  • Description


    We are a guesthouse in Kamakura (just south of Tokyo) looking for help with night shift reception. Night shift usually entails welcoming guests when they arrive and leave as well as making them feel at home and so they enjoy their holiday while they are here.
    You will be surrounded by many Japanese people in this smaller town who love meeting foreigners to chat with!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Just being around so many Japanese people will allow you to learn the language a little bit. There are also many young people and musicians here so you can immerse yourself in the modern culture and make some good friends.

    Kamakura is known for some nice temples and a large Buddha, there are plenty of things to do. There are also hundreds of cafes, restaurants, bars and vintage shops to explore and try. There are direct trains to Yokohama and Tokyo, and a 15 minute walk to the beach famous for windsurfing and waveriding.

    Although the tasks are relatively simple, as with most things we wish that we can find someone who will take a professional and serious approach. You will be rewarded with a fun and different Japanese experience while you are here.

    We would like people who can stay for at least a month, and if you don't speak Japanese, then a good grasp of English is nice.

    Duties would be 4 times a week for 6 hours in the night/early morning. Mainly just looking after the house and helping people if they need it.

    If you want to contact us, a short overview of past experience, how long you can stay and what you want to get out of this experience is the most important, so we can get an idea of who you are.
