Live in the real location of a Japanese Anime!

The Exchange

In 2014, our place was chosen to be used as a location for a Japanese Anime. The Anime is about an English teenaged girl called Alice Cartelet, who lives with her parents. Alice invites her best friend Shinobu to visit her in England. Shinobu arrives from Japan and spends her summer holidays with Alice and her family touring the lovely Cotswolds countryside nearby. The Anime is in it's second season now :)
