Sim from Singapore

He loves outdoor and travel. He used to take a bunch of friends to climb mountains. He found a job in China and he was going to start living in China.

Maki from Japan

After she was hooked on traveling, she was only thinking about going out to explore the world. She was on the way to travel around the world and landed China.

We met in Lhasa, Tibet in 1999 and traveled together.

We got married and opened our first guesthouse in Chengdu, China in 2004.

Our guesthouse/hostel in Chengdu loved by so many travelers. Too see more photos;

We moved to Kyoto, and started our new life in this old house.

It took 2 years and finally opened Guesthouse Soi in 2014!
