Help at my guest house near Nagoya, Japan

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionI run a guest house of art and fun people can enjoy during their stay and making another guest house of ninjya concept. I sing Jazz.If somebody can play jazz piano,I would love to play together! I like listening electro, chillout, minimal, easy listening like bossanova, jazz, acoustic...always with music! I'm tarot reader and travel writer, too. I love food, both cooking and eating.
    I used to have my own cafe and I sometimes sell my food at the market. I have original panda character who eat a lot. I want to have slow life, but I don't know why I'm always busy! That's because I like to do everything that I think it's interesting. That's my life! :)
    I like to meet people all over the world. I'm glad to tell about our culture and our tradition. It's very exciting to find something inspire me! For my slow life, I also need maintenance for my body and mentality. I would like to learn massage, exercise, dance, piratisu, yoga, and so on. It's difficult to keep doing it alone, so I would like to accompany to enjoy together!
    I'll open language cafe at my place soon. I still want to learn English for myself. And also Chinese language. I would like to improve my business and myself! It's difficult to take big step for anything, but if it works even tiny bit in good way, it's worth. To respect and appreciate each other and have good time is the best. My friends are all nice and I think it's good experience to meet local people, other volunteer, tourists for you, too! I hope everyone's experience at my place will be great! Thank you!

  • Hours per day 5 hours a day, 5 days a week
  • Work requirements: After I had many volunteers, I realized only having fun together is not meaningful. Of course it's amazing to exchange idea, knowledge, culture with people from all over the world. But I use my time and money to accept people at least. I have to teach every detail from the beginning and check how new person can do and assist. Some working experience is required as I need people to be somehow independent about tasks while I can focus on my work, too. If you are really traveler who want to explore many famouse places or often want to go to city center of Nagoya, want to hike in the mountain, my place is not right. If you want to have experience to live in traditional house and learn our culture, meet local, good food, welcome here!
