Had a great time in Nomad!! The staff is really friendly and always helping you, thank you guys 🤗 The volunteer vibe is also fantastic! Always someone hanging out in the common spaces, and planing stuff ✨ Miss everyone 🥺 The work is not hard, only 3h, and they explained everything you need to know 👌

I can only recommend this experience to anyone considering coming to the guest house! The residential area is lovely, close to Asakusa and many temples and shrines. The work is fair and there is no stress. Everyone is super kind and helpful and the atmosphere is very homely. I felt welcome from the first second and extended my stay more than once because of that. ありがとうございますGomez san, Kase san, Maki san and Chieko san and all volunteers/guests for this special and lovely time here in the guest house!!

My experience was really good, the entire work team is friendly and concerned about the volunteers, they make you feel in a pleasant environment. The work to be done is not complicated and does not require major effort, the work schedule is met. In addition, there are really entertaining activities that make you feel much more comfortable and in a familiar environment. I completely recommend this place, apart from the aforementioned, the location is favorable and allows you to get to know other sectors of the guest house without incurring large expenses.

I had a great time here! The people are amazing and we got to da lot of fun stuff together, like going to Karaoke, making Udon together or having a picnic :) The work is fair and the working hours are respected. On your days off or after work you have plenty of time to explore the guest house!
