  • Description


    Hello! My name is Kanako and I live together with my 3 year old son Leo and exhusband. I am currently looking for a friendly helper who could help me a little bit. Please note that I prefer female workawayers

    We live in the center of Tokyo in Chiyoda. The area is very convient and you have an easy access to the Yamanote Line and subway lines. You can walk to Akihabara. Nihonbashi or even Tokyo Station. You can also use my bicycle. You have your own private room, internet and I will provide food for you.

    However, it is really important that you speak intermediate Japanese, because I barely speak any English.

    It would be great if you could bring my baby boy a few times a week to the nursery in the morning around 8 am. The nursery is just 5mins away and he usually stays there from Monday to Saturday from 8am to 8 30pm. I need someone who can bring him there a few times a week and pick him up a few times a week. Im usually coming back hime from work very late. You can take off a few days per week e,g. Wednesdays, Thursdays or so. Let me know if you have any other plans, just let me know in at advance and it shouldnt be a problem. I especially need help on Sundays because the nursery is closed. So it wpuld be grest if you could take care if Leo until late afternoon on this day. On the other days you will have plenty of time for yourself becuause he is usually in the nursery and you will definitely have evenings off and mornings. You can also bring your friends to my apartment. You have to change his diapers and shower him but Leo is the friendliest baby I know and he is very fun to be with. I miss him a lot because I work everyday but im single mom and would therefore appreciate your help.
