Household Articles Lending Service

Thanks to the help and cooperation of city residents, who kindly donate items in good condition that they no longer need, we are able to lend household articles to foreign students living in Tokushima. It is difficult for foreign students starting a new life here to get everything they need in a short time, and this project began as a way to help them out when they first arrive.

Consultation Service

TIA offers counseling services to help foreigners in Tokushima live pleasantly and comfortably. We help out with questions or everyday problems such as "I've received a notice from a public office, but I don't understand what it says", "I feel uneasy about going to the hospital because of language problems or differences in customs", "I don't know how to separate the trash and put it out in my local area". No issue is considered to trivial to deal with. All information is kept strictly confidential. Please feel free to contact TIA office if you need any assistance.

Anything can be put up: car for sale/wanted or items for sale notices, flyers for language course or seminars, tutor wanted requests, and more.
