    Description

    We are a family of 6, Japanese and American couple and the kids who speak both Japanese and English but mostly English at home. We are interested in meeting new people and learning from them about their world. Our biggest interests at the moment are our kids and their future with more holistic, cooperative and creative approach.

    Omihachiman is a small and quiet town and you will get a sense of what life in a small town in Japan feels like. The city is small enough it is walkable to shops. There are also small lakes and lake biwako (the largest lake in Japan) near by that is accessible by either bus or bicycle (there is an extra set of bicycle you can use). Kyoto is accessible in under an hour and Osaka in a little over an hour by train.

    We want you to make the most of your time here and we encourage people to explore. Weekends and most week nights are free time for you, and we are happy to help you find places and experiences of interest to you.

    We are looking for someone with two traits;

    -An artist who is not afraid to experiment and produce work in a short period of time.
    -Someone who can have fun with and be patient with children.

    Our focus used to be primarily on child-care and creative aspect was secondary to this workaway project. Now we are trying to experiment a bit more with creative aspects and consider childcare to be a bi-product as our children become bigger and are more capable.

    We have four children; ages 10, 7, 5 and 2. It is very important that you enjoy being around children and have patience and curiosity while interacting, engaging, and playing with them.

    The hours will mostly be on weekdays. We could discuss the details and plan schedules together that fit your interests and needs. We are in the experiment phase so situations are pretty open-ended.

    While we ask for you to be with the kids for about 20 hours a week, please keep in mind that kids have no concept of schedules. Pretty much anytime you are around they will want to play and interact with you. We will do our best to take over, but if you need a break it is probably best to go to your room or be out of the house.

    You will have a private room, but the rest of the house is shared with our family. Meals are provided in that we welcome you to eat with us and share in what is prepared; the cuisine is homestyle Japanese and simple. Though we do make pancakes on Sunday mornings:)

    We would like your help keeping the house in order. We will not ask you to do our household chores or clean the toilet, but we do ask you to clean up after yourself and help out... just like a member of the family would.

    As mentioned above, when we welcome someone into our home, we treat them like a member of the family and we would like them to return the same consideration:

    Please conserve energy and water
    Please keep the house and amenities clean
    Please keep cell phone use to a minimum around children (We do not have TV in the house. We try not to be on our phone or computer when our children are around.)
