We are developing an eco-tourism project in the Japanese Alps, and we are looking for outdoor enthusiasts to help us keep the project going. The project includes a ski lodge and a coffee shop in an area that offers multiple options for eco-tourism activities such as hiking, snowshoeing, ski and snowboard, cross country skiing, winter camping etc.
We provide accommodation on site in a small cabin and pay a minimum wage. A car can also be arranged.

Discover the lesser-known Japan of the mountains, which differs greatly from living in the big cities. The property is located at the base of the majestic Mount Daigenta in Echigo-Yuzawa, Niigata Prefecture, where the official summer sport is hiking and swimming in the mountain rivers. The hired candidate will have a lot of free time to ski or snowboard, when no snow needs to be removed or guests are not coming.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
