I´m not a fan of organized tours, I much rather spend some time getting to know the people of the country I´m visiting. So when I found out about the oportunity to have lunch at a Japanese person´s house through Nagomi Visit, I thought it was a great idea! My host was a lady called Katsue and the communication with...

What a great way to start your trip in Japan! After a 9-hour-flight from Helsinki, I arrived in Tokyo on a rainy day. I was mildly suffering from the effects of jet-lag. Knowing that I had a dinner arrangement with the Matsui family, made me feel safe. Once I booked the event through NAGOMI Visit, I got the contact details... More

We planned this for the middle of our whirlwind 10 day trip to Japan. The day of the event, we had ridden the train from a ryokan in Tsumago, all of the way to Kyoto and were so tired we considered cancelling our evening. Boy am I glad we didn't!! This was just a terrific night! After some confusion in... More

I often come to Japan for business, but this was the first time I've been into a family's home slightly outside of centralTokyo. Booking was very easy, and I was soon contacted by a family that proposed to host. Rieko went all her way to make sure i will find the train station, and came with her husband to pick... More

This is definitely a must-do for anyone visiting Japan! Our original hosts had to cancel due to sickness, however Eri stepped up and hosted 3 of us for dinner. Along with her sister, Eri prepared a simply incredible meal and was a very gracious host. We had so much fun, learned a lot about life in Japan for young women,... More

This was amazing. I've lived in Japan and have Japanese friends, so know how they live. This was truly authentic. We were met at the station by our friendly host, and walked about 10 min through a shopping street to her apartment. There, she served us a beautifully prepared special Japanese lunch. We were able to tell her ahead of... More

At the last minute, two of the Nakano children ans Mrs.Nakano herself becqme sick with the flu. The were not able to welcome me in their home, but Hiromi-san asked me if I was interesting in having dinner with him and his 3 year old son. It was a nice gesture. We ended up going to an Izakaya in Osaka.... More

Arigato so much for taking the time to share us your experience :) A Nagomi Visit is not a typical tourist activity and more like visiting a friend’s house so very glad you enjoyed the unexpected! More

Please take this wonderful cultural opportunity to see how and where Japanese people live! Our hosts, the Tanimizu family, were delightful, funny and engaging. They welcomed us (including our young boys ages 7 and 9) into their home and prepared a feast of various seafood and vegetables. We talked with them about a variety of cultural topics, laughed and our... More

Arigato so much for saying your Nagomi Visit was “one of the highlights” of your trip. We especially love how you said “our hosts made us feel like friends - not foreign visitors” as that is what we want a Nagomi Visit to be. This surely means a lot to everyone in the Nagomi Visit community including of course the... More

We joined Yuko and her husband at their beautiful home that has a great view of the mountains off to the west to learn how to make some wonderful Japanese food. Yuko is a master at this. The session was well organized and Yuko was able to work with students with varying levels of cooking talent. Recipes were easy to... More
