Santiago Guesthouse Naha

Working in a guesthouse, you will have the opportunity to practice not only your Japanese but also some other languages since we receive guests from many different parts of the world! On your days off, you can go snorkeling or scuba diving as well as visiting museums or other traditional and historical sites. Other than that, Naha can be quite a laid-back small city. If you are looking for some relaxing time with no stress, this could be a nice place to visit.

We are a team of international staff and we encourage people from all walks of life to join us through their journey across Japan. As a helper, you will be working as housekeeping 3-4 hours a day / 5 days a week in exchange for a bed in one of our dormitories. You are mostly expected to help with the cleaning, but you will find that a guesthouse can be a nice place to chat with other guests and make new friends (: In order to join us, you will need to be able to work in Japan. For example, having a Working Holiday Visa will do! Also, our helpers usually stay for about a month. At the moment, we are also looking for help in Reception, so if you speak Japanese let us know! In this case, we would be looking for people willing to stay 4 to 6 months with us.

What a way to start volunteering through WorldPackers! Not only did I have a great experience but also I made good friends at Santiago Guesthouse. Mei, the manager, is such a sweet person and very friendly as well. All the staff were also easy going people, funny, and up to help others anytime. Working hours were less than I was expecting but I suppose it’s because it wasn’t high season. The job itself was pretty easy. There’s also free coffee, tea, sugar, rice and some other stuff necessary for cooking.
I’m looking forward to going back to Santiago guesthouse Naha again.

I think Okinawa it's one of the best places to visit! It may be for the beautiful places, (specially those amazing beaches), or the people, everybody is really nice and kind.
The work is really simple, cleaning the bedrooms and bathrooms.
It was our fist experience traveling with the Worldpackers program, and we loved it! The people are amazing! We definitely recommend Santiago Guesthouse Naha for everyone who's planning for a place to feel relaxed and surrounded of heart warming people. Mei and the others made us feel at home, even far away from home :)
