I love meeting new people and getting to know each other that is one of a big reason why we are running pension.
I've seen so many nice people who had been willing to help me when I traveled foreign countries and I hope I could do the same to the travelers coming to Yakushima and be their friend!
I also love cooking ( the most ), making stained glass,drawing, music, playing piano, walking, watching foreign movies and reading.
My favorite is 'The Little Prince' by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
My guests are just like this story, they make their countries or the things they told very special to me after I got to know them, it is really fun. Many things remind me of each of them even years later that makes my heart warm.
My favorite movie is 'Amelie Poulain' French film, seen that more than 10 times!
I used to live some places in Aichi, Australia for a while, Kobe, and now live in Yakushima.
My husband loves farming, fishing and making crafts.
My motto is 'Ichigoichie' in Japanese, means ’treasure every encounter with others because you never know if you'll meet a person just once in your lifetime.' Thanks to airbnb, I've met lots of people I will never forget and always smiling cheerfully at me in my heart.
I am no good at insects, worms and bees which never fail to make me scream when I see them in vegetables from our gardens!
But organic fresh vegetables and fruits are very tasty, worth screaming for worms!
Now I am struggling with French & Italy.
