Volunteer Work

When disasters occur, volunteers gather immediately. Universities are full of volunteer groups. Foreigners are surprised by Japanese volunteer activities such as senior citizens teaching skills they have learned for free and people striving to pick up trash in the streets. Japan, which helps others for free in secret, and the West, which raises funds with extravagant parties. Why are they so different? We hotly debate the differences between Japan and the world in volunteering!

Our foreign guests checked out a variety of Japanese volunteer activities.
We went to see an American volunteer event.
Our foreign guest participated in a volunteer activity where picking up trash is enjoyed as a competitive sport.
