Our home

Our home is a wonderful combination of Western comfort and Japenese flavour. Situated in a Japanese neighbourhood, we experience Japan with all the comforts of a foreigner sized/styled home. The house has 4 bedrooms, a master with en suite bathroom, a children's bedroom with a single bed as well as a toddler bed, a study with a futon that sleeps 2 and the last bedroom is a playroom stocked with toys for young children. We have a spacious and light filled main floor with a large living room, dining room and kitchen. There is a deck off of the living room to relax or enjoy a meal on and it's surrounded by a lovely garden filled with flowers and many toys (including a sandbox, swing and slide) for young children to enjoy. Take a peek at the photos for a better idea.

Who we are

  1. We are Corry and James, a married Canadian couple with two smaller children and a third child due summer 2007. We have lived overseas in Asia for about 10 years. We have not done a home exchange before but are keen to try what sounds a great way to see another country as a resident - and allow someone to see yours. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email first to see how best we can facilitate their stay in Japan.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our location is ideal for anyone coming to experience a wide variety of offerings in Japan. We are located within walking distance to train and bus routes that will take you to action packed Tokyo (about 1 hour from our home)or head the opposite direction to the beach and temple town of Kamakura for a totally different day trip (also an hour away). Closer by, hop a bus and take in Yokohama's famous and delicious Chinatown or shop and lunch at Motomachi Shopping Street. As well, the newly developed Minato Mirai area offers an incredible experience of dining, shopping and entertainment all on the waterfront and only 15 minutes from our home by train. Within walking distance from our home (5 minutes) is Negishi Park, formerly a race track it now is a wonderful place to escape the city and stroll, jog or picnic under a canopy of cherry and plum trees.
