What people are saying about Nagomi Visit

“We enjoyed two Nagomi visits.”

First in Tokyo with a delightful hostess and…our second visit, in Matsumoto was different but equally wonderful. Our two Nagomi visits have been the highlight of our 3 week long Japan trip. I strongly recommend the programme to anyone visiting Japan.

“You must do it!”

We took two programs of Nagomi Visit, one evening we went to a dinner and the next day we took a cooking class. Both activities were the best we had on Tokyo. You finally see a Japanese house, meet a Japanese family and have some time to talk.

“It was awesome.”

At first, I wasn't sure about this experience. It seemed a little odd to me. But once my host met me at the train station, we hit it off right away…I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you!! I will definitely do this again on my future vacations.
