There are regular events such as volunteer guide at Sendai Tanabata Festival, dispatching instructors to a training center of the Correction Bureau, visit to a Japanese Sake brewery, friendship party with the Friendship Families and students from abroad whereby communication with foreigners is promoted.
We have an increasing number of inquiries from those
who are interested in communication with foreigners or who have just returned
to Japan after studying abroad, or who are studying English and looking
for chances to use the skill.
The activities are done by the members purely on voluntary basis, so you just find an opportunity that well suit your conditions like language level, time zone available, etc.
