Yukikos place was my first stop in Japan and I couldn't have chosen a better place to take my time to arrive... Senjuôhashi is a beautiful shitamachi (suburb) area, very close to the 'actual' Tokyo, but still very different - peaceful and releaxed, but at the same time it has beautiful izakaya (drinking bar) passages and little restaurants. Just walking around Kitasenju a while is worth it! I felt like the only foreigner who ever went there (and I met no others), which is definitely different from, say, already the Nippori area only a few stops away.
Yukiko and her family are great hosts and very friendly. I had all the space I ever needed in my clean, quiet room, even a little table to work from and a seperate entrance. I was always glad when I met someone of the family to have a little chat. I would definitely come back to this place and can highly recommend it, especially if you are looking for something a little bit more "authentic" than a backpackers hostel.
A lovely place, clean and cozy, and about 10 minutes walk from Senjuoashi Station. It's a few stations away from Ueno Park, numerous museums, and Ameyoko Street. It provided us with good privacy for a home stay. The host couple is easy going.
I had a nice stay here. The house was very nice and the room had everything I needed - comfortable bed, air conditioning, desk. I didn't see much of the owners but when I did they were very welcoming. The neighbourhood was very nice - it was a short walk to Kitasenjuu which was a nice, Japanese neighbourhood with no tourists in sight. The station in that area was a hub station so you could easily get to anywhere you needed.
My only complaint at around 6-7am each morning I was woken up by their 1-year-old son being very loud in the living room upstairs. I understand that that couldn't be helped but it was something that I thought I should mention. Other than that, I had a very pleasant stay.
The host canceled this reservation 11 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Is a very nice place, host is very nice.
Ms Yukiko was a great and warm host that graciously took me to her house from the train station, and had prepared a cozy room that matched the picture descriptions. To a worn-out, jet-lagged arriving passenger this was really welcoming and displayed the great hospitality of the hosts.
Yukiko's place is exactly like she described: very cozy, clean, and brand new and convenient. The location is very close to the train station, so it's easy to go everywhere from there. The day I arrived was very late, but she still came to the train station to pick me up and patiently explained to me the things that I need to know about my stay. She is very kind and respectful. It's a pleasant airbnb experience.
We enjoy the room in maki's house. It's small but very nice. The house is a common modern Japanese house. It's near the station. Everything is convenient.
Location is great, very close to senjuohashi station and 10 minutes walk to Kita-senju Station. During my 5 days stay, I managed to travel whole tokyo with 3 days subway metro pass and 1 day tokunai pass. The kitasenju neighbourhood itself has everything - supermarket, 100 yen shop, shopping street/mall, fast-food restaurant....
Yukiko Maki is friendly and easy-going, and the house is new and quiet. Overall, It is a great place to stay.
My stay in Tokyo was great. Tokyo portraits a very interesting culture and incredible infrastructure thus there is nothing like the japanese etiquette. Yukiko's place is located in a quiet and residential place. Not touristic so very good to relax at the end of the day and experience life near locals, yet there are many service providers nearby such as 24h convenient stores, different kinds of japanese restaurants, shops, health care etc. It feels like a very cozy neighbourhood. Senju is like "downtown Tokyo" however, but accessible to the most populous areas of the city by metro (the nearest metro station is 8min walk and there you find 2 metro lines and a JR line), very convenient.
Yukiko quickly answered any questions regarding the accomodation and the local area and was waiting for me at the train station upon my arrival, before the chek-out she gave me precise information of how to reach the airport (very easy BTW). As long as you stick to Yukiko's house rules your stay in this place can be very good. Defintely recommended.
