Our last delegation from Lacombe traveled to Japan in July 2019. Many different delegations that have traveled to Rikubetsu have marveled at the generous hospitality and wealth of historical and cultural experiences shared with them.

Be sure to let us know if you would be interested in traveling to Japan too!

Host a Student from Rikubetsu!

ToriiYou could be a host family for a Rikubetsu student visit!

A typical student visit consists of four fast, action-packed days! The Society plans a Saturday welcome luncheon and BBQ supper. Sunday is free for families to entertain their guests while, Monday and Tuesday, the group goes on various tours during the day. In addition, Tuesday has a farewell supper banquet, with students returning home to Japan Wednesday morning.
