I am an anthropologist and musician studying traditional Japanese culture.
Looking forward to meeting you.
It's a great place if you need to crash while wandering around the city. Fiona also personally showed us her favorite local place to have a cup of sake. The house is old and has its traditional charm. That also means the walls are very thin and not very sound proof. Nevertheless, we stayed here for 2 nights and even extended our stay for 4 more nights and had a blast in Tokyo.
Well located place. Great to stay in terms of location. Everything was ok. Just think that some information about house, shower, rooms, etc. should be better adressed on the ad.
Puchi was really a resourceful and interesting host. Actually the first night was a bit too crowded but we managed somehow. Then she had accommodated our request to have bit more space on the 2nd stay a few days later. She also gave me very useful advice on our new life in another country. She believes in interacting with the guests and other guests I met were very interesting and exciting people, too! Overall, I really enjoyed my experience and would like to stay in her other places in the future! Thank you Puchi-san!
Fiona was a friendly, charming, helpful hostess, as were the three young men (from Tunisia, Poland, and Argentina) who were staying there as her helpers.
Place was small -- shower and toilet in the kitchen, and perhaps too many people staying there -- had to step over them to get to the bathroom at night -- was shared room, with futons. Moderately clean. Friendly.
READ the directions carefully, address has changed, or changes.
Puchi was a warm and welcoming host and was readily available at the location or via email to answer any questions that I had. I stayed with my friend and we were able to comfortably fit in the room that was offered without much problems. Space heaters and warm electric blankets were provided to keep us warm.
I had a great time at the Fiona's place. The house is located in the Taito district, a very calm area, wich is really nice to return to, after a exausting day in Tokyo's more busier areas. Asakusa Shrine is a 15 minute walk away and there is a public bath/Onsen nearby, with friendly and helpfull staff (No problems concerning Tattoos, even some Japanese guests were tattooed).
It is a beautiful tiny house adn traditional as promised. But not hot water in the shower.
I had a great stay at Fiona's. The location is ideal with easy access to several metro lines getting you anywhere in the city in no time. The house itself is one of a kind: a real 80 years old wooden house with traditional paper-thin walls. It's really rare and unique! Don't expect luxury, though: you're in for something authentic here. So yes, the shower is in the kitchen, but that shouldn't turn you of from staying in this house which probably won't resist long to the modernization of Tokyo.
Fiona is a very warm and welcoming host. She took me dining to a nice local restaurant and was really keen on sharing her passion for Japanese traditional culture. That's what Airbnb should be more about: real authentic sharing experiences!
La chambre est dans une maison en bois ancienne dans un quartier calme et agréable bien desservi par les transports.
Cette maison traditionnelle offre un confort dont le côté un peu « basique » est largement compensé par son charme.
Puchi a été une hôtesse sympathique, disponible et qui semble aimer à faire partager sa connaissance profonde du Japon.
Puchi est une hôte très gentille.
La maison est bien située, pour toute vos exécution dans Tokyo.
Petit bémol pour ma part : la propreté des draps.
Mais bon dans l'ensemble c'est cool .
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.
