About the Homestay
Hi, this is Yumi. I live with my husband Taka in Setagaya district, Tokyo. About 3-4 mins one way from Station on foot. 15 mins for Shinjuku,20 mins for Shibuya, and Kichijoji by train. You can use shared kitchen upstairs where guests stay. There are two twin rooms and one double bedded room. I and Taka live downstairs. I look after guests. I don't stay upstairs all day but in case you need my help, there's interphone. You can use shared living dining kitchen, bath with shower and toilet for guests. We have the same style kitchen downstairs for ourselves. I have some pet downstairs like chickens, lovebirds, etc. They don’t go upstairs. When you need my help for Japanese, or shopping, you can feel ease to call me through interphone anytime. Taka is a bit shy, but we want to be useful people for everyone. Hope you can enjoy your stay in Tokyo.

My stay at Yumi`s house was simply wonderful. She and her husband are very nice people who welcomed me right away. The house was perfectly run and I had no issue whatsoever. She made sure that basic stuff was always in the fridge or on the cupboards. The bed in the single room was comfortable and the room clean. The bathtub is simply amazing and it welcomed even a big guy like me. The house is located in a quiet and safe area close to main nightlife spots like Shimokitazawa, and also quite close to Shinjuku, Shibuya and Akihabara.
