A little late, but I havent forgot anything.
My stay at Aks-san's place was amazing. I stayed with them for one month, everything was just fine. The kids are great, specially the youngest one Yu.
Aki kept trying to speak Japanese with me (I was in Japan for that), but my skills were (are) still very low. By the end I could understand her a lot better but still had a hard time understanding the kinds.
Sometimes I requested her to cook for me, it was delicious. If you're staying at their place, keep in mind it's better to have her make dinner for you because it's gonna cost almost the same as from the Kombini, but tastes way better.
Massa-san (the father) is very nice, and he is a hard worker, we barely saw each other because on week ends I was always out.
The location Is awesome, just 1 station from Yamanote Line, I went to Shinjuku (everyday) in 20 minutes. Fo my previous trips to Tokyo, I was way further.
It's a nice family, very respectful and hard workers.
Aki and family are wonderful. I was made to feel at home and relaxed. A great experience and definitely would go back if the opportunity arose in the future. Thank you Aki and family!
I was referred to Aki by a friend of mine who had previously stayed with her family. He mentioned that they are the most caring and genuine people that he has ever met and how they really do make you feel a part of the family. Aki, her husband, and her two sons were the best hosts that I could have asked for.
Her boys are the nicest and most well-mannered kids I've come across, especially with strangers living with them. They love playing video games on their Nintendo switch with you. Aki is a great host, she gave us a lot of different ideas for activities that's happening within Tokyo during our stay which was very helpful.
It was an experience that I will never forget and relationship with the family that I definitely will maintain. I strongly suggest anyone who is looking for a trusting family to stay with, you've found your host. Her house is very clean, with lots of space in the bedroom for your bags and souvenirs if you need. Her house is also very conveniently located along the subway line, roughly 10 minute walk away. 7/11 is also very conveniently located along the way.
Thank you for everything Aki! Hope to visit you and your family again sometime soon.
I had a really great time in Tokyo and at Aki's house! It's placed in a really convenient area, only four to five minutes to the nearest station, and you can get everywhere very easily.
Aki and her family were really nice, the kids were very active (in a positive way) and I felt very welcomed. My room was big and Aki gave me a lot recommedations where to go or where to eat.
I'm happy I stayed with them and if someday I'll go to Tokyo again, I hope to stay with them again!!

Es war ein toller Aufenthalt, man hat sich willkommen gefühlt, das Zimmer war auch in Ordnung und sauber. Es war schön sich Abends etwas mit Aki und ihrer Familie zusammen zu setzen, nachdem die tägliche Besichtigungstour erledigt war. Ich wäre gern länger geblieben.
It was a great stay, I felt welcome from the first moment, the room was clean and in good shape.
Also I liked to sit with Aki and her family after sightseeing. I would like to have stayed longer.
Very friendly and kind people, I am happy I was able to meet them ! They seak good English, too. And their two boys were a lot of fun ! The house is in a very convenient place, there are trains and subway closeby in every direction so it's easy to get anywhere around Tokyo. I enjoyed my stay very much! Thank you!
My stay with Aki and her family was great, they where super kind and i felt warm welcomed from the very first day! I was not able to stay a lot at home cause i was having japanese lessons but if i come to tokyo again, i'll try to stay with them for sure! A plus also is that the house is very well communicated with important metro stations!
I had a great time staying with Aki, Masa and kids. The whole family is lovely and kind upon arrival I was made to feel very welcomed. They all really added to my experience and gave great advice on places to visit whilst staying in Tokyo. I highly recommend staying with this family if you decide to do a home stay experience.
I stayed with Aki and her family for 1 week, and she was an amazing host! We chatted frequently throughout the week, and she gave me many suggestions for what to do in the Tokyo area. Her home was very cozy, and the neighborhood has a very urban Japanese atmosphere. Playing games with her children throughout the week, despite a small language barrier, was lots of fun as well! I definitely recommend a stay with Chiaki if you're looking to experience the Tokyo area while having a place to stay outside of the busy city.
Aki and her family are amazing! They are a wonderful family to stay with. I loved playing with the kids, they have so much energy! Thanks for letting me go to the school's sports festival! Thanks to Masa for taking me to the beer festival and to meet his friends! This is exactly why I wanted to do a homestay. Many thanks Aki to you and your family! I will miss you guys!
