Nice place to stay for Tokyo Visit

We found Richard's place on the internet. Convenient - just a few minutes from Nishi-Nippori train station (Yamanote Line) Atmosphere - stay around Japanese residence. Interesting - Yanaka Ginza shopping street nearby. Excellent. We would certainly stay here again for our next visit to Tokyo.

Not just a house

Richard didn't just rent us a fully equipped, newly-furnished, cozy apartment in a SUPERB location, but he also made sure that we'd have everything we need to enjoy our stay. On top of that he enriched our visit to Tokyo in many ways, like providing a tour around the neighborhood to point out the shops and places with best prices and helping with arrangements of a wonderful dinner in our kitchen with home-made Japanese food by very sympathetic cooks :^) I would definitely recommend Tokhouse to anyone visiting Tokyo!

Just Amazing

I rented the Tokhouse for my family who were coming to Tokyo so they can see their new grandson. I was totally amazed when I saw the property and the location. I have lived in Japan for about 5 years and never came across something so spectacular. The host Richard was wonderful. He treated my family like royalty. And the newly remodeled home was perfectly fit to suit their needs. The location was great too. I will definatly recommend the tokyo vacation house to my friends and family who plan to visit Tokyo

Comfortable, Convenient and Affordable

I was the first person to stay at Tokhouse after Richard opened and it was a godsend. I've been going to Tokyo off and on for more than three years and finding a place to stay is always a daunting task there. Generally you either pay an extremely high price for what you are getting or end up in a place that is very old. Tokhouse is neither. Tokhouse is newly renovated and the price is more than fair. As a bonus it is tucked away in a quite Japanese neighborhood and really gives you the experience of what it would be like if you were Japanese and lived there. With its mixture of a quite setting and proximity to the Yamanote train station (only about 5 min walk) which is one of the most popular lines in Tokyo getting you to any of the major areas within 20min you really can't beat it. I stayed there for three months and really got to know Richard and he was invaluable in showing me around and even took me on one of the best bike rides I've ever been on all throughout Eastern Tokyo showing me a view of the city I would never have experienced on my own. If you are thinking to go to Tokyo, check out Tokhouse and I guarantee Richard will take care of you.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Guestbook

Louise and Erik and family from Denmark
We really appreciated our stay in the house. It was spacious (We were two adults and two kids (5 and 7 yrs), clean and cosy. It was very conveniently located close to a station on the Yamanote-line. The neighborhood was quiet and nice with supermarkets/convenience stores near by. Compared to other parts of Tokyo it was fairly cheap to eat out and there were many small restaurants in the neighborhood. Richard was very helpful and flexible and contributed to making our stay a very pleasant experience. We would definitely recommend this house to everybody that needs a place to stay in Tokyo.

Max and Sophie from The UK
We rented the smaller unit 102 for 9 days of our honeymoon and were very happy there. It's well equipped, in a great location, clean and Richard, the owner was very welcoming. Situated about 10 mins walk from Nishi Nippori station which is on the useful Yamanote JR line, Tokhouse is surrounded by supermarkets, convenience stores, restaurants and is five minutes from Yanaka - a great traditional Tokyo market street. The owner took the time to pick us up from the station when we arrived and provided some useful maps and information for the local area. Great house, great location, brilliant service.

Hu and Peter from the UK
The accommodation was fantastic, the apartment was very spacious and was kitted out to a very high standard (with all kitchen equipment, washing machine, etc.. etc..). It was in a great area, a very short walk from a main train station and close to great restaurants and shops. Richard was a great host, and showed us the local area and provided us with lots useful information of where to go and other insider knowledge. Great experience!

Lin and family from Malaysia
My family of four stayed at Tokhouse for 7 nights and we had an enjoyable experience.Located at a charming quiet neighborhood, we got a taste of Japanese everyday life by living and buying our groceries amongst the locals. Conveniently located, we were only a short train ride to most of Tokyo's attractions. The house was clean, comfortable and well equipped. As a host, Richard was professional and efficient and was very helpful to ferry our luggages from and to the stations when we arrive and depart. I have to say staying at Tokhouse was one of the highlights of our Tokyo holiday! I will definitely recommend Tokhouse for it's great location, good facilities and excellent host.

Gloria and family from Mexico and Israel
We enjoyed very much the Tokhouse.The house is very nice, Japanese style, very comfortable & has everything you need and is only 5 minutes walk to JR. Richard is a great host. He helps with tips and makes you feel really as if Tokhouse is your home. Thanks Richard ! hope we can come again soon.

