Margaret was very welcoming, and was helpful explaining Japanese customs.

Staying with margaret was the perfect introduction to Japan: living there for a long time but originally from 'the west' makes it easy to stay with her and get introduced to the Japanese live. She is open to all questions, an experienced host (relaxed and used to have different kind of people around) and very sweet: she made us a goodbye breakfast with selfmade cheese... The room is lovely and conveniënt, with a small balcony looking out on the park close-by. The neighbourhood is not in the centre of Tokyo, which is a pro: you get to experience the relaxed side of the city and fresh air, living with japanese families around you. Nice park across the street and easy accesss by bus around the corner or metro 20 min walk. We warmly recommend this thoughtful and helpful host! And her apartment as well...

Margaret is the best host. She knew the ins and outs of Tokyo and Japanese culture not to mention she fed us quite a bit. I couldnt ask for a better experience. Most of the reviews knock down on how far the room is from the city but its really not that far, a good bus ride away from shibuya and theres a lot of other routes you can take if you want to avoid the busy shibuya station to get to where you need to go. Margaret was willing to help to fix our pocket wifi delivery problem which by the way is a must have when you go to japan. I will most definitely try to book this place again when i come back as it gives the feeling that you are home.

Margaret is very kind and helpful. The big good thing : the appartment is located near a park and many sport places (especially swimmingpool), night is peaceful. The little disadvantage : it is a bit far from central Tokyo (reason why i give 4 points and not 5). But it depends on what you do during your travel. All in all, a very good place.

The host, Margaret, was very relaxed and helpful. She went out of her way to make me feel welcome, and even made some phone calls on my behalf when my show tickets did not come through. The guest room I had at my disposal was spacious, with a very soft bed, and it was overlooking a nice terrace garden. Once again, knowing what to expect is the key to having a good time. You should know that this airbnb home is accessible by bus only (the nearest metro station is 6 stops away), and buses in Tokyo are not as welcoming to foreigners as metro is. You should know that this is a shared house; the host lives there along with another tenant and a cat. So, if you value your privacy above interaction, this may not be the ideal place for you. You should also know that this is a quiet residential neighborhood, away from the touristy areas. That being said, I had a wonderful time because I wanted to experience Tokyo like local people do. Also, Margaret was a cultural guide. She is from New Zealand but has lived in Japan for over 20 years. The insider understanding of Japanese culture that she has was illuminating.

My daughter and I had a very nice stay at Margaret's place. It is a quaint little space that is clean and well kept with comfortable mattresses to sleep on in a room with pleasant water sounds coming from the little water fountain on the balcony. If you come with more than one suitcase each as we did (we packed way too much!) you may find it a bit of a squeeze in the small room but we managed quite well. The place is located right next to a beautiful park which we got to enjoy almost every day as we walked through it to get to the train station. Margaret is quite fluent in Japanese, which proved very helpful and she has many suggestions for tourists on sightseeing and the like. A very lovely host was she and we are so glad to have met her and made a new friend.

Margaret User Profile

I moved back to New Zealand this April 2017
I have been living in Japan since 1991. I initially came here under the working holiday visa system staying in what was then called a ‘Gaijin House’ (Gaijin;- means foreigner) now we refer to them as Guest Houses or Share Houses. I got interested in learning the language and somewhere along the way I realized that this was my home the place where I felt most comfortable in the world.
I started studying Yoga at the International Yoga Centre in Ogikubo in 1996 and in spite of my incredibly stubborn stiffness, persevered and at last became a teacher.
In 2007 I set out on a world trip in search of a place to start a Yoga Studio and Guest House returning to Japan I opened the Yoga Uluka Studio and guest house we had a lot of fun with that and now I have moved to the Setagaya District still teaching Yoga and Tai Chi and have an apartment where I have guests and also a place in Shinjuku.
I have studied up to the 3rd Dan in the Japanese Tai Chi Federation System.
I love/hate to compete in Tai Chi Competition (well actually it is a tool I use to face and challenge my innate nervous disposition. Every time I stand in the arena about to enter the court to compete I ask myself “why do I do this to myself?” But when it is all over I can’t wait for the next time) I teach Tai Chi Class at the Setagaya Ward facilities in Oyamadai and continue to teach Yoga lessons near my house.
