Based on terrible experience we had to make, we ask you to treat our house like your own house (we hope you treat your house nicely ;) ).
Handle our house with care and leave it in an agreeable clean state, because it is our home and not a random hotel room.
If the house is left in a bad state (big amounts of trash, chaos in the rooms, unwashed dishes) and takes a lot more time than an average cleaning would, a penalty fee of 5,000 yen for our extra effort and time will be taken down from your deposit. Please be aware of our rules and only proceed with your booking if you can agree with our conditions. Thank you!
We appreciate our guest's honesty and we are forgiving people. We expect our guests to take responsibility of caused damage.
If you break or lose something at our house, we would appreciate a quick notice so we can help solve the situation as soon as possible!
After reviewing the caused damage we will take down the necessary amount out of your deposit.
A lost WIFI will be charged with 20,000 Yen
A lost Key will be charged with 10,000 Yen
Broken interior will be decided case-by-case, depending on the importance of the item and the difficulty of replacement.
Thank you for respecting our time and efforts!
Please be kind to the neighbors. If you should run into anyone, a smile will do the trick :)
!! IMPORTANT !!
Also, if you get asked about staying in an "AIRBNB" in any kind of question by anyone in the building, we ask you to simply answer:
"we are friends of Gizem / Daisuke!". Smile and walk away. There is no need for further interaction.
Please don´t misunderstand us, we don´t want you to lie for us, in fact, we'd be happy if you´d actually like to be our friends! ;)
We are NOT hosting illegally. We have the OK of the House owner and are properly paying taxes, which makes us different from almost 80% of all Airbnb hosts in Tokyo.
Why is this important?
This is important because recently the Japanese media has been overflowing with reports about illegal hosting and hosts mis-using state-funded housing for earning money through Airbnb or similar sites.
Additionally there have been reported cases of trouble with neighbors due to noise or the wrong separation of trash.
These are all points we would like you to have an eye on, because this will be part of your Airbnb experience :)
The Bonsai House luckily has thicker walls than most regular Japanese apartments. Unfortunately this doesn´t mean, that excited conversations and loud laughter will not travel to your neighbors´bedrooms (or ears).
Thus we ask you to be considerate and modest with making noise (especially in the early morning hours and in the evening after 9 pm).
Especially, since the building manager lives right above our apartment, we ask our guests to tone down a notch when on the balcony or outside in the hallways.
A word about safety. The apartment is located in a very safe upper-class/ business area (there are almost no unsafe areas in Japan in general ;) )
There is a security guard in a small office box on the ground floor and a camera safety system installed in the whole building for additional security
Nevertheless, we recommend - using common sense - to never leave the doors and windows open when you are not at home :)
When the Doorbell Rings
Please do not answer the door, even if the door bell rings, other than if we have a scheduled meeting :)
No smoking allowed neither in the apartment, nor on the balcony. We do not mind however, if you wish to smoke in front of the building :)
In Japan smoking is only permitted in designated spots, mostly to be found infront of konbinis (convenience stores) or tobacco shops.
There is a Seven Eleven convenience store only 2 minutes walk from our house where you can have a smoke and buy tobacco :)
Tokyo is very strict about separating trash.
We would be grateful if you can separate the trash into the designated trash boxes in our kitchen and at the garbage dump downstairs. Wrong separation can be fined and is likely to get us in trouble with the house owner
Check - In / Check - Out
Check In time for our guests is from 4 pm (16:00)
Check Out is at 10 am (10:00)
We kindly ask our guests to check out at 10 am, so the cleaning personnel can enter the room to prepare it for the next guests.

Konnichiwaaaaaa - Cool that you're here!
I´m Gizem, German with Turkish roots, married to a Japanese and have been living in Tokyo for almost 3 years now. Admittedly a wild mix, which makes things really interesting ;)
Me and hubs met at "Gala Yuzawa" ski resort and these are 10 things we can't live without:
3) slurping thick brothy Ramen, scoffing down juicy Japanese BBQ, chowing down tender Shabu Shabu and munching local delicacies of places we travel!!
We appreciate tips for local eateries and have prepared a map to share with you the best eateries in the area of our house!
4) loud Metal and (almost) all kinds of Rock music \m/
5) movies and dramas (from "Married with Kids" to "Breaking Bad", haha)
6) dogs! especially our Shitzu/Chihuahua mix "Shiro" (I love all animals)
7) concerts & festivals (I've been a passionate festival and concert hopper since my 20's and had the chance to enjoy over a 100 concerts, of big and small artists (but still hope to see Phil Collins some day *__* )
8) the German Christmas Market and all its delicacies and Gluehwein!
9) our families and friends of course
10) eachother (aww)
I would describe my hosting style as a mix of Japanese "omotenashi" culture, German accuracy and Turkish warmness. From me as your host and as your guest, you can expect thoroughness, kindness, authenticity , honesty and cleanliness. I will do my best to make your stay at our house as comfortable and smooth as possible and will treat your home with the utmost respect.
Hosting cool people and genuine travelers is a real pleasure and I enjoy my job a lot!
If you've read this far, it means you're honestly interested in us and we are very grateful for that. THANKS!
Combined we speak English, Japanese, Turkish and German and will be glad to assist with any questions :)
Looking forward to hosting you in your Tokyo Home!

If you´re into exploring local cuisine and tasting a broad variety of food, combined with cultural background and insider info, I got you covered!
Depending on my schedule, I offer Local Tours for Food-Lovers in Tokyo, where you can just kick back and enjoy the local delicacies without worrying about language barriers and wasting your precious time on tourist trap restaurants.
Leave it all to me!
Additionally Japanese home cooking lessons are also available :-)
