Hokkaido MSC

HMSC is currently conducting a survey of Japanese residents living in Hokkaido who are interested in supporting foreign residents, especially seniors.  Please click on the News tab above in order to read the details and access the online survey form. We hope that spouses of foreign residents and those Japanese who wish to communicate in Engish with foreigners and each other will participate in the survey.

We work in close partnership with the Sapporo International Communication Plaza and are registered with L-Plaza as HMSC - Hokkaido Multinational Support Community.


This group was originally founded by Michiyo Yoshida as MSC under the umbrella of "Neighbors" in January 2015.  From April 2019 it has been restructured as HMSC with an expanded vision and mission to benefit all those who join or attend presentations as guests.  Your participation and support is welcomed.
