We are Japanese couple, used to live in Nagoya where is the third biggest city in Japan. Husband, Toru, used to work for a travel agency for Toyota, Yuki, me, also used to work for an international travel agency, study and work for organic, macrobiotic cafes and a bakery afterward. Since Toru originally loved fishing, farming and making crafts with woods so much, we were fascinated with this beautiful nature island Yakushima and decided to move, leaving city life behind in 2009. We both love meeting people and getting to know each other that is one of the big reasons why we started hosting. It is such a great pleasure to welcome our guests from all over the world. It was so much fun just talking, getting to know different cultures that I really knew nothing about. I can learn so much from our guests, and we also can help their vacation plan, introduce Japanese cultures, life styles or often solve their mysteries about Japan. I've met so many wonderful people who had been willing to offer me a help every time I traveled foreign countries so I hope I could do the same to the travelers coming to Yakushima and be their friend! Yuki loves cooking ( the most ) very much in a healthy way, designing and making stained glass, drawing, listening to music, playing piano, walking, yoga, watching foreign films and reading books. My favorite is 'The Little Prince' by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, but I read almost anything. My motto is 'Ichigoichie' in Japanese, means ’treasure every encounter with others because you never know if you'll meet a person just once in your lifetime.' Thanks to airbnb, I've already met lots of beautiful people I will never forget and always smiling cheerfully at me in my heart, or writes me for years giving me their news such as their vacances, marrige or showing baby photos, I really adore every single of them. Yuki is no good at insects and worms which always frightens me when I see them in our gardens or orchards! But organic fresh vegetables and fruits are very tasty and flavorful, so I figure it is totally worth screaming for them! Now I am studying French, Spanish & Italy, but veeerrrry slowly. Some other languages just for greetings! Hope I can meet more and more guests in the future. Thank you very much for reading all!!

We used to work for travel agency in a big city, so we're pretty good at organizing travels and happy to help or share with any information required. Guests are welcome to talk with Yuki if they want to know more about not only Yakushima but Japan, Japanese culture, Japanese cooking (that's my field) or even matcha tasting whenever Yuki is available. If you prefer privacy, that is totally fine too.
