Interaction with Guests
It depends how much free time we have, but we mostly stay at home and working, we would like to have a talk with guests, we think that's the best point of airbnb. Guest can play music in the living room, and drink, cook anytime.
We can provide our casual dinner or lunch(vegetarian) on your request.
Please cover the expenses.
River and parks.
Only a few bars and cafe, never expect for shopping .
There is a highway bus to the airports from Tokorozawa and Kawagoe where is 3 stop from our Train Station.
The train is also going to Chichibu and Kawagoe.
Other Things to Note
If you have 5 minutes at train station in the airport, I recommend to get PASMO(prepaid card) at the ticket machine, call somebody, and ask how to get PASMO. It's too troublesome to buy tickets each time you transfer because in Japan, there are many private train companies. You may miss the train while you look for coins!
For example, the last train from Narita on weekday(taking local train, no extra charge)
