    Hi to the world!

    I have spent the past 8 years living all over Europe, Australia, and New Zealand and I have returned to my hometown to create an international community in Mie Prefecture. I would like the people of my rural town to experience speaking with foreigners and the culture of your country. We are looking for a friend who loves talking about culture and would like to share their experiences with Japanese people and who likes playing with kids. Just need a willingness to talk with locals.

    The house is located in a small town. However, you can reach a convenience store, a super market and a 100 yen shop just 10 minutes away by foot, or you can use a bike which will take about 5 minutes.

    The closest train station is 10 minutes by bike. My place closes Mondays and Sundays You have time to explore many places. Nara and Osaka are about 2 hours away by train and Kyoto is 3 hours.

    There are some famous places in Mie. Iga-Ninja, Ise-shrine, Matsusaka meat, Kumanoko road(world heritage), Mikimoto pearl Island, Suzuka circuit(a race track) and etc... even though it's quite country side, you can still go many places.

    Thank you for reading this, and if you are interested please send me a message!

    Stay at my house and help to communicate with Japanese.
    I would like you to talk and make friends with those who come to our place.
    All members come to the same building where we live, so upstairs will be your room and downstairs is the living room to chat.
    Those who come to meet you they may or may not be able to speak English, and they may be shy.
    So, why am I opening this place because it will give Japanese people a chance to discover new culture and to have new experiences.
    1. Share new cultures and introduce the outside world.
    2. To not be afraid to go to other countries and communicate with foreigners.

    ·Every Sundays and Mondays are closed

    The purpose of this workaway is about cultural exchange. I used to live in 6 different countries and shared houses with a lot of people. Therefore, I would like to give Japanese people a chance to have similar experiences. Even though people can not speak English well, they will still be able to communicate with you.
    If you would like to make Japanese local friends it would be good place for you! You can go out with them.
    Anyway, I have many ideas to do so, so if you are interested send me a message please.
