The house was in a wonderful location - at the heart of one of the most popular and hisorically richest neighborhoods, yet very quiet and elegant, of Yokohama, thus of Japan. I absolutely loved the house and the beautiful host.
If you need a place to stay in Yokohama, this it is! Perfectly situated within short walking distance to Motomachi, Chinatown, Yamashita park and the city center, the beautiful home of Mrs Tamura has everything you may desire. Besides one of her spacious rooms, you may use the kitchen, the living room and the music room (!) at your own convenience. Mrs Tamura will make everything she can to make your stay a pleasant one, supplying you with all possible information and help. I strongly recommend her place for an experience out of the ordinary.
Akiko's spot in Yokohama is a real treat. It's larger than any residence I've stayed in Japan over the last ten years. The layout of the house is perfect, you can hang out in the spacious downstairs, play some music, talk, and relax, or head up to the private upstairs bedrooms when you need some quiet time.
Akiko herself is a lovely host, she let's you know about how to get around and what to see in the Yokohama/Tokyo area, and was a blast to talk with and has a lot of great stories to tell.
Everything was perfect! The next time I'm in town I'll be back.
