    I'm now especially looking for people who can speak at least two languages from (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish) fluently.
    Of course other people also can apply, but there is less possibility to have a bed.
    Basically minimum one month, and maximum 2 months.
    ---------------------------------------------------
    I'm busy, so, sometimes I can't reply. If you don't get a reply, I'm really sorry but please do not wait for my answer and find other hosts.
    I usually have time on Tuesday & Wednesday daytime, so mostly I reply to messages on these days.
    If you think you are interesting and have many things to talk about (life experience), please, don't hesitate to send me a message :)

    --------Experience the lifestyle in Tokyo!---------

    ---------------------------------------------------
    Over 200 people have joined so far, some of them start living in Japan after, some of them got a partner from here.

    You can have one or two months experience of life in Tokyo!

    I will offer you "a house to live", "friends to enjoy together", and "things to do".
    Through this project, I hope you will like Japan more than before coming.

    The basic description is, stay at my shared apartment and explore Japan with friends (or yourself),
    then talk with Japanese people about what you did or what you want to do.

    1:House to live
    I have a shared apartment in Shinjuku city in Tokyo.
    It is a very convenient location to travel around Tokyo.

    2:Friends to enjoy together
    Over 10 people join this project at once.
    They live togheter (house for guys and girls are in a different location though),
    so very easy to get along with and able to make a lifelong friend.

    3:Things to do (talk session)
    I'm managing a language cafe near the house, and most customers here speak
    English very well. Talk with them about what you did in Japan, and get more
    information about Japanese places or culture in English or some other language.
    The cafe has customers in various kinds of work, from many generations and from all over Japan,
    You can know their lifestyle or way of thinking, and you also can be a friend with them.

    Every month I will make some cultural event for you.
    Ex.)Japanese traditional tea ceremony with a professional teacher, join Japanese festivals,
    Go to a traditional Japanese restaurant and see how the food is prepared etc.

    Talk sessions are just 4 days in a week, 3 to 5 hours per day. (15~20hours per week, depending on the room condition).
    Just talk with Japanese people in English or some other language which you can speak.
    Sometimes people who can't speak these languages join, in that case you may speak
    slowly, and make easy questions for them.
    You will have plenty of time to explore Tokyo!
    Every week you can get 2 non-session days in a row, which let you go for a small trip to other parts of Japan.
    (Using a night bus is good for low budget travel, I can arrange a bus if you want!)

    --Talk session hours--
    Mon - Fri: 3 or 4 hours between 1pm - 4pm or 6pm - 11pm
    Sat: 3 - 5 hours between 1pm - 11pm
    Sun: 3 - 5 hours between 1pm - 6 pm
