We are a couple of teachers, travelers, and animal lovers looking for one or two people to watch over our home and 2 young cats over the End of Year holidays. We live in the Southern tip of Okayama prefecture.
As of this writing, the borders are still closed to tourists. You MUST already be in Japan or a citizen or resident.
Our apartment is on the top floor of a 5 story building on a hill. It overlooks the surrounding neighborhood, factories, mountains, and Seto Inland Sea. There is NO elevator so you must be fit enough to walk up and down several flights of stairs.
It is a rural area by Japanese standards. Parking space available, or you can use our e-bikes to get around. There is a bus stop 10 minutes walk away that will take you to Kojimi (20 mins) or downtown Kurashiki (1 hour).
High speed unlimited WIFI included. 2 powerful heaters (air conditioners) with remotes. You are able to close off and seperate the rooms of the apartment when you need peace and quiet.
Our two adopted tabbys are twin brother and sister and will be about 3 years old. They are inseperable, where you find one, the other is sure to be nearby. Kiki and Tanu are very playful, vocal, cuddly, and curious. However, they have become quite shy around strangers. They are perfectly healthy, have had blood tests, vaccines, and are fixed. They are strictly indoor cats.
Those with experience caring for cats are strongly preferred.
Thank you for considering our housesit. We look forward to learning more about you!
