Other things to note

BAD POINTS-
We'd like to honestly list here any negatives that we can think of.

** This IS a slightly older Tokyo city house. If you are wanting Luxury accommodation, this may not suit you. However, it is very clean, comfortable and popular with families or groups. And we keep the price LOW!

** MACHIYA is in the more traditional area of Tokyo, near Ueno, Asakusa, Nippori and Tokyo stations. But if you are looking for a more "Americanized Tokyo" experience in the more crowded areas, this "down-town" adventure may not suit you. (However, this is EXACTLY the reason we love living here!)

** Tokyo is one of the world's busiest cities, and due to the convenience of the short walk to the station, restaurants and shops, you may hear train sounds and general city sounds.
If you are a light sleeper, let us know and we can provide earplugs.

Actually, many people have said this is a GOOD THING as it "saves them worrying about trying to keep quiet all the time"....."more relaxing than some city apartments...".

**There is no bathtub, but a large shower room, as pictured.

That's it....have we lost you yet? Hope not...

Totoro House is a renovated, traditional Japanese style city house with tatami flooring and futons. Futon beds are awesome because you can fold them away during the day and have lots of space. Sleeping on the tatami flooring is very comfortable and many families in Japan prefer it.
Totoro House features NEW Tatami Mats.

A cozy, homely apartment in a really convenient location. For those with a fear of Kanji, everything important is labels in English, and everything you could possibly need is provided. The hosts are also incredibly friendly. Highly recommended!

Thank you Brad for a lovely time at Totoro House. The house was beautiful, surprisingly spacious and spotless. It had all the basic amenities and some DVDs for us to watch. It was in a good location to get into town and in a nice neighbourhood. Perfect for a family. Most of all we were made to feel very welcome by Brad, who met us personally and gave us a brief tour and rundown of the house. He had also put together lots of useful information about Tokyo, including maps and local guides etc. There were lots of little touches around the house eg., translations on the remote control, which made life a little bit easier for us while staying there. Our favourite AirBnB experience. Thanks!

As a family of five visiting Tokyo for the first time, the Totoro house was ideal. Brad and Seiko are the perfect hosts, providing a wealth of vital information that made our transfer from the airport, and week in Tokyo a breeze. The house was clean, very comfortable and is well located close to a train line with easy access to both Narita airport and the city as a whole. The local dining scene was fantastic to explore with a wealth of traditional Japanese cuisine.

Totoro house was a great place for our family to stay at for 7 nights. Everything was well organised and the house suited our needs. It was great having a second toilet upstairs. Our children loved the nearby park. The house is very handy to transport and shops. We would definitely stay here again!

This charming house is located in a pleasant neighbourhood just a stone's throw away from major train connections to the rest of Tokyo. Machiya is quiet but not sleepy and is the perfect place to retreat to after a whole day of braving urban Tokyo's bustling crowds. Three lines (train, subway and tram - the only one left in Tokyo) converge in the town centre which just two minutes away from the house giving you many options for reaching most Tokyo destinations. A host of gamily-friendly restaurants and other conveniences (supermarket, drug store, bakery, etc) that open till late ensure you will never run out of anything. It's great for picking up last-minute necessities before the short walk home or heading out for a day trip. The house is very close to the tracks of the Keisei line but this should not be a problem for most city dwellers and it was a bonus for us because we have a couple of densha otaku (train nuts) in our family. The street where the house is on is quiet, especially at night, yet perfectly safe. For traveller's with (chatty, energetic) young children, there is a lovely park nearby where the kids can go run and make some noise. The interior of the house is cosy. The ground floor is spacious (compared to most Tokyo hotels) providing a great place to just relax or sort out the daily loot from a shopping trip. The spacious sleeping area on the second floor come with divinely comfortable futons. Sinking into bed (futon) at the end of the long day was absolutely heavenly. Yes, you can hear trains rushing by but not for long. Our sleep was always deep and sweet. Our hosts were fantastic! They came to pick us from the station. They didn't have to since the walk was really short but it was drizzling when we arrived so that was a very kind gesture. They were ready to point out places of interest and vital neighbourhood conveniences to us before leaving us to pretty much discover Tokyo on our own. If you want a taste of what it's like to live in a heartland neighbourhood in Tokyo and blend in with the locals, this house is certainly worth a look. The hosts will certainly point you in the right direction if you need anything too!

We are a family from Australia and Japan, and live in the traditional 'downtown' area of Tokyo, with our three kids. Its like a village where people know their neighbors, yet it is in the city! Soccer, music and sports are all important parts of our family life. We love meeti…
