For the last 10 years I have been renting a 90 year old house whose owner refuses to do any repairs. Got my lawyer to get the rent greatly reduced but having trouble getting any repairmen to work WITH me. I love doing DIY but have very little free time due to a busy work schedule and running a volunteer group. None of my friends are handy.

Are you the type that looks at a rundown shack and sees only possibilities?
Can you come to Japan in the near future before it gets too hot?
I can give you a very convenient place to stay where you can easily go for day trips to Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Himeji, and even Hiroshima. I know of so many discounts and can introduce you places not in guide books. You can come on a 3 month tourist visa and if you want to stay longer than a month we can see how we get on, or I will find a home-stay with a nice Japanese family for you.

Thank you so much, that's a very nice offer :)
I'm thinking about going to Japan in December... I was in Tokyo last time, so might take a trip to other places like Osaka or Kyoto. The trip should not be over 10 days. Do you think it is a good idea to visit these city at that time? Would it be cold?
Let's have a chat in Thailand Forum ^v^ lanla lanla~

Sorry LittleKati but I am looking for a Jack (or Jill) of-all-trades to stay for a month in the near future.
I will send you a private message with my opinion of the weather in December.
Regards, Hayleigh
