Just a few Notes to inform.
1)We are friendly, open minded and opens our door to the world.
But hope for understanding.. we received a lot of guests emails.. so we hope for kind guests with photos and self introduce. (not just hey, do you have rooms or do you have towel/shampoo/iron/hair dryer) YES we have, because we live here.
Also please take note we live 10 mins walk from JR station.
By (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) map is 10 mins walk so if you feel 10 mins walk is far please don't tell us after you have stayed because we wrote below on the distance.
Once you have land in Narita or Haneda please inform us.
Checking in you can come by yourself but we can meet in station if time is allow. But please be patient because we have Miya and she is not walking fast. If you can come to our house by yourself is much appreciated.
We realized if we sometime wait for guest one hour we never complain but worried but guests wait 10-15 mins said we took time to come but they didn't know we have a baby and is not easy if you know. Actually they can come by themselves but we are kind we don't hope guest lost.
Sorry maybe we sound not welcome but actually we are sad because we did our best but not appreciated.
And we don't do pick up by car.
Please don't expect this because in Tokyo we usually walk.
We receive some guests ask us to pick up or send to station. It is ok if time and weekend available.
No washing and laundry in our house because space is limited.
One minute across the street has a coin laundry
We will not in tolerate with uninvited guests. Guests not allow to bring friends home. Please respect this as we hope safety for your child.
In recent case a girl bring a man home without informing us and she thought we were sleeping but one of us came home late and found out.
It is not very nice as it is manner to inform in advance.
We hope guests are easy going/understanding/polite/clean.
We are not hotel/hostel/ please use toilet in good way and follow instruction for things around to use.
We are a family here to welcome you to our house and culture.
We have house rules but it is common/general example:-
#Kindly don't talk loud at night on webcam/phone because Japanese house or neighbour are very quiet. We don't hope neighbour call police (=__='')
#Kindly don't use things around without asking us.
This is because we can prepare if you tell us.
Example if you want to use the fridge, tell us and we can make space.
Don't buy many many foods and later find that cannot fit in our fridge.
