Interaction with Guests

We love living in this area and our own apartment is just around the corner. We will personally meet and greet you and show you the apartment and how to use everything.

Please note that we use this house for our car park so you will see us in and out of our car from time to time.

Let us know if you need anything and we will happily accommodate most requests.

The Neighborhood

The house is in a quiet and safe street. The streets are fairly typical of suburban Tokyo and some urban hiking reveals interesting architecture as well as many green spaces.

On days when you want to stick close to home, the neighbourhood bustles with restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and other amenities. There is a grocery store nearby perfect for stocking breakfast and for snacks, we suggest any of the nearby convenience stores which are open 24 hours.

We've drawn up a neighborhood map to help you find what you need.

We have also included a selection of novels and travel brochures, walking maps and a Lonely Planet for you to use during your stay. We are happy to recommend out of the way places and local knowledge of our combined 20 years living in Tokyo.

Getting Around

Sightseers love the location. Enjoy a 15 minute stroll through Central (Chuo) Park to the Tokyo Metropolitan Building with its free observatory and tourist office.

Shinjuku station itself is around a 15-20 minute walk.

Sangubashi Station (Odakyu Line) is less than a 5 minute walk. From this station in one direction will send you on adventures toward Shinjuku or in the other to the funky Shimokitazawa. Plus there are buses to Shinjuku and Shibuya stations within minutes of the front door.

Hatsudai (New Keio Line) is about a 7 minute walk toward the Opera City complex and the National Theatre.

Walk 10 minutes to Yoyogi Station to either JR or Oedo subway and you can catch a train for any of these locations:

Shinjuku: 2 minutes

Shibuya: 5 minutes

Roppongi: 7 minutes

Ginza: 17 minutes

Akihabara: 17 minutes

Ueno: 24 minutes

Tsukiji: 26 minutes

Asakusa: 26 minutes

The Japan Sword Museum is a nearby and worth a visit if you are interested in weapons, history, or smithing. There are some truly beautiful blades on display.

Younger guests may enjoy the free pony rides every day at the Tokyo Equestrian Center a short walk away near the entrance to the Meiji Shrine gardens.

** Getting Here **

After you have confirmed your booking, a PDF will be emailed to you with all of the best options for getting into Tokyo from either airport or from other cities around Japan.

Other Things to Note

If you have any questions about our listings or Tokyo in general, please just ask.

*** Frequently Asked Questions ***

1) ARE MY CHOSEN DATES AVAILABLE?

Our calendar is ALWAYS up-to-date. We also have instant book facility so feel free to book immediately. Last-minute bookings are usually not a problem. Please introduce yourself and your group in the first email so we can get to know you and assist you with any special requests.

2) CAN I CHECK IN EARLY AND/OR CHECK OUT LATE?

Check-in time: 3PM or anytime after this. We are fine with late arrivals.

Check-out time: 10am or anytime before.

A courtesy 1-2 hours may be available ONLY if asked within 24 to 72 hours of arrival or departure (that is when we will know). More than 2 hours will require a fee or for you to book another night. We mostly have back-to-back bookings so please consider your travel plans when you make your booking. We are happy to adjust your if availability allows but please plan early as we do book up.

3. DO YOU HAVE LUGGAGE STORAGE?

The short answer is sadly no.

Many of the larger train stations have lockers big enough for a full size suitcase. Shinjuku Station has plenty of large coin lockers.

Alternatively, we recommend you use a baggage shipping service. Japan has a few companies to choose from - just do a web search for "Takkyubin Japan" to find the most commonly used companies. These are very reasonably priced, safe and extremely reliable. If you ship your luggage from the airport, you can move about the city easily and have your luggage delivered directly to the house at a time convenient for you.

3) HOW DO I ACCESS THE APARTMENT?

4) HOW CAN I CHECK IN?

Closer to your arrival we will be in contact to arrange a suitable time and place to meet with you. It will either be one of us or a trusted friend or relative. We will meet you, hand over the keys, run through the facilities of the apartment and also give you a tour of the local area if time allows.

5) CAN I ADD EXTRA PEOPLE / BEDS?

Our houses always have a variety of bedding options but we do not advise trying to squeeze in more than the maximum number of people on the listing. We want you to be comfortable and there are restrictions on the number of people who can sleep for safety reasons.

6) DO YOU CHARGE FOR CHILDREN?

We have a baby beds or baby futons for your use at no extra charge.

7) WHY IS THE PRICE DIFFERENT THAN I AM CALCULATING?

The total price is composed of three parts:

1. Nightly price x # of nights (plus any nightly charges for extra guests when applicable)

2. Cleaning fee(one-time fee)

3. Service fee(one-time fee set and collected by this website, typically between 6 and 12%)

Weekly Price: Price may fluctuate based on peak holidays, and special events.

Enter in your specific dates to see the current price for those days.

8) IS THE PLACE CLEANED DURING MY STAY?

It is professionally cleaned prior to your arrival and after you depart. For your privacy, no one enters the house during your stay except for you and your group.

If you wish to have a mid stay clean and linen service, this is possible for additional costs.

9)ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

Please email us at any time.

House Rules: As for any property for rent, there are rules about how the property may be used. The neighborhood has certain conditions that we must meet to remain as owners of the property.

*** Please do not book with us unless you and your fellow guests can abide by these rules. ***

SHOES: Please take off your shoes at the front door. Please use the slippers provided.

SMOKING: absolutely NO SMOKING inside the house - please use the ashtrays provided on the balcony. If you are on the balcony, please be courteous of the people living around you and do not sit outside after 10pm. Do NOT stand outside of the front of the house.

ADDITIONAL GUESTS: No additional people in the house without permission. If additional guests arrive, we are happy to adjust the booking to cover them should there be enough room for them.

PARTYING: This is residential neighborhood with a ZERO TOLERANCE for loud noise. In Japan it is very unusual to have parties at home. If there are problems with noise, the neighbours will not speak to you directly, they will either call the police or the building management company. In either case, this is a big problem for everybody. You will be asked to leave immediately and cover any costs that we might incur.

POWER: Please turn off all lights and air conditioners/heaters if you are not at home.

KEYS: Please be careful not to lose the key. If you do there will be a $50 dollar penalty fee as keys have to be custom ordered from the manufacturer.

RUBBISH/TRASH SEPARATION: Please separate your burnables, cans, plastic bottles, glass, and non-burnable items. The bins are labeled and there are additional bin liners in the kitchen. Please put the trash in the correct location on the correct day. This will be explained at checkin.

COMMUNICATION: If you have ANY questions about the house, please only speak with us. We will answer you immediately.

Most importantly, please think of this as your home and and be comfortable. We do want you to enjoy your stay. These rules are to ensure that everybody can continue to enjoy this house.

An amazing house with a great location. Perfect for our stay with 1 other couple for 6 nights. Nearby to Shinjuku, Shibuya and Harajuku but in a really peaceful local area of its own with some great little restaurants nearby. Convenient to the train station and grocery store. Would love to stay again next time we visit. Thanks Guys!

Such a great place! PERFECT location! Tracey and Ash could not have been better hosts! They were always available when we needed them. They are very organized and helpful with traveling the city. One thing I would let others know is that if you need a taxi you need to reserve at least two days in advance. We loved Tokyo and will book with Tracey and Ash again!!
