【about airbnb】
With the recent technology of our every day life, this world seems to be getting smaller. Who could have imaged that the local area such like my family place in Japan can be international place from all over the world. One Parisian is speaking to her family by Skype whereas Japanese host is taking to Californian who is sitting next each other.
we all sit and enjoy eating dinner together with the same table.

This kind of situation had never imagined for 10 years ago. This is not just a regular sight seeing, but all new experiences of cultural exchange which we never had. It is getting a exciting world and new era of beginnings.

Greetings in Japanese are as follows.

Our family of three was born and raised in the Eina and Nakatsugawa region. 

Rather than sports, it seems to be more suitable for people who have been on the roads from old Japan.  On the front side, you may have the impression that people are serious about being sincere because they don't drink vegetables or drinks. 
 Aside from the fact, it's nerd, and our bougainvillea may be silly, male, and perhaps in the area. 

My husband is a slightly unusual family who studied magical things and extraordinary phenomenon, but his desire to always capture the nature of his nature.  

My wife has a lot of food all over the world, but how does it work? Our dining table is always under the name of vegetarian cooking research, so when you don't show up for a feast, it's an experiment!?It looks like you're in the middle of nowhere.

Due to the different direction of the world that my parents are seeing, I can only say that my child is taking over both personalities.

As a host, I have lived in a local area and have had a certain level of experience. I hope that I can help you discover Japan's local area by comparing, the sexuality of the area, the public perception and the sightseeing, as well as the beauty of the local area, the beauty of being a Japanese person, and other countries.  

Of course, we don't want to save money, so we're being courteous.
 We hope you'll be able to help make your trip memorable as a host.
