What is Sharing Caring culture?


Sharing Caring Culture is a private organization established in February 2014. Through cultural activities, we aim to help non-Japanese residents build relationships with Japanese residents.

Local government and Nonprofit Organizations (NPO) currently provide services for non-Japanese residents ranging from assistance with daily life in different languages to offering Japanese language courses.


However, there are all sorts of non-Japanese residents. We believe the kind of support a resident alien needs depends on his or her situation and the needs of non-Japanese change over time.


Some of these long-term residents are able to get by but no longer feel satisfied because they can’t contribute to their community.


We realized we should set up an opportunity for people from other countries who want to contribute their knowledge and skills to their community and serve and connect with people.


Sharing Caring Culture offers 

①English playgroup sessions

②Multi-cultural class

③Publishing a childcare reference booklet "OYACO" in English
