We are a family with three children ages 3 to 8. I am australian and my wife is Japanese. My wife is running English-language lessons. We want friendly, outgoing English speakers to help her teach kids and adults in the lessons. You don't need to be native English speakers but must be very fluent and confident. Also do some cleaning in the house and help look after the kids. There is some renovation work to do, if that's your thing. Or help with social media etc. Whatever you're
good at... Accommodation in exchange for these tasks. You will have your own room, or share a room if there are two of you. Meals are your responsibility (there is a kitchen, fridge etc for your use). We need a total of 20 hours a week per person. The house is on the water at Hinase, Okayama. It is a three-storey building, 5 minutes walk from Hinase Station.

You can see life in a smallish city in Japan, learn some Japanese from a bilingual family and have fun teaching Japanese to speak English. Hinase is a different side of Japan than the big cities, so the cultural experience is much more authentic. Having English speakers on hand will also help you ease into life in Japan.
Helping my wife run her English lessons. The people who enjoy it most have outgoing personalities. You don't need experience; just be willing to talk English and have fun. Also helping clean the house (wash dishes, vacuum floors etc). Or renovation, or social media, or whatever you're good at.
You will have a private room in a three-storey house on the water at Hinase.
There are ferries to the islands from the harbour in front of the house. Bikes are available for rent to get around. The station is close and Osaka is two hours by local train.
