Welcome to Shonanloco – Shonan For Ukraine

We are a group of dedicated volunteers based in the Shonan area of Kanagawa, Japan. 

Our focus is on helping Ukrainian refugees and evacuees to get settled in Japan by supporting them with visa application guidance, information about flights to Japan, and introductions to funding, housing, and education opportunities.

We can work quickly and efficiently because we usually work with one Ukrainian individual or family at a time and we are not restricted by the bureaucracies and rules of larger organizations or government entities. 

Although Shonanloco’s key value comes from our agility and small-scale focus, we also partner with NPOs such as Rotary Clubs and we link Ukrainian refugees with city and prefecture support opportunities and funding entities such as Nippon Zaidan.
