Kuni-san is an amazing host, he will make you feel at home from the beginning till the end of your trip. His amazing cooking skills will make you travel all around the world !
Being a part of his team was one of the best experience that I lived in Japan.
The work is not complicated and you have plenty of time to explore the city.

The BEST experience ever!! 3 months flew by here. Kuni-San, Ai-San and the entire team soon became family to me. They are so kind and will support you in every way. Kuni-San is also an INCREDIBLE chef and prepares dishes from all over the world. He can adjust to your likes/diet and serves new dishes every day. The city Kamakura is now my favorite in Japan. The beach is near, Mt. Fuji is visible on clear days, and there are many shrines and temples to explore. Perfect if you want a local Japanese experience. The work wasn’t difficult either, plenty of free time. Don’t think twice, just apply!
