We spent three nights in Mitsuyo's Kinshicho apartment.
The apartment was clean, modern and comfortable, with a view of the city and a very spacious bathroom. Despite sharing with two other couples, we felt our stay to be private and very comfortable. Mitsuyo is a fantastic host, very kind and helpful, she gave us very clear instructions to find the apartment, a lot of tourist advice and help. We really appreciated her hospitality.
From the apartment you can take a beautiful walk through a tree-lined park to get to the Skytree. It's something we would definitely recommend!
It was a delightful apartment with great location and everything is carefully mended.
What the best is Matsuyo's considering personality that gives me and my boyfriend lots of useful information on our trip in Tokyo.
I would highly recommend anyone to stay at this apartment.
Mitsuyo's place is lovely, close to the metro and has a stunning view. I highly recommend her place and would love to stay here on my next trip to Tokyo.
Rester chez Mitsuyo a été une très bonne expérience. Le lieux est proche de la Skytree Tower (quelques minutes à pied). Un soir, elle a cuisiné un excellent Sukiyaki (une fondue japonaise) et m'a invité (ainsi que un de mes collègue, qui logeait ailleurs) à le partager avec elle et son mari. Très disponible, elle m'a régulièrement aidé durant mon séjour pour réserver des activités ou m'orienter dans la ville !
Mitsuyo's place is very nice and clean and well furnished. She has great directions to her place and how to use everything in the house.
She is very nice and her English is very good.
If you like to use public transport and walk, the two nearest subway stations are about 15-20 minutes away. So not so bad when just touring around, but a bit of a pain with your luggage if you do not want to take a taxi. There was a bus, but I preferred not using them.
There is a lovely park/path near the flat where you can walk 15 minutes to the Sky Tree. As it is a suburban area, it is nice to be in green space with the running water and people relaxing.
The only slight problem was there was her friend staying there in one bedroom and 3 other (nice) international guests who she told me about in advance staying in a the convertible bedroom in the living room. So 5 of us sharing one bathroom and sharing the living room. It wasn't a big problem as we were all on different schedules and quiet. But if you like your personal space, you should be aware of that possibilty.
If you are looking to stay in Tokyo, there is only one place and one person to stay with - Mitsuyo Sato. Mitsuyo is a lovely person with a great knowledge/passion and pride of Tokyo and Japan and she will tell you everything and anything you need to know. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and her place is amazing (and CLEAN!). She only deserves great guests so the exchange is two way and be sure to treat her and her residence with respect and care.
When I come back to Tokyo - I'll be looking to stay with Mitsuyo again!

Tokyo is such a HUGE city !!
OMG ! Thank you Mitsuyo for helping me out by giving some tips on where to go and what to see !
It has been a pleasure to stay at Mitsuyo's flat. It is very clean, spacious, close to 2 metro stations.
Mitsuyo is very welcoming, helpful and so organised !
We had the chance to travel together, along with a Brazilian girl, who also stayed at Mitsuyo's flat, to Osaka ans Kyoto; and we had a very good time !
I highly recommend you to stay at her place !

About the Host, Mitsuyo
Hello! Welcome to my new condo! I was born in Tokyo and never lived abroad. In 2012 when I traveled 4 months in Europe, I imagined that I could support something for travelers to Japan, that was the first trigger to start hosting through Airbnb since Sept. 2012.
My ideal style is to make spaces for people in relaxed, cosy, friendly, harmonized and sophisticated atmosphere. Hope you engage in my new condo and enhance my hospitality!
I'm supporting overseas travelers and connect people to culture, between two different congregate roots.
The reason why I started Airbnb in September 2012 was that I really wanted to share the nice building of my apartment with other members as I really noticed "I LOVE MY HOUSE". In the end, it was true. The joyful people who are coming to my place really love my place and have both entertained and precious time because I love my house, too!
I'm really honored to host people who are coincidentally scheduled to come all the way from Europe, America, Australia and other western and Asian counties, beyond the scale of my own private family and friends.
This is the end of the story that I come back from a round trip to Europe in 2012, I noticed good aspects laid in both Europe and Japan, and I rebuilt my perspective to my own country. I really appraised Japan's total value very high.
One important request from my side is please just take a careful support to my house as I respect my place. The (paper) walls and (soft wood paper) floors are very easily scratched and detracted, and it's quite a lot to be incurred even for a small damage made after you leave. Again, please make sure you pay attention to them more than hotels.
Have fun and a relaxed stay!
