We are close to JR Narai Station and a park in Narai, where there is a full of traditional Japanese constructional arts and culture. You’ll love my place if you are interested in the traditional Japanese style houses, the lifestyle, and the small town neighborhood.
It's recommended for couples, group travellers and solo adventurers.
We are located in Narai, a very well-preserved town that makes you feel you have time-traveled to 400 years ago. This place is owned by a lovely couple who likes chatting with the guests. Midori, the manager of Airbnb, is helping the owner couple and the local people communicate in English when needed.
The host will arrange to be available during your stay. Mainly because this post town Narai is not yet fully accustomed to non-Japanese visitors. Narai is a very pretty town, but if you only get to see the surface of it, your Narai trip will be over in two hours. To see what's underneath it, you would want someone from the area to show you around to fully enjoy the stay, especially if you speak little Japanese.
Once back inside the minshuku, the host offers support only when asked.
This Minshuku has a kitchen, but there is no oven or microwave oven.
We have very steep staircases.

I'm a native Japanese who studied abroad, came back after 8 years, only to find where I grew up is filled with subtle treasures that only few locals seem to notice. I missed out for 8 years, and all the years back when I just never noticed.
So now I'm exploring the real local life of Japan! Join me in hands-on experience with the local community.
