MIFA selects 10 host families for the students who will come from Hofu. The host family is an important part of this exchange, because they can share with the student the culture of our country and also get to learn of the Japanese culture through the student. The host family will have the student for about 10 days. Monday through Thursday, classes and activities will be set for the students and the host family will need to drop off and pickup from about 9:00 am to 4:30/5:00 (depending on the activity of the day). We do have other members to help in case there is a conflict in times. Friday, Saturday and Sunday is with the host families. It is a truly rewarding experience for both the families and the students. If you would like more information on possibly becoming a host family, please complete the application.
