This homestay was really the best, I'd ever had! The whole family is very open, friendly and every time helpful. If you are an open minded person witch wanna learn some japanese language or somthing of the japanese culture, you are on the right homestay.
We thank the family so much for this pleasure journey!
Haruna a vraiment été une charmante hôtesse, prévenante et attentionnée. Entre les garderies des enfants , son travail et homestay, elle n'a guère de répit. Yasu son mari nous a conduit plusieurs fois vers la gare . La maison est très propre et silencieuse. Petits déjeuners bien adaptés aux hôtes. Deux jeunes enfants coquins mais polis.
La maison n'est pas difficile à trouver si vous suivez les consignes du courriel de Haruna. Comptez 5 minutes de marche puis 15 minutes de train pour rejoindre le centre ville.

We ended our travels around Japan staying with Haruna and her family for 3 nights and it was great! The boys, Hakuto and Aoba, are playful, smart and sweet - it was delightful to see them briefly in the mornings and evenings. The house is conveniently between Osaka and Kyoto and also hosts some amazing temples and shrines without the hoards of tourists. The highlight for us was being able to stay in a Japanese home but what made it extra special was the sincere kindness and warmth with which the family welcomed us. We would go back in a heartbeat!
Staying with Haruna and her wonderful family was definitely a highlight of our travels to Japan. My partner is a classic Mini enthusiast and Haruna took us to a garage close by where they had a load of Minis, we also went to a local temple which was, by far, our favourite temple visit of the whole trip, it was beautiful, secluded and peaceful. Haruna’s sons were great fun and wanted to play games from the minute we walked in. Our room was lovely and comfortable and breakfast was more than what we could have asked for. Although we were happy to catch the bus to the station in the morning’s Hauna always dropped us off and suggested detours to other sights. In a nutshell, we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend staying here.
Kyoto is a beautiful city, who can doubt it? But with the welcome we've had, this city became amazing. Words fail to explain our satisfaction. We shared so many memorable moments that it was with deep regret we've had to leave. The whole family welcomed us with such warmth and such attention. (What a joy to share the happiness and the impish curiosity of two awesome children! We kiss you, beloved kids!) Haruna's family helped us and guided us so kindly: they spent lots of time with us to discuss, to learn us about Japanese customs and life, to visit typical peacefull places, and they were constantly listening to our desires. For us, they aren't a simple welcoming family, but now really friends. And we are always in touch! (We look forward to coming to see you all again.)
For those who would like to know about Japan, not just the amazing land of cherry blossoms, glowing maples, bonsai trees, temples and shrines, but Japan which shakes your heart to the point of leaving a little of yourself, stay a while at Nagaoka in Haruna's family: green tea here has imperishable taste of attachment.
Haruna and her family are my favorite! So nice and welcoming. Very helpful with plans and the Japanese language, which I knew practically none of. I plan on returning very soon! :)
It was my first experience with a family, and I can only say that I spend few days feeling like home, better than home ; Haruna and her family have been more than nice to me, so caring, so nice ! They take time for me, they helped me a lot, and I can only say "thank you from the heart", I miss you already... I have so nice memories with you, and we will stay in touch for sure ! If you are planning to stay with this family, please be respectful as they will be with you for sure ! They deserve it :-)
Was a very very pleasant stay with Haruna for the there nights there. Even a trip to the station for picking us was no problem. Bedroom and house more than OK, we felt us at home! See us next time again, or come over to Holland!
we stayed 5 nights in Haruna's family and we spent a very great time; Haruna was very nice and accomodating. She bring us to the station, to visit a local temple. Every morning, we had the breakfast prepared and lot of attention: gifts, food...
Her 2 sons are very funny and friendly and wanted to show us a lot of things!
We will recommand Haruna and her nice family!
Thank's for all Haruna, Aoba, Hakuto and Yasuyuki for your welcome and see you in France maybe!!
