3 Cautions

 

・Cannot be used for stays that already include special deals offering cashbacks via Quo Cards or gift vouchers

・The total price of the stay can include the charge for meals/souvenirs purchased from the same facility, as long as those extra charges are paid for together with the nightly rate upon checkout.

・Maximum amount of cashback/discount for a stay is 15,000 yen per person (5,000 yen x 3 nights). ※A maximum of 3 consecutive nights at the one facility

・For families/groups that include children who are subject to children’s (reduced) nightly rates, the total bill will be divided by the number of guests and the discount will be available if the nightly stay for one guest is 6,000 yen or higher (before tax) .  This excludes babies/infants for whom a nightly stay rate is not charged.

Become a Volunteer

 

The International Relations Society has many opportunities for Japanese and non-Japanese residents to use their skills to help others.

Multicultural Instructors (Tabunka Koshi)

Do you know how to cook dishes from your native land? Can you teach English or another foreign language? Are you able to visit local schools and talk about the way of life where you grew up? If so, please register as a Multicultural Instructor. We take requests from schools, community centers and other public organizations, and then intro-duce them to our registered Instructors.

Language Assistants (Bogoshiensha)

If you speak and read Japanese as well as English or any other foreign language, this is your chance to help fellow foreign residents by interpreting for them in situations faced in everyday life in Japan. We dispatch Language Assistants to interpret at schools for foreign parents at meetings with teachers, at health check ups, and when doing business at other public offices.
