I had a grate time with my " family " . The room was clean and nice. Breakfast and the dinner was lovely. It was very near to the Train station . If I get back to Tokyo, I want hesitate to visit Tomokos home.
I stayed with Tomoko for 2 nights.
Tomoko is an incredible host. Very friendly and caring. Her meals are delicious.
The place is very clean. This is a very good option for people who want to experience staying with locals, eat delicious food and spend a couple of nights in a nice place.
A very late review, since my computer was wrecked on the flight home and it's taken me a while to save up for a new one and log back in. Sorry for the tardiness, Tomoko-san.
Tomoko-san and her husband were both a joy to stay with in the time I was in Japan. The food was excellently cooked, I was looked after and the stay was about as comfortable as I can honestly imagine it getting. I have zero complaints, besides that perhaps your typical Japanese home isn't built to accommodate someone my size, though that is more an awkward quirk of architecture I learned to deal with without issue.
I can emphatically say, without a doubt, that I recommend Tomoko-san to anyone hoping to stay in the Tokyo area. It's a bit of a train trip in but I found that gave me ample time to get some reading done. She is fluent, cosmopolitan, open-minded and a great conversationalist and I never seemed to be starved of new facts when speaking to her. As someone that came to Japan to learn, I can say in hindsight that she fulfilled that need readily and with little to no issue.
I still rave and gush to my friends when I speak about my trip there and for good reason. It still feels like an understatement to say I had a good time there. Thank you once again Tomoko-san, and I hope you'll have me again some day.
I stayed with Tomoko for 6 nights, her house was beautiful and a short walk away from 2 train stations directly connected to Shinjuku the heart of Tokyo. Tomoko made everything easy giving me all the information I needed for my first trip to Japan and she even picked me up from the bus stop. Without her help arriving in Tokyo alone would have been slightly daunting and overwhelming.....
I highly recommend her home stay for anyone and would advise my friends to book the same in the future.
Her cooking was delicious and she even gave me a 3 hour window for breakfast which I didn’t expect.
Thank you Tomoko see you again in Japan or Europe.
Tomoko-san's homestay experience is a fantastic value proposition. The opportunity to explore Japanese culture while staying with a Japanese family eating Japanese meals at an affordable price is so much better than just staying at a regular hotel.
Conversations were fun and there was always something interesting to learn through her various experiences. Tomoko-san was always available for any questions and advice regarding sightseeing and even helped me get some nicely engraved Fuji chopsticks as I had run out of time in my explorations to get souvenirs.
Tomoko-san prepared delicious breakfast and dinner daily and introduced me to several Japanese dishes. She was incredibly kind as to include potatoes in my meals upon request and super flexible about the time for breakfast (7 am for me) and skipping dinner (with due notification in advance).
The yukata experience was also a lot of fun as another guest joined in on and Tomoko-san helped us get dressed in a traditional Japanese manner and took pictures for us.
Didn't get to interact much with the other family members but the cats were super friendly. Overall a 10/10 experience that I'd definitely do again!
J'ai passé un excellent séjour chez Tomoko, un bon point de départ pour partir à la découverte du Japon. Je m'y suis senti comme à la maison, la chambre est confortable, les repas sont très bon, et Tomoko a toujours quelque chose d'intéressant à raconter.
Encore merci pour ton accueil, et bon courage pour tes cours de français ! ;)
I'm a bit late on my review. I was at Tomoko's house in March of this year.
It was my first trip to Japan and Tomoko's house was my first homestay. I stayed there with a friend. We were both grateful for Tomoko's hospitality and kindness. It was a really nice introduction to the country and to have not only breakfast but also diner at her house was awesome. Her cooking was delicious ! The room was also really comfy. Well, there was only good during this stay so for that, again, thank you so much Tomoko !
Because I liked my stay with Tomoko two years ago, I decided to once again stay with her.
Just like two years ago, I think I made the right decision in doing so. Every day she prepared a different tasty and varied breakfast, and on the days I ate dinner at 'home' it was equally delicious and varied.
I often did not have dinner at her home due to other plans interfering, but Tomoko did not make an issue of this because I notified her a day or more in advance. Equally breakfast had a large time-frame so waking up late was not an issue as long as I told her beforehand.
In addition; the interactions with Tomoko were fun and helped me improve my Japanese a little bit. Interacting with the other guests that stayed at her place at the same time was equally fun and interesting to learn more about the world and different cultures.
My homestay at Tomoko's house was beyond wonderful! I really enjoyed having breakfast and dinner she prepared, it was always very delicious and pleasing to the eye. Besides of being a busy host, Tomoko always had time to talk during and after the meals. As Tomoko is fluent in English, I learned a lot from her about life in Japan. I'm glad she did my laundry as I travel light. Also, the cats are very cute :) So if I ever come back to Tokyo, I will definitely stay at Tomoko's house again!
When do I pay?
Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.
