About the Homestay
We are in the process of making a self-sustainable, creative way of living in countryside in Japan.
We are based in Southwest Japan, Ehime prefecture.
Our goal is to enjoy life through making our own food, garments which are as well as renovating houses while we play music and dance.
You will have an unique experience of living in a countryside, in a 80-year old house.
A half of the cost of your stay will go to the renovation fund for the project.
Thank you for supporting us and becoming a part of our project.
We really look forward meeting you in the house!
It is an old house, and we keep the old toilette system which is outside.
About breakfast, we provide a simple one with rice and miso soup.
Let me know before you come here about food allergies you have.
