Latest reviews from our guests

    A sweet girl who loves food, conversation and learning about other people and cultures. The food became a fun little extra tonight. We are just a really fun night together and a lot of laughs. She brought us to 3 really cool places, and we had great food. Food we never would've tried if we were by ourselves. At the end of the night, she dropped us at a bar at our request so I could have a birthday drink with my gf. (It was my birthday at midnight) Thank you Haruhi xxx =)

    The experience with Robert and his family was just wonderful. They were easy-going, friendly, and ready to have fun. They tried all the foods I recommended and enjoyed them. They were very much interested in exploring the food and culture of Osaka, and I appreciated such of their attitude.

    First of all, it was my first time hosting guesting already living in Japan so I was kinda nervous, but they were such a lovely couple! I had an incredible time talking with them about culture, food and live experiences. 10/10
