About the Host, Andrea & Mayumi
We are Andrea and Mayumi! Australia and love for new experiences brought us together !
For six years we have traveled the world together sleeping in the most absurd and disparate place. In Italy we have managed tourist apartments for years and now that we moved to Kyoto , the birthplace of Mayumi , we would like to put at your disposal our experience to introduce you this fantastic city in the way it deserves.
Andrea: "Personally, I feel even more tourists resident. In my spare time , when I'm not busy studying the language , I love to lose myself and find myself on the banks of the Kamogawa river . " I think it has something magical that always manages to draw me in spite of everything . If you like sports or readers like myself, do not forget your sneakers or your readings , the banks of the Kamogawa are perfect for these practices ! Welcome revelers are also musicians and aspiring photographers . In short, Kamogawa is for everyone! "
In addition to welcome you upon your arrival , We will indicate places to see , shops or restaurants to eat and anything else you need !
We speak English Italian and Japanese . With the Spaniard we will arrange ! ;)
See you there!
Siamo Andrea e Mayumi! L’Australia e l’amore per le nuove esperienze ci ha fatti incontrare!
Per sei anni abbiamo girato il mondo assieme dormendo nei posti più assurdi e disparati. In Italia abbiamo gestito appartamenti turistici per anni ed ora che ci siamo trasferiti a Kyoto, città natale di Mayumi, vorremmo mettere al Vostro servizio la nostra esperienza per introdurVi questa fantastica città nella maniera in cui merita.
Andrea: “Personalmente mi sento ancora più turista che residente. Nel mio tempo libero, quando non sono impegnato a studiare la lingua, adoro perdermi e ritrovare me stesso lungo le sponde del fiume Kamogawa”. Penso che abbia un qualcosa di magico che riesce sempre ad attrarmi nonostante tutto. Se siete sportivi o lettori come il sottoscritto, non dimenticate le vostre scarpe da ginnastica o le vostre letture, le sponde del Kamogawa sono perfette per queste pratiche! Benvenuti siano anche suonatori festaioli e aspiranti fotografi. Insomma, Kamogawa è per tutti!”
Oltre ad accoglierVi al Vostro arrivo, Vi indicheremo posti da vedere, negozi o ristoranti in cui mangiare e qualsiasi altra cosa abbiate bisogno!
Parliamo Italiano Inglese e Giapponese. Con lo spagnolo ci si arrangia! ;)
