Bed, Breakfast and Japanese healthy Dinner

The B&B "I'm Home" is not a B&B. We would like to be called a BB&D (Bed Breakfast & Dinner). We are introducing Japanese cuisine as healthy diet. We also produce the vegetables from our organic vege gardens.

We operated Japanese food bars in Christchurch late 1990s which was the beggining of Sushi boom in the South Island. Since we started our B&B in Oamaru in 2004, we have been introducing more healthy Japanese cuisine. There are many healthy ideas in the traditional Japanese food. Here we have organic vege gardens, organic apple orchard and are developing fruit garden as well. We are also enjoying making todu, miso, shiitakemushroom, etc. for ourselves.
