“SIMPLY PERFECT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

All was perfect. We was 6 people from France and we will go back in this house for sure. It was not very expensive. The house is near the yamanote's line and near Yanaka too.
Thank you soo much and see you soon .
Bye

“The Best Little Tokhouse in Tokyo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

Having obtained some very cheap plane tickets from Australia to Tokyo (Narita) in October 2013 I then started looking for somewhere to stay. After many hours of internet searching, the usual lists of hotel accomodation just didn't seem to be making an impression on my planned adventure to Japan. That was until I serendipitously came across Tokhouse 101. I read the details provided on the official website and also the reviews from those who had stayed there. I was sold on the idea of a vacation house.

I made my booking for eight days during May 2014 through the website and was contacted by email by Richard the owner with the details of the availability and how to pay the deposit. All this was handled very efficiently. Prior to my arrival I corresponded with Richard by email with regard to some ideas I had for our itinerary and he was able to give his valued advice and suggestions.

Our arrival at Narita Airport went smoothly and we were quickly on our way to Nippori Station on board the Keisei Skyliner. A change of trains at Nippori Station and in a few minutes we were at Nishinippori Station and on our way to the Tokhouse which was only a bit over five minutes from the station. Richard then gave us an orientation of the Tokhouse and also provided us with detailed information about nearby restaurants, shops and places of interest.

The Tokhouse was very clean, spacious and well appointed. It was a perfect base for all we wanted to do. It was close to the train station and the JR Yamanote line which gave us easy access to all the major areas of Tokyo - Tokyo Station 13 minutes - Shinjuku Station 20 minutes. The neighbourhood surrounding the Tokhouse was very pleasant and we found some excellent places to eat and shop.

Staying at Tokhouse 101 was a highlight of our trip to Tokyo and Richard was an excellent host.

“Like being at home”

Having lived in Tokyo before, staying at Tokhouse was like coming home. Its a real japanese home, but remodeled for taller people ;)
Everything you need is there, with lots of space and practically installed. We received a very good introduction to everything and some very usefull maps from our host!
Close to the Yamanote you are everywhere in no time and there are lots of good shops and restaurants around.
If I can, I will definetly come back to stay there again!

“Perfect introduction to an tokyo urban adventure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The house is located in a quaint and atmospheric area. A mixture of old and new residences in narrow streets and laneways and just a short stroll to the local restaurants/bars. Too many positives to list, Richard was invaluable as a source of local knowledge. His recommendations were worthwhile and contributed to our 'Tokhouse' experience. He is definitely on to something here.. it was ...FUN!

“Cant go wrong.”

We stayed at Tokhouse101 for 5 nights. It was a pleasant experience overall. The only downside I found was there was only one toilet and one shower. Besides that, the place is cozy and the price is very reasonable. I like how close it is to groceries and the rail transit which makes it really convenient for first time visitors. The owner was also kind enough to provide maps of Tokyo which we found very useful. He also gave us his recommendations of tourists spots and restaurants around the area. I would recommend the place.

Thank you for your kind review and being such great guests. Guest coming to Japan for the first time are often surprised at the size and cost of accommodations. Most places are much smaller and do not have a separate toilet and shower/bath.

My group of three rented out Tokhouse 102 and 201 for two weeks and we were very satisfied. We could have easily had three more people staying with us in the same rooms with little inconvenience. The apartments had all the comforts and conveniences of home; we really liked the free high speed WiFi in particular. The station was a very short walk away (~8 minutes) if we wanted to explore the city, and there were a variety of restaurants and stores near the apartment if we needed something quickly.

I recommend TokHouse to anyone who wants to explore Tokyo at their leisure.
