About the event
Are you living in Japan and struggling to fit in and understand Japanese culture? Do you miss having a family close-by to help you out and support you? Then you should check out the Geo Lifestyle!
Living the Geo Lifestyle - a project by Ishikawa Dandelion
This project, focused within the Hakusan Tedorigawa Geopark, is a neighborhood project that aims to build connections between Japanese and foreign residents. Experience the real Japanese way of life, build a personal support system, and help create a more open and understanding society.
During this program, you can have the opportunity to be part of a Japanese family for a day. Each time we will visit a family, and spend a few hours with them preparing food together, learning their cooking style, enjoying meals together, helping them with household tasks, learning from their skills, listening to their stories of old, talking with them, learning local phrases, and making friends.
Let's break the barrier between Japanese and Foreigners, show everyone our passion for Japan, and share our community spirit. Through this project we hope to create opportunities for struggling foreigners to fit into Japanese society, but also opportunities for Japanese to make friends and receive community support. Let's help each other out and create a peaceful society for all.
