All around player in a remote homestay in Japan - private room!

I loved my stay at the home resort. The hours of work were perfect, leaving me enough time to enjoy the snow or onsen or just relax, because there wasn't much else to do without access to a car. I was lucky enough to be able to try the only staff snowboard that there was. The chairlift doesn't even go to half the home, but since I'm a beginner that was okay for me. Living with the other volunteers was great! Everyone was so nice. The only thing I thought was the heating situation wasn't optimal, the heaters stop by themselves after some time so you'd wake up in a very cold room.

Had a super fun time in the home! Working hours were respected and the kitchen was always stocked with groceries weekly :) House is a bit dirty but it was a fun place to live in with the people I met there!

The members of the House and staff were supper welcoming. There are new people going to volunteer every so often and you are able to create strong relationships with them and your amazing surroundings!

This volunteering was a beautiful experience. Working with Dan, John, and the Resort crew in general was really great. They are all respectful of your timetable and how you combine it with any other job you have. The landscapes were stunning and we could visit and enjoy them thanks to their help in terms of transportation or useful tips. If you are a lover of Japanese food and want to connect with the locals, this is also the place for you. It's close enough to the home so you can try its restaurants and connect with its people, far enough so you can enjoy peaceful nature. 100% recommended!

I had such a fantastic time at the home Resort, it never felt like work. I worked mostly with the Summer camps & in the kitchen sometimes. The summer camp days were long, sometimes all day & overnight on occasion, but it never felt like work. Teaching the kids how to build a camp fire, make s'mores, kayaking & hiking all day pushed their limits and mine in a good way. Working with Aki in the kitchen, Dan & John with the campers was a great experience. They're all easy to work with & are good about balancing work & time off. I recommend volunteering here. I felt welcome, safe &respected.

This was my second volunteer experience but I think it felt more like summer adventure (in summer camp ) It took almost all my time since I had day and night shifts but I truly enjoy the time and was happy to help with everything (it definitely didn't feel like work and every day was fun and interesting + I tried a lot of new activities ) Met a lot of nice and interesting people. This was perfect for summer and I really would like to come back to this beautiful place. Already miss Hokkaido and the home Thank you)))

It was such a nice experience in the home, the whole crew is friendly and helpful, they will make their best to make you have a good experience, you will never run out of food in the house, just if you are coming to the home, be aware of the food, don't waste it. there were around 7 of us in the house, we split tasks and home cores. I learned various values during this time, i appreciate the work i did, and the importance of the team work. Being surrounded by nature was very important for me, as i am used to big cities. Thank all of you guys, and see you soon!!!

My time at the home was great ! This was my first workaway experience and stayed longer than expected. The place is very remote and there is not much action around in off-season but this makes you have the whole nature just for you (hikes, kayak, surf, golf...), perfect to have a relax travel break far from the overwelming japanese cities. The team is very easy-going, fun and flexible. And you will be sharing the house with other foreigners, very nice vibe going 🙂 The work can vary everyday which is nice ! Can be outdoor, enjoying the nature and the beautiful view.

Vincent, I want to express my sincere gratitude for your visit to Iwanai. I understand that this time of year may not have been the most eventful, but I genuinely appreciate the time you spent here and the invaluable support you provided for the various projects we had going on. Your contribution made a significant difference. I want you to know that you are always welcome back in Iwanai. Your presence and assistance were truly valued, and we would be thrilled to have you join us again in the future. As you continue your travels and eventually return to France, I wish you the best of luck with all your endeavors.

This was my first time volunteering in this type of program, and what an experience! I stayed for a month. Nature is amazing, I met a lot of great people (from the company and also other volunteers, as well as summercamp kids), working hours are respected and also flexible... Dan is very open, friendly, funny and easy-going, as well as reliable. It's definitely a good chance to see an internacional Japanese-gaijin environmet, to enjoy a peaceful spot far from big cities and to learn about flexibility and many other life lessons if you're open to them. Thanks again for the good memories!
