About us

We travel the world. We connect. We learn. We dance.

Peace Boat has been coordinating global peace and educational voyages since 1983.
What started as a group of university students wanting to engage in real dialogue with neighboring countries, is now one of Japan's biggest NGOs, having organized almost 80 voyages, bringing more than 40,000 participants to more than 120 locations around the world.

An international non-profit and non-governmental organization in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, Peace Boat seeks to promote peace, human rights, equal and sustainable development and respect for the environment through global educational programs, cooperative projects and advocacy activities.

Why are we exciting?

A Peace Boat voyage is a life-changing experience. Utilizing the public spaces and facilities onboard the ship, and harnessing the talents of staff and participants alike, Peace Boat creates a unique environment in which people can live and learn together while undertaking socially responsible travel to some of the most fascinating regions on earth. On average, between 700 and 1,000 participants of various ages and backgrounds join our voyages each time.

Each voyage lasts around 3 months and visits up to 20 countries. Guest educators, all experts in their field, are invited from all over the world to deliver lectures and workshops on topics such as global and peace related issues, journalism, the environment, art, economics, NGOs, volunteerism and much more, helping participants and staff alike to get a deeper understanding of a country's culture, history and current issues before visiting them.

In the ports that Peace Boat visits we arrange exchanges and study tours with our NGO partners and local community groups, enabling participants to experience another culture first hand and learn about the issues affecting different regions of the world directly from the people who live there.

From a homestay at a Palestinian refugee camp in Jordan to reforestation efforts in Eastern Island, our port programmes seek to foster international peace, cooperation and friendship at a grassroots level through people to people exchange.
