Great time at Izumi's place. Quiet location, bus stop, convenience store nearby. A real japanese daylife experience. Thanks for all
Izumi was an awesome host! She was very helpful and her house was very comfortable to stay in! It was a few mins outside of Tokyo but easy enough to catch a bus or the metro! It was a nice quite community with friendly and helpful people everywhere! I would definitely stay here again!
Izumi is fantastic, she was extremely accommodating and very friendly. She is a great host. If you're looking for a real Japanese tatami experience, Izumi's is the place to go. Her house is close to a large grocery store and just a short bus ride from the train station.
Izumi even walked us to the bus stop and looked up directions for us. Thank you Izumi for making our stay wonderful.
We would definitely stay with Izumi again.
As it has already been said, Izumi is a great host. She is welcoming, gentle, intelligent, and makes you feel at home from the moment you step into her house. I really enjoyed the time I spent in her house and our conversations in the kitchen. The house itself is quite nice and in a very quiet and pleasant neighbourhood in the outskirts of Tokyo. If you need to be in the centre, this might not be the best place. But commuting to Tokyo is quiet easy and there are plenty of Express trains running from the nearest train station to Ikebukuro (around 20 minutes). Of course, most people living in that area actually work in Tokyo. As for the room, it is a very comfortable Japanese tatami room, with plenty of sun, air-con and a lot of space. Highly recommended for a comfortable and quiet stay very close to the city of Tokyo!
Izumi is great. She is very nice and fun to talk with and even more she speaks superb English. So if you are worried about language problems you will have no worries here.
Her house is a very traditional Japanese style house with tatami, huge open sliding windows and attractive bath area. Her house is also very near to a large supermarket. And the wireless internet connection is very fast.
You can enjoy a relaxing stay here and not be too far from central Tokyo areas.
Izumi was a great host and my stay with her was very pleasant. The house is in a nice, quite area. I highly recommend!
Staying with Izumi was great! She contributed to a wonderful trip. She was an incredible host that spoke very good English and was very helpful/kind. She loves to share her culture with anyone and she is very open minded/knowledgeable about a vast expanse of interesting topics. Her city is also a very nice place, quiet and unassuming. It stands in sharp contrast to the bright lights and bustle of Tokyo. It's a good place to go to rest..
Anyways, I strongly recommend her hostel to anyone!
We stayed a few nights in the izumi's house. She's a really great host, very welcoming, always available to help you and answer to your questions. It's also very nice to chat with her.
The room is very nice, quiet, bright and in traditional japanese style. You also can use the laundry washer, fridge etc.
A great place to stay, a peacefull neighborhood comparatively to the noisy Tokyo.
Great place to stay, I zumi is a great host, she helps a lot and she understand very well to travellers becuase she lived outside Japan as well, talking to her is nice and interesting. She will help you to understand how to move and when you back at home, you will feel welcome and feel comfortable, the space at home is good and at the same time is a traditional tatami style room.
Izumi is very welcoming, thoughtful, helpful and nice ! I had great time with her, I enjoyed my stay at her home and it was very interesting to chat with her :) Thank you Izumi !
