Great value accommodation close to attractions
We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, great value for long stay and close to lots of attractions including the lovely Ueno park and zoo. Can be quite noisy at times, especially in top bedroom o the 3rd floor due to proximity to the road, however nothing some ear plugs didn't solve. Walking distance to convenience and grocery stores and lots of options to eat out, also small well equipped kitchen to cook in. All the mod cons (washer/dryer and air con on every level). Bedrooms both have 2 x twin beds then there are 2 x fold out lounges, we had 4 adults in the house and did not feel cramped however would not suit guests with mobility issues due to stairs, single bathroom only on the bottom floor. Communication with the owner was very easy and fast and we were able to self check-in and out via a lock box. Highly recommended if you are looking for a clean and comfortable home, here you can experience living in Japan like a local.
Thank you for your stay at MAY house.
I am glad to hear you had a good time in Ueno area!!
Sorry for the noise on the 3rd floor...
I hope you come back to Japan and contact me again.
Great time in Tokyo!
We stayed here for 6 weeks over the summer and had a great trip. The house was very nice, provided a good amount of space, and was conveniently located. It was easy to get there from Narita airport due to its proximity to Ueno station, and the check-in was very easy. The house was clean and overall in great shape when we arrived, and we quickly made ourselves comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed for making simple meals and the counter seating worked well for our family, and there were two grocery stores very close by. Washer/dryer is a great convenience for a longer stay. We also appreciated the outdoor space on the top floor.
The bedrooms were simple and comfortable. A little more storage for clothes and other things in the bedrooms would have been helpful, but that is mostly because we were there for an extended period. There are also some drawers available for use under the stairs in the living room, which helped us stay organized. There is an AC in every room, which kept the house cool even when it approached 100 degrees F outside.
The location was very convenient. Nezu is a rather quiet neighborhood with some nice restaurants and interesting shops. Ueno park and zoo is about a 10 minute walk, and then the surrounding Ueno neighborhood (15 minute walk) has just about anything you could need. It is an easy subway ride from there to most of the major neighborhoods within Tokyo, and to Tokyo Station to leave the city. Nezu station is also right outside the door, less than a block away. The house is on a major road which also makes it easy to catch a taxi - we never waited more than about 5 minutes.
We were easily able to communicate with Ayako by e-mail, and she was very responsive when we had questions. There is also a helpful informational binder that tells how to work all the appliances and other relevant information.
Some other reviewers noted the noise from the street - there is some in one of the bedrooms and the living room, but it is reasonable and not beyond what one would expect in a major city. All of us, including our two-year old, were able to sleep through it without any trouble at all.
Overall, highly recommended.
Clean, roomy, and convenient to the subway, supermarket, and restaurants.
Everything you need for a cozy, comfortable stay. My daughters really appreciated the mobile hotspot!! Street noise is noticeable inside the house but not distracting, and the beds comfortable. The third floor outdoor space was especially nice.
Thank you for great review!
We really hope you enjoyed your stay!
Please contact us again when you come back to Tokyo someday.
Arigaou gozaimasu :)
a great place to stay in Tokyo
We really enjoyed our stay! The building is narrow, but it's pretty cool to have a whole house in Tokyo. The location is conveniently right next to the subway, and there are lots of shops and restaurants in the area. The facilities (kitchen, laundry, wifi, pocket wifi) were all great.
One small negative: It was very windy during our stay, which made the third floor noisy because of a rattling window. But the four of us fit easily on the second floor so it was no problem.
Thank you for great review!! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry for bothering your sleep due to 3rd floor's window. We will check and try to fix for future guests. Thank you for letting us know.
Please contact us again when you come back to Tokyo someday.
Best place to stay in Japan
This house is so adorable!! As noted on other reviews, you can hear the road noise. Our first night staying here was the only night affected by the noise, I think because we were getting adjusted from the time change from the US. The location is great for sightseeing multiple areas of Japan. The Nezu train station is literally a 3 minute walk. The Ueno station which we took from the airport was about 0.8 mile from here. Everything was provided to make our stay very comfortable. The air and heat in each of the rooms was awesome because we were able to customize our temperatures. It is a convenient walk to the Family Mart and 7-11. Lawsons is little longer walk at about 7 minutes. All of these provide delicious meal choices and groceries. We enjoyed having breakfast every morning around the counter in the kitchen. If we travel to this area again, we would definitely choose this house. It is an excellent value for what you get!
Thank you for wonderful review!

My wife and two daughters recently stayed here for a week. It was our first trip to Japan. We had a great time!
Like all holidays it starts with your accommodations. This house is wonderful and was perfect for the four of us. The location was really great. Near the park, two minutes from the train, and two grocery stores within five minutes walking. The portable WiFi device that is provided is a great add. We switched our phones to use the WiFi device and called friends and family back in America while seeing the city without incurring roaming charges. Finally Hisae was a great host. She met us on our arrival and helped with questions along the way. Thanks Hisae!
I did see the one review noting the street noise. I agree it is noticeable. We brought ear plugs and it was never a problem as a result.
Arigato Hisae! Cannot say enough good things. We will definitely stay here again. Hope this helps. Cheers!
Thank you for wonderful review!!
We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay.
Please stay here again when you come back to Tokyo!!
I am looking forward to seeing you again.
Yanesen is the collective name for the Yanaka, Nezu, and Sendagi neighbourhoods. It’s a great area to explore on foot and see the remnants of the shitamachi atmosphere of good old Tokyo—the traditional Japanese townscape and the friendliness and hospitality of the residents living there—all in the heart of the metropolis. This course takes a stroll through the classic shopping street, the symbolic mud wall of Kannon-ji Temple, and a famous shrine and gardens.
