Wonderful location and kind people you can't find another in Tokyo downtown
Tokyo Vacation Houses owned by Mr. Richard Ashley are wonderful renting houses for travellers all over the world to have an extraordinary staying experience in Tokyo downtown. The location here is great, near the local and relaxing area called "谷根千(Yanesen)" I loved dearly, old buildings, fabulous museums, all kinds of vendor shops, kindly and warm people all around this place. Beyond that, just five-minute walking you can get yourself to the Nishi-Nippori Station, then take either the railroad or the metro at your option to other places in Tokyo. That is, you can easily have a business meeting in 銀座(Ginza), a local temple sightseeing tour in 淺草(Asakusa), or an electric appliance shopping schedule in 秋葉原(Akihabara) in daytime, then back to Tokyo Vacation House area for beverages and delicacies, or even a local Japanese bathhouse shower at night! Moreover, Richard is very well-knowledged about everything of "谷根千(Yanesen)" area and other great places around Tokyo, and he is very responsive in providing all the necessary information you might want to know.
Tokhouse is a great base and a good value for a Tokyo visit. There are a lot of sights and experiences accessible in the surrounding area and host, Richard, was very generous with his time and experience in showing me what there is to do. I spent 2 days at Tokhouse 102 as part of a Japan vacation and really enjoyed exploring the nearby residential neighborhoods, as well as the museums and other culturally and historically significant sights that are in the Ueno vicinity
Richard is a great host and provides a place you can really live in like a home while traveling. He gave me the train info I needed to get to his property and met me at the station (way earlier than a normal Japan check-in time). I fixed some meals in the kitchen with food from the nearby supermarket and enjoyed eating and drinking in neighborhood establishments as well.
When I get back to Japan I will try to stay at Tokhouse again.
Hi Barry, It was a pleasure to meet you and have you as a guest as well as to spend bit of time chatting at the local pub. Hope to see you again sometime just remember to book well in advance :>) You have our recommendation to any vacation rental owner as a 5 star guest. All the best.
Tokhouse Tokyo Vacation House
De huur van het Tokhouse in Tokio is ons goed bevallen. De eigenaar haalde ons af van het station, verstrekte ons goede informatie, en maakte ons wegwijs in de buurt. Het wijkje van het Tokhouse, bij het station Nishi-Nippori, beviel ons zeer: net buiten de grote drukte en een echt volkswijkje, met leuke winkeltjes en cafeetjes, en vlakbij het Ueno-park.
Simple and cozy flat near Nishi-Nippori station. The flat has everything you need to feel like home. We were surprised how nice the neighbourhood was and Richard told us really good walk through the cute alleys all the way to Ueno park. The flat is also just 5 minutes walk from Yamanote line which takes you most of the places in Tokio.
This was our second trip to Tokio, but this accomodation would also be perfect place to begin your first journey to this huge city. Richard has tips for day trips and all kind of sights.
The Tokhouse is a great place to stay if you're visiting Tokyo. I appreciated its cleanliness, and also the fact that it is located very close to a big metro/subway line. Thanks, Richard, for a great stay!
The place itself is located just a 5min walk from the Jr Yamanote line and is very easy to find. The apartment is well planned and is suitable for a couple or 2-3 friends. There are several shops nearby and a post office which supports international creditcards.
Richard met us at the station and showed us around the neighborhood so we would feel at home right away and we sure did. He also helped us with information about various excursions that we wanted to do. Overall we found him to be a very professional and friendly host and we will certainly be back next time we're visiting Tokyo. Thanks for having us!
The accommodation was fantastic, the apartment was very spacious and was kitted out to a very high standard (with all kitchen equipment, washing machine, etc.. etc..). It was in a great area, a very short walk from a main train station and close to great restaurants and shops.
Richard was a great host, and showed us the local area and provided us with lots useful information of where to go and other insider knowledge.
