My hubby and myself are planning to go to Japan either in May or July 07. As we're not the sort who's entirely into shopping, we're hoping to do something a bit more different. I have been told that a home-stay with a local family would be great because of the cultural exchanges involved (of course it is likely that we'll have to stay with a family that speaks at least some English; me and hubby can't speak conversational Japanese).
Does anyone have any idea if there are local families in Chiba who are host families? Who would be willing to host a couple (We're from Singapore) for approximately 2 weeks or so?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions or leads. Or perhaps you can point us in the right direction?
