Homii is the best way to learn Japanese! I came to Japan to study language in my gap year. After school my host taught me how to cook Japanese food like takoyaki. Also we went to bouldering and hiking together. I’m having wonderful experience which I couldn’t get if I stayed in a guest house. I’m so grateful to Homii team to give me this opportunity.

We were so lucky to meet my host and to be with a Japanese family. It is the best way to discover a country and a culture we think. My host welcomed us as we were family and we felt so comfortable with all of them. We enjoyed studying Japanese, teaching French, cooking and going to many places together. It was so much fun!!

It’s been our dream to live in Japan one day since we visited Japan for our honeymoon. I love traditional culture, so I’m so happy that I live in a Japanese old style house with kind support from my host Masami. She is my Japanese mother!
