  • Description


    We are Nilson and Rose with our son Yuto, 8 years old. We are Japanese descendants who grew in Brazil and then came back to Japan to work 20 years ago. We speak Japanese and Portuguese at home and would love to learn English, especially for our son. We also have 2 dogs and a lot of cats at home.

    We live in Kakegawa, 2 hours east of Tokyo by train. Our place is very calm in the countryside near the beach. You have a lot of things to do and discover at a biking distance from our home such as: hiking in nature, surfing or chill at the beach, discover onsen (public bath), tennis...

    I'm also a sensei and owner of a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy where you can train with us if you want so.
