Are you a big animal lover?
You don't mind if animals jump on your bed?
Do you miss your cat or dog?
Do you want to feel as a member of our family?
If so, you won't regret to stay at my place.
My place is located in East Ward and it's in the quiet suburb. (Not in downtown!!)
You can feel like a local person who lives in this area.
I am living with my son(9 yrs) and super friendly dog and annoying 2 cats in a small but cozy house.
(It's not a farm, though!)
Check in time is after 5:00 PM, but please let me know at what time you will check in, because the room have to be ready in the morning before I go to work if you check in before I come home on that day (I sometimes need to go pick up my son at school or classes.)
We are a super friendly family and have enjoyed hosting people from around the world since the summer of 2009. We always have a great fun with our guests and friends. We will treat you as one of our family.
I teach English in our living/dining room where you may see my students around from time to time.
Please let me know your gender(male or female) when you book my guestroom. Because I have had some mistakes about that. If you don't have your pictures on your profile, I will ask you. :) Because if there is no pictures on your profile, I feel like I'm talking with a ghost. :D
If you want to explore the center city area called Tenjin, the public bus will take you there very conveniently from just outside my doorsteps.
If you prefer stay at a Japanese homey place as one of a family, our place is it.
Your room is private but bathroom and toilet are shared with my family and other guests. Dining room/kitchen is an open space, so you can have free drinks(water, tea, coffee...) but please clean up after you use it. Dining room is also my lesson place, so you can use it when it is not occupied.
I live in this house, so you will see my everyday life. I teach English at my place after my daytime work on weekdays. I have lessons on weekends, too.
Interaction with guests
If you like natures, I can take you to the beach or mountains when I have free time. There is a nice hiking place near my place also.
Other things to note
If you will complain about smell of my pets, please stay somewhere else. I live with animals. I don't give them bath so often because they hate it. And when cats poo, it smells badly, of course.
Check in 5pm (early check in will be charged 1000yen)
Check out 10am
Smoking and eating are not allowed in your bedroom.
You can smoke outside the house and eat in our dining room.
Please don't speak and play music loudly at night.
Open the windows and doors for fresh air sometimes while you are not using the room.
Please keep clean yourself and where you use.(toilet/shower room/kitchen)
Recycles---- plastic bottles, cans, glass bottles.
I was born and grew up in Fukuoka, Japan. I will give you much more useful info of our area than Lonely Planet. ;)
I have hosted over 1000 people since 2009 and have enjoyed sharing a lot of stories/laugh/ideas/cultures/languages...and many many more with my guests.
I'm a big animal lover and enjoy learning new things.
I feel happy when I can make someone happy.
I am a single mother of two sons. My older son lives apart from us because of his univ.
