Tokyo's home is normal Japanese home. Before you travel Japan, if you saw Japanese animation as like the Sinosken, the Doraemong, this home is like it. I know many people hope to feel Japanese currency culture. if you want to feel this, I recommend this home. you can take on the tram (Japanese traditional train) and purchase home food cheaper than city's food and can go to city easily. when you planed to use Osaka free pass ticket, Jona helped us to plan. Even she call the company to ask how to use this ticket at the morning. she is very kind and good girl like mother. we felt girl-crush. if you go to Osaka at first, I recommend you go to Tokyo's home.

Yoko takes the time to make you feel at home. She is very interested in getting to know her guests, so if you're looking for a true homestay experience, this is the place for you. Yoko is also very helpful in answering questions, and the room she provides is very clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed eating dinner with Yoko, and I would have stayed longer if I could have.

My stay at Yoko’s place was excellent. She is very kind and easy to communicate. Her English is very good and she made delicious breakfasts for me. There are a couple of good supermarkets in 3-5 min walking distance and Higashiminato train station is a few steps from the house. I strongly recommend Yoko's place for everyone.

Yoko is extremely hospitable and made sure that we had everything we needed. She offered us tea, coffee, and even helped us with dinner arrangements (we bought ingredients from the supermarket and Yoko helped us prepare sukiyaki). There are two rooms upstairs, connected by a shared kitchen and living room space. Her home is right next to the street car station (which connects back to the JR Osaka Loop), which is both convenient but also a bit loud if you sleep in the room near the station. The trip from Osaka Station to her house is about 50 minutes, but well worth the trip; it feels like being home which is really nice while traveling. Yoko is eager to meet new people and is a wonderful host! I would absolutely stay there again.

ホスピタリティに溢れた最高のホストだと思います。 特に、連絡のレスポンスが早いまた正確性が高く助かりました。 夏の暑い時期に利用しましたが、外出時ハウスに戻る連絡をするとクーラーを事前に点けて頂きました。非常に高いホスピタリティに感動しました。 最高の宿泊体験をありがとうございました。

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
