Individuals or groups who would like to experience Peace Culture Village are welcome to visit and participate in community life. PCV accepts over 300 visitors throughout the year.
When you come to PCV, you'll become a member of our community, living and working together with our staff. We will brief you with an introduction to PCV, explanation of community life and campus tour. The day's activities vary depending on the season, and may include farming, cooking, cleaning, facility management, and local or international events and exchanges.
No matter your background or beliefs, we welcome your feedback on PCV and your thoughts on what it means to live peacefully. Our visitors are vital contributors to our ever-evolving community!
As long as we have capacity and you are willing to fully participate in our community, you are welcome to stay for as long as you would like. All meals are eaten together, family style, and we take turns preparing food. Most guests stay on campus in one of our guest rooms. If we are over capacity, we may be able to find you a homestay or alternative lodging. For more information on community life and work flow at PCV, please see our Community Life page.
★ Visitor Fees:
To make PCV as accessible as possible, we charge no fee for lodging. However, if you like what we're doing, please consider becoming a supporter or donating. The amount of your donation to the Village is up to you, but we need at least 300 yen per meal, or 20,000 yen per month just for the cost of food and utilities. Please note that we only accept cash.
★ What to Bring:
□ Work clothes (Long sleeved shirts and long pants)
□ Rain gear
□ A jacket
□ Other toiletries or personal effects
If you decide you bring your own shampoo, conditioner, or soap, please make sure it is organic, without surfactants. The water that we use for bathing goes straight into our field afterwards! Otherwise, we have eco-friendly products here that you can use.
