We had a very pleasant stay at Tokhouse. The house was exactly as expected, very clean and well equipped.
The owner met us at Nishi-Nippori subway station which is rather close to the house (15 minutes walking) and came with us at the house. He then explained us the rules of the house and gave us a lot of useful maps of the city.
Close to the house there are shops and supermarkets and a good small restaurant (Tenka ichi, traditional japanese food) where we had dinner three times.
Also close to the house is Yanaka Ginza street, with many shops.
Ueno park is 15 minutes walking.
We highly recommend Tokhouse for your stay in Tokyo, it's like being at home!
location is great, 6 mins walking distance to subway and 3 mins to grocery store. on the main road, i enjoy the great ramen and it just took us 3 mins as well. house is clean, wifi is fast, and the owner make us flexible on check in / out time (for sure, we have to seek permission from the owner first :). thank you very much and we will visit again!
Tokhouse 102 was our first stay in Japan as part of a four week trip. It was a great size for 2 adults and 2 kids (11&7). There was plenty of room and it was nice and warm.
We were met at the train station which was very helpful and shown through the apartment.
The location is very convenient with lots of restaurants, supermarkets and the train station nearby.
It was great to have a washing machine and a little coffee pot.
Because this apartment is on the ground floor it does suffer a bit from noise from upstairs. Other than that it is a very quiet area.
We would recommend it to other families.
We (family of 5 with 3 children aged 19, 17 and 13) stayed in Tokhouse twice in December 2016. The first time was for 4 nights in apartment 101. We arrived into Tokyo very late (plane was delayed) and by the time we arrived at the train station to meet Richard (the owner) it was close to midnight and Rchard was waiting for us. He walked us back to the apartment (few minutes away) and explained all that we needed to know. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The first floor is kitchen and bathroom and the second floor is room for the mattresses, and a mezzanine floor for a further 2 mattresses. This is very typical in Japan however I found it a little difficult after a few days but the res of the family were fine. We were given precise instructions for whatever we asked which made it easier to travel. Our second stay was also for 4 nights however we stayed in apartment 102 which is only one level but was more than enough for us. The proximity to the train station is great, we explored lots by train and on foot locally. There is a bakery close by where we bought pastries for breakfast. There are 7/11 stores almost on every block. They were also willing to hold our luggage for the day. Would highly recommend, made our stay in Tokyo very comfortable.
Richard and Ay were true to their word and met us at the station on a late cold and rainy night. Disorientated with 3 young kids they were like a beacon on the horizon.
The vacation house was small but cosy, We felt safe and the neighbourhood allowed us to experience life in residential Japan. The markets were close and the grocery stores were nearby.
It was a clean rental with great bathroom facilities and allowed us to cook for the family.
We Recommend Tokhouse for an honest safe reliable bolt hole to use as a base to explore the delights Japan has to offer.
