About the Hosts:
As a couple who has lived abroad, we are delighted to welcome people from all over the world. If you can't speak Japanese don't worry, we can both speak English. We are committed to providing a low-price, secure and safe accommodation because we too have stayed in cheap hotels and experienced the kindness of host families when we were abroad. That is the reason we started this guest house.
Also we're living 100m away from the guest house, so it’s easy for you to reach us in case of an emergency. Should you feel sick for example, we would take you to the nearest hospital.
