Our duplex is located in an upscale residential area, seven minutes' walk from Meguro station on the JR Yamanote Line, seven minutes' walk from Shirokanedai Station on the Nanboku Subway Line. It is ten steps to Minato -ku.The first floor is refurbished. It is like a de luxe hotel suite.
It is also good for expats to stay for house hunting. An ASIJ bus stop is just two minutes' walk away.
Many restaurants, shops, supermarkets are within walking distance. Our duplex is much closer to Meguro Station than Sheraton Miyako Hotel. Ebisu Garden Place, Westin Hotel, museums and parks are in the neighborhood. Platinum Street like SoHo in NYC is five minutes' walk away. Beautiful neighborhood.
Japanese empress's birthplace , now a garden called Nemu-no-ki-no-Niwa open to the public is also five minutes' walk away. And nearby is a Japanese garden tourists never know.
Catering from many famous restaurants is also available
I went to graduate school in MA. My husband used to be a radio newsman in Minneapolis. Our two children went to the American School in Japan(ASIJ). Our daughter is working in D.C. and our son is working in San Francisco.
We have a summer house in Harbor Springs MI
It is in a great location in the center of Tokyo. Guests can enjoy living and dining like locals in urban Tokyo.
This duplex was just what we needed! A very short walk from Meguro station with shops, restaurants and bars nearby. Very convenient for our day trips around the greater Tokyo area, but offered us some respite and breathing room at the end of the day. This general area is not quite as crowded as other parts of Tokyo (which we appreciated).
The space itself was big for just the two of us, and could have easily housed 4 people. The wifi signal is very strong. It's fully furnished with all the kitchenware and bathroom amenities you may need. I especially loved the shower! Washer and dryer available as well.
I have nothing but praise for the hosts who go to great lengths to ensure their guests have a great stay. There are many guide books and resources available in the duplex but don't hesitate to ask the host for a recommendation or even help with making a reservation. They are well versed in English for those of you who are worried about communication. They gave us tips on the metro system which we got a hang of after the first day.
We had a wonderful time here and can't wait to come back! Highly recommend!
We couldn't have picked a better place to begin our Japanese adventure. Ryoko was a wonderful hostess, giving us all sorts of helpful information about the sights and restaurants in the area. It's only a short walk to Meguro Station and a host of restaurants, grocery stores (Don Quixote is a must), and shopping. The street is very Japanese, a bit hilly, and the charming apartment is spacious and quiet. One of the few places we stayed with a small coffee pot! Four of us stayed here with plenty of room to spare. The master bedroom bed is more like an American queen size. You can close the pocket doors. Photos are accurate in the description. Nice modern kitchen, and plenty of dishware is provided. (No dishwasher though.) I loved all the extra towels in the bathroom, the great shower and soaps, and the washer dryer. (Not many dryers in Japan.) We appreciated the air conditioing, because it was quite warm and muggy in October. Highly recommended!
Everything was as described and the setup worked very well for us. We enjoyed the neighborhood and our hosts directed us to good local restaurants. They were very helpful with all kinds of information. We wanted to do a day trip north to Kita Kami to see the cherry blossoms and they helped with our bullet train plans to do that. We had a wonderful trip striking off a bullet train ride and cherry blossoms in one go. We would probably use there knowledge even more than we did if we were to return. Ryoko even gave us cards for the subway and trains which was amazingly cheap and effective way to get around the city.
The property is spacious, well equipped, well maintained and conveniently located near the Meguro station.
The owners live next door. Ryoko helped us to find and book an excellent Ryokan in Hakone, advised us what to do and where to shop in Tokyo, suggested attractions that only locals know, and in general did her best to make our stay enjoyable.
We highly recommend the property - hope to stay there again soon.
We have just enjoyed wonderful hospitality in Tokyo. My husband and I and a friend-- all seniors-- enjoyed our 7-day stay . It was perfect in every way. We appreciated the comfortable beds, the full kitchen for breakfast, and eat-in dinners,and the spacious bathroom with soaking tub and shower. Everything is exactly as it looks in the pictures.Also were grateful for the washing machine and dryer. Everyday we looked forward to coming back to our" Tokyo home" after a long day of sightseeing. It was convenient to the Meguro train/subway station, charming local restaurants and two excellent supermarkets whose takeout sushi and sashimi was as good as we get in expensive restaurants in Washington DC! The Itoh's took good care of us, making restaurant reservations, checking in on us, offering their assistance, and making it possible for us to watch a Japanese baseball game on TV! Should we have the opportunity to visit Tokyo again we would stay here in a heartbeat. Thank you Ryoko and Kelly.
We had a wonderful stay at the Itoh's duplex apartment with our two teenaged kids. Everything is exactly as shown in the photos. It was so nice having an apartment with full kitchen and bathroom for the price of a hotel (or less!). Everything was clean and well-kept, and the beds were comfortable. It was great to have a washer and dryer as well, so that we could do all our laundry before heading on to the rest of our travels.
Ryoko and Kelly were really nice, and provided great help with directions and information about sights we were planning to visit. The neigborhood was very pleasant, and the metro/JR stations are less than 10 minutes' walk from the apartment.
The Itoh's and their apartment really made our time in Tokyo wonderful, and we would certainly stay again the next time we are in Japan!
Many restaurants, shops, supermarkets and convenience stores are within walking distance. Ebisu Garden Place, Platinum Street and Institute of Nature Study including Musashino Plants Garden are in the neighborhood.
