  • Description


    Hello! I am Saori.
    I live in Paris now.
    I return to home country , Japan, Fukuoka (South Japan, called "Kyusyu "area) in March 2020.

    I would like to keep my language skills both of French and German to keep comunication with our precious people met in the two country where I have ever lived in this 5 years. (Paris for 1 year 02.2019-2020.02, Berlin 05.2016-03.2017)
    I do music (piano mainly but also many instruments), do decoration(including Origami) ,so welcome creaters!

    Recently, affected by daughter, l like the dance best.

    As my daughter, she is used to France, but she visited Graz, Austria, and watched "Rot Kapchen" , so she remembers German too.
    Honesty saying, she master French more than I expected, so I wrote "looking for French speaker".
    but not hesitate to ask me.

    My family is consists of 3 people, my husband (resercher of physic), two years old daughter and me.
    My husband is quite busy doing research and sometimes go to business trip for weeks.
    My daughter, she is just happy in France every day.
    The life in Europe made her social and speak French, so she understands French.

    I and my dautugher are so used to welcome nice people who helped us in Paris. We have mother in Paris.She is not real mother , but she helps and cheer us up a lot.

    We have ever experienced 1 workawayer in Japan before (She was French), and 3 baby sitters
    and house helpers in Paris.
    We were very happy to stay with them.

    I am looking for the person who we could feel like part of family, because our family is small.

    We are very familiar to west district, seaside -Fukuoka since we have lived there in 2018. Our home is located in this area.
    Our home is located in the place comutting by 30 minutes-train from central Hakata,40 minutes from Fukuoka international airport

    Our couple used to live in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Kyoto before. So we are expert of travelling Japan too.
    Kanagawa is our hometown.
    We studied to have degrees in Kyoto, historical city.

    In Europe, we have spent time doing a lot of beautiful things and meet nice people at center social, parental nersery, local festival, friendly crape shop, many artistic events,piano concert....etc....in Paris, in Graz, in Brlin.......

    We want to keep this life style with you after we go back to Japan.
    So for the person who likes to envolved in communication or sharing your skill , I think we have sympathy.

    I preffer female energitic, passionate workawayer.

    Welcome open minded workawayer!
