About the Homestay
My cool little apartment has one nice vacant tatami room. A warm and spirited pied-à-terre, ideally located at a 5 minute walk from Asakusa! Enjoy the delicacies of traditional Tokyo atmosphere, or access the whole city via a good subway connection!
Hop in and out easily with a direct connection to both Narita and Haneda.
With a double Futon, this room is particularly adapted for couples.
The main appeal of the room is it's great location ; The tatami flooring and rice paper screens giving it a true Japanese touch.
You will have shelves to put your clothes, but the room contain also a wall shelf with some of my personal belongings.

As a Japanese house:
No shoes inside
No smoking inside
And I ask males to sit when they go to the toilets. that may sound restrictive, but it makes the cleaning a lot easier :)
Smoking is not allowed.
This is a great apartment, well located and has a good amount of space. We didn't see the hosts much but that wasn't a problem. We had a really good stay.
It was a nice experience to stay at Josephs tatamiroom. He is a very nice person and he helped us with a lot of information.
Thank you Joseph

Très bonne localisation dans Tokyo
Joseph et sa copine sont des hôtes très sympathiques !
Joseph is a really cool guy and great host. I stayed at his place for 6 nights. Joseph gave me very detailed instructions on how to get to his place from the airport. I also appreciate the fact that he was available to give advice whenever I had questions or needed something. His room is really cool and private. The location couldn’t be better, many things are available around his place including the station. I highly recommended this place. Thanks again Joseph!!
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Très gentil hôte Joseph, très belle petite maison, très bien situé. Vraiment je recommande !
Very friendly, great communication, lovely traditional place that is fantastically situated! Totally recommend!
Jolie petite maison traditionnelle ! Localisation parfaite ! Un train direct depuis l'aéroport d'Haneda donc bien pratique quand on débarque. Je recommande
