About Host


My name is Midori Ogura. I live in a countryside house with my husband who works as a woodcrafter for 30 years. I like to cook using seasonal vegetables as we have lots of vegetables in Japan available for each of the four seasons. If you are vegan, I can cook vegan lunch, too. I like to arrange the dishes on an individual low table my husband made of wood (See photos). Please see our homepage, if you want to know what we are and how we live.
