  • Nakano Apartment - A Home Away From Home

    "Our family of five adults were very comfortable in the Nakano apartment for the two weeks that we stayed in Japan. The apartment was located in a good location close to the train station and the Broadway shopping complex which provided for all of our needs including the choice of many restaurants. The apartment was clean and highly functional providing an excellent home base for us. It was easy to access Japans great rail system using the JR rail pass and travel to various tourist sites on day trips or overnight. Makoto-San was a great host and provided very valuable information on the sights to see as well as getting to and from the airport and other various locations. We believe that he is a great ambassador and represents the welcoming nature of the people of Japan and particularly the people at the information centres that are always willing helpers."

  • Nishi-Ogikubo

    "Was greeted at the train station. On the way to apartment (only 3 minutes from train station) many convenient things were pointed out (places to eat, antique shops, karaoke, shopping, 24hr grocery store, etc.). Perfect location. Apartment was very clean and much larger than expected. Received many suggestions for sightseeing and also maps for train stations (Shinjuku, Tokyō, Shibuya, etc) .. very helpful not to get lost. Also received train an subway maps which were also very helpful. Highly recommend staying here."

  • Perfect place to call home in Kyoto

    "We were very lucky to be able to call Senraku House our home for 3 weeks in Kyoto. It is an amazing and beautiful hidden gem. Last year, we stayed in Rieko and Thomas' wonderful, larger Gion Kyuraku machiya with our adult children but this time, it was just the 2 of us, with my brother coming to visit us for a short time, and Senraku House was perfect. It was very special to live in this traditional and sparkling clean machiya house, with its tamami floors, low eating table, comfortable futon sleeping mats, and tasteful decor, and yet, have every modern convenience - washer and dryer, large bathroom and shower, WiFi, fully equipped kitchen, air conditioner, and big screen TV. Everything is labeled in English so there is never a doubt as to how to operate anything. Senraku House is conveniently located in central Kyoto and it is easy to walk, take a bus or the subway, or catch a taxi to anywhere that we wanted to go. Rieko and Thomas are another reason to stay at Senraku House. This time, we had primary contact with Rieko and she is just amazing: so warm and friendly, helpful, full of great suggestions (she told us about the best place to see cherry blossoms, the best craft fair, and a small local restaurant for really good soba), and always just an email away if we had any questions. I know she must be as kind to everyone who stays at Senraku House but she certainly made us feel as though we were her special guests. We love Kyoto and Rieko and Thomas with their comfortable, beautiful properties make us feel as though Kyoto is our second home. We can't wait to go back. Thank you!"
