    Jin-kun and Yuri-chan are such sweethearts! They made me feel right at home with numerous small conversations we had through translation app. They are always welcoming me to sit with them and share my day with them. I bought some flowers and was pleasantly surprised that Yurico is an expert in Japanese floral arrangement Ikebana, and she skilfully presented a tablepiece which I loved so much! The house is rustic and my room is spacious where i got a lot of privacy.
    From Tabata station (Yamanote Line), there is BUS 44 which takes me (15 minutes) to a bus stop 1 minute away from their house. The same bus terminates at Kita-senju station (15 minutes further) that has a local mall and many more eateries. Where the house located, there is a convenience shop, supermarket and scattered local eateries along the street. There is another Machiya station (Keisei Line) which is walking distance 950m away.

    I hadn't had the time to leave a comment until now. My stay was perfect and they were both adorable ! Several months have passed since my stay in August but memories stayed.

    Thank you for the delicious breakfasts and nice talks while we watched TV and baseball.

    If I go back to Tokyo (which I hope I will), I hope I can stay with them again!

    Yuriko and her husband were great hosts. Very easy to stay with and the house is convenient to bus, metro and JR train. She cooked breakfast in the morning and we chatted before I headed out for the day. I came home by 10 pm or 1030 pm, and would shower in the morning. Yuriko's husband dropped me off at the metro station on my last day. I speak Japanese so it was easy to communicate. If you don't speak Japanese, Yuriko was good with using translator apps. Very authentic Japanese family experience that I would highly recommend.

    I had the most wonderful stay with Yuriko this past August. The room is very large and comfortable, and the house will give you the authentic Japanese experience. I really enjoyed chatting with Yuriko and his husband every morning during breakfast. They were very helpful and made my stay in Tokyo absolutely unforgettable!

    I stayed with Yuriko-san and Jin-san for one week. I highly recommend their homestay in Arakawa for anyone traveling to Tokyo. Yuriko made me delicious breakfast every day, and I really enjoyed chatting with them in the evenings while watching television. They took great care of me! If you don't speak Japanese, Yuriko is very patient and uses a translation app to help communicate with guests. The neighborhood around their home is also very cute and peaceful. Thank you Yuriko-san and Jin-san!
