    Kana was an awesome host. We felt as we were a part of the family. We’ll miss Niko she was the real kawaii dog. We enjoyed Tokyo a lot and are really thankful for all the help and warmth Kana has been providing us. Without her help our stay couldn’t be so pleasant.
    I hope we see you again pretty soon!
    Best wishes

    I cannot fault Kana's kindness and generosity, she had meals with me several times including inviting me to meet her family and close friends which was so much fun. Her family are really friendly and welcoming! She also spoke with me in Japanese all the time to help me practice and was very patient. The bathroom also has a great shower.
    I couldn't put five stars however because the house was just not clean enough ( dog hair and dust in the corners, shower plug was cleaned by other guest! ) and the layout upstairs was not as as advertised, there was no sofa and the dining chairs have been replaced by a single long bench. My bed was also against a window, and the chair in my room was just a stool with a metal bar on the back meaning there was nowhere in the entire house where I could just lean back against a wall/ chair/ sofa and relax. I wouldn't have minded if I was warned before-hand, but I specifically chose this home for the mentions of cleanliness on the reviews and because it pictured a sofa to relax on... What I will say is Kana is busy but extremely kind and clearly has the best of intentions, I will always remember her efforts to make my time special by inviting me out and chatting with me.

    Kana was friendly to us; however, she was very busy with other work and was not available much of the time. Her home is very close to an underground station (Ochiai-minami-nagasaki on the Oedo line) and near a supermarket, a few restaurants and even a McDonald’s.

    The larger room with 2 beds (a futon and a bunk bed with a thin mattress) is adjacent to the smaller room; separated by a sliding door where another guest may be staying. The room has a heater/AC but, due to the positioning of the beds, it leaves much of the room cold in winter.

    The showering facilities are very good. There is also a dog in the house (mostly stays upstairs and is friendly).
    The room we stayed in was not as clean as we would have hoped, and it was a cluttered for its size.

    Please be clear on the rules concerning breakfast upon arrival. Breakfast was not provided and it wasn’t clear that we should help ourselves. For this we were compensated for, however.

    A delicious homemade meal of Osechi was made for us on New Year's Day.

    Overall, our trip felt more like a stop in an Air B&B rather than a homestay.

    Kana is an amazing person. I felt very welcomed, and she made sure I was comfortable. The house was warm, modern, and very clean.

    Nous avons passé 6 nuits chez Kana et son mari, et c'était à la hauteur de nos attentes. L'accueil a été très bien. Sa maison est très bien située aussi, à 5 minutes à pied de la station de métro sur une ligne qui dessert très bien Tokyo. Seule remarque, les matelas un peu durs peut-être. Mais le rapport qualité/prix est au rendez-vous. Ne pas hésiter.

    Kana san and her husband were very good hosts, and Rico was an adorable dog. My last day was admirable for me when I had to come home and cried. I did not usually do this, but I felt at home and it was bad for I to come. I'm lucky I chose them. I met Joshua here with a New Zealand boy. We all went to have fun and watch the city, it was super. I'm going back in December, hopefully I can go back Kana san. KANA さん すべて本当に本当に感謝しています.

    Staying with Kana and Isao was such a joy and a pleasant experience. I was a solo female traveller and felt totally at home, safe and comfortable at their home. They were not only generous with their home but also their time! I spent many enjoyable nights watching shows and chatting with them, which made the whole experience so much more memorable. Their dog, Rico was so lovable and made the entire place even more warm! I felt like I found a second home in Tokyo because of Kana and Isao’s hospitality and I am already looking forward to my next trip to Tokyo!

    Kana-san is the best homestay host you can have in Tokyo! I am a solo student traveler from Singapore and she helped me immensely with her recommendations and sometimes even brought me out for a good Japanese meal! Her house is a 3 minute walk away from the train station, a 24-hour convenience store and a late-night ramen store as well.

    Her house is cozy and warm, Riko is a wonderfully cute dog and I cannot describe how warm her hospitality is. She even helped me print train maps, provided me with advice on the fastest way to get to my destinations and even brought me around whenever she was free.

    I could not have asked for a better homestay in Japan for such a price. I would definitely go back if I have the chance!
