QWhat is a OneHomes “homestay”?
AOneHomes “homestay” grants an opportunity for guests from anywhere in the world to interact with people from the local community.
There are two types of homestays dealt with by OneHomes:
1) Shared-living type
The host family lives in the same house as the guest for the duration of their stay.
2) Interactive type
The host family resides at a property nearby, while maintaining their availability to interact with guests on a daily basis (e.g. when they live next door or another house on the same premises).
We do not call it a “homestay” if guests meet the host family only when checking-in or checking-out, or if there is no direct communication between guests and host families.
QWho are the OneHomes host families?
AAll host families listed on OneHomes are eager to welcome you into their homes and communicate with you as your family in Japan.
Also, each and every one of them is registered as a “Private Lodging Business Operator” certified by their local governments. This means that they must closely adhere to the rules of the Private Lodging Operations, which include keeping properties clean, safe, and secure for guests, and preventing potential disagreements involving guests, host families and neighbors.
