We had a good stay at Yumiko's apartment. Location is very good and we were very close to all the major sights and eats. The building itself is in a small street so not easily spotted unless you follow Yumiko's clear instructions closely.
The apartment was clean, nicely furnished, well stocked and everything worked well. The organic soap products were a delightful addition to an excellent stay.
Yumiko was very thoughtful and gave very clear instructions on dos and don'ts (Japanese apartments are generally very different so this is important!) and took the time to understand our needs. She gave us several recommendations which we took and we were very happy we did.
We would strongly recommend Yumiko's apartment!
Yumiko and her brother were wondeful, caring and reliable hosts. The apartment is pretty small but well maintained and the locatoin is perfect! Actually you can walk from the central station (approx. 10-15 min.). You should know that you have to fold away the bed every morning so you can actually use the room and unfold the bed in the evening. There is very little room to store your lagguage. Still we enjoyed our stay a lot and can definitely recommend it if you are not bothered by the 'space-issue'.
We loved this place! Yumiko was one of our most attentive hosts! She met us in person to show us the place, had a variety of complimentary items for us, and even gave us a bottle of wine! She kept in touch with us throughout our stay with suggestions and directions to places we wanted to visit. Three of us stayed here comfortably. It was spacious, quiet, and had everything we needed to feel at home. It was close to a grocery store which was convenient, and was fairly central. Once we got our bearings we were able to walk every where we needed. It was not close to jr, but was close to multiple subway stations. We enjoyed our experience at this place and yumiko was a perfect host! Highly recommended!
This a lovely apartment. Yumiko and her brother provided great directions and very helpful information about Kyoto. The apartment is conveniently located between the central station and the main shopping area. Recommended.
Yumiko's flat was small but comfortable - it accommodated two people, but at quite close quarters, and with not much extra space for our luggage.
Having said that, the location was ideal, with Gojo subway station about 30 seconds walk from the front door, and the key areas of Kiyamachi, Shijo and Kawaramachi all about 10-15 minutes' walk away. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.
We had a wonderful stay at Yumiko's apartment. It was really a true Japanese experience - a very small apartment where we made our bed out of mats on the floor, and then put them away during the day. A very unique experience, if you are looking for a view into the Japanese lifestyle and don't mind a smaller space this is a great place to stay! Thanks Yumiko!
The apartment is quiet, clean, and very well-located. It was a great size for our group (two people). Very close to an intersection of two subway lines (5-minute walk) which makes it very easy to get around.
Yumiko was a fantastic host, she offered many suggestions for food and bars in the area. You absolutely must try the Okonomiyaki place she recommends!
As a couple we stayed 5 nights at Yumiko apt in Tokyo
we found the location to be very convenient, just between the central train station and many attractions.
the Apt is a bit small for a couple, but since most of the day we were out so it didn't really bother us.
Yumiko was very attentive and resourceful with information.
We had a very nice experience with this rental.
Apartment was just great for our needs. We had family vacation with our 3-year old son and stayed at Yumiko's apartment and enjoyed it a lot. Everything was very clean and functional. Specially travelling with child washing mashine is great.
Yumiko is lovely host and it was great that she was also having time to spend with us.
This was our family's first experience about home stay and standard for future places is now set up very high.
I can truly recommend Yumiko as host and apartment to stay!
Very nice and interesting girl. Respectfull and comunicating as well.
Short stay but I rewally enjoyed meeting her.
I totally recomend her.
Yumiko came to live with us in the USA as a senior in high school and lived with us for a year as an exchange student.
It was a wonderful experience and we truly feel we gained another daughter. She is a very sensitive and creative young woman.
She loves to travel, drink good coffee and eat at special places. She is willing to try new foods and enjoys family get togethers with her American family.
We love her and miss her very much.
