Volunteer Abroad in Japan for 1-12 Weeks
During our Japan Quest Volunteers will have the chance to step back in time and volunteer in Okazaki City, a town reminiscent of the Edo period, when Japan was in a time of peace and international openness. Japan is known for its traditional culture dating back thousands of years, while also having a vibrant society that continuously modernizes alongside the rest of the world in technology, fashion, cuisine and daily life.
