“Near the end of our trip we wanted a pause in the Japanese countryside. Even if there was the possibility to do plenty, we stayed peacefully at Furumaya, and enjoyed its beautiful surroundings. The place is authentic and we could discover what it is like to live in the countryside. We also met a wonderful family who took very good care of us. The food was truly beautiful and excellent: Sayaka is a great cook. We stayed mainly at the house enjoying its peace but had a tea ceremony with a nearby master of tea: that was also en encounter and an unforgettable experience. We would recommend without reserve to stay at Furumaya. We stayed there three nights but would have enjoyed it longer. Thank you Sayaka, Nicolas and Theo.” (TripAdvisor, July 2019, family from Switzerland)
- “Sayaka and Nicolas are very nice, open, interesting and interested and above all so welcoming. I have never met anything like this.Their old house is beautiful restored, the views are splendid and pacific, the meals are overwelming in looks and in taste. We will certainly love to come back, it’s the Japanese countryside at its best.” (TripAdvisor June 2019, couple from Denmark)
- “We are so glad we stayed at Furumaya and wish we had allotted more time. The countryside is a beautiful place to spend some time, especially if you’ve been traveling through the larger cities of Japan. The family has created a very welcoming and comfortable space to enjoy, and they make you feel right at home. Nicolas and Theo greeted us at the train station, and we enjoyed a cooking lesson with Sayaka in the evening. Her cooking is excellent, and much of the food you will eat is either local to the area or grown on the property. We are so thankful to Sayaka, Nicolas, and Theo for opening their homes and their hearts to us during our stay and would definitely recommend for others to stay here and take in this experience.” (TripAdvisor April 2019, couple from the U.S.)
“A wonderful home stay experience, Sayaka is great cook, probably the best Japanese food we had on our holiday, plus a delicious western breakfast. Furumaya House is nestled in the middle of rice fields, surrounded by stunning countryside and Nicolas and Sayaka are perfect hosts.” (Review on Booking,com May 2019, couple from the U.K.)
“Outstanding experience, not least to mention Sayaka-san’s culinary magic. Friendly and relaxing athmosphere in a beautiful pastoral area, very peaceful. We hope to return a third time.” (Review on Booking.com April 2019, couple from Sweden)
“A repeater here. That should say enough. But just to mention again: the food was delicious!!” (Review on Booking.com Dec 1018, group of colleagues from Kobe/Belgium)
