Hi, this is Toshi, an English speaker. Welcome to this neighborhood and my home. This area is called YaNeSen(Yanaka, Sendagi, Nezu), and has preserved the charm by the tendency to re-purpose older buildings rather than rebuilding, as creating a contrast of old and new at the same time. My home is a big house in good condition even located in central Tokyo. I manage this house as living and enjoying sharing life. In a word, the best place to stay for travelers from the world.

The space
This house has big and nice shared living and dining room, and 5 bed rooms. One is for airbnb guest, the others are for me and others who live for long term share mates.

on the second floor, with a Queen size bed which is suitable for a couple(of course solo traveler is welcome), closet, handmade working table and chair, and air conditioner. It's very comfortable to have a rest on such a big bed after traveling around big city. Long term stay is also welcome.

GOOD for:
who is interested in local life, culture, people, cosy cafe & restaurant.

NOT GOOD for:
who is just looking for a place to sleep, not willing to communicate with host and share mates, and non english speaker.

Guest access
-- Welcome to use Kitchen, equipped with kettle, toaster, microwave, utensils, grill, etc. It's much bigger than usual Japanese size kitchen.
-- Relax in the Living/Dining room, on a big couch, a big table. Occasionally booked for using for meetings, photo/TV shootings, cooking lessons, or parties.
-- 1 shared bath room. Fill the spacious bath tub with hot water to enjoy a hot bath. It is perfect for relaxing after a long day out.
-- 2 Toilets.
-- 2 washstands.
-- Laundry room with washing machine.
-- Balcony(you can dry laundry here.)

Other things to note
- I won't accept any requests with no profile photo and no description of theirselves, and only accept english speaker.
- There are three Japanese share mates, who can speak English and communicate with people very well.

---About Me---
I used to work mainly in internet service field as a start-up member. I have founded a couple of companies with my business partners, or was involved some friends' start-up business. After i had been working so hard for years, i felt tired of such life. Now i have changed my life style to have more time for myself, enjoy accepting guests from the world, as being involved in some other projects. I need to visit and stay in Vietnam often for my work.

I'm looking forward to meeting people from all over the world! Let's share the time.

※ここは海外と日本の接点となるべく部屋を提供していて、オーナー居住型のシェアハウスですので、海外志向なく、交流を目的とせず、プロフィール記載もなく、情報をくださいと言っていても伝えてくれない、記載している内容を理解してもらえないでただ宿泊先を探されている日本人の方の宿泊はお断りしております。旅先のホストがいる場所に宿泊することで得られる体験から、85%以上の海外ゲストから5つ星評価を頂いておりますが、日本人の方の目的や評価視点が異なるため同様の評価も得られませんでした。そういったこれまでの経験からお互いのミスマッチを避けるためにこのようなことを記載させて頂くようになりました。ここのコンセプトとシェアライフに興味を持って頂ける方でしたら情報交換しましょう!

This is a remaining authentic downtown in Tokyo. A quiet neighborhood with one of the most vivid local market street in Tokyo, beautiful sakura-lined cemetery, plenty of temples, old and new indie cafes, restaurants, shops and stalls, some of which have passed down through generations, and art galleries, etc. They are within 3-20 mins walking distance. So now, here attracts visitors both Japanese and foreigners so much. Just lovely area.

- University of Tokyo (15 mins walk)

One of the main job now is to work as a business and team building facilitator in oversea business internship/competition and self-developing program for university students. It takes place in Vietnam so i need to stay there for more than three months every year. It's my oversea life. My life now is down shifted with less money, less stress, more time, more happiness. - Love food, cooking, sports, wood craft work. My travel England, France, Spain, Holland, Australia, Thai, Bangladesh, Korea, United State, Philippine, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam... I hope that i can meet people all over the world. As a host, i hope my guests would enjoy staying and have something special moment in Japan. I'd love to help it.
