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 are vegetarian (no meat&fish).

Other Things to Note
I recommend to get PASMOorSUICA(prepaid card) at the Train 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!
