  • Unterkunft


    You will stay in a traditional Japanese house located in the countryside of Isahaya, we call it Coloring House. We are living apart in another house in the city.
    Coloring House is located 5.5 kilometers from the Isahaya train station. You will be surrounded by soothing nature. It is an ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. During your free time, you have the opportunity to walk/hike and discover the surroundings of Isahaya. The nearest 7 Eleven is a 30 minutes walk. If you are looking for a cozy place to have hot drinks and dessert, we recommend Cake&cafe 15tsubo, a local café 30 minutes walk from here. When you miss the city, there is a bus stop about a 15 minutes walk that will take you to Isahaya train station. From there you can take the train to Nagasaki or visit Isahaya. You will find many restaurants and cafés around the train station.

    Your area:
    During your stay, you will share a room with another workawayer. Most likely, of the same gender. You will have a bed and enough space for your personal belongings. It’s essential that you keep the environment organized and tidy. Eating in the room is not accepted. We provide bed sheets for you; please take good care of them.

    The kitchen is a shared area used daily. Keeping it clean and doing dishes is essential. You are invited to prepare your own breakfast with the ingredients available. Lunchtime is spent between volunteers and the host. For dinner, as the whole family comes over, it is very helpful if you prepare the meal and then we eat all together.

    We make sure to provide you with enough different ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner. During summer time, fresh crops from the garden will be ready to use. Be aware that shopping for groceries isn’t done daily. Make sure to plan your cooking according to the stock available. If you have any special reasonable requests, it is possible to discuss it.
