We try to keep the rules simple:
- Please don't smoke inside the room. Pets are not allowed, and room is non-smoking .
smaking a som noise in a room is not possible to do this .
- All musical instruments, stereos, radios, and your voice volume, etc., should be at a volume that won't disturb the neighbours. Sometimes this can be quieter in Japan than other countries.
- Please ask us if you want to invite anyone over. If someone is staying overnight there is an extra charge which is 2500Yen per person.
- Please wash any dishes you use and try to leave the apartment in about the same condition as when you arrived. It helps us a lot to maintain a comfortable and clean environment.
- Please always give a smile to the neighbors or property manager if you see them :). Some of them may worry about new guests arriving so a smile is important!
- Please turn off the lights and air conditioner when you are out the apartment. We want to help the environment.
- Check-out has to be done by 10:00 am. I'm sorry but we have to charge you 3500 yen per hour for late check-out. It's because we have to pay the cleaner for the extra hours and it will cause trouble for the next guests arriving.
If you could treat our place like it's your own house we will be happy :)
I spent a little over a week here just recently and I can’t think of one negative thing to say.
The apartment is reasonably sized for one or two people and is an actual apartment – you will have a small kitchen, stove, refrigerator, and a washing machine. No dryer though – this is pretty normal for Japanese homes and you can either hang your clothes to dry or take them down to the coin laundry that’s just a few doors down.
The host, Masa-san also owns the onsen and sento that’s right next to the laundry and will give you admission tickets for the nights that you are staying. If you have never gone, you should definitely go. Yes, it can be a bit unnerving at first but it was one of the high points of my stay. I wish I had gone earlier.
Speaking of Masa-san, he is a wonderful host. He is friendly, accomodating and has an extensive knowledge of the area and is always ready with a recommendation of where to eat or what to do.
The apartment is located outside of the busy part of Tokyo in the city of Edogawa. It’s about 500 m from the Toei Shinjuku Line Station and from there it’s about 30-35 minutes to most locations in the greater Tokyo area.
Edogawa itself is a very nice place and you owe it to yourself to spend at least one day exploring it. There are several restaurants, shops, and other things to see that are all within a reasonable walk from the apartment. The walking path along the canal is a very nice walk and the observation tower at the Tower Hall is free and gives you an excellent view of the city.
I will be definitely be staying here again when I return to Tokyo.
The apartment met all our needs as a travelling family of four. Masa-san, the host, was most accommodating and helpful to ensure we had a comfortable and convenient first time stay in Japan. For those who don't mind travelling the extra time to downtown Tokyo, this is a good value place to stay.
Wonderfull place outside the city, with a great connection and local restaurants.
Very kind host, who gives good advices for the local area. The Onsen was one of the best things we enjoyed in Japan. Room is perfekt for 2 People, but 3 was also managable. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Great place, good trip.
Arrived 4hrs before check in time (4pm) but was allowed to leave our luggage & start our holiday. roam around vicinity with it until exactly 4pm before we are allowed to check in. Reminder to all to request for it before booking.
On checking in, we discuss with host the time of our flight (5pm) and that we can check out and leave the place at 1pm. Could be due to miscommunication, we were request to check out at 11am (cleaning time) when we are out in town. Luckily, we had packed before leaving and host carried luggage from the room to store at his office to enable cleaning aunty to clean. We found out when we return to check out. Good for us coz we saved the trouble to carry the luggage from 2nd floor to ground floor. Thus, reminder again to request to store luggage in office before booking. Verbal communication is not advise to avoid miscommunication.
Stayed for 6 days 5 nights but room was not clean throughout although cleaning fee was charged. Thus, please prepare your own plastic bags for your trash. There is a mini trash collection center near the staircase leading to room.
Area was convenient with at least 4 supermarkets nearby and many eatery located around accommodation & train station (Funabori station) which is about 10mins walk.
Host will give you tickets for public bath owned by them just 4 doors away. my girl enjoyed going to public bath with the locals.
The rooms owned by the host are on 2nd floor without lift and office is right below. Smaller luggage are advised if your travelling with man :).
Overall, the fee paid are cheaper than hotel as there are 3 of us and there are not many hotels with twin bed or triple sharing. We used 3days Tokyo metro pass @ Yen 1500 with unlimited rides on Tokyo metro to get us around - JR line has to be paid separately.
Host will give you a unlimited wifi router thus it is still oki if your do not have data sim. The speed of wifi router is acceptable if your using only for whatsapp but not for email checking.
Host will give your some write up and suggestion of things to do and direction to walk to accommodation from train station upon confirmation of booking with them.
This was our first stay in Japan, and we immediately missed parts of it when we left. The rooms are a clean and comfortable. They are also a good size, which is a plus for someone who stands at about 6'2". The beds were nice, and facilities were easy to use. Not only that, but Masakatsu was very accommodating and informative on how to use everything in the room, as well as what restaurants and attractions were nearby. He also provided very clear instructions on how to get to the place, and how to get to many popular tourist spots from the apartments as well. The apartments also come with small tickets that allow you to access an Onsen/Sento that they own. This was honestly my favorite part of the experience, and something I recommend for everyone that stays here, as it's a great way to relax after an entire day of walking, and a truly unique Japanese cultural experience. The location of the apartments was nice as well. While it wasn't in the center of the city, it was extremely close to Funabori station which essentially allows you to easily access the rest of the city. The location was also really quiet and quite nice to return to at the end of the night. Honestly, I have nothing but praise for these apartments, and when returning to Tokyo I'll book another stay with Masakatsu in a heartbeat. I could not be more pleased with my stay or Masakatsu's amazing hospitality.
