I am Yuji Oishi in Tokyo. I and my wife love traveling Japan and the world.
We like talking about travel, culture, life, etc of different countries.
yuji and akiko are nice host. they are very accommodating and clean. the house is extremely clean, new and modern. and we are required to take care of the cleanliness as well. the beds are clean and comfortable. however, the walls are not sound proof at all, and they can hear us across the hall from their room. so we have to avoid talking at night or they wont be able to sleep. during the night we are packing, we woke them up due to the packing noise and felt bad bout it. but they are very accommodating to us. other than quite many house rules to follow , it was a satisfying stay, value for money, and will recommend it to anyone..
Yuji and his wife is very accommodating. I had my luggage shipped from the airport and they helped me receive and send it back. So, I could be out and about. They also cooked a meal for my group. We had 2 rooms. The only problem was one of the rooms was warmer than others because of no AC. The rooms were very large for Japan standards. One room fit a bed and 7 pieces of luggage. The apartment was very nice and clean also. The location is not central Tokyo but it's only one train away from Shinjuku. I would stay here again when I'm in Tokyo.

Yuji and Akiko have been great hosts. It was a pleasure to stay with them, since they helped us with suggestions and places to visit. They are a very friendly and respectful couple; we shared a very nice japanese-italian dinner with them and enjoyed their company and food. The appartment is very clean and new. The room is very quite and with air conditioned (very important in summer days!)
Me and my boyfriend spent 14 days at Akiko & Yuji.
The apartment was very clean, spacious, and modern, with a nice shower, washing machine, air-conditioning, and a spacious kitchen we could make use of. The view from the balcony was also great, and the apartment is located in a nice neighborhood.(with the best japanese supermarket ever: Daiei) The nearest metro station is Higashi Ojima on the (green) Shinjuku Line and is about 7 minutes walk from the apartment. The nearest JR Station is somewhat further away around 2 km walk. But in general the location has easy access to the main sightseeing points.
Akiko and Yuji were nice hosts, even though it wasn’t always easy to have a casual conversation with them because of their somewhat limited English. They were always very helpful in answering our questions and really helped us a lot in making our planning. Also they took their time to have dinner with us twice.
They were very Japanese in their strong focus on cleanliness and indirect manner of communication. Initially this led to some culture clashes, so be aware of that. Once we got used to these cultural differences all was good.
It is a pity that Yuji was out of the house but his wife Akiko has been a great host. She recommended us food in the neighborhood and is always keen to help whenever we have any questions. The house is equipped with very comfortable beds, nicely designed bathroom and living room. The house is also always kept clean. The only drawback is the bedroom is located along the corridor and sometimes passer-by in the morning could wake us up. Other than that, it was a wonderful experience staying at Yuji and Akiko's house (:
Yuji and Akiko are great hosts as they are very friendly and helpful hosts. If you have any question to ask regarding to places, transportations and japanese culture, feel free to ask them and they are more than happy to answer your question. The house was clean and tidy and we put in our effort as well to maintain the tidiness of the house. The location of the house is probably not the ideal for whoever want to spend less time in traveling to town. However, it is still located along the shinjuku line which is convenient for getting around Tokyo, Disneyland and even Yokohama. Nevertheless, the experience of staying at Yuji's house was great and it is definitely worth our recommendation.
My first experience with Airbnb has been made wonderful by Yuji & Akiko. The apartment is absolutely spotless, cozy and very well maintained. Yuji and Akiko are very willing to share about their travel experiences and the Japanese lifestyles. Highly recommended if you are looking forward to friendly and genuine hosts :)
We had a very nice stay at Yuji & Akiko flat.
The flat is as new and well equipped.
They were very welcoming, we recommend them!
