Great place to volunteer that I would highly recommend. Staff are great people who are easy to get along with, jobs are super easy and take a maximum of 4 hours (usually less) to complete which gives plenty of time to explore kawaguchiko and the surrounding area.

This was my first volunteering experience through World Packers and I couldn't have asked for better. I wasn't sure what to expect but everyone in K's House Fuji View made me feel at home. The work was easy to learn to someone who had no experience in cleaning as me. Had plenty of free time to explore Kawaguchiko, I saw most of Yamanashi prefecture and made valuable friends during the month I stayed here. Truly grateful for this place if I could I would have stayed longer but my trip circumstances didn't allow it. Very international and friendly place perfect to interact with a lot of people.

I would fully recommend applying to K's house and joining this team. They were so welcoming and fun to work along with, it was really easy to pick up the work and communicate any questions or concerns with them. We got to enjoy regular tea time altogether if work was finished early where we could relax, chat and eat some snacks together.
The hostel itself is really clean and nice to stay in. I spent time in both the dorm and private room and both were very comfortable. The area around the hostel is also super peaceful and it's amazing to see Mt. Fuji everyday.

Both me and my partner loved our experience. I cannot thank everyone at K’s house enough for the kind hospitality we received, if anyone is travelling through the area I would highly recommend this backpackers!
Great location and great/accomodating staff.

I had a meaningful experience at K's House Fuji View and would 100% recommend you apply. The staff/helpers were so welcoming and organized. I felt appreciated and safe. I was able to meet interesting travelers from around the world. The work was very fair; sometimes, we even finished early and had tea time. The hostel is clean and comfortable. I had a lot of free time to relax and my time there was very peaceful. Food is not included in the exchange but I was reimbursed weekly with a little food assistance cash. My favorite memory was the company potluck we had with past/current coworkers.
