    We had such a great stay here! The facilities were nice and comfortable. It was very fun sleeping on futon mattresses on traditional tatami floor for us. The host, Yoko, was amazing and extremely nice and accommodating; she made us feel very much at home. We had such a great time talking with her. This stay will be a very special memory and one of the biggest highlights of our trip

    It was a little bit of a walk from the station, though the location was still nice and in a quiet neighborhood. We were able to walk to all the major sightseeing spots from the guest house so having to walk a little further initially was well worth the location

    Yoko was an incredibly friendly and personable host. Her place is clean and comfortable. Like staying with a good friend, you feel right at home. Her place is really well-located and within walking distance to the subway/train station. Would definitely stay with her again!

    A little gem! Yoko is the nicest host! Trust the comments - if you want a once in a lifetime experience in a guesthouse in Japan, stay here. The double bedroom was really nice too, plenty of space. Location is perfect - bike rental 1 min from the house and close to main points. I can’t recommend it enough!!!

    Thanks Yoko san for her hospitality, my parents and i had an unforgettable stay here. We not only tried the tatami and the traditional japanese house,but also chatted together with her friends, which let us know more about japanese people and life. From this point of view , the experience is far more valued than we paid for the stay.
