The Space

**Note**
We are happy to host travelers from all over the world. However, due to a security reason for my wife (She doesn't feel secured with only male in our place), we can only accept female travelers and female-male couple travelers.
In addition, please give us your information like photos, profile and age (roughly), because we can't share our private lives with unknown people.
Thank you!

**Our place**
Our room is on the upper floor of a high-rise, modern and luxury apartment building with a great view of Tokyo bay and Rainbow bridge.

I am living in this place with my wife and our lovely toy poodle. If you can take care of our dog when you have time, it is really appreciated.

You will enjoy a beautiful view of Tokyo bay from your room.
Our place is quite spacious by Tokyo standard, about 110 square meters (1120 square feet) with 2 bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a shower room with a bath tub, a powder room, and a restroom.
In the living room, you can relieve the tiredness of your journey with a high-tech massage chair.

It is within walking distance (approx 7 min) to the JR Tamachi station on the Yamanote line and the Keihin-Tohoku line, the Mita station on the Asakusa-subway line and the Mita-subway line, and also to the Shibaura-futo station (5 min) on the Yurikamome line (Monorail).
It is very close to the central Tokyo (Shibuya, Roppongi, Harajuku,Ginza, Shinagawa, Odaiba etc...), as well as Shinkansen-station (Shinagawa,) and Haneda airport.

Also, there is a shuttle cruiser (water bus) stop on foot of our apartment. You can easily access to Odaiba, Toyosu, or Asakusa even from the water!

Our neighborhood is quiet even it is located in the center of Tokyo.

A supermarket is connected to our building. A nearest convenience store is 1 minute away on foot. There are many restaurants on the way from the station to our place.

If you were to sight see Tokyo, this would be the right place to stay!

We offer one extra-room with one sofa-bed and futon.We have to share a living room, kitchen, shower room and bathroom.

*****We are both doctors and very busy especially in weekdays. So please understand not to make a super big noise during nighttime. We are up early in the morning.However, we can go hang out together for dinner or show you around Tokyo if we have time.

*****We work full time in weekdays and sometimes on (email hidden)erefore, when checking in during our working period, we have to meet after I finish work usually at around 7:00-7:30pm, sometimes even later.

Thank you!

  • I had an amazing stay at this apartment! Gen and Tomo are two wonderful people and I was so lucky they could spend some time with me. We went out for diner together and Tomo showed me some parts of the city that only insiders could find :) They both were very helpful in helping me plan my exploration of the city and gave me lots of interesting tips. I slept like a rose in the sofa bed. The apartment is beautiful, modern, has a splendid view and quite spacious and very well located for public transportation. And to top it off, they have this incredibly cute little dog that I wanted to take home with me :) Genzke and Tomo, I hope to see you again some day!!

  • Overall Experience :We had a very comfortable stay at Gen's and Tomo's residence in Tokyo. Both of them are very sweet and generous hosts. They made us feel at home :)

    Location : Their house is very conveniently located at a 7 -10 minute walk from the Tamachi subway (email hidden)is stop is on the Yamanote loop line that connects most of Tokyo's major stations and urban centres. This was a huge time saver since most areas of interest were just a couple of stops away.

    House Features : The house is very well upgraded with all the necessary appliances and very clean. It offers beautiful water and rainbow bridge views. Gen was sweet enough to let us use his kitchen for making breakfast each morning :)

    I would highly recommend their place!

  • Apartment exactly as shown online. Beautiful view, great location. Futon bed is small but very comfortable for two people who are relatively small too. Gen is a very busy man but was helpful with any questions we had before arrival and during our stay. We were able to have a nice chat in the mornings before he left for work and even grab lunch one day.

  • Gen & Tomoko are amazing hosts. They work very hard which gave me motivation to be more serious with my life. Their property is no doubt a spacious and fancy place, and their cute puppy greets you in the morning. This apartment is easy access from Tamachi station, so heading to this place from Haneda airport couldn't have been easier.

    I wanted to get to know Gen & Tomoko more, but timing didn't work out well. Hopefully I'll get my chance to meet them again to chitchat more! Thanks Gen & Tomoko.

  • We had a very nice stay at Gens and his wifes apartment. They helped us whenever it was needed and they are very friendly people!
    The place is just stunning with an amazing view from the 40th floor! Highly reccommended!!

  • Staying at Gen's was fantastic! Such a beautiful apartment with a fantastic view of Tokyo Bay and the Rainbow Bridge. And in a great neighborhood that isn't overrun with tourists. Also great to be near an actual grocery store - the rest of our trip through Japan, it was hard to find a place with all the things we needed to cook a meal. Anyway: Gen provided us with a very nice room. The futon was comfortable, and we really loved getting to know his cute puppy, PoPo!!

  • Staying at Gen's place was the best choice I've been made in this trip! The place was great to stay and to have a talk with Gen was fun.

    Gen's place is clean, modern, spacious, luxury, fully equipped and has a very fine view of Tokyo bay area. Also the night view is even more beautiful when a firework display took place in Odaiba district! No sooner had we arrived there at Saturday evening than the fireworks went off outside the window, which was so romantic :)

    If you want to be a friend with the local host during your trip, Gen would be the best host as well. He is very friendly and obliging. He is willing to get along with his guests if he's not busy and give a lot of information about Tokyo and Japanese culture.

    I highly recommend this place to people who are looking for the best Airbnb house to stay in Tokyo:)

  • Staying at Gen's place was fantastic! Gen and Tomoko have a beautiful apartment which is clean, very comfortable and has amazing views! The building is new, secure and very elegant. Gen was great at meeting me and keeping in contact, and showed me around the apartment. The room was large and there was ample room for me to store my things. There was also a great desk to work from. The apartment was closely located to Tamachi station (about a 5min walk) which made it very easy to reach all the sites of Tokyo. I will hopefully be able to come back and stay again in the future!
