lisence, but it is very important that you are willing to try something new and enjoy it! Also, if you just need a place to sleep and eat without communicating people, here is not the best choice. We are not only looking for help, but also hoping exchanging culture, language, life experience, hobby and so on. If you think you are ready to join this family, nothing but your curiosity and warm heart is needed!
