I had one of the most memorable experiences as a volunteer at Nice. I not only got to help business owners in Rikuzentakada, but also formed many friendships that I will definitely keep for a long time. I still talk to many of my friends from the camp to this day, and we always talk about awesome memories at the camp. One of these memories included catching our own fish with a large net and eating the fish for dinner afterwards--what a team effort! Also, I loved making a promotional video with my friends to sell soy sauce from the famous Yagisawa Brewery. Despite the long time spent editing the video, we had so much fun filming it.
Because I have volunteered for Nice for 3 years already, I feel like I am part of the community every time I go back to Rikuzentakada. My volunteering experience is one of the experience I am most proud of, so I would highly recommend others to partake in this opportunity as well.
