or Participate in Carrying a Mikoshi


Volunteering At Sakurakai, we welcome volunteers with or without experience. We hope to provide a place to build your skills while having fun operating events and expanding your community. Your task will be based on the four categories:

・ Marketing (long-term only)
・ Operation Assistant (long-term only)
・ Promotions
・ Event Staff

You may be assigned to one or more roles, or switch midway depending on your ability and interest. You may also have the opportunity to become a Volunteer Manager. Please mention it in your registration form if you are interested.

The [long-term] volunteer positions are 1 year long (February – December), and you may choose to extend it at the end of each year.
The [short-term] volunteers will support a specific event. If you are interested in carrying Mikoshi, please see the section below “Participate in our Mikoshi events"
