Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Worldwide traveler and entrepreneur from Hawaii. Lived in Japan since 1995 so we have lots of insider information and contacts and are happy to put in extra effort assist our most esteemed guests in having a most memorable experience in this great country.

Why the Owner Chose Tokyo:
We used to live in this house and love the experience of living in a local neighborhood in a house rather than a high rise apartment. The house was originally built in 1965 but we completely remodelled it inside and out. new roof, plumbing, wiring, walls, appliances etc. Have a unique experience by living in a peaceful, safe Japanese neighbourhood yet be only a few minutes from the main JR Yamanote train line and the Tokyo metro. Easy and quick, direct airport access in under 1 hour. The most reasonable rates at the most convenient location. This area is where history has been preserved and the modern thrives so you get the best Tokyo has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love Japan and have lived here going on 18 years. I also like privacy comfort and convenience. This location offers it all.
