founder Susan Macaulay traveled to Japan in November 2008. Here's what she says:

During my amazing trip to Japan in November (which I’m writing about, ironically, four months later in Malaysia), I had the incredible good fortune of staying with Fukiko Yuki Teramachi in her traditional Japanese home, which she operates as a guesthouse.

Fukiko is a fantastic hostess, who provided me with one of the richest travel experiences I’ve ever had.

I slept on a futon in a tatami-ed room. She cooked me delicious Japanese dishes using fresh produce from her organic garden, dressed me in one of her beautiful kimonos, arranged an interview with a meiko (a geisha in training), and took me on a walking tour of her village, among many other things.
