I like to think of myself as a nice person (smile)...

Kimberly is a lovely host--she is very responsive in her communications and provides very thorough directions to her home. The Kichijoji home is an example of a very old Japanese house, with character in a suburban area. If you are not used to old japanese houses in winter, however, do be prepared with lots of layers and huddling around a kerosene heater. Kimberly provdies directions on her favorite restaurants in the area, and provides towels and futon blankets and is very accommodating.
Kimberly, Sheila, and Yoda were very lovely and welcoming hosts. From our first evening, they made us feel not as though we were simply guests, but more like equal members in a shared space. We certainly hope to meet them again in the near future.
Heading to another country where you don't speak the language and don't really know how things work can potentially turn into a nightmare. However in the case of Kim's place in Kichijoji it was simply a dream... The place is even nicer then the pictures suggest, the location was great, Kim was friendly and considerate and she even stocked the fridge for us which was very kind of her. Not just did we find a great place to stay but I feel like I found a new friend in Japan. Truly a lovely experience.....
Kimberley and Sheila were warm and friendly people to host. They were quite chilled out as guests.
Must also add that I was impressed with their interest in Indian spirituality.
I would welcome them again.
Kimberly and Sheila are great people.
We had an adventurous time driving around exploring as a group and it's great they are so friendly and social and as guests, tidy and flexible.
Thanks for everything, it was fun!
Next time I need a place in Tokyo to stay myself, I will stay at their place in Kichijoji.
Kim is lovely and very polite.
Complied with everything that was agreed.
I hope she comes back soon.
I would welcome Kim and Sheila back anytime. They were a pleasure to meet, and left my apartment with lots of their love energy.
