We - Jayden and Coen (Brothers) - have a small seasonal ski lodge in the heart of Hakuba, Japan. We only recently purchased our property and are currently renovation and turning it into an amazing space for people to spend time after long days on the hill. We have a vision of creating a eco focused sustainable ski lodge that will give people wanting to travel more conciously a place to stay in Hakuba. We are looking for people to help during our off season April to November.

We live in a small and beautiful village in the countryside of Japan. We can offer an authentic mountain experience and also share the local Japanese culture with you. I am very passionate about sustainability and would love to share my passion and teach people about sustainable lodge practices and also about sustainable travel.
We are looking for people who are handy with building maintenance and are able to help with maintenance jobs around the house, like tiling, building furniture and fitting out room as well as exterior painting. We also would like help with gardening and landscaping our outside area. We require people to help are also open to different art ideas.
You I'll have a private room in our lodge and a shared bathroom and toilet. Cooking can be shared or you can cook for yourself. I (Jayden) cook all vegetarian and vegan meals so if that works for you I am happy to share the cooking and enjoy meals together . We also have a garden and you are welcome to help yourself to any fresh produce from the garden.
We like to live a reasonably relaxed lifestyle in the mountains in Hakuba and would like people to also take a breath and enjoy the area with us.
