A 65 year old traditional Japanese townhouse located in busy downtown, Mukojima, Tokyo. The house belongs to my husband who spent his childhood there. We are university professors, and the house was too small and old for us to live with our three children and lots of books, so we have never lived there. After 30 years, I found it quite cool as it has not changed into western style house, which is now rare to find in Tokyo.
The house was renovated nicely remaining its original taste. There are two bedrooms; one with a double bed and the other with two singles. The bedrooms on the second floor are floored with tatami mats. There are small but cozy living space and a kitchenette in the first floor. Bathroom with a bathtub and shower head. You will find the 'washlet' in WC.
Since the house was built right after WWII, everything is made small according to the Japanese peoples frame at that time. If you are way taller than 6 feet, you may find it a bit close and uneasy.
I am a retired professor who took her degree from Columbia university in NYC long time ago. My English is rusty now, but I think I can help you explore real Tokyo.
Akiko Yamamoto-Ebihara purchased this house in 1950
Traditional outlook and modern equipments. Convenient to get to Akihabara, Ginza, Asakusa, Shibuya, Shinjuku, or even to Nikko. Bus stop right in front of the house. Less than 10 minutes walk to two major train stations.
Though it is located close to Asakusa, the major tourists attraction in Tokyo, Mukojima area is not polluted with commercial tourism.
There is a famous Japanese style 'tea house restaurant' where you can see and enjoy Geisha performance with reasonable price.
How about having a day trip to Nikko, where one of the most famous shinto shrines in Japan is located? That was built for a tomb for Yeyasu Tokugawa, who started Tokugawa shogunate in 1603. From Sumire House, it is very easy to get to Nikko.
Kyoto enjoyed culture of court nobles with showy buildings and gorgeous eating/clothing habit while Nikko, the place where the top samurai is laid, has different taste.
