My husband and I stayed in this unit in Tokyo for around 5 nights in September 2011. We had planned to go to another location for 1 night but due to land slides, were unable to get to our planned accommodation. Without anywhere to spend the night, we contacted Ayako who was beyond accommodating in letting us stay an extra night at virtually no notice. Admittedly, we got a little lost figuring out which street to turn down to find the apartment but with the help of some friendly businessmen we spotted the hair dressers on the corner followed closely by the ever so convenient vending machine across the street.
Ayako arrived right on time to let us in and took us through all the important things about the unit. She has a fantastic guide on how to use all the electrical appliances and I was particularly amused with the fancy shower contraption. There is everything you can possibly need, we particularly liked having the washer/dryer handy. We didn't use much of the cooking gear as we always ate out (who wouldn't in Japan!) but the kitchen looked well stocked with everything you could need. The laptop with internet access was a huge bonus making it very easy to plan all the train rides and venues for each day's adventures.
When we first walked in we were very impressed. This may be a studio but it doesn't feel like it at all - it is so spacious! It was just the two of us but with the two double/queen beds you could easily sleep 4 without feeling really overcrowded.
The apartment isn't far to the JR loop line and is even closer to one of the local lines which admittedly we didn't use (having a JR pass). Right under the station there is a huge market-like shopping area which can definitely keep you amused. My particular favourite was a permanent stall right under the JR tracks selling bite sized crepes. I stopped in every day on the way home to get my fill for dessert and admittedly breakfast!
We could go on and on about the apartment but what made our stay particularly brilliant was Ayako! She helped me in planning the trip, which was a surprise present for my husband, even assisting in purchasing tickets that were only available on Japanese websites. From the welcome note to the little gifts she had left, everything was perfect. To me this support and friendly welcome is a priceless bonus you cannot get in a hotel.
We will certainly stay again when visiting Tokyo.
Thanks Ayako, we look forward to seeing you again!
We already stayed the second time in this apartment. What can I say? If you are looking for a perfect basis for your stay in Tokyo, you just have to book this place. It’s much bigger than a hotel –room and well equipped – even if you want to cook on your own. We just had our breakfast in our apartment and preferred to eat out. Okachimachi JR-station and Shin-Okachimachi subway-station are within walking distance and connect you conveniently and in short time with other parts of Tokyo. Convenience stores and supermarkets are also in immediate vicinity. Starting to explore Tokyo by foot right from the apartment is also a good option (Ameyoko-market, Ueno-koen, Asakusa/Senso-ji, Kappabashi dori and so on). Thanks again for your warm welcome. We will come definitely again!
My group and I stayed in the Tochirou vacation home in Ueno for 10 days. Getting in touch with the owner was as easy as can be, and she answered many of our questions without any problems. When one of our group members could not make our trip because of a death in the family, the owner kindly offered to work with us on the rental rate with one less person, but we still decided to go with it as was because of the great value and low cost.
Upon arriving in Tokyo, finding the property was easy. We were kindly greeted by Hisae when we arrived and given a tour of the rental property, along with a basket of treats.
The property itself is very spacious for a rental in Tokyo. We were notified ahead of time that being in the basement, there may be some noise from the flushing of water, but we never heard a single drop from the unit above during our stay. The rental has all the amenities you would need, and has a western style toilet for those folks who are not accustomed to eastern style squat toilets. The warm heat of the toilet seat is a welcome surprise after walking around in the brisk autumn air!
The location of the property is one of its best assets. It is central between Sensoji, Asakusa, Tokyo Skytree, and Akihabara. All of these are within a 30 minute walking radius from the rental.
In terms of value, this location is hard to beat. Being centrally located to some of the major sites and destinations in Tokyo, as well as the space you get for what you pay for makes this place hard to beat. For the amount we paid to stay here, we would have only been able to afford half the accommodations at a Tokyo hotel, and would have been less comfortable. This rental also gives you a look inside of what it’s like to be a local; it’s something I value when I bring friends and family to visit Japan, because anyone can go be a tourist and see all of the great sites in the country and live out of a hotel room. To get a feel for how everyday life is like in the city though, that’s where Japan imparts its greatest impression I feel, and you get that by staying at this property.
On top of that, the service provided by Hisae was outstanding! Not only did I gain a owner whom I will continue to book with when I return to Tokyo, but I also gained new friends who I will be excited to eat yakiniku with when I visit again.
Without any hesitation I will be recommending these rentals to everyone who asks me where to stay in Tokyo. Thank you for everything! じゃ、まったね！

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay there.
We 've got new friend too(^^)/
We are waiting for your returning to Tokyo in near future.
We love this apartment and we really felt sad leaving this house its our home in Tokyo. Its close to everything convenience store, restaurants there is a street just across the apartment where you can buy groceries, food, laundry etc. its one of my youngest son's favorite place. The nearest subway is just a five minute walk and can take you places of your interest. Me and my family wouldn't trade this over some fancy hotel. Neighborhood is friendly, quiet and very safe you can even walk in the middle of the night safely. Our Japan vacation is fabulous and one great factor is this house. We would surely come back here without second thought. Thanks Hisae!

My son chose to visit Tokyo for his 21st birthday and we decided to look for an apartment rather than a hotel, I am so glad we found this one. The booking process was easy and Ayako was helpful and informative with instructions from airport and trains. We were met by Hisae who welcomed us with answered any questions as well as leaving a lovely note and arrival basket also a small birthday gift for my son which was very touching. The apartment itself is lovely ,clean and well stocked, a real home away from home. The location is also brilliant, its in a nice quiet neighborhood but only a few minutes walk to 2 stations, you can also walk easily to Akihabara ,Asakusa or Ueno. All in all I cant recommend this apartment enough and we will definitely be returning in the future

I just spend last 10 days at this apartment. Ayako was very helpful on how to operate everything inside the room. Plus there is a English manual. Wifi is very strong in the room.
The apartment is well located, 3 min walk to Lawson, 7-11, a food street, and the Metro station of Oedo Line and TX. We used the apartment as the home base and toured pretty much all the major towns around Tokyo.
If next time I come back to Tokyo again and the apartment is available, I will not be hesitated to rent it again.

We have a vacation home in Taito-ku in Tokyo. It is a place that is perfect for strolling in Tokyo. It is convenient for transport. You can go to Asakusa in 2 minutes, Akihabara in 3 minutes by Tsukuba Express Line and go to Ginza in 13minutes, Shibuya in 29 minutes by Subway Ginza Line. You can also go to Akihabara in 25 minutes, Ueno Park in 20 minutes and Asakusa in 30 minutes on foot. Our room is close to Asakusa and Ameyoko. One of the few places that retains the old flavour of Edo is Asakusa. I recommend visiting the Kaminari-mon, or taking a stroll through the quiet back ways of the town. A little to the north in Ueno's Ameyoko, just listening to the hawkers and spruckers you can get a feel for the colourful, lively haggling that used to be the hallmark of the district.
