My Japan Diaries

Here you can find all my experiences and adventures (click the titles to find the post) from my 3 weeks 2 days spent in Kyoto, Japan, through the volunteer workaway program. I was volunteering with “The Japan Cat Network” – an animal rescue and welfare organisation. I spent most of the time working across a nursery, kindergarten and elementary school between Enmachi and Hanazono Station. It was a long desired experience, and although I had my anxieties, the experience was incredible.
