    SEARCHING FOR:
    -1 PERSON TO HELP WITH COOKING, HOUSEHOLD WORK, AND GARDENING (long term)
    -1 PERSON TO HELP WITH THE VIDEO EDITING (short term)

    WE ACCEPT LAST MINUTE VOLUNTEERS

    We're a busy couple living in a big house in the countryside at the foot of Mt Fuji in Fujinomiya, We have a small garden and a lot of space. Our house is on top of a mountain surrounded by cedar trees.

    I (Vicky) work full-time as an English teacher, I also write for a travel webpage for foreigners visiting Japan, and I work part-time for a webpage that teaches Swedish online. Ryan works in IT and works from home. We spend a lot of our free time exploring local places for my work (and because I love it!) I take both calligraphy class and Japanese class once a week. Well, to keep it simple, We're crazy busy and time is not enough - We could really do with some extra help.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I live in the country side in a local area with almost no foreigners. You can study Japanese cheaply here, and take calligraphy class too. There are lots of hiking opportunities, you'll have a lot of free time so you can visit many of the beautiful sights here: Mt Fuji, Shiraito waterfall, the Suicide forest, Tanuki lake, Izu, Shizuoka, Yamanashi etc.
