About the Homestay
I enjoy meeting people from all around the globe and sharing good times with them.
I'd be very happy if I could be of any help during / even before your stay.
So feel free to ask anything - getting around in Japan, learning Japanese, experiencing Japanese cultures and what not. ( I offer cooking lessons for about 2000 yen to 3000 depening on what we cook and free Kimono/ Yukata experience for those who stay with us more than 6 nights. )
With our guests, we enjoy talking, exchanging cultures and sometimes partying or eating out.
I hope all our guests know more about our culture and like our country even better.
During your stay, I prepare two meals ( full breakfast and dinner included ) every day and clean your rooms and do your laundry regularly.
We have a separate bathroom only for our guests' use.
We have free unlimited WiFi throughout our house. Besides that we also have mobile Wi-Fi to rent out by the day on a first-come, first-served basis. This enables you to get the internet connection everywhere, which solves the inconvenience most foreigners are likely to experience while in Japan.
There are three supermarkets nearby, one within one minute walk, another within five minutes and the other in about a seven minute walk.
One is 24/7 and the others are open till 11pm and midnight.
Our city is located in the west of central Tokyo with the train station which has one of the largest numbers of passengers in Japan.
It has a big shopping area where you can enjoy a different kinds of shops, restaurants and even a huge national park nearby.
Many mangas are taking place and movies were shot here in our city.

An amazing stay with Tomoko! She is a wonderful host!
She was really helpful and welcoming, I felt like home. The house was great!
The food she made every day was delicious and we had great conversations about our lifes and our cultures. I even had the chance to try on a beautiful kimono thanks to her help!
I recommend Tomoko for everyone who wants to wants to have an authentic and human experience in Japan :)
Thank you so much again, Tomoko !
We really enjoyed our stay with Tomoko. She was a fabulous host and incredibly helpful! Not only was she able to give us lots of tips for things to see in Tokyo, but she also gave us advice for the next step of journey in Kyoto. Tomoko made us feel so welcome in her home and we loved having the opportunity to ask her lots of questions about Japanese life and culture. I would absolutely 100% recommend this home stay and hope that we can stay here again when we visit Japan again in the future. Thank you Tomoko!!
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
We had a great short-stay at Tomoko's clean house. Communication in English was very good. Her house was near public transportation so getting around was also easy. Conveniently near a supermarket as well.
We did not share a meal with the whole family but Tomoko took the time to prepare tasty breakfast and dinner whilst we stayed there.
Good choice to stay if you're looking for a place to sleep.
Tomoko is a wonderful hostess, it was very interesting to talk on various topics. Cozy house has everything you need. Very cute cats. Hope to see you again soon. ♡
Tomoko was fantastic she was so helpful the meals were great and she helped us in so many ways. The only downside was we did get to speak to the rest of the family they were busy.

Had an amazing stay in Tokyo and Tomoko was a great host! She was great to talk to and had wonderful advise on places to go and things to see, and the food was delicious. I'm already thinking about another trip and can't wait to go back to see both Tomoko and Japan again!
Tomoko was a lovely hostmom to us! It felt like home and her food was incredible, considering our intolerances. She took care of us very well and helped us with our trip whenever she could. We had a lot of fun with her and her kitty cats!
We felt in love with Tokyo. The metro system is really simple to understand. Every district had an own atmosphere. So it never gets boring. Such a impressive city!
We are missing our japanese home very much!! Hope to see you again Tomoko! ♡
Our stay at Tomokos place was really good.
She picked us up from our meeting point by car.
And she always made really tasty breakfast and dinner and always took allergies and intolerances of all her guests into account.
The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable and she also did our laundry.
If we or other guests needed any help for example with bus booking or had any questions she always helped right away.
Last but not least she took time to also dress her female guests in a Kimono if they wanted.
If we need a stay near Tokyo we would choose her again.
We had a really great time at her place.
