Hello, my name is Yoshihiro (Chicca is my nickname). I am Japanese.
I am a cook. 173cm. 69kg. I am a little overweight. I like onsen, ramen, traveling, fishing, watching baseball (Hanshin Tigers) etc.
I used to work in a hotel and some restaurants in Osaka and Nara, and cooked Japanese and Italian food for 10 years. Food in our house is a speciality and my guests always enjoy big meals and leave with full stomachs.
I have been here in Nagano for 21 years and know the area well. I can help you make your plans nicely and offer any assistance required.
I stayed in England and travelled through France and Switzerland. I have also been to US and Canada by bicycle before.
I have 3 kids, who are sometime here and if you have kids they can have a great time playing together.
I can cook the following;
- Japanese meals (everything including Homestyle cuisine or Tempura, Sushi, Soba, Ramen, Shabu Shabu).
- Italian food, from Pizza, Pastas, Confit, or grills and roasts.
- Vegetarian foods including mountain vegetables of Nagano or home grown vegetables from my garden.
My photo on airbnb is about when I was 40 years old. Currently, the real one is a pretty old man after fifty. Do not be surprised. I speak Japanese and can understand a little bit of English.
Looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our mountain home!
