    At the center of October 2018, I spent a couple of days and nights at the house of Kana and her husband. It wasn’t the first time I did home-staying, so I was pretty sure the experience would be great. Especially judging from the first contacts we had which were pretty nice. Booking and all the considerations beforehand were taken care of in a pretty smooth way and communication was great.
    But – as often when I am on the road, the start always gets a bit messy. I don’t know. I always get lost in translation. The same case here. Being lost in the mixture between metro and JR, and arrived at some place somewhere else. I don’t even know how I ended there.
    No problem – Kana was at home and even on the way to her house, we were in touch, and she guided me through all the chaos that normally surrounds my travels until I finally arrive. Phew. What a start.
    The house itself is cozy and sweet, having space and rooms for the guests as well as for the family, and at least for me, it felt very comfortable. On one hand, I had my free time and my space, where I could do what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do my stuff, on the other hand, I was always free to have a chat with Kana, her guests and her husband. I never had the feeling I would disturb anyone, and the open-minded aura, that Kana radiates, makes you just comfortable to be around her.
    The place itself is close to Ochiai-Minami-Nagasaki Station, as subway station that is served by the Toei Oedo Line. From there, you can take the train into the direction of Nerima or Shinjuku, which makes the station quite a convenient place to travel from.
    You will find small convenient stores and a street restaurant next to the station, which makes it quite easy for you to get stuff for your daily life or just enjoy a fast dinner in the evening.
    The house is located near an elementary school, which has no effect on the guests so far, but is quite interesting as even from the outside you can witness differences of the Japanese school system to – for example – the European school system.
    All in all the area around Kanas house reflects the wonderful atmosphere you experience at her home.
    I absolutely enjoyed my stay there and - assumed the dog doesn't vote against it - I will come back some day.

    My Vacation to Tokyo was a life-changing experience. Such a Beautiful City, with so much to see. But what really made my stay in Tokyo to an experience, I will never Forget, was staying at Kana and her Family. During my stay I allways had the Feeling that I am a Part of the Family. I was and I still am totally overwhelmed, receiving so much kindness and love. I wish that I could have been at Kana for a much longer time. Thank you very very much for everything Kana, and I hope to see you as soon as possible.

    そのような人生を変える経験をありがとう。 たくさんの愛とおもてなしをありがとう。 私はあなたの家族での滞在を決して忘れません。 できるだけ早くお会いしましょう。素晴らしい時間をありがとうございました。私は本当にあなたがいなくて寂しいです、リコとイサオ。お会いできることを楽しみにしています。 世話をする!

    Kana à été un ange avec moi tout le long, c'est une très bonne hôte. De plus sa maison est très bien situé, pas loin du metro, et avec un petit sento très sympa à proximité. Vous pouvez vous rendre chez elle les yeux fermé.
    Kana, again thank you so much for everything.

    Kana, her husband and her dog were a very nice and friendly host family. Because of Kana the stay in Tokyo was so special and I felt from the beginning very well in the house.
    It was a real pleasure to stay at Kana's house and I would recommend anyone who has the chance to book a room at this host family as well. You certainly will not go wrong with that.

    Thanks again Kana for the many tips and great experiences with you. I wish you and your family all the best and hope that we may meet again someday.

    Greetings from Austria,
    Eric

    Kana is a very nice and helpful host. I got sick during my arrival and Kana helped us to contact a Doctor who could speak English. Thanks to that I recovered very fast. Our stay was uncomplicated and pleasant. We haven't seen Isao much, but he seems to be a very nice guy too. We recommend having them as hosts. Ps. their dog is very cute

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
