About Us

Qualified English Speaking Babysitters Only

babysitters & company was established in 2010 and is owned and operated by Tatsuya Kawase, who is an advocate for high-quality babysitting service in Japan. After all screening process, including references checks, personal interviews and skill trainings and tests, we end up hiring only a few. Therefore, the number of babysitters is very limited, usually between 20 and 30 babysitters are working but the quality is guaranteed. Most are aged 20+ including university students, qualified teachers, house wives, parents and nurses. They are all fluent in English and many are even native Japanese, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Mandarin or/and Korean speakers. As we have been delivering customized, dependable and affordable care for both local and guest families nearly 10 years, we ensure that our English-speaking babysitters will bring you the best comfort you can expect while you are here in Japan.

24/7 Babysitting

To meet all kinds of needs, our service runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our babysitters are able to accompany your children on your business or family trip to make sure everything runs smoothly. If you would like a date night with your spouse/partner, our babysitter can stay up late and take care of your children until you return. Most of our babysitters are living in the central areas, so missing the last trains is not a big issue. Additionally, we are pleased to give you some tips for your next journey to Japan. There are many great places and things you can see and do as locals with/without your children.

Hotel and Airbnb Babysitting

We provide our babysitting services at many hotels and Airbnb in Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Kyoto and Osaka. Please feel free to contact us and let our experienced babysitters take care of your children while you have things to do. FYI, some local accommodations are very difficult to find. Please make sure you ask the owner to provide the exact address of their accommodation if you are staying in a local house or apartment. It is very rare but some accommodations might be very difficult to find and we might need you to provide the directions prior to our babysitter's arrival.

Rate Starts at 2,500 yen/h

In Japan, babysitting has the image of being too expensive for frequent use, and culturally unfamiliar. However, to meet changes in society, our company strives to provide a valuable service to as many people as possible, with flexibility and hospitality. To support families with children at home alone, or with needs of extended care, we have developed a low rate system that promotes for longer babysitting hours.

Flexibility & Liability

Our babysitters are all very flexible and trying to be helpful without extra charges. They will offer light meal preparation, school pickup, homework support, sick child care and even field trips in town. However, due to safety reasons, our babysitters are not authorized to cook, do laundry, clean and drive. Having said that, accidents can happen when parents are present or under the care of a babysitter. So our babysitting services are fully covered with general liability insurance.

We also collaborate with high-end travel agencies. If your client requires an English speaking babysitter/s in Japan, please feel free to let us know.
