Come and Help at our Friendly International Guesthouse in Okinawa!

We are a team of international staff working in a guesthouse in the middle of Naha, Okinawa.
Our place is located in the city, you can walk to Kokusai-dori street which is only 5 minutes away and Naha Bus Terminal is just around the corner. If you feel like some beach time, you will find a few local options but if you are looking for the paradise beach style you can always take a ferry to some of the nearby islands.

Our helpers usually stay around three weeks but dates can be flexible so write to us as soon as you can if you would like to join us.
As a helper, you will be working as housekeeping 3-4 hours a day / 5 days a week in exchange for a bed in one of our dormitories.
You are mostly expected to help with the cleaning, but you will find that a guesthouse can be a nice place to chat with other guests and make new friends! You can take the opportunity to learn some Japanese or practice whatever words you already know, getting to know a bit more about Japanese culture and discovering Okinawa (:

Please note that if you have a Tourist visa you will not be able to join us.
Let us know if you have a Working Holiday Visa, a Working visa or a Student visa since these will allow you to work legally in Japan.

Just in case you were wondering, there is not just one but three Santiago Guesthouses.
Aside from Naha, there is Santiago Guesthouse Hiroshima and Santiago Guesthouse Kyoto.
Volunteers with experience within the Santiago Guesthouse Group will be given priority.

So, if you would like to come to Okinawa during your time around Japan, let us know!
