  • Description


    I'm Taka, we are couple and 3 children and live in Yatsushiro.
    Yatsushiro is middle size city at countryside, and that has plain, lots of mountain, and sea.

    My wife can understand English, because she had lived in USA for a year, but I’m not good at understanding English, and children cannot understand at all.
    However, in the future, I want to live in English speaking country, I want my children to learn English.
    Of course, I want to learn English too.
    So, we’ll be glad to be taught English like daily conversation.
    If you want to learn Japanese, I can teach you too.
    Let’s learn languages with us!

    I run real estate company, sometimes I mend easily.
    I’s hard to mend lonely, but my wife cannot help me because of children.
    Will you help me, when I need?

    I think we should make environment using English, so I’m going to invite a lot of workawayers.
    But we seldom leave to home long time, sorry to refuse your proposal.
    Other, I want to go abroad as workawayer to learn English.
    When I’m not home, we cannot be host in terms of safety.

    Our favorite thing;
    I: running, volleyball (Let’s play with our friendly team!), badminton
    Wife: leaning other languages, making sweets, music
    Children: dinosaurs, cute things, music

    [My preference for volunteers]
    *️️️️️️️️️️️People who can bring a nice smile and happy atmosphere.
    *️️️️️️️️️️️People who likes to have relationship with children.
    *️️️️️️️️️️️No couple, no group.
    *️️️️️️️️️️️People who wants to experience Japanese family.
    *️️️️️️️️️️️People can spend same life rhythm.
    *️️️️️️️️️️️No smoking

    The children cannot understand English, and I’m not good at hearing English.
    It may be so hard, I want you to do the best.

    The second, I sometimes go to do some easy mending of my apartment houses.
    Mending something arise when lessee go out, so it is not decided when I do.
    For example, painting, cleaning, carrying some stuff, no special skill is needed.