Tabea and friends from Germany
My friends and I lived for 4 weeks in this wonderful apartment. Richard is a really friendly guy. He knows much about Tokyo and was very helpful if we had any questions during our stay. Right when we arrived he picked us up from the train station and showed us the hot spots in Nishinippori (For example a traditional old street where you can grab delicious food, and much more). The apartment is close to Nishinippori station, located on the JR Yamanote line. It takes about 10 - 25 minutes to reach all the famous districts in Tokyo. Though Nishi-Nippori is close to the center, you have a small town atmosphere there, to relax from busy Tokyo. During our next stay, we will definitely rent one of Richards apartments again for sure. Thank You!!

Camille and James from America
Richard is fantastic. It was our second overnight visit to Tokyo but this was the visit to define all visits. In one day we toured the neighborhood where the Tokhouse is, enjoyed several street festivals, learned about Richard's life journey and how he ended up in Japan and made new friends. It was a GREAT TIME and we have Richard to thank for his organization, kindness, superior hosting skills and fantastic location. The Tokhouse is beautiful and well-appointed with everything a traveler needs to feel at home immediately. We plan to rent with him every time we visit Tokyo.

Naomi and family from Australia
This accommodation was the highlight of our trip to Japan!
A fabulous home for a family. Location, location, location!!! Easy travel around Tokyo on the main Yamanote loop line. Quaint traditional house and neighbourhood - a real experience of Japan! Far better than any hotel could offer! And a wonderful host!

Louise and family from Australia
Myself, husband and adult daughter stayed a week in the Tokhouse during January, 2012. The Tokhouse during winter was very cosy with heating in every room including the shower/bathroom. In addition floor heating in the kitchen/dining was fabulous. We wanted a functioning kitchen, and found the Tokhouse provided a gas cooktop, griller, rice cooker and toaster/griller plus microwave. The supermarket is a two minute walk. Having a table and chairs was great after hotel accommodation. On the second floor my husband and I slept futon style and there was plenty of extra bedding. My daughter slept in the loft and had her own heater, bed-lamp etc. When I looked on the internet for accommodation in Tokyo location was very important because we had JR passes. Tokhouse is 5 minutes walk from Nishi-Nippori station which is on the Yamanote JR line. This loop line will get you to all the main stations in Tokyo. We also liked the neighborhood, live in amongst the locals and its quiet. No street noise or cars passing. Very pedestrian around the Tokhouse. Richard and Ai are welcoming hosts who provided heaps of information about the local and Tokyo area. Well equipped and spotless. Highly recommended. Louise, Mark and Erin

Ben and family from Singapore
Nice house, everything works well, and Richard was very generous and knowledgable with this time and experience in helping us find cool stuff to do and places to eat. I would recommend this place to my friends, and wouldn't hesitate staying here again.

Isabelle and family from France
Voyage à cinq, avec trois enfants. Accueil de grande qualité, maison très propre et très fonctionnelle. Situation parfaite pour se balader dans Tokyo. Excellent rapport qualité prix. Pas d'hésitation.
Traveled with family of five, with three children. Home of high quality, very clean and functional. Perfect location for getting around Tokyo. Excellent value for money. Would not hesitate to stay again.

Carla and friends from Spain
Tokhouse has been the perfect door we needed to have to meet in Tokyo.As our first time in Japan, it was the perfect place to start our journey and with everything we could need to do it. Very comfortable and well equipped, I spent some of the best days of my life there. Richard is an awesome host and person too, he's one of the most memorable things I'm going to keep from Tokyo. I know I'm coming back to Japan, and I know it's gonna be to Tokhouse again.

Polly and family from The UK
"All you need in a great location."We have just returned from our first 5 days in Tokyo, staying at Tokhouse. As a family of 5 with young kids arriving bleary-eyed early one morning, it was great to be met by Richard at the station and taken to the house. He pointed out some really useful things on the way to the house including one of the best bakeries I have ever been to outside of France! The house was ideal - in a quiet spot, with enough room for us all to spread out, and with all the things we needed. Richard's advice was really excellent and it was great to have access to someone with a lot of experience and who knew his way around. we definitely got a lot more out of our trip than we would have done if we had stayed in a hotel, and this is partly due to Richard and partly due to the fact that the house is in a residential area and so we felt like we got a feel for real Tokyo rather than tourist Tokyo - the contrast between the area we were in, and Asakusa where we had considered staying in a Ryokan was stark. We are so glad we opted for Tokhouse, and when we've saved up enough pennies, we will be back.

