From the United States / #studyabroad

I am so thankful to have found Homii. From day one, when I first moved in with Youhei and Aki, I felt a warm and friendly presence. I am also very happy I was able to meet the family before deciding to move. It made the moving process more casual and created an open atmosphere. I am very thankful for this experience, as I am able to practice learning Japanese, ask questions about Japanese culture, and even share my own background.

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!!

A vicarious experience with considerate Homii Team! Homii’s been the best way to explore various aspects of local culture like cooking, dining, clothing, language, etiquettes etc. It helped me in:
Choosing the right host
Co-ordinating with host for any clarification before/during my stay
Smooth check-in/check-out with no deposit & with included insurance
