Mia figlia ed io siamo venute per la prima volta in Giappone, paese che consiglio di visitare per la meraviglia dei posti e per la gentilezza, l'educazione e il rispetto che si trovano ovunque.
Naoko è stata attenta e disponibile, fin dai primi contatti. Al nostro arrivo a Tokyo è stata un punto di riferimento importante, perché ci ha fornito indicazioni chiare e dettagliate per raggiungere la sua abitazione ed è venuta in stazione ad attenderci. Ci ha accolte in una casa indipendente posta in una zona tranquilla, semplice ma accogliente e dotata di tutto ciò che serve. Ci ha proposto di partecipare ad una lezione di canto dei suoi figli ( Opera) ed è stato un contatto piacevolissimo con la vita culturale del posto.
Durante il nostro soggiorno ci ha "viziate" dedicandoci attenzioni e cure; l'ultimo giorno ha partecipato, con i suoi deliziosi figli, alla festa di compleanno di mia figlia ed è stata una bellissima esperienza.
Nishiarai, luogo dove si trova la sua casa, è un angolo di tranquillità, dove si può scoprire una realtà tradizionale, con piccole botteghe e molti supermercati.
We had a wonderful stay with Naoko and her family! This was my boyfriend and I's first visit to Japan and we couldn't have had better hosts to help us get accustomed to our new surroundings. Naoko is so kind and friendly, and was nice enough to meet us at the train station when we arrived-- she even brought along umbrellas because it was snowing! Her home is very comfortable and we were allowed access to the first floor while she and her family stayed on the top floor. Our area included a futon room and a small kitchen/entertainment area, plus shower room and bathroom. We really enjoyed spending our mornings here and being able to relax and get ready before heading out to explore Tokyo.
Naoko was so kind as to prepare us lunch on our arrival day, and we had fun learning how to make temaki sushi! The next day, she invited us to join her and another homestay family for a homemade okonomiyaki dinner. We got to eat lots of okonomiyaki and spend time with the other guests, as well as Naoko's husband and two children. It was such an unforgettably wonderful experience getting to have a homemade Japanese dinner while learning to make origami with the kids! My boyfriend and I were so touched by the kindness and generosity we were shown. I am so grateful to Naoko and her amazing family; we hope to stay with them again the next time we visit Tokyo!
The best. An experience that you will never forget. Always helping and kind host that never let you hanging without an answer.
Naoko is a terrific host. Her home is an independent house, in which the guests can enjoy the spacious entire first floor, with fully equipped bathroom / kitchen and dining room. She lives at the second floor with her husband and two very adorable kids. Around her home there are a lot of restaurants and shops, including a wellness centre and a natural hot spring, which looks appealing, unfortunately our trip was too packed to try it out. Naoko's home provides an ideal homestay destination for travellers who wants to experience local Japanese family lifestyle with convenient transportation to center Tokyo.
Naoko was a very kind and accomodating host. She picked us up from the station and even prepared dinner for our first night. Really took care of me when I got sick unfortunately. Definetly Would stay here again if I have a chance to visit Tokyo again.
Naoko was so kind to share her house with us. She picked us up from the station, took care of all amenities (tatami, towels, kitchen, washer and dryer) and let us stay in a well sized space. Naoko is well traveled and easy to talk to about different experiences. Thanks so much Naoko :)
Ms Naoko is a nice host and her place is well kept.
The room is spacious and has all the basic needs for guests.
It is about 10 mins walk from Nishiarai train station, on flat ground.
There are 2 malls nearby to the place. One beside the train station and the other about 10 mins walk from home.
Is a peaceful neighbourhood and very safe during the night.
Recommended for those who wish to experience staying in a family home while in Tokyo.
Naoko and her family are welcoming, helpful and friendly.
It was nice to know them and I hope to have the opportunity to go another time to stay with them.
The available space is clean and equipped with every comfort.
The district is quiet and convenient to restaurants, shopping centers and the train station from which you can easily reach the center of Tokyo.
I highly recommend a stay from Naoko and her beautiful and warm family!
Naoko is a very attentive and kind person who made sure I had a nice time in Japan. She showed me around the neighborhood, she invited me to family outings on several occasions, and even prepared fruit plates for me when I fell sick. Her two children are also very fun to be around.
The guest room is a traditional Japanese-style room, which means the isolation is not that great, and that there is a futon. Having said that, I had no problems sleeping. There is a kitchen, toilet and shower (not shared with the family) which I could use whenever I wanted. That was really convenient and is something that you don't normally get to see during a homestay.
Train connections are very good and straightforward, I found myself not even looking at the train schedule after the first few days. There are many facilities in walking distance (supermarkets, a shopping mall with a cinema, massage and hair salons, karaoke, gyms). It's a suburb area of Tokyo, so it's a good place to relax after having too much fun in the city centre.
All in all a host I can recommend. Naoko won't bother you if you just want to do your own thing, but she will be there for you in case you need any help or just want someone to talk to.
We only stayed for one night at Naokos place, but it was a very nice environment and i can recoment it to everyone else.
