Hands On Tokyo

Hands On Tokyo collaborates with local organizations to encourage senior citizens, revitalize playgrounds, deliver food to the hungry, support people with visual impairment, inspire children in children’s homes, and more.

Hands On Tokyo was founded in December 2006 with a working Board of Directors comprising both Japanese and foreign nationals who are committed to making volunteer activities more accessible and committed to accelerating the growth of volunteerism in the Tokyo area.

One quality that is unique to Hands On Tokyo is our passion to becoming the catalyst that will help spread volunteerism in Japan. Overcoming language barriers, we developed a bilingual volunteer clearinghouse so that we can work together for a common purpose. While each volunteer brings different philosophies or perceptions on volunteerism, one common belief we all have is that everybody has something to contribute to society.
