“I do commend your company on how things were handled as for myself there were no problems and [you]were quick to offer options and assistance. In particular I dealt with Grant and he was great. Currently I`m residing in Kyoto just relaxing and soaking up the city. It`s quite lovely to ride alongside the riverbank with all the sakura about”– Marcus

“I also want to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for arranging this [internship] for me in Okinawa, I really appreciate your efforts and have had (and am still having) a really enjoyable and life changing time” – Martyn
“I grew a lot as an individual and learned to deal with a lot of new experiences, and I really am grateful for this!” – Samantha
“I always knew I was a strong and independent person however this experience has reinforced that. Not only did I start an internship in a country where the native language is not English, I left my husband of 8 months at home to do it.” -Candice, Australia.
“It allowed me to gain experience working in a Japanese hotel and polish my Japanese. The staff at the restaurant that I was assigned to work in (Shichifuku) has been nothing but helpful and nice to me. I commend them for their patience to me, even though I constantly make mistakes at work and even if my Japanese isn’t that good.”
– Owen, Okinawa Winter 2013-2014.
“At first it was a bit tough, because my Japanese was not very good (I am able to read and write Japanese but I lack speaking and listening skills), but the Japanese staff at the resort were very helpful and nice. During my stay in Hakuba I not only improved my Japanese, but I also learned a lot about Japanese customs and culture.
It was a great opportunity to work in Japan with people from all over the world. I would definitely do it again.”
-Jessica, Winter 2012-2013.
“I will never ever forget this awesome experience and if it’s possible I definitely want to come back next season! Thanks again! Love you guys for making this happen.”
-Enrico, Australia – Winter 2013-2014.
“I really loved working with my co-workers, they were so caring and understanding, and I had the best time ever every time I went out with my friends. I truly feel like I’ve never been loved before as much as I was in Okinawa, and having to leave that paradise especially when one of my co-worker grabbed my arm while crying “please don’t go” at the airport really broke my heart. Thank you so much for showing me such a good place in Japan, I will definitely come again someday!”
-Gaelle, France. Okinawa, Summer 2014.
