I have a extra japanese tatami room for rent.Here is 20 minuets from JR Oomori station.
Internet and utility are include.I don't stay my house (website hidden) you can enjoy your free time.
Sotaro was a great host and very helpful. He was almost never at home and respected my privacy.
I had a great stay here. Sotaro was very kind and accommodating. I think it's perfect if you are looking for a place to crash while you explore Tokyo. Cab from the bus station is around 800 yen. Only drawback is that it is not in Tokyo and so if you plan on partying in the city you are tied to the train schedule. However, if you just plan on sightseeing then I think this will work just fine.
Spacious, clean and tidy room. I had comfortable rest. Theres a tradition (deeper) style bathtub if u want to enjoy a dip. A quiet charm to the neighborhood, nice parks around should one be keen to explore by foot. (I usually go for a run) different bands of combinis and Origin bento are within walk. A 24hrs postoffice nearby. Lots of popular eateries and malls around the Omori station area. Though Soutaro is a busy man, he is well connected online so help is just a message away...but do share a conversation with him over beer if time allows, not only he has good insights, he's also design and IT savvy. Yes, the wifi here is high speed!
Very straight forward.
Sotaro's house is in a pleasant neighborhood, in a central area of Tokyo. It is about 15 minutes walk from two train stations on different lines. It's about 20 minutes to Tokyo station from one of these.
Sotaro was there to meet me when I arrived and showed me around. He is soft spoken but friendly and speaks quite adequate English.
The room is quite a large single room. It has an air-conditioner. The bed is a futon on a tatami mat floor (traditional Japanese style).
Guests have access to the kitchen which is large and well equipped. There is a Japanese style sit-down shower (though you could stand up) down stairs. There is a toilet upstairs and another downstairs.
Overall, completely adequate for my needs for two days in Tokyo.
I'm sure it would work well on a longer basis also.
It's wery nice house the host was wery nice to my if any one wants to go here then I can Sai it's (shizukana tokoro desu) who like silent places I can guaranty this is a wery good one
Tyvm to hosting me to your place I hope you will geet Lott of guests
Beautiful,comfortable,nice, clean, new and cozy house. The host doesn't always at home and the house is entirely yours. Quiet and safe neighborhood. The distance from the train station is a bit far but along the way, many restaurant, supermarket, shops, shopping mall, fruit stall, daisho(100 yen) and many more. The prices is cheaper from tokyo or shinjuku. It is residential area. I love this location because is 2 station away from shinagawa to transit to haneda airport. Upon your arrival, please check the exact location from the host in details if you plan to walk to his house. Otherwise, you can take cab.
Soutaro is very nice and speaks good english. His home is very spacious and clean. The neighborhood is very nice and quiet. Soutaro wasn't around a lot, so it was almost like having a whole home to myself.
I've had a fantastic stay at Soutaro's house in Omori. After meeting at Omori station we had a 10 minute walk to his home (the last part is on a bit of a slope so be prepared if you have a lot of luggage). The house itself is pretty, clean, modern and very quiet. Soutaro is rarely home so I had the place to myself. It's January so rather cold inside but the tatami room (the bedroom) has hot/cold AC. I was dubious about sleeping on an airbed (albeit a double) but the room was so cosy that I slept like a log! The shower is also excellent and the kitchen equipped for cooking although I didn't use it.
This is a really tranquil southern Tokyo neighbourhood. There are 24hour supermarkets nearby on a main road, and on the 10 minute walk to Omori station you will find many shops and conveniences including a walk-through mall. The area in front of and behind Omori station has many many little cafés, sushi places and bars with lunch menus, with a varying degree of English spoken but everyone is very helpful.
Just outside of central Tokyo, Omori is on the JR line so direct to Tokyo station. I recommend getting a Suica (or Pasmo) card which is a top up travel card; much like the Oyster in London. Travel into the central parts takes about 20 minutes, which is perfect.
This is an ideal base for exploring Tokyo and I would definitely recommend it. Arigato Soutaro!
