    Descripción

    We live in a nice village in Okayama prefecture. There is a 100-year-old house with tatami floor, kotatsu (Japanese table with heating underneath), and a beautiful view, as you open the traditional doors of the house. There is also a bamboo forest that provide an opportunity to discover the beauty of the Japanese countryside.

    Your main task is playing with our two daughters (6 and 8 years old). We want you to teach them English, so speak as much as you can with them. You do not need to have experience working with children before, you just need to love kids and enjoy playing with them.
    I want my daughters to know about different cultures and values and it would be great if you could share your skills with them.

    Also, as we have guests staying in the house with us. You are expected to join guest events experiencing Japanese culture.
    Depending on the season, we will have various countryside experiences to do ;
    in spring we cut bamboo chutes
    summer we join many local festivals,
    fall gather fruit and make jam,
    winter we cut and burn bamboo).

    You will be able to sleep in a wooden dormitory, on a Japanese futon.
    There is a quite well-equipped kitchen in the main house and you will be able to use it.
    Hours expected is only 3 hours,
    So basically we don't provide food and you should buy your own food by yourself.

    Hours expected ;3 hours a day, 5 days a week
