The Space

We hope to meet all our guests. So far.. we have only missed 2 Singapore guests that we were unable to meet because we were away to our hometown to be with our family and the house is vacant. And we have noted it on our profile before we back to Fukuoka.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Kei and Kotoro are lovely persons. They welcomed us with their heart and did everything to make us discover their culture. We loved to chat with Kei and Kotoro about their country and their traditions. They are very communicative. Kei is a very good cooker and Kotoro help us to plan our trip. Their house is near everythings and the neighborhood very quiet. The bed is a futon and bathroom on the same floor, lots of privacy. Do not hesitate a second if you want to immerse yourself in Japanese culture. Dōmo arigatōgozaimashita Kei and Kotoro!

  • Because I took a short break to go to Osaka, I can write another review, yay! :D
    Well what more can I say, I always enjoy staying with Kei-San and Kotaro-San! :)

    June 2014
  • Kotaro and Kei were absolutely lovely hosts. They welcomed us right from the start and were very helpful with any queries we had on touring and food experiences.

    Their house was a great experience into seeing how Japanese people live and Kei cooked us some lovely traditional breakfasts which were delicious.

    We would love to come back and visit Kotaro and Kei (and Kero the tortoise!) again soon.

  • This time I stayed with Kei-San and Kotaro-San in their flat near Mejiro station (~10 minutes walk). Sometimes we went out to eat together, but also ate some really nice food at home with two guests from London! :) 焼肉はおいしいです!ありがとうございました!
    It feels like a private place, because they have their livingroom upstairs and you can hardly hear each other anyways. Kei-San also prepared nice breakfast for me and some farewell-onigiri, thank you! I would always stay here again! I hope to meet again for a nice meal, a beer, karaoke or anything else! Thank you for feeling me welcome and making this a nice stay! :)

  • Staying with Kotaro San and Kei San was the best thing that could have happened to us. Both of them are extremely kind and welcoming. They really go the extra mile to make sure you have a pleasant and memorable stay in Tokyo. Without them, we wouldn't have had such a wonderful time in this breathtaking country.

    Kei San was always there to help us. She is also an amazing cook. She cooked extremely delicious and healthy breakfasts for us. When we weren't feeling well she cared for us. Staying at Kero Kero House didn't feel like being on vacation but more like staying at the house of good friends.

    All of that led to the best vacation of my entire life. I can't express how happy I am to have met you both. Kotaro San and Kei San, thank you so much for everything you've done for us. We will remember our journey for life and hope to be back at your house soon.

  • Kotaro and Kei are brilliant hosts who have really committed themselves to making sure that their guests have a fine time in Tokyo. They go out of their way to accommodate guest requests and sometime even spend their weekends showing people around!
    Kei tirelessly shares information about Japan and its rich culture even though I'm sure she's heard the same questions many many times. Both of them are very open minded about other cultures and have a positive outlook on most things.
    They have really enriched our Tokyo experience which wouldn't have been quite the same without them.

    Btw Kei cooks the most amazing breakfasts. We were vegetarians and has a few restrictions but she didn't bat an eye. We had a different meal for breakfast each day that we stayed there and it was all completely vegetarian. I would also go so far as to say that it was th ebest Japanese food I've had in Tokyo!

  • Kotaro and Kei were the best hosts we've ever had!! So friendly!! So nice!! And so incredibly helpful!! They prepared delicious brekfast for us in the mornings and in the evenings we shared fun conversations and they showed us Tokyo!!
    The neighbourhood was nice and the place easy to find! The pocket-wifi was a lifesaver and the room was cozy and nice! We will definately be back at Kero-Kero House!!!! :D THANK YOU!!!

  • Thank you Kotaro and Kei, I enjoyed my stay and had an amazing time, or as the Japanese say Sugoi! My room was comfortable and clean with nice natural light and flowers right outside the window. The neighourhood of Shimoochiai, Shinjuku -ku was quiet, with easy access to trains and shops; it was convenient for me to pick up fresh fruits and snacks for picnic lunches. Breakfast was delicious; I like Japanese food. Kei asked what I liked and prepared many good things: rice, sushi, miso soup, rolled omelet, natto, nori, pickles and green tea. I asked many questions about things to do and how get around Tokyo. Kotaro and Kei were always helpful and gave good tips; they are friendly and like to talk and engage in activities - I had fun meeting them at the Shibuya scramble crossing to take photos and then share supper. I am glad I used Aribnb and stayed at Kero-Kero with Kotaro and Kei, truly a lovely experience. I recommend.

  • Kotaro and Kei really live up to their reputation as Super Host. My husband and I stayed four nights and now we wish we had stayed longer :( We love the cute house, the room is so comfortable and the Mejiro neighbourhood is conveniently located, yet lovely and quiet. Kei is a super cook, you really get the Japanese breakfast experience! I mean, as far as i know, no other hosts provide breakfast. Kotaro is very funny (but he doesn't know it). Above all, their hospitality made us feel at home and it was as if we were staying with good friends rather than at a paid accommodation. We will definitely go back to stay with them again.
    Kei, Kotaro, Kero, we miss you!

    April 2014
  • Kotaro and Kei are the best hosts I've ever met. Period. And I've met a lot of hosts around the around. Five stars on all fronts.
