Interaction with Guests

[We love to chat!]
Josh will meet you at our nearest station to greet you and guide you to our place. There might be few occasions we can't greet you at the station, but we have detailed instructions and note for your self-check in.

Josh will also give you a brief introduction of Tokyo and what to do based on your interests and schedule upon arrival. But of course, we respect your privacy, so if you'd like a quiet time we will leave you alone:)

We live in the other bed room located the other end of the house. So, we can hang out on our balcony and invite you to whatever activity we are doing if you'd like. We love to meet new people!

We can be very flexible, but also have busy lives in Tokyo. We usually get few chats with most of our guests and even few drinks if our schedule match! There might be time to time one of us or both of us are away, but we can be always reached by phone, email, social apps:)

  • Staying with Mika and Josh was great. Their apartment is immaculate and the view is amazing. We only stayed there one night but when I go back to Tokyo I would definitely try and stay here for a longer period of time. Josh is a wealth of knowledge about things to do in Tokyo. We were very lucky to have stayed on the night that Mika and Josh were hosting a dinner so that was a blast! I highly, highly recommend this place for a very clean, updated, and comfortable place to stay.

  • Great place! 1. Josh is a incredibly friendly, helpful host, and a nice easy going (website hidden) is nice, just like the pics. Other than the basics, some nice bonuses; lovely terrace, high tech bathtub which I used, and the portable wifi (amazing stuff) etc. Apartment is between Meguro and Gotanda so I used either stations depending on where I'm going. Perfect.

  • Josh is the man! I had an amazing (email hidden) (even though Mika was away) It's superbly positioned, and Josh had a wealth of knowledge to share. Pocket WIFI was perfect.

  • HOST: Mika and Josh were responsive to our questions. They made our room very inviting and warm. Great coffee!!! Josh left us very useful and funny instructions about using appliances and the bathroom. They had some good suggestions about how to spend time in Tokyo. We were very comfortable sharing their apartment.
    APARTMENT: Beautiful space. Great views from the 14th floor. If you are into sunrises, hang out on the balcony. We enjoyed our morning coffee and breakfast there.
    NEIGHBORHOOD: Quiet, residential and safe. Easy access to taxis, trains and restaurants.

  • We stayed with Mika & Josh for a week and had a wonderful experience. The location of their apartment is great and it's just a 5 minute walk to a station on the main railway line. The views from their balcony are also wonderful and we enjoyed looking out over the city both in the mornings and when it's all lit up at night. The room was very comfortable and Mika & Josh were so quiet we almost never knew they were also in the apartment. They were both very friendly and informative and Josh even gave us a quick Tokyo orientation when we arrived! On top of that, they let us use their washing machine to do some laundry and their great, deep soaking tub for when we came home at night exhausted (but happy) after being on our feet sightseeing all day. We recommend a stay with Mika & Josh and we'll definitely be looking them up the next time we're lucky enough to visit Tokyo.

  • Josh is an amazing host: he sat us down and gave a great overview of Tokyo, he has all the messaging apps if you have any questions and is responsive within a couple hours if not immediate. Their included portable 3G Wi-Fi was incredibly helpful because I never figured out how to get a SIM for my iPhone. The apartment is quite clean and well equipped and comfy and private space was not a problem at all.

  • Mika and Josh are awesome and their apartment is really cool!! This was the best accommodation we had during our Japan trip. The room is wonderful with a great terrace and a wonderful view. We slept with open windows and had no problem with noise.
    Mika and Josh are very helpful and wonderful hosts. They caught us up from the station, give us a lot of information for our trip and exploring Tokyo. Unfortunately we just had 3 (email hidden), so we missed to had a few drinks at the common terrace with them. Next time :)

    May 2014
