Mukojima House Rental Photos and Description
Two bedrooms; one with double bed, another two singles, perfect for a family
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.

What makes this house unique
Though it is located close to Asakusa, the major tourists attraction in Tokyo, Mukojima area is not polluted with commercial tourism.
