There is also a bus stop 2 minutes away from the apartment, that goes to Tokyo Sky Tree in 15 minutes.
A place to enjoy what is left of traditional Tokyo.
15 min walk, there is a a little traditional street that a lot of tourists visit, as well as people from all over Japan. Yanaka Ginza, where you can find little stores left and right!
In a big city called Tokyo, Nippori is a very clam little city, that makes your feel at home! And if you want the hussle and bussle of the nice city life it's just 15 mins away by train!
Enjoy meeting new people, and easy going, but with a crazy work scedule!
Likes: Food, with a wine/beer. Being lazy, and taking walks on a beautiful day!
Ahhh what can I say?? I really enjoyed my stay here!
This place has everything you need,Kazue and Mana are great hosts(even if I didn't get to spend much time with them, that's my fault though lol) The area is really nice.
I would stay here again for sure!!!
Even though I arrived a little bit (2 hours) late due to delays at LAX and my own incompetence regarding trains, Kazue still met me at the station to show me to the room. The area is lovely and quiet, and not far from the train station, which is super convenient. I only went to Akihabara 4 times, and I know by heart that the fare price for the train there is ¥150.
Kazue and her roommate Mana were very helpful, giving recommendations for things to do, and bringing me along to some of their outings with friends (like going to a Jazz bar owned by a guy from Philly). The room is nice, cozy, and once you know where the building is it's pretty hard to get lost. I'd definitely stay here again.
I stayed at Kazues place for a second time and what should I say... it was perfect. We had so much fun together and the room was clean and cosy as always. As I have been in Tokyo for more times now I can totally recommend this location as one of the best. You reach every important part of Tokyo in under half an hour and you have a nice and quiet neighborhood.
As the location is awesome.... the hosts are even better. There are no superlatives for me to describe those two anymore... they give me a reason to visit Tokyo even if I don't have any business there to do anymore :)
Had a very good time in Tokyo at Kazue's. She's lovely and very helpful. The apt is small but then again this is Japan. Would stay there again.
I had a great stay in Tokyo at Kazue's place. Kazue promptly met me at Nippori station and walked me to her place. Her apartment is very clean and the room comfortable. She also very kindly invited me out to a comedy show with her friends! Although I only had a short stay, Kazue helped make my time in Tokyo was well spent. Like so many of her guests, I look forward to returning to Tokyo soon and wouldn't hesitate to stay at Kazue's place again!
I only stayed one night at Kazue's place. Which was very unfortunate, because it was exceptionally funny meeting her and her roommate Mana. They are both very welcoming, charming and open. We chatted a lot about living in Japan, places to see in Tokyo, life in general and tying shoelaces in particular. Both speak perfect English by the way. The place is great. Very clean and comfy. It's about a 10 minutes walk from the Nishi-Nippori station (Yamanote line!). Thanks a lot. Hope to see you again.
I told Kazue I would write her a bad review, because if I write how awesome my stay at Kazue's place was, it might be harder for me to stay there again because it will be all booked out! But I can't actually do that to her after she was so nice and helpful.
The room was clean and very cosy. As well as the rest of the apartment.
The location is very good as well. It is located in a quiet area with nice and lovely shops and restaurants nearby but it also is connected to the Yamanote-line which brings you easily to all the important spots in Tokyo.
So there is totally nothing bad to say for me about the accommodation.
But the best about my stay here have been the Girls. Kazue and Mana are just awesome. Kazue picked me up from Nippori-Station and invited me to go out with her friends, which all have been very nice people. She also took her time to show me around the neighborhood. Spending New Year's with Kazue and a friend of hers was one of my best starts in a New Year. You can have so much fun with her and her awesome friends.
Kazue's roommate Mana is equally nice and helpful. And if I respectively have anything "bad" to tell about my stay it might be the fact that Mana was unfortunately sick the first days of my stay wherefore I sadly hadn't the opportunity to really meet her during the first days of my stay. Fortunately I got to know her during the last two days of my stay as well.
Both are very easy going and speak english fluently and there are helpful if you ask them and leave you your space and peace if you want to relax.
If you want to stay in Tokyo alone or as a couple it is probably the best place! You won't find nicer hosts and rarely find a nicer room for this money!
My Trip to Tokyo was just perfect and I am already thinking about returning soon, and of course again staying at Kazue's place! :)
We stayed three days with Katzue and enjoyed it very much. Although the apartment is small there is everything you would need as a guest.
Its a big plus that Katzue speaks a perfect english and it made our stay pleasant and informative.
The room is a convenient ten minute walk from the station.
Kazue's apartment was great. The room was the perfect size and very comfortable, with an excellent Wi-Fi connection. 15 minute walk to the nearest train station, and it was fantastic that Kazue met me at the train station when I arrived. I highly recommend!
Kazue's place was a great place to stay, especially for someone who wanted to experience the life of a Tokyolite(and not be that much of a disillusioned tourist), but be close enough to wherever you would want to go in Tokyo. The neighborhood has lots of interesting and good restaurants, while the apartment itself is clean, and the hosts really friendly! Enjoyed the stay! :)
