  • Description


    I am an architect, 37 years old. My wife is a teacher of kindergarden.
    My children are 10 years old boy,8 years old girl, 5 years old boy and 3 years old boy.
    We live in an old traditional house in country side.
    It built 90 years ago. So it's cool in summer and cold in winter.
    We want my kids have international thinking, so we often invite foreigners. We are very interested in different culture.
    What we want you to help is teaching English to my children and house work.
    I may ask workawayers not only house work but also working in my guesthouse for backpacker.
    If you prefer working in guesthouse, write on the message.

    The most important thing is how friendly to my kids you are.
    You can stay for several weeks or few days. Maximam 2 weeks.
    But we can talk about term.
    We give priority to couple travelers.

    I like running, hiking, fishing, cooking, swimming,camping and traveling.

    I don't smoke and drink much alcohol.
    I hope you bring new essence to my family. Then my kids get to hope to go to abroad.

    Even if my calendar get red color, contact me.
    I've got cancel sometimes and I often forget to change it.

    And it would be better what you expect on your travel in Japan.
    We try to arrange to make it for you!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    My town is near Sea, mountain and river. You can swim, fishing and hike. About 20 minutes to central city, so you can go shopping too.
    Just 1.5hour to Tokyo, and 2h to Kyoto by Express.
    It is also possible to go to Mt.Fuji in 1 day.
    There is no snow in winter. So it is more comfortable than other famous cities.
