Why is Nagomi Visit a nonprofit?

Our goal is to build friendships not business transactions.

Our volunteer hosts and guests from all around the globe choose to be a part of the unique Nagomi experience because Nagomi Visit is a non-profit organization and not an online marketplace.

We truly want you to meet that friend or family you haven't met.

We keep hospitality genuine by screening all our hosts and keeping the pricing fixed so we know the money you pay goes to cover only very specific costs such as ingredients for the host to make your meal and operational costs for the Nagomi Visit team such as paying the server fees to run the site you are looking at right now.

We have intentionally made it so that the price does not differ depending on the host because we know the host and guest dynamic changes to a commercial one once money changes hands.

We have seen many hosts and guests become like family after their Nagomi Visit and we want to make sure the next person will be you.
