The space

We have 2 rooms we can provide to the guests.
•The main guestroom
is a complete private room with a window and your own balcony, and a book shelf filled with various books including quality photo books. You can spread one or two sets of futon mattress in the room so it'll be good for a couple or friends, too.
The room is designed to be the room of our future child so it has a nice view and quiet atmosphere.
•the smaller room
is also a complete private room with a single bed and 2 windows with a view to a soccer ground. As the room is small, we try not to put too many other things in the room. However, we are happy to provide you with anything that is needed.
There is a toilet for the guests located between the two guestrooms.

Interaction with guests

We live on the first floor of the house and spend lots of our time in the living/dining area. So we can meet the guest for breakfast, or dinner. As we both work full time and are keeping ourselves busy, most probably we cannot see you much in the daytime but we think it is important that we see our guests when we can and communicate well.
The next door neighbors know that we are Airbnb hosts so don't hesitate to say hi to them when you bump into them!

Other things to note

The host family is a married couple in their early 30s. We would like you to have a good memory in Japan so please ask anything you need to know about your stay in Japan, places to eat or visit, things to learn and experience. Depending on our work, we might not be able to spend a lot of time with you but we would love to see you in the morning/night to give any kind of support!
The house is a newly built one so it is very functional and strong against quakes. We would love to make our house a open and cozy place for everybody who visits here!

We really loved this house tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood in Shinjuku. Ayoko was such a kind host, made us dinner the evening we arrived and took such good care of us whilst we stayed there for two nights only. We would have loved to stay longer bc the atmosphere Ayoko created made you want to spend more time there! On the day of our departure, we were running a little late and she even took care of the taxi drive to the nearest train station bc otherwise we would have missed our connection! We were deeply grateful for her quick help and we would surely stay there again! Communication with Ayoko and Toosuke was always great and they went to great lengths to assure we had everything we needed - thank you guys :)

Another great stay with Ayako and Yosuke. Seems very different to a normal AirBnB stay, more like good friends, great company and a very relaxing stay. Its ideally located for my martial arts training trips and a very relaxed atmosphere. Great company to chat to them and enjoy meals together. Highly recommended.

This was a return visit to Ayako and Yosuke's place. Its always nice to come back here and they are now really good friends. Its a nice change from not seeing the host to being able to talk to them, walk with them around the neighbourhood, sharing a meal and communicate on many issues to help me get by in Japan. Its also convenient for my stays in Shinjuku. I really enjoy combining back. Highly recommended as usual.

Ayako and yosuke are wonderful hosts and to stay with them in tokyo was the best way to start and to end our wonderful trip through japan. It felt like living with friends and they where helpful in every way to show us the nicest parts of their city. We had great talks and meals and we will definitely want to come back to their home on our next trip to japan!

Nice place, not too far from nearest train station, hosts are good for a chat and a cute couple to boot. Only 2-3 stops to Shinjuku station by train and bus is also available if you chose. Be sure to copy the the address directly to your gps instead of using airbnb's directions.

I had a great time here! Although I got a little lost as I arrived after dark, I quickly found the place. Ayako and Yosuke have a beautiful home which is obviously very well maintained. In their home, you get the whole 3rd floor to yourself, allowing yourself privacy if you require it. During my time there, I got to speak to both Ayako and Yosuke a little and they were very welcoming and friendly. Would definitely consider staying here again!
