About Richard Ashley

Worldwide traveler and entrepreneur from Hawaii. Lived in Japan since 1995 so we have lots of insider information and contacts and are happy to put in extra effort assist our most esteemed guests in having a most memorable experience in this great country.

We are partners with JapanTourist.jp and you can find info on all of Japan as well as the local area around Tokhouse Vacation House searching Taito-ku, Bunkyo-ku and Skytree

Richard Ashley purchased this house in 2000

Why Richard Ashley chose Tokyo

We used to live in this house and love the experience of living in a local neighborhood in a house rather than a high rise apartment. The house was originally built in 1965 but we completely remodeled it inside and out. new roof, plumbing, wiring, walls, appliances etc.

Have a unique experience by living in a peaceful, safe Japanese neighborhood yet be only a few minutes from the main JR Yamanote train line and the Tokyo metro. Easy and quick, direct airport access in under 1 hour.

The most reasonable rates at the most convenient location.

This area is where history has been preserved and the modern thrives so you get the best Tokyo has to offer.

What makes this house unique

I love Japan and have lived here going on 18 years. I also like privacy comfort and convenience,. This location offers it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tokhouse is great value and very conveniently located just a short walk from the station with all the local shops and restaurants nearby. The house is spotlessly clean and fitted out with everything you might need. The host (Richard) is very accommodating and gave us a through rundown on how everything works and acted as a tourist guide with maps and information on places of interest around Tokyo. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

Warm welcome to Tokyo

  • 4 of 5

We stayed three nights at the Tokhouse. Clean, spacious and comfortable apartment and just 5 minutes to walk to the JR station. Supermarkets ans restaurants are just around the corner and a decent walk leads you to Ueno park.

The owner Richard did his best to welcome us: He picked us up at the station, gave us maps and showed us restaurants and so on. Highly recommended!

Thanks Richard, fantastic experience at Tokhouse

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic experience at Tokhouse in Tokyo. Great location to experience a slice of typical life in a great city. Short walk to the Yamanote Line giving east access to the city. Richard spent time with us on arrival and his tips for our week in Tokyo added to the experience. The house is in a quiet location but a short walk to authentic food outlets and supermarkets. We did not realise how good it was until the fourth day of our stay when we went to Asakusa (which was still a good experience) and saw the commercialised tourist area. If you want to experience friendly people and an authentic experience we highly recommend Tokhouse.

We are a family of four and have been at Tokhouse in July/August timeframe. We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment is equipped with everything that might be needed. Especially with aircondition in all rooms which cannot be emphasized high enough for summer season. The apartment was very clean and – important – very quiet. There are countless restaurants, convenience stores, supermarkets, … directly around and Nishi-Nippori station is just 3-5min walking distance away which directly connects to most of the hot spots by Yamanote line (included in JR pass :-) ).

Richard is a very pleasant, helpful,and responsive person and it seems he knows everything about Tokyo. Thank you so much for all the hints and tips and your patience with all our extra whishes.

We loved Tokhouse that much that we decided to come back after our little Japan tour what wasn’t planned before. We were lucky and one of the smaller apartments was available. Also this one provided everything we needed – very well-thought-out.

It is said most probably a thousand times here but we simply felt like home and can only recommend to stay at Tokhouse. If we ever come back to Tokyo we will for sure try to stay again there.

All the best, Susann and Uwe.

Hidden gem in quiet neighborhood in Tokyo

  • 5 of 5

The tokhouse was fantastic. We were a family with small children and had a friend join us too. So pleased we stayed here. Very convenient for exploring Tokyo. The house is traditional yet had all the gadgets and gizmos of the 21st century. We loved putting our futons each night and setting the screens to separate the room for privacy.

The house was very clean and well equipped. There is a supermarket ls around the corner across the road and it is very close to the station. There are great restaurants in the area too. Would stay again!
