Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I stayed in this unit in Tokyo for around 5 nights in September 2011. We had planned to go to another location for 1 night but due to land slides, were unable to get to our planned accommodation. Without anywhere to spend the night, we contacted Ayako who was beyond accommodating in letting us stay an extra night at virtually no notice. Admittedly, we got a little lost figuring out which street to turn down to find the apartment but with the help of some friendly businessmen we spotted the hair dressers on the corner followed closely by the ever so convenient vending machine across the street.

Ayako arrived right on time to let us in and took us through all the important things about the unit. She has a fantastic guide on how to use all the electrical appliances and I was particularly amused with the fancy shower contraption. There is everything you can possibly need, we particularly liked having the washer/dryer handy. We didn't use much of the cooking gear as we always ate out (who wouldn't in Japan!) but the kitchen looked well stocked with everything you could need. The laptop with internet access was a huge bonus making it very easy to plan all the train rides and venues for each day's adventures.

When we first walked in we were very impressed. This may be a studio but it doesn't feel like it at all - it is so spacious! It was just the two of us but with the two double/queen beds you could easily sleep 4 without feeling really overcrowded.

The apartment isn't far to the JR loop line and is even closer to one of the local lines which admittedly we didn't use (having a JR pass). Right under the station there is a huge market-like shopping area which can definitely keep you amused. My particular favourite was a permanent stall right under the JR tracks selling bite sized crepes. I stopped in every day on the way home to get my fill for dessert and admittedly breakfast!

We could go on and on about the apartment but what made our stay particularly brilliant was Ayako! She helped me in planning the trip, which was a surprise present for my husband, even assisting in purchasing tickets that were only available on Japanese websites. From the welcome note to the little gifts she had left, everything was perfect. To me this support and friendly welcome is a priceless bonus you cannot get in a hotel.

We will certainly stay again when visiting Tokyo.

Thanks Ayako, we look forward to seeing you again!

Cozy condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 1 week and we would love to come back!

Hisae met us when we arrived and gave us a warm welcome and explained everything to us.

The condo is very clean, everything worked well. It was warm and dry - we were there during a typhoon and it's a basement apartment but there were no problems at all.

Plenty of hot water for three showers.

It is a 10 minute walk from JR Okachimachi station with restaurants and convenience stores on the way. We even walked home from Ueno through Ameyokocho shopping streets and also from Asakusa (30 minute walk.)

There is a grocery store in the basement of the Uniqlo that has some prepared meals and things to cook.

Tenmasa Tempura (find it on Yelp) is a short walk and it was our first and best meal. Sukiya is open 24 hours and Coco Curry House is great for an affordable meal - they are on the main road - Kasuga-dori.

Do not hesitate to book this if you are a family of three or four - it is wonderful!

Great place and convienient location

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed five nights at this cute studio apartment. The owners really have done an amazing job at making the small space work well. Loved the kitchen space that allowed us to make eggs and toast before we headed out for the day. Also we really appreciated the washer/dryer. The beds were the most comfortable we encountered. The location was within walking distance to two train stations which made travel very easy and Ueno itself was a wonderful spot to explore. It was very hot the first day we arrived and the air conditioner was not able to keep up, a fan would have done the trick but was not available. Luckily, the temperature dropped into the low 80s and the rest of our stay was very comfortable. Thank you Hisae for meeting us upon our arrival your explanations and the reference book made our stay and explorations very easy!

Great home away

  • 5 of 5

Continent homeaway!!

We stayed at this lovely home for 12 days, and we had great time during our stay. The Location is really convenient. We mostly walk to okachimachi JR station to start our day trip, which saves us money and time to get to many touristy places. This unit also offers washer and dryers that come very handy. We really enjoyed our stay!!

Only had 5 nights in Japan but the subway and train nearby made getting around easy! Many food places and shops/markets within walking distance! Safe area, and a very clean and comfortable unit with great amenities! The bed was also very comfortable! Also, Hisae was very gracious Upon our arrival and also helped getting our taxi at our departure. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Excellent location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was very nice. Well located, well equipped, clean and very cozy. Previous comments are true, it’s hard to add more! The beds were very comfortable!

Didn’t need to bring our slippers, they were provided. For the family of 4 was a bit tight but still comfortable. Heaters worked well during cold nights. And a pocket wifi was a big plus! The binder with all the rules and instructions in English helped a lot, especially when we needed to use a washer/dryer machine.

Thank you Hisae!

FABULOUS accommodation for your Tokyo vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 9 night stay in this clean, comfortable and well-equipped Ueno apartment. The space was great. Everything we needed was there: comfy beds, cozy duvets, towels, kitchen essentials, washer & dryer, shower, heated toilet seat, umbrellas, slippers, in-room laptop & WiFi. A pocket WiFi (which can be used throughout Japan) was also provided. So no need to rent one when you arrive in Tokyo. We found this to be extremely useful. There was also a binder providing house rules and clear instructions on how to use various equipment.

The location was perfect as it was within a:

- block to restaurants and grocery shops (for reasonable priced ready-to-eat meals, sushi and sashimi).

- 5 minute walk to a subway station.

- 15 minute walk to Ueno JR Station, Keisei Skyliner Station, Ueno Park, Ameyoko Shopping Market, and many other shops and restaurants.

- 20 minute walk to Kappabashi Kitchen Town

- 30 minute walk to Sensoji Temple. (While in that area, check out Suzukien Asakusa . It's a short walk behind the temple. They carry various intensity of matcha ice cream. Be prepare for a lineup. It's worth the wait.)

- 30 minute walk to Edo-Tokyo Museum and Sumo Museum.

Hisae, thank you for your hospitality from the beginning to the end. You always responded quickly to our messages, both outside and within Japan. And thank you for the welcome goodies tray.

We highly recommend this place, and will definitely be back!

Car: not necessary

We have a vacation home in Taito-ku in Tokyo. It is a place that is perfect for strolling in Tokyo. It is convenient for transport. You can go to Asakusa in 2 minutes, Akihabara in 3 minutes by Tsukuba Express Line and go to Ginza in 13minutes, Shibuya in 29 minutes by Subway Ginza Line. You can also go to Akihabara in 25 minutes, Ueno Park in 20 minutes and Asakusa in 30 minutes on foot. Our room is close to Asakusa and Ameyoko. One of the few places that retains the old flavour of Edo is Asakusa. I recommend visiting the Kaminari-mon, or taking a stroll through the quiet back ways of the town. A little to the north in Ueno's Ameyoko, just listening to the hawkers and spruckers you can get a feel for the colourful, lively haggling that used to be the hallmark of the district.
