I'm an international student studying in Ryukoku University.
I'm wondering if your homestay is still available from June to July (probably one or two months).
And how much should I pay?

Thank you.

Tanukidani Temple - Kyoto

As you might know the foot of mountain Hiei, called mountain Uryu is in the very centre of our our activities. This is OUR mountain that we know very well and love even more. This Sunday there is a really unique event at one of the area's main temples, and includes a traditional ceremonial ritual, a huge bonfire, as well as the chance to walk over the coals/ashes for the brave ones! Feel free to join us, it's gonna be a great opportunity for members to meet up and get to know each others. And for that reason there is no event fee. We do need however, to pay for a ticket ( ¥500 - includes a lucky charm) to enter the temple. The exact meeting place has not been decided just yet, depending on people's participation we might meet up early, perhaps for a coffee or to walk towards the temple. Maybe even carry on later, after the event, for a quick drink and chat. Get in touch with us for more information and further arrangements.

Let us know if you have any questions or concerns, or if you need help finding the meeting place.

Thank you!
