Puchi's traditional house is traditional indeed and very cute as well. Located in a very nice and calm area, it will let you experience how japanese life is. Access is easy. 2 subway lines in the vicinity will let you easy connections toward any part of the City you wish. Last but not least, your landlord will be very helpful to help you discovering not only the most traditional and appealing secret locations but, more than that, the gist of Japan. Highly recommended, for a single, a couple or a (small) family: the house is cute and tiny.
Excellente adresse pour vivre quelques jours dans une maison japonaise, typique et adorable "maison de poupée" dans un quartier calme et authentique. Transports publics faciles à proximité. Une propriétaire qui vous aidera à la perfection à découvrir le Tokyo secret et à comprendre l'âme japonaise, elle en connaît et partage la culture singulière.
I had a wonderful stay with Fiona in this old traditional house in a traditional part of Tokyo. The house is very Japanese and has a real history. Staying in a genuine Japanese environment like this was a great experience. Fiona was a dedicated host offering to take us out to cultural events and to go to local bars. She is a professional anthropologist and grew up in Japan and can share her insights about Japan. We had the whole upstairs of the house to ourselves. The house is very central with four different train lines and only 2 minutes from the nearest station. I could bicycle to Asakusa and Akihabara, and it is a really nice ride on a bicycle in the early morning to the fish market. There are lots of places to eat all around, including breakfast options, and traditional Japanese breakfast too. And the local public bath is definitely not to be missed! The instructions are fine...just print them out and follow them and you will have no problems. Would highly recommend this house and I would highly recommend going to a real Japanese Geisha Banquet with her, a real experience NOT to be missed. She is full of information with all things Japanese and if you get time, go hiking with her and enjoy the country side. What better way can you enjoy Japan with an English/Japanese translator. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and enjoyed our stay and will be back soon, very soon.
Actually, we are planning to hike one small mountain (Mt Fuji) up to the 5th Station from the base next week before we fly back home to Australia. Totally looking forward to this and can't wait and telling friends back home that we climbed Mt. Fuji and had a real Geisha Banquet!
Thanks Fiona for a wonderful stay and totally enjoyed Tokyo and will totally recommend my friends to stay at Traditional Old Tokyo and just love the portable wifi (made life a breeze to get around).
The location of this house is good and it is near the subway station. It is definitely Japanese old fashioned style of living.But we had a bit of a hard time to find it when we first get here because it is located on a small street of the neighborhood. The house is very small but it is fully equipped. One problem to us was the condition of the beddings-they were old and (it seemed to us that) they weren't washed very often and we found a lot of hairs in the room. But we found a cloth washing store nearby so we took some pillowcases to wash.
The house was lovely! Just what I wanted to experience with my children. The neighborhood was quaint with nice helpful people who helped us get home!
It was a little far from the Waseda station, especially after a long day of walking... But if you want to experience a real Japanese house, just as we did, you would love this house! with a tiny onsen, cute toilet and tiny kitchen, it was ideal for a couple or small family.
An unforgettable travel with a cute (website hidden)'s location is nice,and the neighborhood is friendly and quiet.
But the house is too narrow to live with six adults.Quilt and pillow seem a little damp and dirty,and the sill is really dusty.
All in all,a little disappointed but unforgettable .
Property as described. Cute, small house in great location. Very traditional and charming. Good wifi. A little bit difficult to find based on the directions provided.
Many problems with this rent. Rented as a whole accommodation, the house was shared in fact. Kitchen (not very clean) of 4 m2 welcoming also a shower. Japanese toilets out of order. An air conditioning blowing hot air, etc. Besides, very bad indications to come since the subway. Finally, a poster on the door, stuck by the neighbors, indicates you that you are in breach by living here and that they are going to call the police... To avoid absolutely !
Beaucoup de soucis avec cette location. Loué comme un logement entier, la maison (adorable au demeurant) était en fait partagée. Cuisine (pas très propre) de 4 m2 accueillant aussi une douche, WC japonais en panne, climatisation soufflant de l'air chaud, etc. Par ailleurs très mauvaises indications pour venir depuis le métro. Enfin, une affiche sur la porte, collée par les voisins, vous indique que vous êtes en infraction en habitant ici et qu'ils vont appeler la police. A éviter absolument.
感覺一般般 照片上的環境衛生和真實有些許不符 房东溝通不融洽 房东出國未溝通好鑰匙交接 導致到達有些許尷尬 住宿位置也很方便 近地鐵站附近 去新宿等地方的可以選擇 對環境沒太多要求的可以考慮
A small traditional-style house in a pleasant residential area, conveniently located close to Waseda subway station and central Tokyo. Puchi was a responsive and helpful host, and we found the house in good, clean condition. It was a little crowded with 6 people, but Puchi had warned us in advance about the size of the house, and we managed fine. Our one concern was the bedding and towels which seemed a little worn and/or damp -- this may be hard to avoid, given the humid climate -- and we gave some of them an extra wash before use. Aside from this, it was a great experience!
I stayed with Fiona for a little while in a different capacity. She was my host for a couple of weeks while I was in Tokyo. She is helpful and knowledgeable. There isn't a thing you cannot ask, or a thing she doesn't know about.
She even showed us around and guided us throgh the area we were living in. She would also take us out for a traditional evening in Japan. We ate otzumami, or snacks, Japanese equivalent of Spanish tapas, with, of course, warm sake. It was interesting to see how the lokal community lives, how they spend their time after a hard days work. The owner even made a special effort to make something different for us. A great evening.
Fiona knows a lot about Japan, and it feels safe to be able to ask if anything is needed. She will also take time to help you and explain.
I stayed as a guest from Mid-March until the end of April at this house, and had a great time experiencing life in a traditional Japanese home, whilst Fiona was a great host and helped me learn a lot about her own personal experiences with Japanese culture.
To anyone who wants to get to grips with a Japanese house the way it should be enjoyed, whilst enjoying the pleasant company you'll find within, the Puchi Uchi will definitely make you happy!
hi ,i like this place and people,honestly speaking :)
you'd better try to stay here for a while if you don't know anything about japanese life-style.
it's in tokyo,but unbelievable quiet, you'll get both of modern and ancient japan.
host is a gripping person (**)
It's a great place to stay where you'll meet people from all around the world. The location is crazy convenient with alot of quaint shops nearby.
I don't know why Mr. Andy said that, maybe just a misunderstanding between different cultures.
There is Traditional house in the title, right? And this is what a Traditional house in japan is. No bathroom in the building, and share bath water with other people. By the way, people clean their body before get the bath, like hot spring.
As an Asian, I can get the picture form the information. So I think this is just a misunderstand.
