Next year the Asian Winter Games will be held in Sapporo and Obihiro. It's like the Winter Olympics - but only for Asian athletes. Thousands of foreigners will be Hokkaido and volunteers are needed.
Really. YOU. Yes, your English is good enough. I am sure.
All levels of English are needed - people for subway stations, information counters, shuttle buses, hotel support - right up to interpreter level for athletes and media.
1,800 foreign language volunteers are needed - English, Chinese, Korean etc and a further 3,000 Japanese Only volunteers too.
I am thinking about it. I would like to volunteer. But, February is a busy time for my family. My partner is a ski instructor and he is always busy away working at ski resorts. I have to look after his mother and our two cats alone. It is hard to be away from home. But I will check the details of volunteers and maybe apply.
Meanwhile - listen very carefully to this promotion video...who is it? A familiar British voice?
YOU TOO! Yes!!! YOU!
