Where we Have Vlunteered

This map shows areas where we have had sustained regular volunteer visits. This does not necessarily mean the visits are still running now!

Getting in touch with volunteers in your area

We have just started asking local groups to set up a Facebook page for their visit named after the prefecture and/or town and ‘Smile Kids Japan’, for example ‘Osaka City Smile Kids Japan’. This is a new initiative and many groups are yet to do this, however as it grows it will allow you to search your area and directly get in touch with your local group. Usually there will be many institutions in the area you live, especially if it is a city. For this reason we tend to encourage people to set up new groups and visits rather than joining existing groups. You can check out how to set up a volunteer group here
