We are a kiwi couple doing up a small Lodge in Hakuba. We love the outdoors (which is why we have chosen to live here!) and have recently brought our lodge so that we can enjoy the amazing mountains, lakes, rivers and community that we now live in. We're currently doing renovations and looking for friendly helpers that are keen to assist with a whole range of tasks - depending on the stage of the project the tasks will change so it'd be great to have helpers with a flexible mindset.

Help in the house
Hakuba is a wonderland of nature a and outdoor activities. In the summer/autumn there is mountain biking, hiking, rivers and lakes to enjoy. The winter it's a mecca for skiing and snowboarding. We live down a friendly street with close contact with our Japanese neighbours. We are an easy going couple that are keen to share our home and local knowledge with like minded and helpful travellers (we are travellers and have done work away ourselves in the past, so we get what you're up to).
We're currently doing renovations and looking for friendly, flexible helpers that are keen to assist with a whole range of tasks;
- renovation tasks (no prior skills required, but a bonus if you have them)
- chopping firewood (if you're keen/know how to get on the chainsaw it's a big bonus)
- cooking (for workaways and hosts only)
- cleaning (the endless task)
- seasonal tasks, clearing leaves, snow etc.
Depending on the stage of the project the tasks will change. It'd be a bonus if you had Japanese language skills as we are currently trying to learn ourselves.
Own bedroom with plenty of space. Can have single or double bed. Your living space is not part of the renovations, so it's a lovely place to stay. We can provide breakfast and do evening meals together.
There are some bikes here that helpers can use. We're happy to pick you up from Hakuba station or Hakuba bus terminal. We're also easy walking distance to echoland Main St which has convenience store, restaurants and bars.
