About Host

Hi, Konnichiwa, My name is Yuki. I live in Gifu pref which is located in central of Japan.

I like cooking and eating since I was a child. When I was a child, I often cooked with my grandmother and mother. They taught me a lot of Japanese recipes.

Even I grow up and work as an adult, I’m love and interested in cooking and food. So that I went to a dietitian technical school and got a qualification.

I’m interested in different cultures, so I'd like to talk with people from various countries.

Less than three guests are fine for us, because of our kitchen and dining space.
Our location is a train (JR main line) passing point between Nagoya and Kyoto.

Our location would be convenience for you.
