Short-Term Homestay


The Institute for International Collaboration offers you the chance to live with a Japanese family and learn more about the culture, customs and lifestyle in Japan.  If you want to stay in a typical Japanese home and spend time with a Japanese family, you may apply for a home-stay program at the Division of International Exchange. Submit your application at least 2 months prior to the date you wish to begin your home-stay.


The program is for a maximum of 6 days and 5 nights and is available in a range of locations across Hokkaido. There is no cost, but you must cover transportation costs to and from the home-stay yourself.

 

Home-stays are available at the following locations:

Sapporo, Okhotsk area (KitamiMombetsuBihoroShari), Tokachi areaAsahikawaTakikawaTomakomaiMuroranToyouraWassamu.


Applications are available at the Institute for International Collaboration, Support Desk, or you may download it here as an Excel file or PDF. You will also need to submit a picture for identification purposes.


Please note that once you apply for a home-stay, it is difficult to cancel. So please consider your application choices and dates very carefully. Also please note that the “Item Confirmation” form needs to be filled out at the IIC.
