I live in a traditional Japanese house with my husband and daughter. Our house is on a hill in Matsumoto. The family business is apple farming.
Maybe you can feel the real life of Japan at our house.
We look forward to seeing you.

    Great chance to see real local lifestyle

    Ken and Asuka are young and friendly hosts who provide a fantastic opportunity to experience the real lifestyle of local people in the Japanese countryside. This activity isn't about touristy sightseeing, but about learning how ordinary Japanese people live and interacting with them. The hosts are very hospitable and offer free pick-up/drop-off service. What you do at their home depends on the season: we did mochi pounding and cooking because that's exactly what Japanese people do at the end of December. Overall a very recommended experience if you have a couple of spare hours in Matsumoto city!
