Tucked away down a leafy country lane 160 kilometers west of London, Fosse Farmhouse looks like any other picturesque Cotswolds bed and breakfast with its honey stone facade and tranquil garden.

It also happens to have become "holy ground" for Japanese fans of the anime "Kin-iro Mosaic," some of whom travel from as far away as Sydney to stay in the British farmhouse featured on the show.

Based on the original manga series of the same name, the anime tells the story of schoolgirl Shinobu Omiya, who travels to Britain for a homestay and befriends Alice Cartelet, who later joins her at high school in Japan.
