We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sumire House, and would definitely hope to return in a heartbeat on our next trip to Tokyo!
Akiko's very thoughtful gestures extended to having her assistant meet us at the train station upon our arrival. It was great to have a quick orientation of the house and neighbourhood by her lovely assistant Mana, who spoke beautiful English.
We were touched by the warm hospitality, including touches such as heat packs, bottled water and even all the paraphernalia for sending parcels home: marker, twine and tape!
We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the neighbourhood and finding gems in all the eateries we visited - yummy food that we hope to return to again and again.
Besides Family Mart, we made daily visits to the supermarket nearby. We love the easy access from and to Narita airport, the bus ride to Asakusa and Kappadashi, which Akiko kindly included a timetable for.
The Sumire House is beautifully maintained, with a modern bathroom. It contained all that we needed for our family of 2 adults and 2 young boys.
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful guesthouse, Akiko!
