The guest area is a quiet, private room in a separate part of the apartment so there's a comfortable level of privacy. The room’s main feature is a library of Japanese photobooks. My goal is to help make Tokyo a photography destination for snappers, photo-nerds, book collectors, researchers, and people excited by Tokyo. I really enjoy meeting people with these interests. My place is good for couples or solo travelers looking to explore Tokyo's visual cultures with a boutique-y space.
