Koda and Kero hosted us at their property. In anticipation of the upcoming Typhoon "Talim", they had bought some extra supplies (just in case). We did not know what to expect from the area, but they walked us through the options including a nice hike on the Nakasendo road (highly recommended) and a visit to Iwamura. From the moment of pickup at Ena station, to the moment of departure, it has been a bliss. Thank you Koda an Kero for your hospitality and support!

The stay was an unforgettable experience. We learned a lot about Japanese culture. The couple is very friendly and lovely. Koda arranged a very nice day trip for us and joined us for dinner at restaurants. We have only very happy memories from the stay and would recommend it for everyone looking for an experience more than just a hotel.

We had such a lovely stay here, the building is amazing and set in a very beautiful and green area of Japan. Koda and Kero were absolutely lovely hosts and kindly picked us up and dropped us off at the station and our bus stop. We really appreciated their help and we highly recommend staying here if you have a chance, it is so much fun! The room was extremely well equipped and they even prepared gluten free snacks for us, such a wonderful surprise.

This place is by far the best place that I have ever stayed at in terms of AirBnB! It is conveniently placed 15min walk away from Ena station in a gorgeous country side town. The room itself is extremely spacious with great facilities. But what makes this place so special are the hosts! Koda and Kero made my partner and I feel so welcomed, it felt as though we were visiting relatives. They are truly amazing people who go out of their way to make your stay as amazing as possible! Koda goes beyond his responsibilities as a host and makes for an amazing tour guid and don't get me started on how amazing Kero's cooking is! My partner and I could easily rate it as one of our most enjoyable dining experiences in Japan! We are truly grateful of having the pleasure of staying here! 5 stars!

With the recent technology of our every day life, this world seems to be getting smaller.

One Parisian is speaking to her family by whereas Japanese host is taking to Californian who is sitting next each other.
we all sit and enjoy eating dinner together with the same table.

This kind of situation had never imagined for 10 years ago. This is not just a regular sight seeing, but all new experiences of cultural exchange which we never had. It is getting a exciting world and new era of beginnings.



スポーツというより、自分と向き合う日本古来からの道とつくものの方が性に合っているようです。 表向きは、菜食でお酒も飲まない家庭なので真面目で誠実に努める人達という印象を持たれるかもしれません。


妻は、世界中に食べ物は色々あるけれど、どうなっているの? という思いが絶えずあるため、 我が家の食卓は、いつも菜食での料理研究の道という名の下にて、お客様にご馳走を振る舞わない時は、実験!?爆走中の模様です。


ホスト役として、地元に住む人間として、また、ある程度の経験も積んで来た年となり、 他の地域との比較、この地域性はもとより、一般の見識、見聞をお伝えする事と同時に、少し違う角度からみた場合の日本の地方の良さ、日本人としての良さ、他の国の方ならば、 日本とそれぞれの自国の再発見をする旅のお手伝いが出来ましたら幸いです。
