Homestay Volunteers

SICPF has established a homestay volunteer system where foreign guests visiting Sapporo for international exchange purposes can stay in the citizen volunteers' households.
This goals of this program are to deepen understanding of each other's countries and differences in culture and customs, and to promote exchange by having guests experience daily life in Sapporo/Japan.

SICPF homestay program is supported by the volunteers' goodwill. This family visit/stay program, which is aimed at offering interaction between guests and homestay families, can range from half a day to a few days. This program is not merely an offering of inexpensive accommodation or long-term housing.

In principal, only guests who can be verified by institutions in Sapporo will be accepted.
Example: International students belonging to universities or other schools in Sapporo, participants of international exchange projects in Sapporo, etc.

※ We do not accept individual travelers and group travelers.
