With an overwhelming amount of travelers in Tokyo and relatively small amount of hosts, it's only natural that it's very difficult to find a couch here. Many people send many requests only to receive as many "no"s or simply no reply. That's because the hosts here are often bogged down with more emails than they have time to answer.
Tokyo life is also famously busy and stressful, so CS is hard to prioritize for many working hosts.
The main Tokyo group frowns upon couch requests because it takes away the personalized nature of the CS experience. However, we understand the difficulty for travelers and want to make things work as smoothly as possible for everyone.
That's where this group comes in.
Feel free to post when you're coming, what days you will need a couch, and any other information you think will be helpful for potential hosts.
Hosts that are interested can browse this group anytime and they might contact you to host. There's no guarantee, but it never hurts to try, right?
