Organized together with Shizentaiken Ozuchi Mura since 2013, founded by local people to
keep the original landscape. There were 140 inhabitants with 20 houses in 1916, but now
only 2 people live there! Still 10 houses remained and the area was designated as Nation's
Preservation District for Groups of Historic Buildings. We will try to improve the situation of
the village by young voluntary power. Since 2016, Ozuchi village and NICE have started
'Weekend Workcamp', and more than 400 people do volunteering here per year and they
love this village! Local host hope to pass this village down the next generations!
Main work is organizing and preparing for English kids camp. For example, playing
international games, cooking international meals and speaking with children. From 6 to 18
years old children/students enjoy international days in the beautiful nature. Volunteer
prepare though online for this program before coming here. We possibly also support
agriculture and do some other work for the community.
Best practice to revive depopulated areas in each country and their networking. Bring
some info! Volunteers get knowledge about actions for developing local village.
Renovated house (traditional house!). Simple shower room. Clean toilet. Winter Sleeping
