Wakaura has a very deep history and has long been a popular summer resort and tourist destination. Wakaura offers not only scenery, but also historical sightseeing with its various temples, castles, and gardens. In addition, although it is not well known, Wakayama produces a wide variety of fruits, so that it is called the fruit kingdom, and it is said that all fruits eaten in Japan can be obtained from Wakayama Prefecture.

We moved from Tokyo to an old Japanese-style house in Wakayama with the vision of “a house where people gather”. Coincidentally, this old house, which we will be using for everyone, used to host many lodgers and many different kinds of people about 60 years ago. For meals, we buy fish directly from the fishing port and as much local vegetables as possible from the produce market, and we try to make our meals clean, locally produced and consumed.

3 Key Points

1Host’s introduction 
We moved to Wakayama in 2020 with our three family members and fulfilling our life here. Since both husband and wife are freelancers, we often work at home using the computer. We noticed the importance of the “community” so we also launched Immigrant Community. We work with the motto “People are gathered in a happy place”, so basically we have a lot of positive conversations. We have a little daughter maybe it going to be fun who likes kids.
2You can interact with people like this! 
You can interact with people who came to the rural of their own. And we can introduce you to the owner of the Guest House who is close to us.
3You can experience like this!
We managed immigrant interactions so you can experience planning and operations if it’s good timing. Of course, you can also communicate with other participants so that able to hear a lot of stories from them. We also live with poultry, so you can feed them and experience the harvesting of freshly laid eggs. We are so glad you have fun with our five-year-old daughter. We may ask who likes to do DIY to make our house more comfortable.

Convenient Countryside Life

My mother and my two children, aged 4 and 2, were in your care for a week. We brought an electric bicycle with us, which proved very handy for short trips to the pool, beach, and local supermarket. The meals were delicious at every sitting, especially the fried shrimp, which my daughters loved and ate whole, shells included. They made friends with the local children and played until they were sweaty every day, morning, noon, and night. They also became friends with the chicks and chickens, and we're very grateful for all the experiences we had. The seaweed we bought as a souvenir has been enjoyed by the whole family a little each day since then. It was truly a week that flew by in the blink of an eye. Thank you!
