About the local hosting organizationSince 2014, this workcamp has been organized with the local group for taking care of local river called "Shinmachi river." They have been cleaning river for more than 20 years and dirty river became clean, so now they are organizing local tour boat services on Shinmachi river to let local people enjoy river. During this workcamp, Tokushima prefecture has one of the most popular festivals called “Awa Odori festival” that more than 1,000,000 visitors come from all over japan (even abroad!). The visitors also enjoy the boats, that needs a lot of help to organize!
