We are a family in Kyoto, and we like meeting new people. We have hosted friends from overseas many times, and cooked with them. Although we can't teach you fancy skills, we're happy to share Japanese home-style cooking with you. Our another purpose is to spend good times.

Since I love knowing different culture and people, I studied in a University in the U.S., but it wasn’t enough for me and I traveled to Africa and South America while studying abroad. When I was traveling I noticed that homemade local food is quite different from food at restaurants, including the atmosphere and preparation. Cooking with local people, having conversation while eating—this is what makes the time more valuable. Of course, I got to know many aspects of their lives by talking. Exposing myself to the local life became one of my best memories in the trip. I would like to share the experience—but this time, as a host. When you travel, sometimes you don’t get the opportunities to talk and ask local people questions. So, I’m here to enrich your experience.
