    Description

    Welcome to Nagasaki prefecture, one of the most historical areas in Japan!

    Nagasaki Prefecture (長崎県, Nagasaki-ken) consists of the northwestern tip of Kyushu and hundreds of smaller islands. The prefectural capital is Nagasaki City. Another popular tourist destination is the Shimabara Peninsula with Mount Unzen at its center, Sasebo city, and various beautiful islands such as Goto island, Hirado island, and more.

    Nagasaki prefecture is the origin of Japan opening its gate to Western countries when ships from Portugal arrived back in 1550. This was the beginning of Japan to have Western influences in so many ways, and there are still lots of cultures, architects, and historical food here that were born more than 450 years ago, which people are able to experience today.

    Nagasaki prefecture is also a sanctuary for Christianity because of its history, as well as a place that represents 'World Peace', governed by the history of having the atomic bomb during World War 2nd.

    Hello Workawayers!

    We are a unique Online English Speaking Community in Japan, that has both local Japanese people and foreign members from overseas, that gather and share our lives in English. We have just registered on workaway in June 2019 in order to have more interesting people from all over the world be a part of our wonderful Online English Language Community.

    We run an Online English Language Community for adults of all ages and different backgrounds.

    We are looking for people from overseas who can speak English fluently, to chat with our local Japanese members on our weekly zoom sessions. Minimum one month.

    We offer Japanese cultural experiences throughout our Online English Language Community, as well as the opportunity to talk with local Japanese people and get to know the culture better.

    So many people have made life-long friendships through our Online Community (some of them even got married!), whilst others decided to live in Japan after their experience with us.

    We are looking forward to meeting and talking with you.

    We are an Online English Speaking Community where both locals and people from all over the world gather and enjoy sharing our stories and experiences.

    In order to stay with us, we would like you to participate in our Online Zoom Sessions. The online sessions are held on the 2nd and 4th week of every month from Tuesday to Friday. Every night there will be two sessions: 7:00pm - 7:50pm and 10:00pm - 10:50pm (JST). 

    A typical night would involve talking to our guests in English and listening to their stories. This is an exchange of language and culture. You can talk with both Japanese and foreign online members and learn about Japan & other cultures.

    We also have extracurricular events! These can be karaoke parties, BBQs, day trips, and much more! Our regular guests are always eager to have fun with new members.

    Our members are mainly local Japanese people who wish to become able to speak English, as well as to meet people from different countries. We wish to provide a new way of thinking and living.

    We recommend you to talk with them about what you did or plan to do in Japan, and get more information about places to go or the Japanese culture. Also, it is very important for you to LISTEN to our guest's stories as much as possible, as being a great listener is one of the crucial things we need all the workawayers to do. We have guests coming from all walks of life, from all over Japan, and from all generations.

    This will be a great opportunity for you to get to know Japanese people's lifestyle, mindset, and meet so many interesting people that you wouldn't meet otherwise.
