We are a couple of travelers and animal lovers looking for one or two people to watch over our home and 2 hilarious cats in Kansai, Japan. We live near the northern coast of Hyogo in a small town surrounded by mountains and organic rice patties. 20 mins to the hot spring town of Kinosaki Onsen and 30 mins to beautiful beaches.

Spring is a great time to visit Japan. Flowers will be blooming and the weather comfortable for the many outdoor activities in this area.

Our home is spacious with traditional Japanese touches and western amenities. It includes a gallery and glass workshop as well as a home office. Unlimited high-speed connection perfect for fellow remote workers.

Our two adopted tabbys are twin brother and sister and will be about 6 years old. They are inseperable, where you find one, the other is sure to be nearby. Kiki and Tanu are very playful, vocal, cuddly, and curious. However, they have become quite shy around strangers. They are healthy, have had blood tests, vaccines, and are fixed. They are mostly indoor cats.

Those with experience caring for cats are strongly preferred. Some Japanese ability a plus.

Thank you for considering our housesit. We look forward to learning more about you!

“ We had such a good time in Toyooka! ”

Karissa & Alberto are outstanding hosts! They picked us up at the train station and we spent more than one week together to get to know each other, the Japanese culture as well as the beautiful natural surrounding.

Kiki & Tanu, the two cute tabby cats, are quite shy and got used to us after some time. They are easy going and love to be brushed and to play, especially in the late evening. We already miss them!

They live in a traditional and spacious Japanese house with all amenities you could wish for. We were happy to use their e-bikes for cycling around the area, which is a great activity by the way to explore Toyooka.

We really fell in love with rural Japan and the Japanese lifestyle whilst our stay. So all in all, we would return any time and do definitely recommend this house sit!

Thank you, Karissa & Alberto!
