Great conversation with Okasan, though she doesn't speak English and we don't speak Chinese. Good to understand how's Kobe lifestyle. Very kind of both Okasan & Odorsan, and interestingly to know actually it's a big family. In addition, the house is very convenient to go to the nearby restaurants & stations. Really enjoy our stay. It's really a good chance to live with locals.

A really good place to live in Kobe. The host doesn't speak too much English but she is really willing to help with everything, she will use apps to translate and communicate with you. She cook really nice breakfast, and it's free! The only thing I worried is the distance from the subway station, especially with big luggages. But the dad drove me to the station when I left, which saved me lots of time and energy, I really appreciated it. A lovely family to stay with!!!

If you're in Kobe, stay here! Oka-San was the sweetest, most helpful lady. Her breakfasts in the morning were wonderful! The house is quite large and spacious, with nice rooms that have AC and TVs. Everything was perfect!! Thank you :D

Nice place, nice host- the mum is a lovely woman! But it is a little far from the center and for that quite expensive.

Oka-san was a perfect host. She gave us a very warm welcome and a tasty breakfast the next morning. Everything in the house was very clean and tidy and oka-san was a lovely lady, communicating with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) translate went surprisingly easy! We definately would recommend this accomodation to other airbnb guests! Gerard and Rosanne

As other comments, okasan was a very lovely person and we were very comfortable during our stay. It was also a good experience in a common Japanese house. We recommend this place to all people.

Hello! I'm Kaori. I like traveling and eating good food, spending time with family, friends. I enjoy meeting new people :-)

I've started Airbnb hosting with my family. The host-mother is my mother in law. She is called "Oka-san" that means "mother" in Japanese. She is a lovely lady and has real hospitality.

Actually I'm away from home for my husband's job. It is so sad that I cannot meet our guests actually. However I will do my best to make our guests happy.

We hope that all our guests have good experience in Japan through staying with the Japanese family.
