Wat je gaat doen

We'll start at Second Harvest to see operations at Japan’s first food bank. Over lunch, I'll explain why Japan has such high amounts of food waste and share background about the nonprofit sector. Then we'll walk through some lesser-known and burakumin (outcast) neighborhoods. At the Sumida River, you'll see where I lived in a cardboard house, an experience that changed my worldview dramatically.

Je verhuurder

Charles

Charles

I'm an unconventional social entrepreneur who’s spent over 25 years in Japan. I founded Second Harvest, Japan's first food bank, which has secured donation agreements from more than 1,000 companies.

Over de organisatie

Second Harvest Japan

Second Harvest Japan is the first incorporated food bank in Japan. Its goal is to create a food safety net so that anyone in need will have access to food. It sources food donations from a wide range of contributors and distributes this food to nonprofits, faith-based groups, welfare agencies, and directly to those in need.

Dit is een ervaring met sociale impact, waarbij 100% van wat je voor deze ervaring betaalt rechtstreeks naar Second Harvest Japan gaat.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We’ll meet in Sanya, a district where many day laborers once lived and where rooming houses exist alongside accommodations for backpackers. Many older Japanese have a negative image of this area, but it is completely safe. We'll also see the Sumida River and Asakusa, an area popular with visitors.
