“Too small for 4 people but lovely and clean at a great location.”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We loved the location of Tokhouse in Yanaka - such a charming part of Tokyo! Ueno park with all it's museums was within walking distance so we could have explored just this area for days!

The apartment was wonderfully clean and tidy and very well equipped. There was a "manual" for all the remotes and other important "how-to" info which was very helpful.

We found it very close quarters for the four of us (2 adults, 2 kids) but it would be perfect for 2 people. There was no where to go so everyone had to go to bed when the 7 year old did. Either than that, it was great!

Richard was a wealth of information on the local area - he had maps ready for us with all the amenities we would need clearly marked. We loved the bakery he recommended - went everyday! His info and suggestions were very helpful.
I recommended clearly coordinating a checkin time with Richard as we had trouble working out a mutually convenient meeting time.

Very clean apartment, very helpful owner who's a long term Japanese resident. Very small apartment (for 5 people) but it had everything, from fast internet to a washing machine. I would recommend it to people who travel with 2-4 people and want to stay several days in Tokyo.

Thank you for your kind review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed our facilities. First time visitors to Japan are often surprised at the size of accomodations available as well as the high costs. We do provide many photos and the total square meters are clearly shown on our listing.

“Small but charming place in a top neighbourhood of Tokyo”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

The Tokhous 201 is a wonderful place to stay, well equiped, extremely well organized and convenient. Richard Ashley is a perfect host who has helped us to find our way in Tokyo. The place is ideal for a couple; we traveled with a teenager daughter plus a adult friend. With four adults the Tokhouse becomes a little cramped. Still we had a perfect time in Tokyo and we loved the neighbourhood. After a while we learned to live in a small place and we rather liked it. And everything worked!!!!

“very comfortable and convenient”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We landed in Tokyo on Sunday afternoon after a 14-hour direct flight from the States and used our Japan Rail passes to travel from Narita airport to Nishi Nippori, the JR station nearest to Tokhouse. Richard met us at the station and we went to the house, about a 5-minute walk from the station. Very comfortable, everything we needed in the way of towels and beds and kitchen ware, and everything in working order. Neighborhood is quiet, plenty of stores and restaurants nearby, and there's an ATM in the neighborhood post office that issues cash advances from overseas credit cards. Overall a very good and economical choice because there were 3 adult-sized people traveling together and we were all quite comfortable. Only caveat: not recommended for anyone who doesn't want to deal with stairs.

“The most convenient place to many things you could need on vacation.”

The owner of the Tok House, Richard is very accommodating and will recommend whatever you wish. He is very professional and met us (in the middle of the night!) at the house to assist with all its intricacies and offered suggestions for many things to do around the neighborhood and beyond. The best thing about the house is you feel like you are getting a cultural experience you would not be able to get from a hotel. The location of the Tok House is in the middle of a commercial like neighborhood, but is situated in an alley that is typically one that is imagined in Japan. The house cannot be accessed directly in front of the house, but very close. At first, we thought stairs to 201 were steep and narrow, however we soon realized that steep narrow stairs are fairly typical in Japan. If you need a room without stairs, 102 has only one step up into the unit, which was quite comfortable with the described amenities. Would stay again! Thank you, Richard!
