Très bon séjour à Yokohama. La maison est grande et confortable. Akiko est très accueillante et prévenante. L'accès au centre de conférence "Pacifico Center" était très aisé.
I have a nice and confortable stay in Akiko's home. I love walking a lot, so it was nice discovering Yokohama different places around. It was very hot outside but air conditioning in the house makes it confortable. Thank you Akiko.
非常好的日本民宿。非常好的体验了日本当地居民的生活。床睡着非常舒服，是我在日本住的最舒服的床。早晨出去晨跑非常开心。推荐入住。但是离地铁站有段距离。推荐游玩的时候买巴士通票，离巴士站还可以。有711可以买夜宵。房主家的厨房很大。thank you so much！
Akiko was a very helpful host and very accomodating to our schedule. The house was a nice way to start our 10 day stay in Japan (the first 2 nights were at Casa des Amigos) as it had a homely feeling for us. She speaks very good english so it was helpful to have her explain some basics to us before we set off on our own.
The house is tucked back in a neighborhood so it may be difficult to find. Also, it's up in the hills a bit above the Motomachi area so it's a fairly convenient walk, but it's uphill on the way back so plan a little extra time.
The house doesn't have the pizazz of a nice hotel, but it's a comfortable place to stay, which is what most people on Airbnb are probably looking for.
Akiko is a great host. Her English is also great. And her home was perfect for our family of 3 - dad, mom and teen--making a challenging transition back into Japanese life. Akiko provided much information about the local area that was helpful in our selection of our own apartment. I love Akiko!
