★-House Rules-ハウスルール
Hello to all my guests! Our name is GenTomo.
We look forward to meeting you and doing our best on supporting you to make your stay precious for both you and us.

-Required things to be noticed when you book-予約時必須事項
Please make sure to let us know the following details when you book.
・Nicknames, ages and sex of all the guests
・Estimated time of arrival
-Optional things to be noticed when you book-予約時任意事項
In addition to the above points, it will help us to understand your situation better if you can also let us know the following details.
・Your flight number ( or the transportation you are going to use) and its estimated time of arrival
・The purpose of your visit and your next destination
・The reason(s) why you choose to stay with us

-Things to be forbidden in the house-禁止事項
・Smoking in the house
・Entering the host’s room ( on the 2nd floor, near front door) without our permission
We hope our guests to strike up conversations with one another.

To get the ball rolling, greeting is a good way to have a smooth start.

Since you are / will be in Japan, let’s try saying some greeting phrases in Japanese. If you are Japanese, let’s try using English when you speak to guests from other countries.

Say ‘Tadaima! / I’m home!’ when you get home or check in.
Say ‘Okaeri! / Welcome home!’ when you hear someone get home.
Say ‘Ittekimasu!’ when you leave or check out.
Say ‘Itterasshai!’ when you hear someone leave.

As an opportunity for guests to make friends with one another, we often offer freshly cold-pressed juice in the morning. The serving time can be changed depends on the day, but we usually ask all the guests to get together from 8:30 to 9:30. The breakfast for us is this fresh juice. In the host absence, a guest can treat other guests to fresh juice.

Say ‘Kanpai! Itadakimasu!’ which means ‘Cheers! Thank you for the drink!’ in English to start drinking. After enjoying it, let’s say ‘Gochisousamadeshita!’ to share the happiness and smiles with everyone.

The cost for the juice has been paid for you by the previous guests who hoped the future guests to get the lovely service like they did. By donating \100 to ‘与え愛箱’ (Ataeaibako; love-giving box) per drink, you can also join the house’s circle of love-giving. So it is optional to make a contribution, but you are very welcome to pass your \100 coin onto the next guest to sustain this system.

At night, It is greatly welcome to have a drink and chat with other guests in the living or dining room. A wide range of alcohol is available in the fridge with \200 per can if you feel like drinking.
The kitchen is 24h open, so please feel free to prepare snacks or light meals voluntarily to enjoy with other people. Such active attitude of yours will make us very happy as a host.

You welcome that you treat other guests to the dish of your hometown.

As I establish " Ataeaibako; love-giving box " for exclusive use of the dinner, the guest to cook, please receive a material cost from there.

The guest who was treated for the next guest for exclusive use of the dinner " Ataeaibako; love-giving box " using 1,000 yen as an indication.

If you are lucky, you might get to enjoy our home-made healthy meals. Please feel free to join us when we invite you to such opportunities. We will be glad to share with you.

Once you complete check-in, you can come back anytime. However, please be aware that other guests might be asleep late at night. So in that case, please say ‘Tadaima’ ‘Ittekimasu’ quietly (Yes, you are still supposed to say those ;).)

We study English very hard currently, but you still might feel inconvenience on communication during your stay. Your speaking slowly and clearly with supportive mind will be a great encouragement for us. We always appreciate it.

Basically, we ask a house cleaner to change the bed sheets, doing the laundry and cleaning the house before the next guest arrives. When you see her while staying with us, please say ‘Itsumo Arigatou!’ to make her happy and keep this house in even more happiness.

Our standard check-in time is 5 pm (Japan time of course. Haha), but we can be flexible with it. In case of when you join in another guest’s room, you can bring and keep your baggage in the hallway on the day you check-in, but you can’t enter your room earlier than 3pm.

For late check-in, I cope with adaptation to circumstances. Please come in peace.

Please make sure to let us know your anticipated check-in time when you make a reservation. If any change occurs, please also notify us; otherwise we will be worried about you.

Finally, this English transcript was written by Rina who is a lovely Japanese lady stayed with us in March 2016. We would love to show our appreciation of her help here.この説明文の英語は、2016年3月にゲストとして宿泊をしたRINA-sanという素敵な日本人女性が翻訳してくれています。この場を借りて、改めて感謝します。

‘Arigatou (Thank you), Rina!’
– Rina: ‘Kochirakoso! (Thank YOU! That’s how Gen-san always responded to me )’

@ home in Tokyo. Greatest place to start my trip in Japan. Not central true, yet so nice to come to quiet Takenotsuka after a day spent exploring the city. Easily reached by public transport, the house provides you with all the basics. Shops & restaurants nearby. The hosts are very welcoming and available, you'll have a good time in Gentomo House! Une très bonne adresse pour découvrir Tokyo. A 30 minutes environ du centre ville, Takenotsuka est très bien desservie par les transports publics et offre un calme bienvenu après une journée passée à explorer la capitale. La maison est très bien équipée, avec magasins et restaurants à proximité. Les hôtes sont accueillants et disponibles, vous passerez un agréable séjour à Gentomo House!
