Need housing in Tokyo, March 16-25

Notice: I and 3 colleagues would like to borrow an apartment in Tokyo from March 16-25, 2007 (or part of that time). 1LDK or larger is preferred, but willing to consider any. I speak Japanese and am well-familiar with local customs.

Low rent would be appreciated, or I can offer a stay at my house in Salt Lake City, near the University of Utah, at another time (when we're here). Come for the world-class skiing!

Thanks, Dave
