Sharing Caring Culture ( hereinafter referred to as SCC ) is a private organization founded in 2014 and incorporated in 2019 by a group of members with diverse ethnic backgrounds living in Japan. We felt that by empowering international people to take on the challenges of life overseas, we could build a platform where they could enjoy life in Japan. It is with this idea that we began our activities towards creating a place where international families could share their efforts and energy with others.

Our aim is for culturally diverse people to work together towards making a better society in which international people and the Japanese can support one another alike, instead of the relationship weighted in one direction. To that end, we organize intercultural activities that do not entirely rely on verbal communication, but that include art, cooking, and dance, where all the residents of any nationality can connect.

We know that the Japanese language is a big challenge for many international people living in Japan. However, even for people who are not confident with Japanese but can use English, they have their home-country culture and activities and have the potential to share these with others.

We provide opportunities for people from other countries who want to contribute their knowledge, experience, and skills, regardless of their Japanese ability.
