About this program
If you are a foreign visitor to Japan, and you would like a taste of everyday Japanese life in a Japanese home, please sign-up for a Home Visit. The Home Visit program was created to allow foreign visitors the chance to experience Japanese life, and for Japanese citizens to have the opportunity to get involved in grassroots international exchange and understanding. The Home Visit will take 2-3 hours.
- Meals are generally not included.
- Overnight stays are not offered.
How to sign up for a Home Visit
Please make a reservation at least one day in advance, at the International Exchange Lounge in Peace Memorial Park. Bring your personal identification (e.g. passport) with you to sign up.
You must sign up in person. We do not accept applications via e-mail, phone or mail. After your request has been taken, we will try to find a host family that best meets your requests..
