It is a people to people home stay and meet-up system all over the world.
Several times a month somebody comes and stays one or two nights with us - for free.
A few years ago we stayed in India with a businessman who lived in Delhi.
It's a wonderful system and YOU too could become a host. Some people open their homes to visitors, others meet them for coffee or show them round Sapporo.
This month I've had German and French guests. This weekend was a Chinese man and his Japanese friend, both from Kyoto. They came on a 3 day driving holiday of Hokkaido and stayed with us one night.
This morning we had breakfast in the garden and chatted about hiking in Japan and camping in China. They brought me some souvenirs from Kyoto.
Two weeks ago some of the Sapporo Couch Surfing members and visitors had a BBQ by the Toyohira River, chatting in English and Japanese and enjoying the sunshine (and a few beers).
