Research Fieldwork in Japan

For their research fieldwork in Japan, M. and S. sent me an inquiry for my house in Kamigamo Kyoto from the end of December to the end of January. We have been exchanging email regarding the house, neighborhood hiking course, and things available in Kyoto. My sister who lives next city welcomed the family on the first day, and all of them had a wonderful experience in face to face.
