Kaori is a very helpful and nice host! Though my stay is short, I can feel her hospitality. The flat is located in a quiet residential area which can enjoy quiet lifestyle in Japan. Just 20 min express train to umeda, it's very convenient. Kaori introduced the nice bread shop nearby and it is really delicious! Will definitely recommend to others and hope to stay at her place again!
The flat is perfectly located in a very friendly and peaceful neighborhood close to the Kobe-Osaka-Nara railway. Easy to just hop on the train for day-trips to Himeiji, Kobe, Nara and Kyoto.
The room was clean and comfortable and very peaceful. The futon was perfectly fine to sleep on even if it wasn't as soft as a regular bed :-) Staying in such a nice Japanese home was a great part of making my two-week-trip to Japan a memory for life!
Kaori is very friendly and helpful. She met me at the flat when I dropped by to leave my luggage and even if she was busy, she took the time to walk with me to the train station and showed me how to get tickets and where to go. She also helped me make airport shuttle reservations to and from the airport at a very reasonable prize.
Thanks Kaori! Hope to see you again :-)
Everything was great. The location, neighborhood, etc. etc. The best part is the host, Kaori. She is very kind and open about many things. The experience she provides is great. We even spent a few hours chatting over some great coffee.
Overall, the neighboring cities and their attractions are great, but staying here will make the trip even better.
The apartment was simple and clean, well located. Quite convenient to take trains to city centres like Osaka, and Sannomiya. Also easily accessible to Arima Onsen. There was a tennis court and a park across the house.
Kaori was a gentle and quiet girl. It's always interesting to chat with her and exchange culture. She was also very helpful in arranging shuttle bus from her apartment to KIX Airport, at reasonable rate. She even saw us off downstaris of her apartment on the day we left.
perfect place to sleep, it takes about 20-25 minutes from the appartment to kobe, place was spacious and extraordinarily clean, plus in a very high class neighbourhood, it takes no 5 minutes to walk to the beach, the sunset was beautiful :)
I had an amazing, very comfortable stay at Kaori's beautifully natural flat! One of the best places you could choose in Kobe, with great connections to Osaka too. Shame we didn't get to talk more but there's always the next visit....(Btw. do remember to ask Kaori to play some ukele for you if you stay at her place!).
We had a wonderful stay with Kaori. It is a simple room, but she gas everything you will need. Her home is exceptionally clean and we were very comfortable. Kaori was able to recommend the best bakeries in the area and other tourist spots. The location is perfect for Kobe, kyoto and osaka. She's super nice and if we are ever fortunate enough to be in Japan again, we would like to stay again. Thanks Kaori! X

From Hyogo, Japan.
I like traveling, meeting local people and know their culture, eating, hot springs. Japanese is my mother tongue. As second and third, English and Korean are available.
I'm on macrobiotics and really enjoy eco minded life.
If you're interested in those, you're more than welcome !!
Nice to meet you someday and somewhere on the planet.
