Yuka and Masuto were nice and warm hosts. Instruction to their house was perfect and it's quite accessible through the metro from hibarigaoka station. Though slightly far from central Tokyo , if you like commuting by metro exploring Tokyo you will like it, if you are into visiting places and sight seeing , travel could take time out. But apart from location, everything was perfect. As they mentioned , room is close to rail tracks , so people having trouble with train sounds may get a little difficult but after a long tiring day , it shouldn't be a problem, already I slept sound and well, room was small and cozy enough. The hosts were very warm and gentle and helpful and it was very private , solo travellers just who are into commuting and exploring Tokyo in its natural way of life will like it here . Both Yuka and Masuto helped with any info and agreed for early check in as well without any hassle , it was very easy and approachable communicating with them, place has accessibility to all essentials - supermarkets and train connectivity is till midnight, only travel time is a disadvantage rest it is a very good place to stay and super cool hosts. They have options for food menu at decent prices if open for home food , I didn't try as usually had outside and was late, but it should be delicious .

Nice hosts, very helpful and flexible. We enjoyed our stay at their house the to the authentic experience they shared with us - we tried out kimono, had tea ceremony and then had a traditional breakfast cooked by Yuka ( it was a day saver when it was pouring rain) They also checked out Free sumo fights for us and overall were great. The room is humble, but clean and for those who appreciate "more for less" and come to Tokyo to leave early and come back late after 10+ exploring this magnificent city, this is the perfect place!

We stayed again in Yuka's place after a short trip from Tokyo to Aomori. They were kind enough to allow us to leave our luggage in their home for a night. We spent the evening learning how to cook Japanese meals from Yuka ... we learned to cook Japanese Curry Rice, Ramen and Okonomiyaki. The lesson was easy and really fun. I would highly recommend this to other guests. We had good and enjoyable dinner with Yuka and Masato... we felt like we are just having dinner with friends! There's also a supermarket close to their house and I recommend this place for getting snacks and cup noodles as souvenirs. We are glad to have made new friends with our hosts and get to experience the authentic Japanese culture during our stay. Thank you, Yuka, Masato and Pooja for making our stay in Tokyo so memorable!!

The place is about 45mins to an hour to Tokyo center - you need to transfer at least 2-3 trains to go to places like Ginza, Harajuku, Roppongi, Shinjuku or Shibuya - you have to budget about 600-800yen (daily-depending on where you're going) - AND, be prepared to walk a lot, as there are no taxis in the area - from Hibarigaoka station to Yuka & Masato's house, it could take about 10-15mins on foot. With the cold weather - its not a very pleasant walk. My experience when I arrived from Narita airport (4hour from Manila) - I transferred to about 4 trains to reach Hibarigaoka station. It was about 7or8PM and it began to rain - no taxis and I am forced to walk in the rain (12degrees) with luggage in tow. If you are on the adventurous side, this may be the place for you.

Yuka-San and her husband are wonderfully patient, helpful and considerate hosts! They are also excellent English speakers. Their home is rich in culture, jam-packed with a wide array of activities (let's not forget about their adorable poodle). I had the amazing opportunity to learn from Yuka-San both the Shamisen 三味線 and Koto 琴. She patiently answered my questions and even performed a piece for me! I will strongly recommend avid Japanese culture travellers to highly consider staying in her home to gain a first hand experience at her home. For those who are light sleepers, it may be a concern as the home is located right next to the railway.
