Other Things to Note

[WHO I AM]
We just moved into this gorgeous penthouse in July 2013 and I already had number of visitors staying with us.

I am living with my partner Josh who is Australian. We are both going to MBA school, so lots of study and networking! He speaks a bit of Chinese:)

I am Japanese and work as a marketing professional in a hospitality industry. I studied in the U.S. for 5 years, so speak fluent English and Japanese.

Josh works from home, so he can be flexible to help you out when you need something.

We are very hospitable couple and our house is very welcoming atmosphere. We invite our friends to have BBQ on weekend and go to park and play football.

  • The room, location and bed were what we hoped for. The hospitality and helpfulness was above and beyond. Recommendations, explanations, directions: all really useful. The pocket WiFi was a life saver. They really embody what is best about Air BNB. Such a pleasure.

  • I will not repeat the positive accounts of previous reviews, I agree with all of them; the spacious room, the modern apartment & cleanliness, the bathtub, the very useful portable wifi. Even before we arrived, Mika had been super helpful purchasing Ghibli museum tickets, receiving & keeping some show tickets we had sent to the
    apartment, she even helped calculate our local transport needs. From the moment Josh met (email hidden)., he had been welcoming to us, Tokyo first-timers. We are a couple with 3 small kids, and we settled comfortably into the room that Josh had prepared per our request (1
    king bed plus 1 single). He looked in on us frequently, making suggestions on what to do and how to get to places. The terrace from our room was our favorite spot, we ate breakfast there every
    sunny day we had. The living room was also an added value because we
    were able to put our stuff there; baby-stroller, shopping bags, jackets; we practically had more space than in a hotel. I would definitely suggest the apartment to anyone staying in Tokyo. We stayed 9 days with them and every day we were glad with our decision. Our only regret is not having more time to hang out with the nice couple because of our own tight schedule. Thank you so much, Mika and Josh! I hope you are not too traumatized with our kids taking over your home. :)

  • I stayed for almost a week with Josh and Mika. Both were very prompt in responding to my questions prior to my arrival. Josh came to pick me up from the nearby JR station upon my arrival to Tokyo, which was very helpful. Their top-floor penthouse apartment is spacious (for Tokyo standars), is centrally located, and has a great view. The JR line is within walking distance as well as the subway line. The pocket WiFi was very helpful and came to my "rescue", many times, as I was trying to find my way through Tokyo. I recommend this apartment.

  • Mika and Josh were the perfect hosts. Super helpful and friendly, they helped us out loads with maps, tips and anything else we needed to know. Great coffee in the mornings and a great room, nice bed and awesome bathroom. Location of the flat was also superb - try the sushi place in Meguro station nearby. Josh has details.

    March 2014
  • Had an excellent but short time with mika and josh! I booked with them very last minute and they were very good with getting everything coordinated at last minute. The place was well located, easy to get to from the train, and had great views! They even gave me some exotic kit kats.

    March 2014
  • Josh & Mika are fantastic hosts. Great communication, friendly and they go above and beyond of their guests. Josh even gave me a neighbour of local area. Their top floor penthouse apartment is very centrally located. It is clean, comfortable, modern and has a great deck with a view!. Fantastic For access to transport and close to all the "IT" places around inner Tokyo. Shibuya/Shinjuku are very close by. Highly recommended to all. Don't look elsewhere. Thanks again J&M. Look forward again to catching up when next back in town! best, Alex

  • Loved the city view of the room and the room was bigger than I expected. I also loved the fact that they had a "walking wifi" available for me, which allows you to be online even when you are out the door. With the wifi you are sure you can never get lost, so that made me feel very comfortable.
    The hosts were very nice, explained numerous things to do and see and offered to come pick me up from the train station on the day I arrived. This also made me feel secure, since it is harder to find a home address than a large hotel. I was able to find the house by myself though, with their directions from Narita Airport.
    The location of the house in the city is great.

    February 2014
  • Stayed in mika & Josh's extra bdrm for two nights with a friend. Great decision. The apt is about a 5 min walk from a train station. Good access to all of Tokyo. The apt has all the cool tech bells & whistles I've only seen in Tokyo. Mika & josh were super friendly and helpful making recommendations for what to do & see. Staying here hands down beat a hotel experience for us.

    February 2014
  • Very nice place - modern and well connected to all interesting places in the city. Josh is very enthusiast and he will give you good advices to visit the city. I recommend this apartment.

    February 2014
  • Mika & Josh are truly amazing hosts. It was our first AirBnB experience and we couldn't of had a better one. After arriving in Tokyo during record snowfall bringing their transit system to almost a standstill, we met Josh at the local train station 3 hours after our intended arrival. Even though it was past midnight and freezing cold this did not deter Josh from greeting us with a warm Tokyo welcome. Their apartment is in a great location for getting around with major locations like Shibuya and Shinjuku only a couple of stops away on the yamanote train line. The apartment is very spacious for Tokyo living standards and very clean with everything you need to make you feel welcome. Mika and Josh are an easy going couple with a great attitude and aim to make your stay a memorable one. We have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and this nice couple to anyone traveling to Tokyo.
