  • We didn't have much contact with the owner and did not meet him. He and his wife did answer us quickly when we had a question when we moved in though. You can relax and enjoy time however you wish since you won't be bothered.
    The neighbourhood is quiet (when we moved in I visited a bakery and the people there were super friendly... the owner even gave us a bag of free sandwiches as a welcoming gift) and the view is really pretty. From time to time you could hear noises from upstairs but nothing serious. Not much to do but for that it is better to go with train to Tokyo or Chiba either way.
    Must say that the walk from the station to the house is quite long. At least it seemed that way to me. But if you don't mind walking that won't be a problem.
    Garbage sorting for disposal is a pain. Too many categories and you have to be careful not to put one kind of paper in between another kind of paper.

  • First of all, I didn't stay in this exact apartment. I was changed to an apartment upstairs which was practically the same, minus the playstation and wii, but I didn't have any problems with this.

    I was overall very happy with the apartment! It's very well equipped and has everything you need. Very good for the price. Liang is very helpful and quick to respond to any questions you may have. When I first moved into the apartment he notified me that there was a problem with one of the sinks and that there was a bit of an odor. He was very quick to come in and fix it. Unfortunately the odor lingered a little, but this was a quick fix as there was a door that could shut off the area.

    The surrounding area is very beautiful! It's also very peaceful if you want a good night sleep. There are some shops around the station, but you might need to travel a station or two to find bigger shopping areas. I really enjoyed the walk to and from the station.

    The last thing I would say is that if you're planning to go into Tokyo everyday, it can get a bit costly and depending on what areas you're going, it can get a bit time consuming. There are some really nice areas around Chiba, however, so I didn't find myself doing this.

    I definitely recommend this apartment for a very comfortable and peaceful stay in Japan! Thanks!

  • Really nice and helpful host.
    The place is great and the neighbourhood so calm you will feel at ease as soon as you drop your bag. The appartement is really big and well equiped. This is the perfect place to stay if you don't need to be in the core of Tokyo. Will stay again!

  • Very good apartment (clean, big, quiet, full equiped...) in a nice place.
    Just 10-15 min walk to go to train station and just 30-45 min to go to Tokyo (depending of the type of the train).
    We didn't meet Liang but he answer quickly at ours emails.
    Thanks again!

  • The apartment was so cute. Definitely big enough for two people. Our hosts were extremely helpful when we couldn't find the place. They talked to the cab driver over the phone, in japanese, even though it was 11:00 at night. The apartment had everything we needed. The wi-fi was a nice touch. 20 min walk to the train station and about an hour and a half to anywhere else you want to go. After coming back from the busy city my boyfriend and I absolutely loved makuharihongo. There is a nice grocery store that closes at 11 and two convenient stores to pick up provisions on the way home. We really liked it.

  • Beautiful place in a quiet district. The apartment is big enough for two people and very big for me alone. Everything you need is here. It's very quick to go to tokyo. Thanks.

  • Apartment was clean and tidy, it did not have the TV or dining table as expected but not a problem as I only came back to sleep! Great host who switched out the single to a double at my request. About a 20min walk from station. Supermarket and 7 eleven on the walk which is very handy! Roomy space at a cheap price! Recommended!

Hi! I grew up in Canada and went to college in the US. Now I find myself living and working in Tokyo, Japan, where I have been for the last several years. Recently, we have started helping my mother-in-law open up her conveniently-located apartment to guests from around the world!
