  • Description


    We operate a specialized secondary school and related educational activities in Fukuoka, in the South of Japan.

    Along the school section, we also organize cooking classes for children, English lessons for Japanese children and teenagers, programming classes with LEGO-building, day-service (after-school care) for children with disabilities, and picture books publishing.
    Our work is also linked with an organic farm and a correspondence-based high school on Yakushima island, in Kagoshima Prefecture.
    In all these areas, we always aim to better our influence on the planet and support the youth of the future through holistic and global education. For this reason, we are following various international resolutions, such as the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).

    If you would like to be a part of our project or if you have any question, feel free to send us a message.
    We are looking forward to seeing you in Fukuoka!

    私達は、鹿児島県 屋久島で、オーガニックファームと通信制高校を運営しています。
    学校教育の活動以外にも、子供向けの料理教室、レゴを使ったプログラミング教室、障害児向けのデイサービス(after-school care)、絵本の出版などの運営も行っています。

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Some of our staff speak English, French or Spanish, however the vast majority of your interactions will be with Japanese people, so it is a great opportunity to practice the language.
    You will be able to meet many generations of Japanese, especially young children and students.
    Finally, you will be staying in a share-house in Fukuoka, so you can enjoy all the culture this city has to offer.

  • Help


    We are looking for people to help us with:
    1. School related activities, such as sharing your culture with students, teaching English, attending events with them, etc.
    2. Assisting in cooking classes for children. You don’t need to be a good cook, as you would mainly assist the chef and help the children cook while using English. You can learn Japanese recipes and share your own!
    3. PR related activities, such as writing articles and sharing pictures on blogs and social media, translation into your language, etc. You don’t need to be proficient in communication or computer field, as any skill is welcome.
    4. Help with programming class events.
    5. International exchange in after-school day services, with school-age children. (For example, teach children the traditional games of your country.)

    Depending on your Japanese level and your own hobbies and talents, there are many things to do, and we welcome suggestions!
    Our students don't stay the whole day, so you will only help during activities.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Fukuoka has been selected as one of the most-livable cities in the world. It has a lively center with many cultural events, shopping malls and busy bar streets, as well as beautiful parks, quiet temples, and the mountains and the sea easily reachable by bicycle, bus or subway!
    It is also the city with the youngest population in Japan, as many young Japanese people come to experience Fukuoka’s trendy lifestyle, relaxed attitude and friendly population.
    But perhaps what Fukuoka is most famous for is the food: countless small restaurants, cafes, bars and even food stalls spread throughout the city, serving all kinds of food at all prices.

    Finally, the city is only 20 minutes away from the airport by subway and has easy access to all the main attractions of Kyushu. Hop on a bus or train on your off-days and enjoy Dazaifu shrine, Aso volcano, Beppu onsen city, Nagasaki, etc.

    For a week or a few months, Fukuoka is definitely one of the best places to feel the authentic Japanese lifestyle.
    By joining us here, we hope you will support our social and environmental projects and enjoy the unique experience in Japan while having fun with us and other Workawayers!
