The staff are like a family here. Work is chill. Aoshima is beautiful and peaceful. 10/10 Worldpackers experience that I will always remember and miss so much. Thanks Toshi :)

Great fun, was not expecting to stay as long as I did but was having so much fun. A couple hours light work a day is a good trade off 🫶

I had a wonderful time in Aoshima. The work was fun and the team great. Besides the agreed hours of work we spend a lot of the time surfing and exploring the area (there's so much to see). Can highly recommend and would love to go back.

This was absolutely amazing! The place is great and the work is fair. The hosts, Toshi and Foo, are very nice. I spent my days surfing and spending time with other volunteers, practicing my Japanese and traveling around Kyushu. I absolutely loved it ♥️😍

My stay in Aoshima was awesome, the work was fair and I spent the rest of most my days using the bikes and surfboards available, and spending quality time with the people I stayed with. I really hope to come back one day! Thank you 😊😊
