About Host


Hello. I am Sachiko. I love cooking and growing vegetables.
We grow vegetables in our garden. So I can offer some dishes with fresh home grown vegetables!

I'd worked as Japanese teacher for foreigners for many years. I currently work for tea company and vegan restaurant.
I like talking about Japanese teas, culture, language, growing vegetables and cooking!

My place Kouzu is 10 minutes from Odawara station.

Please visit me on the way to Hakone.
You can see Mt.Fuji from my place if weather is good.
