General garden and house tasks help needed in a Japanese house!

El intercambio

We have a typical Japanese house in the Hakusan mountains. We would like some help with the garden/allotment, repair, and maintenance tasks, and improvements. The duties are not so hard, and you will have plenty of time to explore the area. If you enjoy hiking, you will love this place :)

Programa detallado

This is a house in the Hakusan mountains in Kuwajima village, a part of the historic Shiramine area.
We have a house up there that needs people to keep it running, clean & maintained, and the garden planted and harvested. There might not be work on some days, but you are welcome to stay anyway. We are simply happy to be a part of your stay in Japan and to welcome you with our facilities.
Japan has three famous spiritual mountains, Mt. Take, Mt. Hakusan, and Mt. Fuji. Our village is the gateway to Mt. Hakusan. It is not so difficult to hike when the weather is good - you can go up and back down on the same day, or stay at a lodge at the top. There are also other, easier hikes in the area if you would prefer. There are various things to do in the local area and further afield. The onsen water here is famous in Japan for its health properties (it is said it is healing for your skin).

Actividades & Turnos

Times can be flexible but depend often on when the owner is in the house. The owner speaks English fluently. The owner is from abroad, but has lived in Japan for 20 years.
The owner will provide a list of things to do, all you have to do is choose from the list and work on those items when you can.
In the evenings, you can use our huge telescope to see the milky way on cloudless nights, cook dinner in the kitchen, have a bath in the house or at the local onsen (hot spring), and relax.


A lovely mountain area. The neighbors are generally elderly, so no loudness or parties at night, please.
You may have a barbecue in the garden. Please be sure to extinguish the fire properly when you finish.
Please take your shoes off when in the house. You can use the slippers provided, or just your socks.
If you have a problem, please tell us and we will help. If you make a mistake with something, we don't mind! We will teach you.
