The space
★*:.★*:. Must Read 2 .:*★.:*★
*:.Your private room is disinfected by Ozone generators  as a whole from things you can touch to the ceiling and air before check in .  There is two toilets in our house. Then you don't share toilet with us. We disinfect two toilets and a bathroom every time or always as much as possible. We use Ozone generators , Chlorine dioxide, Hypochlorous acid and Alcohol appropriately.  I think the efficacy is Ozone > Chlorine dioxide > Hypochlorous acid > Alcohol.   You can ask us stop using some of them. You can ask us use  Ozone generator everyday. You can choose Ozone generator for business or home. The business use one is strong but it can be used only when no one is in your private room. If you want you can bring home use one outside. However, I think home use one is not effective for outside.
*:.We don't want to be a owner of rented room . We would like to be your friends or host family.
*:.We might not accept changing reservation dates.
*:.Shinjuku-sanchome station 8 min on foot / Shinjuku station 15 min on foot
*:.Breakfast is not included, but we enjoy Japanese casual evening meal together, if it's convenient to both.
*:.Digital Lock System for your private room.
*:.When you check-in, I will meet up with you at Shinjuku-Station EXIT B4 in front of Isetan department store. Then I will take you our home. The point of the map is meeting point EXIT B4.
*:.Our home is located 5 min away from Shinjuku station EXIT E1. However, Shinjuku-sanchome station ticket gate 8 min on foot / Shinjuku station ticket gate 14 min on foot. It takes 1~10min from ticket gate to train platform additionally. Because Shinjuku station is a huge labyrinth. You should ask host "What point of the station is your 〇〇min from?" Many host's description is from a EXIT. You should pay attention. In fact small stations are more convenient for visitors. Small station's platform, the ticket gate and exits are almost same. Additionally, it's less likely to lose the way.

Grutt Pass ぐるっとパス

It is recommendable to buy “JAPAN RAIL PASS" if you wish to travel around Japan for a certain period. All you can ride Shinkansen (bullet train) for 7 days: 28,300 yen, 14days: 45,100 yen, and 21days: 57,700 yen. You cannot buy it in Japan, so please purchase it before you come to Japan.

Electric goods
