My personal review , is base on what I experienced during my stay in shinjuku . We arrived this home stay on the 4th of October and been staying here for a month. We are very happy with the owner-Reiko san , who is also our Japanese language teacher . A very friendly Japanese lady . She provides us with clean and comfortable rooms . This location is very convenient. The building we are living is an apartment . Walking distance to all major convenient shops , restaurants , bus stops , hotel, supermarkets , post office , churches, shoping area and many more . Most importantly, the train station is just located 50 meters away . At any time , catching a train to go anywhere u intend to go is never a problem .In future , I will not hesitate to come to this home stay again . I will also recommend this unique and strategic location to all my friends . It’s is indeed a good choice to all . I highly suggest this homestay to everybody , it’s worth every dollar and cent u spent .
I enjoyed my stay and learned so much from staying at Reiko's place. Reiko is very kind and helpful to me who is from another country. Location is very convenient and close to the main road so it is personally too noisy for me. People smoking at the 1F wine shop bothers me a little.
Overall is a very 5 star homestay. I would like to come back and stay with Reiko again, but Reiko is fully booked all the time. I will try my luck next time.
My stay at Reiko's place was so nice ! She's been very friendly and helpful ! As it was my first time traveling alone, I was a bit stressed but Reiko was very nice to me so I felt reassured.
My stay at Ms. Reiko's place was wonderful. Ms Reiko is a lovely, kind and generous host and the discussions with her were very interesting and fun. The room was spacious and comfortable and I enjoyed being also able to use the kitchen, washing machine and other utilities. At the end of the day I felt like I was coming home and could enjoy the company of other apartment co-habitors. The only downside for me was that, it being a slightly older apartment, one could hear loud street noises during the night, which is a problem if you are a light sleeper like me. This was easily solved with earplugs so that I could enjoy the rest of my stay. Thank you very much again for a lovely time!
My 1 year stay with Reiko san has been one of the most delightful experiences in Japan. She is very, very kind and an inspiring personality. She has a beautiful, well maintained home where i have had a very enjoyable stay and have wonderful memories of.
We have had delightful conversations over shared meals and watching our weekly Sunday drama.
She has extended a lot support when i have been ill and i have looked to her for advices on many occasions. My parents have been at ease knowing that i was in a protective environment.
Thank you, Reiko San, for giving me a home away from home and making my stay in Japan so much easier. I truly miss you and look forward to seeing you again in the future.
I stayed for six months at Suzuki Reiko san apartment. It has been an experience that I will never forget. It is a very friendly and spacious apartment placed in a very convenient location. Furthermore, Suzuki san is always ready to help with everything. I would recommend it without any kind of hesitation.
Staying at Reiko-san's apartment was wonderful! It is right next to a train station and convenience stores in a quiet neighborhood. She is very friendly and kind, I wish I could have stayed there longer and if I am ever in Japan again for an extended amount of time I would not hesitate to book again. Reiko-san helped me practice Japanese and gave me advice about tourist sites in Tokyo, she was very hospitable, if you're looking for a place to stay in Tokyo this is a really good option!
Reiko san is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She is always smiling or laughing, and her home feels very welcoming and warm to everyone. Reiko san’s family are also delightful. We had such a great time there, she was always helpful and kind and created a perfect balance of interacting together and our own space. We also made good friends with the other guest and it was a great place to stay. Would highly recommend!

Reiko-san is very adorable, kind and interesting. Her house is clean and confortable.
I enjoyed staying in Reiko-san's house. Well situated (5 min by subway of Shinjuku station).
Thank you for your help and your kindness Reiko-san!
I don't have words to describe this experience in Reiko’s house. I spend the best experience in my life in Japan and I won't forget how Reiko take care of me. She was too sweet and comprehensive with me, she help me in everything. The house is really amazing, I felt it was comfortable and tidy. Everything was cleaned and beautiful. Live in Reiko´s house is marvellous and funny. She wasn’t only the owner of the house, she was my friend. I will back to Tokio and of course I want to live with my friend Reiko.
