Our family (two adults and three teenagers) stayed at Ryoko and Kelly’s apartment for 6 nights in July. We were extremely pleased and felt at home at Itoh’s place. It is a perfect base from which to explore Tokyo.
The apartment is very spacious with one double bedroom, another bedroom with up to 4 beds and a large living space and kitchen. The apartment has everything you will need: well-equipped kitchen, washing machine & dryer, air-conditioning, very good WiFi, lots of travel guidebooks, maps and brochures. Everything was very clean and well functioning.
The location is great. It is about 10 minutes to Meguro Station where you can take the Yamanote Line that reaches all major areas of Tokyo. Meguro also has many shopping, eating and entertainment options. There are also 2 metro lines about 10 minutes from the apartment. Itoh’s place is located in a very quiet residential neighborhood. We loved to walk around in the morning and see how the locals live. The apartment is 3 minutes from a major street where you can find restaurants, convenience stores, etc. There is a very good supermarket 7 minutes away.
Ryoko and Kelly were wonderful and warm hosts, always willing to help. They live next door and speak perfect English so it is very easy to communicate. Ryoko and Kelly provided us with great tips on Tokyo sightseeing and other guidance. It was a great pleasure to stay at their apartment and get to know them.
