My stay with with Mizushima family was nothing short homely and lively. With a key I was able to adventure to my hearts content. On other days I could rest at home and socialize with the entire family. I was also happy to meet their friends and family and greatly enjoyed camping and cooking out with them. Everyone English was really good and I had plenty of opportunities to use & practice my Japanese and ask questions regarding the language and culture. Also greatly enjoy ed watching movie and TV in both languages to gain insight on a perspective that is the opposite of mine. I am grateful that we could make so many great memories together.
I hope to visit everyone again when I visit Japan in the future.
It was hard to leave, because I enjoyed the stay with them so much.
If you love children and dogs, this is the place to stay.
I really enjoyed my stay at this Family's House! It is a really lovely and forthcoming Family!
You can ask them any Questions you have and they try to awnser it to the best of their Knowledge.
They are very good at English, even the Kids can Speak and understand English.
If you dont mind the presents of young Kids its the perfect Place for a Homestay, though if you want to visit Tokyo it may not be the best Place to stay, due to the Time it takes to get to Tokyo. It will take about 60 - 70 Minutes one way.
They were great! The meals were delicious. They have 2 boys who are fun to play with. The location is peaceful and there are lots of poeple you can talk to there. If you come to Japan and want to be in a nice peaceful place not too far from Tokyo, I highly recommend staying at Yukio and Megumi`s house. You will learn a lot there and have a great experience.
Really friendly and helpful family with a nice home. I would reccommend to anyone interested in making the most of a homestay.
Fantastic family, felt like another home while I was there. The meals that Megumi cooks are delicious and varied. This is a very good family to stay with for first time ventures to Japan as they speak English well and are happy to help with requests to the best of their ability. I can't recommend staying with them enough.
This guest awarded the host 4.7 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Yukio and Megumi are kind and driven persons. They helped me a lot in a lot of things during my homestay. We spent a nice time together and I improved my Japanese a lot. Chiba is a nice a town, a little far from Tokyo but it's well connected by train stations.
In the end, any student or tourist who's willing to learn or improve Japanese, to visit Japan and to experience a fine homestay should come to Yukio and Megumi's house.
