Hi(^_^)I'm yoko. Everyone calls me Jonathan.
I was born and raised near Ginkaku temple in Kyoto.
But I live in Sakai longer now.
My life always has travels and music (These are my hobby and work)
The travel is life itself and I'm dreaming to travel all over the world.
I plan travel and go there with my friends several times a year.
Writting the travel reports is also my hobby.
I met many people who are kind for me on my travels.
Those memories are my treasure.
And this time I want to give back for you.
From such a feeling I came up with an experience type Homestay.
I want to plan local deep sightseeing and experiences.
Let's exchange informathion about travels.
I hope I can have more and more friends all over the world through
