Other Things to Note
There is a piano in our house, but it doesn't work now, because of suffering from tsunami.
The host was very friendly and responsive to requests and questions. The property was listed as described, with good internet access and a warm and welcoming feel. There is plenty of space and extras such as a music player and drinks in the fridge that helped make this a lovely stay.
The neighbourhood was pretty out of the way from Sendai, however going to the coast and seeing the damage from the 2011 tsunami made this an poignant and unforgettable experience. Being able to grasp a fraction of what it must have been like during that disaster made this a worthwhile and educational stay.
It was a very unique experience at Naohiro's place. The story behind the rebuilding effort was remarkable. The location is just off the Pacific cost, very quiet and right in the nature.
It was a rather long ride from the Sendai station by bus, but Naohiro was very good at giving out directions, and the instruction was well thought-out. This would be an excellent place for a large group camping or retreat.
Great place to stay, we were very happy with it!
