About the Homestay
Hello there! Sorry I haven't been online for a while.
We are currently 5 friends sharing a house. ( a Singaporean girl, a British boy, a French girl, a Polish girl and me a Japanese girl)
We all have lived in Kyoto for a while and are happy to host you to share stories and explore the city more!
The house is located in a quiet suburb called "Iwakura" surrounded by beautiful nature, which is about 15 mins train ride to the city centre and with easy access to an area called Kurama, with a beautiful shine and hot springs.
Although it is a suburb, there is everything you need close by- bus stops, train stations, convenience stores, a supermarket, an outdoor store, cafes, restaurants, hospitals etc.
Hope you like the area as we absolutely love it!
