I really recommend it!!!

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!
Mr. Nishimoto was very welcoming and a nice host to me and my friend for two nights. He shared his beer, food and drinks with us and even though we didn't see him much we felt very well accommodated .The rooms were clean and pretty comfy . A very good place especially taking the fare into account .
If you need a super low budget accommodation in this vast city, Itsuro's place could work. A bit on the remote side yet 10 minutes to the nearest train station.
He is also a gentle man.
Mr.Nishimoto was a incredibly generous host who welcomed us with dinner which included a dish his wife in Russia made, a "red" fish sashimi. He also provided very good recommendations on places to visit,places to eat, and taught us some basic Japanese mannerisms. The apartment itself was very clean and quite spacious for a Japanese apartment. It is also conveniently located near the JR, Metro lines. It is also located near a gym (very rare in Japan) and recreation center. If there is an opportunity in the future, I would defiantly stay here again
We were fortunate to have found Itsuro on Airbnb. With the three of us - myself, my wife and my son - it was not easy to find a place to stay in Tokyo for one month at a reasonable price. Itsuro provided two rooms for the three of us to stay with no extra charge for the extra person.Though the bed was a little bit cramp for me and my wife to share, we got used to it after a few days.
We had the apartment most of the time to ourselves, as during working days Itsuro will be in the office from late morning to late in the evening. He's only at home during the weekends and even that most of the time he's in his room doing "homework" (Itsuro is an IT specialist so he spends a lot of time doing computer work). He's also a gadget man - he has an iRobot Roomba to do the vacuuming every day, an automatic expresso coffee machine for us with unlimited supply of coffee beans, an automatic washing machine with supply of detergent, softener and bleach that we can use whenever we want, Japanese tea, bottled water, wireless internet, big TV and bicycles for us to move around (but we didn't manage to take advantage of).
Itsuro's apartment is also very conveniently located in a very quiet and peaceful place, at a reasonable distance from train/subway stations, not far from a discount store where you can buy groceries for home cooking (& save a lot of money by not eating out too often).
Any negative points about Itsuro or his place?
Nothing really except that the TV is totally in Japanese so you don’t understand much if you don’t know the language. Maybe Itsuro can get one of those bilingual TV which we had 30 years ago for programs that are bilingual.
If you want to stay at a place that feels like a furnished apartment but without paying the cost of such an apartment, then Itsuro's is the place.
