Comment from the Farm inn Guesthouse INASHIKI NEST Owner and Tour Guide
Hello! Thank you for visiting this blog.
I love traveling all over the world and visited more than 20 countries and met a lot of great people there.
Why do I run my own guest house ? It’s to make a safe space where everyone can feel comfortable and equal. Within its common space, locals and people from other countries will communicate with mutual respect.
Age, nationality or religion doesn’t matter. People will be laughing and alongside learning a different culture, will enjoying spending their own time.
In addition, I would like you to feel as if you’re in a home from home here.
It takes around 2 hours from Inashiki-city,Ibaraki to Tokyo by bus or car but here there is no nearest train station. Even though it’s not far, the area is not widely known due to the lack of local transport.
This means the local area has retained its own culture and tradition so that you can see the real locals’ life in Japan.
In the countryside, you can see beautiful rice fields with the horizon and spend your time calmly. You can enjoy deeply getting to know the local people too.
It was a long process to renovate and clean up the old abandoned house.In addition, one year after I moved to Inashiki-city, Ibaraki, Japan from Tokyo, covid-19 started and we couldn’t travel around freely like we’re used to.
Even though we’re still in the process of getting back to normal, I believe the day that we travel around the world normally will come back.
This is because it’s important to know about other countries and people who live there.
I believe that if we know each other we will have less conflict. Please imagine if you have friends in another country, for example, would you accept to start a war with the country? Of course not. If you visited another country and met a lot of nice people, after that if the country started to have a big problem, you wouldn’t be able to neglect the situation.
On the other hand, if you don’t know about another country at all, even the name of the country, it might be difficult to imagine what’s going on there or be less interested in it.
I’m convinced that knowing and experiencing other countries is one of the vital keys to keeping the world peaceful.
