Hello, there ! I'm YUKO.
I was born in OSAKA (in the 60's) and have been living in KOBE over 20 years. Me & my husband, hot fans of KYOTO, often visit there to retreat from the city of KOBE that is too modern and clean.
We got this apartment a couple of years ago as a home base to renovate an old terrace house of the western part of Kyoto.
Kyoto has millions of old houses in need of renovation because they are not allowed to be rebuilt.
It was really fun to paint the walls and board the floors in the hot and humid summer without a/c ! and now 2 foreign students are living in the house (with a/c !).
After the renovation, we came to think it would be a waste to use such a cozy and convenient place only for ourselves. So we'd be more than happy if you made use of our place to enjoy Kyoto to the utmost.
(Don't worry ! The studio is not self-renovated)
It is really a shame that we cannot see you, but our friends, Hazuki (Taiwanese beauty) and Afira (Indonesian cute), both fluent in English, will take care of you, giving you the apartment keys and showing you around the studio.
## More about us ##
We have a company which runs second-hand media product shops.
We buy and sell comics, games, toys, (that is, OTAKU items), clothes, musical instruments, etc. from and to people. We've been in the business over 20 years.
I enjoy drinking, esp. SAKE, playing tennis and the steel drum.
I love watching Japanese films and sometimes do Tai Chi.
My motto is "Love the life you live, Live the life you love".
My husband was once a professional punk musician when he was a brat. (before punk, a jazz guitarist, rather unusual)
Now he is a businessman and a great lover of all sorts of music,
a bookworm and an epicure. His motto is " To eat is to live" ...
We hope you'll have a great unforgettable time in Kyoto!!!
