HOMESTAY VILLAGE

HOMESTAY VILLAGE IN KAKUNODATE TOWN IN AKITA,@JAPAN

I live in a suburb of Kakunodate town named ''Shinmachiya New Town''in Akita,Japan.
I made a homestay circle in this Shinmachiya New Town in order to communicate with people from Japan and around the world.
I named this ''HOMESTAY VILLAGE''.
Retired people play a central leading role in this homestay circle.
A police man lives in our ''Shimomachiya New Town'', and there is a police station near here.
So,this area is very safe.
Please, come to our HOMESTAY VILLAGE. I welcome you.

My house has a slope leading to the entrance, and is barrierfree, So is wheelchair friendly.
@I welcome wheelchair guests. I can speak English.

There is a teacher who speaks English amongst the members.

@Massage is available(for an extra charge)
