    Description

    Koyasan is a famous tourist location. We are about 3 hours south of Kyoto and 2 hours south of Osaka in the central area of JAPAN, known as KANSAI. We are also on the Kumano Kodo and Ohenro pilgrimage paths. At 900m above sea level, it will be cold and snowy in Dec-Feb.

    There are about 100 Buddhist temples here in a tight cluster. It is a prestigious location and generally quite expensive to stay here.

    I am looking for help with the following tasks around the house:
    Cleaning. Painting wooden floors and walls inside the house. Heavy garden duties - moving very big rocks and soil.

    The offer is unpaid, [ we are a private residence and not commercial ]
    You will receive free food and lodgings and laundry services. You are kindly requested to assist with food preparation and laundry. I am a good cook and I keep a very nice kitchen.

    You will have a beautiful room in a luxury house, which has been renovated to a very high standard. We are on the main street of Koyasan, close to all amenities and close to the great Buddhist temples, pagodas, university and museum.

    There is no WIFI at the house, however, we have excellent FREE internet at our nearby convenience store and at two tourist offices just 15 minutes walk away. You will have plenty of time free for internet and for exploring beautiful Koyasan.
