I had a good time staying at Itusuro's. You will get a real taste of Japanese hospitality staying at his place. You have both a bedroom, and another private office. And you can of course hang out in the living room and kitchen. Itsuro also lets you use his super-auto espresso machine, which was fun. And watching the roomba vaccuum the floor was also cool. And Itsuro is a great guy, we had a good time drinking, watching TV, and talking. Thanks!
I had a very pleasant stay at Mr Itsuro´s flat. The room is actually bigger and nicer than what can be seen in the picture, I think. I had everything I needed, incuding the chance to wash my clothes and fast wi-fi. The location is also quite good, with some supermarkets and restaurants nearby and a few minutes walk from the Mita/ Tamachi station, which is convenient to visit Tokyo. Mr Itsuro was a very polite host, he even gave me a hand made detailed map of the area, I really appreciated that!
We have had extremely positive experience at Itsuro's place.
LOCATION: very convenient to key subway lines. Easy to get to the main sightseeing ares such as Ginza, Asakusa/Ueno, Roppongi, Shibuya, Shinjuku, Harajuku, Imperial palace, etc. using the JR loop Yamanoto line and also Mita line. The apartment is in a quiet residential neighborhood, with two large supermarkets and restaurants nearby. Also a post office is on the way from the subway to the apartment, easy to use ATM in the post office, open 24 hrs.
APARTMENT: The apartment has an excellent view from the balcony, overlooking a quaint canal - almost Venetian feel :-).
The apartment has an authentic feel and is decorated with various mementos from Itsuro's travels as well as large collection of classic film photo cameras and several guitars and ukuleles.
There are two small rooms for the guest use: a bedroom and an adjacent room with access to the balcony. Also you have access to the living room and kitchen.
There is a large bath with a separate shower room and an attached sink/mirror/washing machine room. Washer is easy to use and is quite effective. The commode is of the modern Japanese electronic style with a water jet and is in yet another separate room.
In the kitchen there is a high end coffee maker, fully automatic with autogrinder etc. It makes fantastic coffee with adjustable strength and Itsuro-san offered coffee and also cream and a variety of green teas.
HOST: everything was arranged on time and with utmost precision. Itsuro is a very kind and genial host and it was a great pleasure to get to know him. He has advised us on day trips from Tokyo, local supermarkets,an excellent Korean barbecue nearby, and he has also provided an invaluable advice for going to a highly entertaining musical show in Roppongi district, which was truly enjoyable. It was a mix of high energy musical, dance, traditional folk or Kabuki, and circus, with some politics also thrown into the mix. Also Itsuro shared some of his excellent photos which he took on his many travels in Japan and abroad.
BOTTOM LINE: highly recommended, fun, and not to be missed experience inTokyo!
It was a pleasure staying in Mr Itsuro's spare room. Mr Itsuro was a great host and recommended some nice places to visit around Tokyo with cultural value. His place was clean and conveniently located near the JR and Metro. Everything in his house was labeled in English, and he offered a hand drawn map upon arrival. Definitely recommend!
I really recommend it!!!
The apartment is located near the city center. Super market and JR station is nearby.
Itsuro is the kindest man I ever met.
THANK YOU Itsuro!
Itsuro was a great host. Was very helpful and had a map of the area which he used to show us whats in the area. He also had few guide books available to borrow. His apartment was very roomy for Tokyo standards. I would stay here again next time I am in Tokyo.
We really enjoyed our stay at Mr. Nishimoto's home. He was a very welcoming host who gave us clear instructions on how to get to his place and then on arrival, presented us with hand drawn maps for how to get from his place to nearby transit. He also presented us with some fruit and even offered us a bottle of wine. It certainly made us wish we'd come ready with a host gift on the first day.
The place is a great little apartment with lots of character. It's very clean and makes good use of tight space in Tokyo. Our rooms were actually quite spacious. We had full run of two rooms (two beds) and access to the balcony. Since Mr. Nishimoto was often gone, we actually had full run of the house most of the time.
The location is great. It's in a quiet residential neighborhood in a not as famous area of Tokyo. However, the area is actually very central in Tokyo (close to Tsukiji and Odaiba) and the apartment is a pleasant walk from Tamachi station, which is on the Yamanote line. As many people will point out, this is the most useful transit line in Tokyo and we were able to get almost everywhere without making transfers. There are also buses nearby that go straight to Odaiba and Roppongi, though they don't leave as often so you have to plan ahead a bit. There's also a small convenience store practically downstairs from the apartment building where we picked up snacks on the way home.
On the whole, we loved how convenient this place was and how natural it felt to live like a local rather than at a hotel. I highly recommend it.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Itsuro's apartment for about a week, and found it a great stay. It was very convenient for the Yamanote line, which we used daily for various adventures with our JR passes. Itsuro himself was kind and very accommodating, and if you're looking for a reasonably priced apartment with a good host, you won't go wrong with Itsuro.
The apartment has a great location (close to metro, JR station, and super market), very clean and quite. Mr. Nishimoto is a very welcoming host - thank you very much for a great stay!
My cousin and I had a great stay at this clean and roomy flat in the southeastern portion of Tokyo. It's just 5-10 min from Tamachi Station on the Yamanote loop and an oasis of calm from the frenetic energy of central Tokyo. Though we never met Itsuro in person (he was out of town during our stay), he was kind enough to have a friend at his place to accommodate our late arrival. Thanks for having us, Itsuro!
