    Unfortunately, we cannot accept anyone who is not coming to Japan on a working holiday visa. You will be asked to show your passport when you come. Please only apply if you are able to stay minimum one month. Longer than one month is better for us.

    We usually don't host couples or two people who know each other. Shifts are usually done by one Workawayer so it's not possible for us to give you the same shift or the same days off. The work includes:

    -cleaning the house
    -answering guest questions
    -helping guest if needed
    -reception work and answering mail from guests
    - Collecting data from multiple sources (booking websites)
    - Analysing the data
    - Give recommendations and improvements on pricing and booking strategy
    - Build a tool so we are able to analyse the data in the future ourselves
    - Social media work

    - (5+ hours a day, 5 days a week)
