Taka was the best host even though he was one of our first! We had a great time with him, cooked a lot of very good Japanese food, chatting about everything , hanging out, discovering the city. Takahiro spent all his free time with us to show Tokyo on its best side, with all the joy he has. Taka’s home is very central so you can do a lot of things by walking. Not only we met a funny and friendly people but we also made a friend! I really hope we’ll see again very soon. Come to France for sure! Thank you for everything !

How they moved one place to another

Emma & Basile started traveling since January which is right before Corona virus got sensational and had so big impact on our society.

They started from France to Moscow, Russia by bus and got on Siberian railway and finally moved to Shanghai, China. The total time is only 1 month.

Okonomiyaki welcome

I always welcome people with Okonomiyaki since we can change any ingredients like vegetable only or some seafood. Emma& Basile were vegetarian, so we try to make vegetarian okonomiyaki together with a lot of drinks in Sat lunch time. We talked a lot of stories since they have been traveling for 7 month so far. How much they miss France or family in general. But they told me that they want to start traveling again after some rest in France.
