Lp and John were the best AirBnB hosts I've ever had. By far!
Their place is wonderful and large by Tokyo standards, their recommendations are extremely helpful and they themselves are some of the warmest, friendliest people I know.
From drawing custom maps and little HowTos to taking me out to dance on a weekend, I had a truly great time with them.
We had the most wonderful stay at LP and Jons place. They greeted us with a warm welcome in their truly awesome apartment-which is situated in one of the best and coolest places in Tokyo, Harajuku. They gave us a lot of tips throughout our whole stay; good shopping, nice restaurants and cool bars. They even invited us to go out with them and their friends! We absolutely recommend their accommodations for a good stay in Tokyo!
I stayed in the Shibuya studio for a week & could not have been happier.
Lp & John were helpful from when I first began enquiring too when I arrived in Tokyo :) The studio is clean, cosy and very central however I did not have any problems with noise. I felt at home & safe in the studio & would definitely stay again! Lp & Johns kindness & knowledge made my trip very special :) thank you Lp & John!
LP and John were great hosts! The area near harajuku was super exciting and very nice. LP and John drew me a map with all informations of the sourrounding area. The knew everything, I could ask them all I wanted. LP made a very nice informational sheet how to get there and what to do. They showed me some good restaurants and did reserve one resetaurant for me (Sazanka, Hotel Okura,Teppan-yaki restaurant). The second night Lp cooked for us, and it was great, they made a lot of different things to eat. In the meantime John and I played a korean monopoly. We had a very nice time together, and 3 days weren't enough. So I will have to go back. In exchange of their kindness I taught them how to bow a tie :) they were very talented.
So all together it was a great experience and they were cool hosts. Only minus point is maybe their sleeping rythm :) But as a tipp, all the shops and coffeeshops don't open before 11am, so go out late, sleep long and have a great time.
The appartment was very nice, I loved how LP did it. There were alot of drawings of LP, she is a great artist.. the cat is cool. She likes to run..
The room is small, but you have enough place for all your stuff, and you even have a small balcony. The area is in a very good position.
What can I say - an AMAZING apartment, AMAZING location and most importantly AMAZING hosts.
From the second the booking was confirmed - when I was sent a 5 page illustrated pdf covering everything you need to know before getting to Japan complete with very detailed illustrations on how to reach the apartment - to the extremely personal hospitality given by LP and John - everything was considered and made my trip to Tokyo a pleasure.
All I can say is STAY HERE! You won't regret it.
LP and John are, simply, the perfect guests.
Maybe i can stop here, cause the word "perfect" is the only that can explain my feeling once come back in Rome from my japanese trip, but i wanna explain.
I had the occasion to see all the three opportunity to stay in Tokyo that LP and John gives to people (two apt/studio and also their house) and one is better than other. The apts are full of creativity on every wall, are comfortable, clean, so intimate and you really can feel yourself at home, and this is one of the most important thing.
They are all very near to the "heart" of the city (two steps from Harajuku station), but in the same time quiet and calm, and very easy to find (but really hard to leave :)
And, let talk about the most important thing: LP and John! What can i say: just that i feel to have found two new friends.
This kind of people give to you an energy and a kindness really hard to find: they are sweet, easy, creative, interesting, funny and helpful (they give me tons of advise and maps and suggestions).
It will something i'll never forget and i feel so lucky for the occasion to have met them and to stay in their PERFECT house.
Random things LP and John did for change my trip into and unforgettable trip:
• they let me know one of the most tasty and amazing restaurant i ever tried, on the fourth floor of a building where you can have a breathless view of night tokyo and some of the most delicious japanese recipes you can have;
• they give to guests a fundamental device: the portable wi-fi, something that will became your best friend, when you will be "lost in translation" (i know this is very "technical", but believe me, it's really an added value);
• they present me their cat Psycho, i fall in love with that adorable hairball;
• they give me so pure and authentic smiles and let me remember what's the real meaning of a trip: know new friends, not only new cities.
