    Help

    We mainly want help with cleaning the lodge between guests. We usually only have guests on the weekend, so you will have most weekdays to ski/snowboard , explore our area, or take the train to different parts of Japan. If you want to make extra money during the week then we can always use help with maintenance projects or around the house.
