Why can I stay in a guesthouse for FREE? What’ “Free Accommodation”?

dorm bed provided free accommodation staff withThere are relatively many beds in the dormitory room, and they’re not always full. If the beds cannot be occupied for a certain period of time, it’s more profitable to have someone else use it.  We exchange a place to stay for work within the guesthouse.  This is cheaper than hiring part-time cleaning staff.

This is a Work Exchange Style, so you won’t get paid but we won’t charge you for an accommodation fee at all. It means that all kinds of things related general affairs such as issuing salary slip, managing an accommodation fee would be omitted.

If you could live in an accommodation for free, you could live there for a longer period of time. Foreigners staying in Japan to study Japanese culture or Japanese language could stay as long as possible and save their money. On the other hand, there are many Japanese people who want to exchange languages with foreigners to brush up their languages.  Therefore, we would be happy if we could make a situation for both parties!!


Why is an international persons required?

free accommodation staffs

  1. We are aiming at an international accommodation. Since we are carrying out a program “Language Boot Camp” for Japanese people to learn the language, we want to hire as many as international persons in this guesthouse. What’s a Language Boot Camp?: As long as they stay at the guesthouse, guests are not allowed to use Japanese for the duration of their stay.
  2. If there is a native English speaker in the guesthouse, we should be able to ask him/her to write or check English for websites, postings or notices on the walls.
  3. We have wide variety of international guests, who do not always speak English. If there is a native speaker of Korean, Chinese, Spanish, French, Italian, German or other languages as a free accommodation staff in the guesthouse, he/she should be able to translate the language into English or Japanese.
  4. Many backpackers who travel the world work on a freelance basis. A person who has the ability to communicate on social media as a YouTube or Instagrammer will promote the guesthouse to all over the world. This kind of thing is worth the advertising cost of staying for free.
  5. Some of the backpackers working on a freelance basis have high IT literacy such as programmers, system engineers, web designers, or photographers. If they’re willing to use their skills and dedication to help run the guesthouse, this kind of work can be also exchanged into the accommodation fee.
  6. If you are a native speaker of major languages such as French, Spanish, Korean, Chinese or German except for English, We would like to make this homepage multilingual.
  7. The company or Individual owners can only hire foreigners as defined by the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Law. The type of work you can do and the hours you can work are limited by the visa.  Regulation of Working holiday visa is relatively lax. So the company or individual business owner does not have to do the annoying paperwork to hire a foreigner with a working holiday visa.
