My family, consisting of myself, wife, and adult son stayed here in early June 2014 during the first phase of our first visit to Japan. We couldn't have done better than to stay at Sumire House while in Tokyo. I had a good feeling well before our arrival in Japan as the Owner/Property Manager Akiko offered to help us with getting tickets to Skytree or any museums we planned to visit. We didn't take her up on it, but she and her husband met us at Oshiage Station upon our arrival in Tokyo and walked with us to the property. Akiko showed us everything and gave us the rundown on transit, etc. The property is just steps from a bus route that will take you to Asakusa where there is a lot of shopping and places to eat. In less than 15 minutes you can walk to Skytree where there is a huge new shopping mall and the train station. This was the perfect place for us and we definitely want to stay here again. Everything in the home is very clean and in good working order. The washer/dryer was an especially nice feature. We highly recommend this gem for it's convenience, cleanliness, and for the wonderful owner/property manager. There is a nice Food Mart steps away where you can get coffee every morning. If you stay here try the Okonomiyaki restaurant just down the street or the Sushi restaurant right around the corner. If you don't want to walk too much, take the bus to Asakusa and get on the subway there instead of walking to Oshiage/Skytree.
Thank you Akiko and Hide! We look forward to seeing you again!
