Our place has lots of supermarkets, shopping centers, gym etc - so you don't really need to travel into central Tokyo for shopping!

My homestay with Toshiko-san was very comfortable and accommodating. The room felt very private and comfortable and had its own AC unit. The town is cute and enjoyable as well.
Toshiko-san and her family were very welcoming and even showed me around, helping me when I was lost or confused. The food I was provided was always delicious too. I very much recommend this homestay.
Covid-19 pandemic prevented me from traveling to Japan. Thus, cannot review host Toshiko in Saitama. Thank you.
I had a fantastic time with Toshiko and her family!! I miss them already. Toshiko and her family treated me like family as well. Toshiko is an amazing cook, and I really enjoyed her breakfasts and meals, they were wonderfully delicious and beautiful. The house was charming, and my room was very clean and comfortable. I adored the dog, Ron-chan. Toshiko went above and beyond to ensure that I was comfortable and had my needs met during the stay. Even though I do no speak Japanese, I enjoyed learning a few words with her, her husband, and the grandmother that lives with them. The neighborhood is quiet and has many beautiful parks in the surrounding area. Living with them was a great way to understand Japanese family life and culture. I was glad that I was able to spend time with a family of kind people. I would recommend staying with them to anyone!
Toshiko was absolutely lovely and went above and beyond to make sure that I was comfortable and was it was probably the best accommodation I have had. Could not recommended more.
This host is better that excellent.
They do excellent service and help in every thing.
The area is very quiet and safe.
The transport is easy to any destination.
