In early January, I have been a volunteer staying with my host Mr Katayama in Okayama for nearly a week. I have a wonderful time here and also a special experience.

We have gone to Shiraishi Island for a one night stay in the international villa. The villa is well furnished and with spectacular view. We have also visited the beach and some of the temples on the island. Not only can we see different temples when we hike, we can also see the beautiful scenery. This short stay in Shiraishi Island enables me to know more about the Japanese culture and also meet a lot of nice local people.


We have also spent some time in the COINN office. We help with little work and have cultural exchange with some nice Japanese people. It is a pleasure to meet and talk with them.


All in all, it is a memorable experience to stay here in okayama and fun to be a volunteer.
