    We have a bike you can use to go around the city --- five minutes' bicycle ride to the station, two minutes' to the convenience store, three minutes' to the shopping mall and the supermarket.

    Help

    We'd like for you to talk with our 7-year-old son in English for a few hours a day and help him to improve his English.

    Our son, Shumpei, attended an international pre-school in Japan for 4 years, so he speaks English. But now he goes to Japanese elementary school and has few chances to speak English, so he needs your help.

    We'd like you to talk and play with him in English doing something fun: doing workbooks, playing games, reading books, playing sports, telling him stories about trivia and general knowledge or your travel experience, etc.
    If you like video games such as Minecraft and Animal Crossing, board games, and card games, you are perfect fit to help him.

    He is a funny, lively boy but I think he is easy to calm down, and he might be a bit shy at first.
    He likes Pokémon, LEGO, Nintendo games, board & card games, science, soccer and learning something new.

    Please note that we don't serve meals. Your room has a private kitchen. You'll need to buy or prepare your own meals. When we eat out, join us if you like.
