    Female roommates prefer same gender, therefore we can accept only female.
    Please check our calendar before asking our available. When we have a guest there is no space for volunteer.
    We know our schedule of current month and maybe next month, but it's unsure from after next month.

    Welcome to our house. We're guys and girls who lives in 5 bed rooms house at central Tokyo.
    Our house is 2 stations from Ikebukuro and 6 stations from Shinjuku.

    this old house is located in quiet residential area but next towon is a small university town.
    There are many shops in there, good for hanging out.

    Current residents are I (Hiro) who is owner, Brazilan couple, Chilean, Germany, Mexican girls and two cats.

    About Hiro
    I read Couchsurfing (another hospitality website) on the internet.I didn't know English, I had never been to abroad. But I thought it's interesting to meet to foreigner.
    After I've hosted 100 people in six months in my apartment, I became to able to communicate to people in English without google translation. I went to several countries.I didn't know Tokyo is the biggest city in the world!
    then I moved to the old large house for living with people from different countries.
    I've hosted a few hundred people so far on CS but it's getting worse and worse so I'm here now.
    I'm here for meeting new people than seeking labor, we're suitable to traveler who need "a couch" one week.
