Aichi, Japan

About our homestay

I am familiar with foreign cultures through my own homestay experiences and had such a wonderful time meeting new people in different parts of the world. I do believe learning other culture is very significant in our lives and for the world peace . So I am hoping I can help other people who are interested in Japan to have that kind of experience here.

We enjoy sharing our daily life with guests. I can introduce traditional Japanese food to modern Japanese home cuisine to you since cooking is one of my specialties.

We have built our house in 2007, it has backyard with a deck. It is more like an American house than an old Japanese style house but we can certainly give you a chance to visit and see traditional houses during your stay if you like.

We have a guest room that has tatami(straw mat) floor where you sleep with futon.

We are open for visitors all year around.
We welcome short term visitors(from a few days to a week).

We can give you rides or personal tours in Aichi, Kyoto, Gifu, Shizuoka or any other places in the area if we can work around the costs and schedule.

I own some kimonos and know how to put them on, so you are welcome to try that at our house.

If you are interested in Kendo(Japanese martial art), we can take you to our our local dojo's lesson to watch or to join the practice.

For guests who are here to learn Japanese, I will not speak English unless I was asked to so you can improve Japanese more.

Homestay fee includes home meals but excludes away-from-home meals.
Other than that you will be treated as a member of our family while you stay with us. We like to spend as much time as possible with you while you are here, will try to give you the experiences you can only experience at our house!

Please feel free to contact me even if you may not stay at our place, and ask me about our area. I will be glad to help you, give you information about traveling in Japan in general.

Please send us a photo of yourself when you contact us, because we would like to know the face of the person we talk to.
That is why we have our family photo on this profile.

Local information :

Nagoya Central Airport(45min train ride from our home town)
Owari-Ichinomiya station or Kisogawa station

3min walk to the nearest bus stop and it takes 20min to get to the train station Owari-Ichinomiya by bus. We will give you a ride to get around as much as we can. You can also use our bike if you like.

Ichinomiya is located north of Nagoya.
Population of Ichinomiya is 370,000, it has one of the oldest shrines in the region "Masumida Shrine".
Class A river "Kiso River" that runs along the city endows the neighborhood with rich nature and beautiful national parks.

This OWARI region is deeply involved with the famous Samurais of the past (Toyotomi,Tokugawa,Oda), so historians would enjoy this part of Japan.

If you are a shopper looking for latest fashon and trends, I will take you to Nagoya where there is a big shopping area with department stores and trendy little shops.

1.5hrs car ride to go to Kyoto (the most popular spot to visit)
We live very close to Gifu prefecture where there is beautiful nature sill remains, not to mention many ski resorts and hot springs.
Pacific Ocean, mountains, rivers, big cities and many more attractions all in a-day-trip distance.
