This comfortable and fully self contained unit is a cozy studio with its own private entrance and is just minutes from Sangubashi station. We live right upstairs but you would hardly know it. We are available for any questions you may have but generally you will have complete automomy and privacy.

We are an Australian family and we have lived in Tokyo for over 20 years and we have deep ties to our local community in Tokyo. Our son was born in 2010 and he attends local Japanese elementary school. We love eating out and exploring hidden spots in Tokyo and the other parts of Japan. Weekends you'll find us hiking or skiing or down at the beach.

We’ve hosted thousands of guests to date, many of whom come back every year. Our real-life friend list never stops growing, and we can’t wait to make you a part of it!

NOTE: The house is close to the train line but the double glazing and insulation of this brand new house means that this will not interfere with your comfort.

House Rules

We strive to make your stay a good one, and we try to be considerate to our neighbours. These rules help to ensure that everybody can continue to enjoy this home. Thank you for your understanding.

Legal notes: According to Japanese law (住宅宿泊事業法 Jyutaku syukuhaku jigyou hou or law on private lodging), we will need to keep a copy of your passports on-file. These are kept under strict conditions to maintain your privacy.

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

SHOES
Take off your shoes inside the front door. Please use the slippers provided.

SMOKING
This home is a smoke-free zone. Please smoke in designated outdoor areas only, where ashtrays are provided. If you are on the balcony, please be courteous of the people living around you and do not sit outside after 10pm. Do not smoke outside of the front of the building.

EXTRA GUESTS
No additional people in the house without permission, including friends, colleagues, or hired help. If extra people will stay overnight, we are happy to adjust the booking if there is space for them.

PEACE & QUIET
This is residential neighborhood with zero tolerance for loud noise. If you are noisy, the neighbours will not speak to you directly; they will call the police or the building management. In either case, this is a big problem. You will be asked to leave immediately and cover any costs that we might incur. So no parties, please, and turn down the music and TV after 10 pm.
