Let’s Go Home!

イノウ (pronounced eno) means let’s go home! in the local dialect. INOW Program invites you to experience the feel of home in the heart of the famous Zero Waste Village of Japan.


Welcome to Kamikatsu

Nestled amongst the cedar forested mountains of Shikoku Island is a tiny village with a big reputation. Known for being the first village in Japan to make a declaration for Zero Waste, and listed as one of Japan’s 100 Most Beautiful Villages, there is something undeniably special about this place.


INOW Program

The concept of INOW is simple: come experience Kamikatsu as a local.
INOW is your home in Kamikatsu.


INOW Program

The INOW program is a homestay program with the idea that we’re not just inviting people to come to Kamikatsu as tourists but to actually experience what life is like for a local resident.

By living side by side with locals for an extended period of time, we hope you’ll be inspired to think about sustainability in a different way.
