I am living in Tsukuba city with my Japanese wife and children for 8 years. Our house is Japanese traditional style and we have enough space to accept some tourist from any kind of country. From before, I was thinking, why there is not any cheap hotel for foreigner in Tsukuba city? I am working as a researcher at one of the national institutes in Tsukuba city and I saw and heard about this problem from many foreigners. For this reason, I decided to provide our room as a guest room. We (I and my wife) working in the day (Mon to Fri), so we can provide our room from 5:00PM to 9:00AM.
