  • Description

    We’re a young, energized and open-minded couple, currently in Japan. Just finished our winter job, now going to explore this beautiful country more. There’s a little bit about each one of us:

    Hi, I’m Ai a Japanese Singaporean girl 27 years old this year. Will not hesitate to get my hands dirty. Dreaming of having a self sufficient life.

    Hoping to gain different skills and experiences. I reckon I am a good painter, fisher, explorer, an average cook ( trying to get better!), fantastic weeder, love animals and also a great listener.


    I’m Nikolay, 30 years young from Russia. This is my second year of working in Japan. I’m a professional ski, snowboard and watersports instructor with lots of experience in multiple countries.
    Also I’m familiar with carpentry and constructing (built my own tiny wooden house back home), car and bike repairing (have a degree in that). In Russia I live in a countryside, so gardening, farming and landscape design is what I’m happy with literally since I was born.
    Traveling itself doesn’t make me 100% happy, I like to do something using my skills and improve in that, I like to see results of my efforts, that’s why I’m happy to be a part of Workaway community.
