Peace Camp: Renovation and Appropriate Technology

At Peace Camp, we work together to learn peace in a concrete, hands-on way. We hold weekend Peace Camps a few times a year, each with a specific theme and teacher.

This weekend will revolve around renovating homes using natural, eco-friendly methods and materials materials, and will be led by Keizo Ishioka, a professional carpenter. This Peace Camp will be conducted entirely in Japanese. If you are interested in DIY projects, eco-friendly living, carpentry, or life in the Japanese countryside, please join us!

This includes accommodation, meals, and volunteer insurance fees. Please note that we only accept cash. Please bring your payment on the first day of Peace Camp.


Peace Campers will live with Peace Culture Village staff on PCV campus.
