  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 4 living in a popular suburb of Istanbul in a beautifully designed modern apartment.

    Our apartment is 3 min walk from markets, shops, cafes, cinema, and parks. And it is a 10 min drive by car to Belgrad Forest, a beautiful trekking place.

    Our apartment complex has an outdoor pool, basketball area, and table tennis and billiard area.

    I would like a Japanese, Indonesian, Thai, Malaysian or Filipino workawayer who would cook Japanese home food and if possible sushi. We as a family love sushi, sashimi, okonomiyaki, yakitori, karaage, Thai curry, etc. Please apply if you have a cooking experience.

    Also, my son is learning Japanese on his own, so it would be great if you can help him practice speaking Japanese.

    Work is weekdays and weekend is off.

    Only dinner is included for the week days. Workawayer is expected to help daily chores around the house.

    Thank you!
