Hello, there ! I'm YUKO.

Dear my future guests!
Thank you for checking out my new listing!
I've hosted over 100 awesome guests and had great moments with them for the past two years. (Thank you all! I miss you!)
It's a shame I had to close down those studios for personal reasons but now I've teamed up with my friend hosts, Mu & Nina, both experienced and dedicated hosts, and presenting a new listing (bigger than my former listings), the Ebisu, which may not be suited for a couple but for a bit larger party. I cannot thank you enough if you could have a little interest in my new place. Thank you!

** a little bit about myself ^^**

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.

First, we got a small apartment (Ikoi studio in Kawaramachi) 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 as 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 started renting it out via Airbnb and really had a great time as I mentioned above. In the meantime, I fortunately met some great new hosts and offered them opportunities to host new listings(not on my own account but on their accounts)--They are, Mu & Nina, Saya, Yuki and Kyoto Smile Project. So I'd be more than happy if you could also check out their listings to choose the best place for you!

## 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!!!

Thank you so much!!
