Get News reports that Tokyo’s Asobisystems designed this Airbnb pad, which is its first “Moshi Moshi Room.” Located in Harajuku, the apartment’s theme here is sakura or cherry blossoms. It has four beds and can host up to six guests for 45,000 yen ($398) a night.

Asobisystems is perhaps best known for being the force behind stuff like this:

The company plans Harajuku events and manages artists like Kyary Pamyu Pamyu as well as Yasutaka Nakata, who produced this track (and the rest of her music), and Sebastian Masuda, the fashion designer known for his Harajuku stylings. This is some serious cute street cred!

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

I thought I read something about Japan starting to hate on airbnb listings. Was this only going to affect certain locales or have final decisions not yet been made?
