Shibata family is amazing! Michiyo san is a super woman who takes care of everything and also cooks great food. I felt trully immersed on the daily life of this the guest house family. The kids were amazing and my room was really comfortable. I already miss them and I miss Mima, a really small town, but a daily walk along Anabuki river is something that heal your soul. I am so grateful for have had the opportunity to live with them. Whithout a car is not easy to visit the places in Shikoku island, but the guest house with them is really worth! The work is really easy and you will have plenty of time.

Staying and helping and Nodokeya was one of the best experiences ever! I was warmly welcomed by the Shibata family and immediately felt like home. During my stay I was always included in their community and various activities in Mima town, a tiny but pretty charming town. They speak very little English but communication was kind and respectful at all times. The chores were simple and easy to do, I always had time for my self besides my days off. Just not many sighting places close by. The room was super comfy and private. The food was always a delight! Thank U so much to all Nodokeya staff <3

It has been one of the most wonderful experiences in my life. It was my first trip to Japan, the Shibata family welcomed me and taught me about their culture in the most kind and friendly way possible. Michiyo San is a warm and kind person who showed me how beautiful his town and his family are. They are incredible artists with a lot of talent and it has been wonderful to learn and live with them. About the tasks, they are easy and quick to do, if you get confused you don't have to worry, they will guide you to the end, there is a lot of free time to get to know the town and enjoy.

Staying at Nodokeya guest house was a really good experience! Michiyo-san and Yoshiho-san received me very well, and also their 3 cute children! I had the opportunity to attend various events with local people, practice my the guest house make friends. Everyone was so nice to me! :) The work was easy and less hours than expected (September is not a very busy season), I had a lot of free time. The surroundings were very beautiful and calm, during the week there isn't a lot going on, it's peaceful. It was sad to go, I definitely had a good time and plenty of fun ☺️ Hope to meet again!

Michiyo and Shibata were great hosts. They're very nice, welcoming, and accommodating. Michiyo took note of my favorite things and made sure to serve them for meals or took me to places to experience them. They fed me really well :) and took me to some interesting places around the area. The work varies from day to day. Some days were quite hard, but other days were very easy. It also depends if there were a lot of customers or not. I also got a lot of time off so I was able to explore the area and relax. If you love nature and countryside the guest house, then you will love this place.
