We are small team.

    Your task is to help with some tasks in our guesthouse such as cleaning up the rooms and preparing for cultural events, and we are happy if you will help our translation to other language especially, English, Chinese, and Korean!
    We also look for those who can stay at least more than 1 month! (3 months great and more than half a year awesome!)
    We will provide the payment, and your bed, wifi, washing machine, shampoo and soap stuff, but no meal is provided.

    You will be helping from 11:00 a.m. to around 13~ 15:00 p.m. 8 days-off every month and events are something like a dinner party (mainly Japanese food), Kyoto tour, Experience tea ceremony, etc.

    Have to workaway at least one month.
    You need to clean VERY WELL!!
    Have motivate and an attitude for cooperation.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!
