Volunteer in Japan

There are many fantastic organisations to volunteer in Japan with. However, there are very few comprehensive resources out there in English to help you find them.

If you want to volunteer in Japan, it is helpful if you understand Japanese, as most organizations don’t have any English staff. However, there are many organizations who welcome non-Japanese speaking volunteers too.

So, we decided to create this map to show you all the opportunities for volunteer work in Japan. We hope you find this useful.

Are we missing any? Please email us if you know of any / want to list your organization on this map.
