  • Description


    My name is Hiring, I live in Kamigori with my husband and two dogs. We run a restaurant and have a big beautiful garden in the mountainside which we renovated ourselves 10 years ago. We are looking for some help in out around the house.

    I speak very little English and my husband speaks none so it is important that workawayers can speak or are willing to learn Japanese. My husband and I are very outgoing, so we welcome people who are cheerful and love to communicate with people from different cultures.

    What else ...

    Usually we start the day early and take the afternoon off. Kamigori is a small town with not much to do so you have a lot of time to relax and do what you like. There are good cycling courses and you can play guitar. We have good wifi and a big garden you can spend time in. The largest city nearby is Himeji, which is a world heritage site. And one of the most famous Japanese traditional pottery cities named BIZEN is just 10 minutes away from here by car or train. You may have heard of the famous potter Hoshi‐san, who occasionally offers private classes at my place that you can enjoy.
