About Us

Let’s Homestay was established in 1994 to provide Japanese youth an opportunity to experience Kiwi-Culture by way of homestay. Our office is located in Tauranga, New Zealand.

Through the Let’s Homestay home hosted and educational programs, hundreds of students and young adults come to Tauranga to experience what we have.

Our main market is Japan and we specialise in custom made group programs for junior and high school students. We have strong working relationships with many high profile schools in our area and throughout New Zealand.

We are agents for many public school and private language schools and offer placements and registrations for short and long term students wishing to study abroad.

Let’s Homestay also has an outbound program with a yearly homestay program in Japan with the Labo International Exchange Foundation.
