  • My husband and I stayed with Kenta for three nights at the end of our recent trip to Japan. Kenta responded quickly to all emailed inquiries and was kind enough to meet us at Oshiage Station and show us to his home. The house was extremely clean and comfortable and we quickly settled in. We found Kenta to be very friendly, but also respectful of our privacy. The upstairs space was roomy and the futons were quite comfortable. We did not use the kitchen or laundry facilities, but enjoyed that they were available. The neighborhood had everything we needed, with a large grocery store, convenience store, and several restaurants within a five minute walk. The new Skytree development was also only about 10 minutes away and offered great views, as well as another grocery and many places to purchase gifts and souvenirs. We will be sure to stay with Kenta the next time we visit Tokyo!

  • Kenta's place is perfect. Close to oshiage station (although this is not a JR station, it's only one stop away from JR). It's very clean, very spatious, and Kenta is extremely open to giving travellers their own space and helping them out when needed. He will also meet you at oshiage so you know how to get to his place. 10/10 I would stay with Kenta again and I would recommend his place to every Tokyo visitor.

  • Kenta is an excellent host. Me and my sister spent 5 days in kenta places. The room is super clean and spacious,the futons are so comfortable. the bathroom is clean and with bathtub. Kenta is very helpful because he pick us up at oshiage station and help us when we ask.We own the second floor during our stay and whatever you need you can found in kenta places(such as travel adapter,washing machine,hair dryer and etc)definitely as worthy stay in tokyo. I will come and stay again if i m returning to tokyo. A big thanks to kenta san^^

    bonus point: supermarket,bento shop,restaurant all around the corner.

  • Kenta is an excellent host. He is very caring and there for you if you need him. At the same time he is very respectful of your space. I enjoyed the house which is compact, super clean and tidy. The area is very local and not so modern which was a plus after a day on the busy subway. There are plenty of shops, an amazing supermarket and some local and quirky restaurants. Nearby you have the Skytree and the modern mall that forms part of it. All in all I really enjoyed my stay and can highly recommend Kenta's apartment.

  • The place is VERY CLEAN ! Kenta was such a nice host :) He picked us up 15 minutes after I sent him an email. His place is superb. Very clean and minimal. The bathroom is also very good. Has a bathtub too ! Futon is very comfortable and WIFI is fast. You can see the Tokyo Skytree from the room :) The area is great as it is quiet and peaceful. Has a big supermarket nearby and also 3 different train lines so it is easy to get around. Kenta leaves us to our own activities and does not disturb us at all. But he is there when you need him :) Definitely recommended !! Thanks so much Kenta. I love your home :D

  • I'm very happy to stay Kenta's house, it's very (website hidden)'s near supermarket and shopping is very convenient. The house is not far the subway. Kenta's house is very clean, the kitchen can be used. Kenta is very nice, you can ask him if you have question. Next time I will still choose to stay Kenta's house.

  • I and my sister had a great stay at his house. We stayed for a week and it was perfect to look around Tokyo and go back to a nice calm place to relax. We really felt at home and would love to go back there again!

  • Excellent place, very clean, spacious, very recommended, 4 stations near, near skytree, great host, would stay here again in another visit

    April 2014
  • The room is spacious enough for 2 persons, and got everything I need.
    Comfortable futon, free wifi (which is hard to get in Japan), universal adaptor, and TV. The toilet and bathroom was also very clean and smelled great.
    Not to mention, the host picked us up at the Skytree/Oshiage station and walked us to his house. Even though the house does need at least 10-15 minutes from the station, but it situated near to the Skytree tower, that you can go the mall inside everyday(Uniqlo is really great here). Since we already knew where we are going, the host did not bother us at all, and we can come in and go out anytime we like. I will definitely stay here again if I am going to Tokyo again.
