Come see us in Inawashiro!

JCN Volunteer Rai-Lee made a fun video, highlighting her experience at the JCN Inawashiro shelter as well as sightseeing around beautiful Inawashiro and Fukushima.

Inawashiro is a stunning place to enjoy nature. Caring for some sweet rescued animals, while meeting other animal people from around the world makes the experience even better! There is currently an opening for an onsite team manager. We’re looking for a very special person who is responsible, flexible, organized, and caring. A people person who loves animals. Please contact [email protected] for more details. Happiness required!
