The space
Welcome to our Japan home. We are the American-Japanese family that travels often. Happy Tokyo manages it for us while we are away.

Our apartment is quite spacious by Tokyo standards, with two comfortable private bedrooms and a separate dining/kitchen area for socializing or having a nice meal :) The toilet and bath area are separated for cleanliness and easy access, and there is a laundry machine in the apartment as well!

It is great for couples or families of four or five. There are enough beds for five, but it will be quite tight! Unless you want to experience the true meaning of Japanese-sized homes.

**FAQ**
CAN I CHECK IN EARLY AND/OR CHECK OUT LATE?
Usually, we cannot allow early check-ins and/or late checkouts because we need enough time to clean. However, it is possible depending on the other guests' schedule so please check with us before you arrive.

CAN I STORE MY LUGGAGE?
Usually, this is not possible because we need the room to clean. It *may* be possible if your luggage fits in the closet, but that is up to the cleaner. However, we do have information in our welcome guide (sent after booking) on where you can store your luggage.

HOW DO I FIND THE TOTAL PRICE?
To get to the final price, there are four calculations to consider:
1. The daily rate for the nights you are booking (you have to check the calendar for your nights--they can be different each night)
2. The number of guests (price increases per night with each guest)
3. The cleaning fee (paid once for the entire trip)
4. The Airbnb fee

DO I INCLUDE BABIES/CHILDREN IN THE GUEST COUNT?
Yes, please.

I CAN'T TELL FROM THE PICTURES THE ROOM SIZE. HOW BIG IS IT?
The apartment is 53 square meters, a fairly large apartment by urban Tokyo standards.

Guest access
+ You get the whole place to yourselves.
+ Freshly pressed towels and linens are provided.
+ Body wash, shampoo and conditioner are provided.
+ Hair dryer and iron are provided.
+ Free use of pocket/mobile Wi-Fi device in and outside the apartment.

Other things to note
As with some other Japanese apartments, there is only one sink.

Under Japanese law, all hosts are required to keep a record of all guests. This includes their name, home address, occupation and dates of stay. If your guest does not have a home address in Japan, you will need to collect a copy of their passport stating their nationality and passport number.

We own and use Happy Rooms to assist us in our hosting- one of the oldest and best hosting services in Japan. We want to assure all of our guests have the best experience possible. :-) We are LICENSED hosts, conforming to all the new legal requirements in Japan as of June 15, 2018. So no need to worry about losing your reservation!
