    We stayed 5 nights and loved it! The hosts were very friendly, and the location is excellent. It feels both very close to the craziness that is shinjuku area, but also removed just enough as to be peaceful and residential. Talking w/Aki was fun and gave us a better understanding of the culture. Would recommend to others!

    This was for sure the best HomeStay ever. I stayed 3 weeks at Yoko and Aki's house and it was the time of my life ! Aki and Yoko are the sweetest, funniest and most caring hosts. It was my first time in Japan and they gladly helped me a lot with what to visit, the transportation and so on. On my first day Yoko welcolmed me with delicious Yakisoba. Aki made us breakfast every morning and it was the best moment of the day since I got to make friends with wonderful and funny housemates staying in the other rooms of the house. Besides breakfast, Aki also made us dinner 2 times and entertained us with really good jokes ! Yoko is super fun as well, once she invited us to eat Yakiniku and then we went to Karaoke. It was one of the best day ever. Besides, they are really caring, they will make your laundry if you ask them or show you how to do it. I really felt at home at Aki and Yoko's house. They are the best ! I will for sure book again at their house next time I come to Japan!!

    Not sure where to start but after traveling to Japan over 10+ times this was the most memorable stay I ever made here in Japan. I made a lot of friends during my stay and the host - Yoko & Aki were helpful, fun, and caring people and breakfast time was the best to get to know everyone and practice Japanese. This place treat people as a family with respect to each other. I will miss Karaoke time and Aki's spaghetti! I miss everyone I met already and would love to stay with them again in the future.

    Nous avons passé 3 nuit chez Yoko et il faut dire que c'était très court.
    Nous avons été reçu comme des membres de la famille, chaque soir et chaque matin nous passions des heures a raconter nos journée, et nos vies, autour d'une bonne bière !!!!! Ambiance très conviviale.
    Yoko nous a beaucoup aidé dans nos déplacements
    Si vous passez quelques jours à Tokyo je vous la recommande vivement.
    Merci pour tout

    Yoko and Aki are the best. They are very kind and funny. It was my first time in Japan. I arrived on late evening. Yoko had prepared delicious yakisoba. I also met another guys that evening and we have became friends. Another day Yoko took us to yakiniku and karaoke. It was great time. She had also prepared oishi onigiri and kare raisu on other days. However, most of the time we were spending with Aki. He was preparing for us breakfasts every single day, telling us jokes. Sometimes, especially for us, he was preparing the dinners. Those were a works of art and masterpieces. He is perfect at cooking. I will miss those mornings and evenings in which Aki entertained us with funny stories. I had the time of my life. I hope I will come back. Thank you very much!

    What a great place. I felt welcomed and cozy the entire time at the homestay. The location is VERY convenient. The bus service is explained by the hosts and I was even taken to the stops to know their locations. Overall a great experience, and I will return. The hosts are gems.

    Je suis restée trois mois dans la maison de Aki et Yoko. Ce fut un séjour extrêmement agréable. En effet, Aki et Yoko vous accueille comme leur famille, très chaleureusement. Yoko aura toujours plaisir à discuter avec vous ou vous préparer de bons petits plats. Et Aki aura toujours des choses intéressantes à vous raconter ainsi que de très bonnes blagues ! Les deux chats de la maison vous accueilleront également, surtout Yuki la plus câline et Gin est très mignon aussi. J’ai beaucoup apprécié mon séjour, nous avons fait beaucoup d’activités ensemble comme un karaoké, pique-niquer sous les cerisiers en fleurs, ainsi que le festival de la glace à Sapporo avec Yoko. Avec les autres occupants de la maison nous avons partagé de nombreux repas. Par ailleurs, Aki et Yoko répondront à toutes vos questions sur le Japon et auront toujours envie de vous faire découvrir leur culture. J’ai été très heureuse avec Yoko et Aki, et si je reviens à Tokyo je n’hésiterai à revenir chez eux.
    La maison est très confortable et très belle. Les pièces sont grandes et vous avez tout à votre disposition dans la chambre : télé, frigo, armoire, bureau. La maison est très bien située proche de la gare de métro et d’un arrêt de bus. Sans oublier le supermarché à l’angle de la rue ouvert 24h sur 24h. Le quartier est très calme et très agréable. Autour de la maison, le quartier de Shinjuku est vraiment proche. Mais également la station de Nakano qui très sympa pour les adeptes de mangas et la station Sasazuka qui dessert l’ouest de Tokyo.
    Je ne peux que vous recommander vivement votre séjour à Tokyo chez eux car j’y ai vécu une expérience inoubliable :)

    I stayed three months in the house of Aki and Yoko. It was an extremely pleasant stay. Indeed, Aki and Yoko welcome you as their family, very warmly. Yoko will always enjoy chatting with you or preparing good food. And Aki will always have interesting things to tell you as well as very good jokes! The two cats of the house will also welcome you, especially Yuki the most affectionate and Gin is very cute too. I really enjoyed my stay, we did a lot of activities together like a karaoke, picnicking under the cherry blossoms, as well as the ice festival in Sapporo with Yoko. With the other occupants of the house we shared many meals. In addition, Aki and Yoko will answer all your questions about Japan and will always want to make you discover their culture. I was very happy with Yoko and Aki, and if I come back to Tokyo I will not hesitate to come back home.
    The house is very comfortable and very beautiful. The rooms are large and you have everything at your disposal in the room: TV, fridge, wardrobe, desk. The house is very well located near the metro station and a bus stop. Not to mention the supermarket at the corner of the street open 24 hours. The neighborhood is very quiet and very nice. Around the house, the district of Shinjuku is really close. But also the Nakano station which is very nice for fans of mangas and the Sasazuka station which serves West of Tokyo.
    I can only highly recommend your stay in Tokyo at home because I had an unforgettable experience :)
