Host Families

Visitors from Kakuda City are housed with Greenfield host families during their stay. Each host home serves as the family for one Japanese guest. While not required, it is preferred that the host families for visiting Japanese students have a middle school and/or high school student to pair with the visiting Japanese student. The host family will provide the Japanese guest with lodging, some meals, and transportation.

In addition, a number of group activities are planned, and the host family is encouraged to participate with their guest in those activities, such as a welcome and farewell party, and a sporting event.
