I moved to Maizuru 2 years ago. I met a leader of a group which would like to stimulate Maizuru. The leader thought there was a wonderful house for stay, but no one operated it as a hostel. On the other hand, I was looking for a new job especially talking with people. We met and became a good friend , opened a guest house in September, 2017. I met a city officer who takes in charge of sightseeing in Kyoto. She showed me a unique kimono. I was really interested in it. I borrow them and learned how to put them. I think it might be a good opportunity for many people know this place more .
