We very much enjoyed staying at Maria & Rita's apartment. It was very comfortable, in a great neighborhood, and very convenient to transit (right down the block from the train station!). Most of all Maria and Rita were excellent hosts. They made sure we were welcomed warmly and helped us find our way around. We socialized with them on multiple occasions. All in all a very welcome cultural exchange, and super helpful intro to Tokyo. We had a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend anyone to stay with Maria & Rita.
I had a good time. The apartment was clean and neat. They were incredibly hospitable. They let me use their apartment till the evening of my checkout date. Hope to meet again, keep in touch.
Very grateful to the hosts Rita and Maria for making our stay more than pleasant!
The flat is really tidy and nice, located in a really fun area with loads of things to do!
Great transport access to the rest of Tokyo!
I Absolutely recommend to stay here.
Rita and Maria were excellent hosts for my girlfriend and I (both first time Airbnb'ers). They went out if their way to help us find our way- even helping us book our next accommodation. Rita also booked an appointment for me to get a hair/beard cut with her wonderful hairdresser in the nearby trendy (read hipster) suburb of Shimo-kitazawa!
Their apartment was very clean and comfortable and nicely furnished/decorated. We were surprised and impressed with its functionality despite its small size. Nevertheless our room felt large (maybe the biggest in the apartment?!). Although not centrally located, the proximity to the station means you'll have the entire city at your fingertips via the incredibly efficient and frequent railway system. I highly recommend D.I.Y. Chic Apartment!
Maria and Rita are simply adorable. The apartment is very confortable and located in a quite neighborhood super close to the train station and just minutes away from one of the most dreamy park. There are places to eat that stay open 24 hours for those of you that arrive in the late hours of the night like we did. Maria and Rita are not only super sweet and interesting but know tokyo very well and will suggest lovely places to eat and see.
We ended up been friends with Rita and Maria and can't wait for them to come and visit us in Brooklyn. We miss Umegaoka already.

Rita & Maria were wonderful hosts. The room is clean and comfortable. Their place is very convenient to the station and there are a number of cute restaurants and shops nearby if you forget anything, or need to eat! It was a very easy and enjoyable experience. If you're wanting to be in Tokyo and not in the crazy busy areas like Shinjuku and Shibuya, but still have easy access to everything, look no further!
We stayed at Maria's and Rita's for 3 nights this February and had a great time. We received great instructions on how to get to the appartment beforehand and felt really welcome throughout our stay. They even took the time to take us to a great restaurant!
I cannot thank Maria and Rita enough for the wonderful hospitality they showed me whilst staying with them in Tokyo. It only added to my first Japan travel experience!
They went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and welcome despite them being busy during my stay. I am so so very grateful!!
The apartment was perfect, typical Japanese apartment, but the room was lovely and the best retreat after a busy day. I loved returning to the neighborhood every day after being out, and it looked beautiful in the snow!
I can only hope that we'll keep in touch and I cannot thank you both enough!
Maria and Rita were such great hosts! They helped myself and my boyfriend in answering any of the many questions we had about tokyo and how to get around. They also live in such a cute neighborhood that is a simple commute to where ever we went! Also, Maria is quite the cook : )
It was my first time in Tokyo and I can not imagine a better place than Rita's and Marias'. I had such a great time with them and they were not only hosts but also friends. The size of the apartment is very japanese, not really big, but the rooms have enough space to stay there with 2 people (or even more). The connection to other stations (Shinjuku and Shibuya are very near) is so easy and Maria and Rita are very helpful by explaining how to get to different places. You get a special card from them (i forgot the name) to use the subway very easy ( you just have to put money on it). There are some supermarkets and restaurants nearby the apartment and Maria and Rita were so friendly to give me some space in their fridge. I think I would have never had such a great time in Tokyo if I wouldn't have stayed at their apartment in umegaoka. The beds are so comfortable, it's very clean and the two girls are just lovely. I really enjoyed my stay at Marias and Rita's apartment and I hope to get back soon.
I only met Rita who is a lovely person and is someone i would gladly host again or indeed stay in her home also - I'm sure her parents are equally nice too!
Rita was a marvellous guest- we had great conversations and I'm glad to have had the pleasure of knowing her! She's very considerate, communicative, and has a lovely personality in addition to being really easy to host and down-to-earth. Will look her up if I get the chance to visit Tokyo.
Lia and Rita are absolutely outstanding! Cheerful, party people and great hosts.
Their apartment is super cosy, stylish and modern. The location is very convenient to sightseeing the Western part of Tokyo. D.I.Y. chic apartment is definitely one of the best values in Tokyo.
