Young People's Home Stay
We at Shinagawa-ku International Friendship Association (SIFA) introduce students from Portland, Maine in the U.S., Geneva in Switzerland and Auckland in New Zealand to host families in Shinagawa Ward. We send students to host families in these three cities every other year. (*We finished sending students to Auckland in 2010.)

Students who live in Shinagawa Ward as young as second year in junior high school and as old as third year in high school are the prospective students we send to host families in these cities. They study the culture and lifestyle of the countries where they stay; deepen mutual understanding; and learn more about the world we live in for the purpose of expanding cultural exchange in the common citizenry.

The ages of the students from the three cities range from 13 to 18, and whether they are able to enjoy staying in Japan or not all depends on how their host families treat them. Since all students staying with their host families in Shinagawa Ward show very strong interest in Japanese culture and lifestyle, they really look forward to having meaningful and productive experiences during their stay with their host families.

We would truly like you serve as a host family and accept students for the sake of their further development of international exchange in Shinagawa Ward; expansion of the ring of exchange in the common citizenry; and above all, the realization of the "Dream and Challenge" of the students. Your cooperation is essential.
