“Matsuri hostel”is a new hostel opening in Takasaki, Gunma. We are looking for a bar manager to join our team for our grand opening in January 2023.

We are located in the Gunma-machi area, which is roughly in the center of the prefecture. There are plenty of local historic sites and ancient ruins to see, but with all the modern conveniences you'd want nearby. This location also makes it easy to explore other parts of Gunma.

The Hostel
There are almost no hostels in Takasaki, giving us an unique competitive edge. At “Matsuri hostel”, we can accommodate up to 22 guests in our cozy little hostel. Our small size allows us to really connect with the local community; we want to find hidden gems around Takasaki and share them with the world. We will regularly post YouTube videos about the best local things to see and do so that our guests can make the most out of their stay.

The Bar
The open space will be utilized as both a bar open to the public and as a hangout spot for guests staying at the hostel.

<Job Description>
Although “Matsuri hostel” won't open until January, we are ready to hire the right talent now. We want to help support you while you challenge yourself in Japan. We are a flexible team and are willing to schedule an interview over Zoom as necessary. We look forward to receiving your application.

You'll make an excellent addition to our team if you:
・consider yourself a "people person" and have strong communication skills
・can come up with strategies for attracting new customers
・want to feel as if this hostel is your own
・want to connect with the local community and actively promote tourism in Gunma
