Hideo, the master of the family, is a self-employed manufacturer of kimono for foreign people. His hobbies are bicycle-ride, playing with dogs, traveling abroad, reading books which compare different cultures, history, sea fishing, making pickles and vegetables, and so on. He speaks English without inconvenience. His wife, Yukako, is an instructor of aerobics, yoga and swimming. Her hobbies are playing with dogs, motorbike-riding, cooking, studying about health. She can speak broken English. She is very cheerful lady.

They live with Gabu (a male basset hound which does things at his own pace and doesn’t obey what they say) and Gon (a male dachshund which has a habit of charging wild deer and boar).

The Message to Guests: I traveled to South Europe and North Africa alone at the age of 20 and traveled around fourteen countries in East Europe with my motorbike by myself at the age of 50. Since I had been helped a lot in foreign countries, now I want to help foreign tourists in return. Please feel free to ask me what you like to enjoy in the countryside, and how to enjoy the inconvenience there. If you like riding motorbikes let’s think about it too.

Visit Great Nature & Enjoy Cooking at a Traditional Thatched House

Enjoy Cooking at a Traditional Thatched House

Japanese dishes are now widely known as very healthy and tasty. We want to invite you to cooking experience in rural community surrounded by beautiful mountains in Kyoto.

What you will be cooking is what Japanese people would normally eat in their home, rather than traditional food. It will be simple and easy, so that you can try cooking after you go back home.

The place we offer you to visit will be a very traditional thatched house owned by a cheerful couple. The house is located right next to their farm, so you can also harvest and cook the freshest local vegetables.
