Komae House

I need helpers after Dec. 2, 2023 who can help us for 2 to 3 months. I have a unique container share house with 9 private rooms, 3 shared bath/toilet rooms and one shared kitchen where our voluntary helpers and some foreign tenants live. I am looking for some helpers to maintain, cleaning the shared bath/toilets, kitchen and corridor and outside trash area, for this share house. Each one can work 2 hours a day, 5 days a week. a room shared with 2 to 4 helpers with same gender so I need to know your gender. I supply rice and pasta. It may be helpful if a helper can stay here 2 to 3 months. I must have an email confirmation to [email protected] since some people have never showed up and Facebook Messenger account which we use this for our daily communication.

My name is Kazumi Ogawa, 70 years old male, lived and worked in Los Angeles for 35 years, came back to Tokyo 8 years ago, taking care of my elderly mother and father`s business. I am a member of the intercultural committee in the city of Komae, Tokyo, letting many young foreigners to live like ordinary Japanese. The city of Komae is a quiet suburb of big Tokyo metropolitan, 30 min. from Shinjuku, Shibuya and 40 min. from the Tokyo JR Station.

I had a great time in Komae. Probably the best part is that you can always find buddies for a trip or can join others and you can get many good advice on places worth to visit.
I hope I can stay there again in the future.

Had a nice time at Komae House! I was told that unfortunately due to Covid it was not as lively as it usually is but i met some wonderful people that i would consider lifelong friends. I would return to this work away if I'm ever in the area again. Thanks Komae House