Alcides & Veronica from Switzerland
We enjoyed very much our stay at Richard's Tokhouse. The accommodations are very well equipped (kitchen utensils, iron and board, hairdryer, etc.). It is very convenient located at Nishi-Nippori Station on the Yamanote line, which takes you almost everywhere ... Thank you Richard, for your kind and helpful assistance! Hope to see you again. Kind regards Alcides & Veronica.

Engilbert and family from Iceland
Excellent location and a very professional English speaking owner. We stayed at Tokhouse for 4 nights - a family of 5, parents and children aged 17-23. It is very easy to get to the house by rail with the Keisei Skyliner from Narita to Nippori station. The Skyliner takes only 36 minutes. Then you take the central Yamanote train from Nippori to the next stop (3 minutes), the Nishi-Nippori station, where Richard met us. We got tickets for both legs at the Keisei Skyliner counter at Narita. Only 5 minutes from there by foot to the house which is located in a very quiet "typical Japanese neighborhood". Supermarkets, restaurants, ATMs, good bakery all around the corner. Wonderful walk to the nearby neighborhood Ueno through many small streets and gardens - many culinary temptations and "authentic experience" of a real residential neighborhood in Tokyo on the way.

Kelly and friends from Malaysia
This is the 1st time we travel to Japan. Richard the owner was a big help. Before we start making our bookings, he had provided us with so much information in order to plan our journey ahead. With his tips sharing we had save some cost. Instead of engaging local tour, we decided to go free & easy since transportation was very convenient (as advised by Richard) The moment we arrived at Nishi Nippori around midnight, Richard greeted us & showed us our accommodation and explained in details all the route & places of interest in Tokyo. The 5 nights stayed at Tokhouse was very cosy and it felt like home. All the amenities is available and easy to use. The location is fantastic as NishiNippori falls under the JR Yamamote line which cover all the main stations/places in Tokyo city. Moreover, it is just a few minutes walk to convenience store & the best bakery in town. Definitely recommend Tokhouse to all.

Jan and Family from New Zealand
Our family of four (parents and children aged 11 and 14) recently stayed at Tok House. It was ideal for us, with everything we needed at an affordable price.The neighbourhood was great, all the amenities we required- particularly enjoyed the little craft beer bar nearby. Close to a Yamanote line station - perfect for easy travel around Tokyo - and it was surprisingly easy to walk to a variety of tourist attractions, including Ueno park and the Tokyo National museum. Richard was very helpful, the maps and local information he provided were invaluable. The house is small (typically for Japan) but has everything you need. It is less suitable to the very young and very old due to the steep stairs and ladder access to sleeping loft, but was just fine for us.

Giuseppe and family from Italy
I want to express out complete satisfaction for our staying in Tokhouse Vacation House, starting from the location, ideal to appreciate such wonderful surroundings of Ueno borough and all the fantastic areas nearby, but also ideal as base camp for visiting the whole Tokyo, thanks to Yamanote and other connections close to Tokhouse; the house itself, comfortable and equipped with all what is needed and more that that, perfectly efficient in every respect, with many shops and markets around to satisfy each and every need (including very good draft beer); and to finish with your reception, clear and accurate with respect to all the precious hints you gave to plan our staying in Tokyo. It has been a wonderful experience staying in Tokhouse, we will certainly recommend it to our friends. Be sure we will be again knocking on Tokhouse's door for our next trip in Tokyo. Take care. Giuseppe

Barry from America
Tokhouse is a great base and a good value for a Tokyo visit. There are a lot of sights and experiences accessible in the surrounding area and host, Richard, was very generous with his time and experience in showing me what there is to do. I spent 2 days at Tokhouse 102 as part of a Japan vacation and really enjoyed exploring the nearby residential neighborhoods, as well as the museums and other culturally and historically significant sights that are in the Ueno vicinity Richard is a great host and provides a place you can really live in like a home while traveling. He gave me the train info I needed to get to his property and met me at the station (way earlier than a normal Japan check-in time). I fixed some meals in the kitchen with food from the nearby supermarket and enjoyed eating and drinking in neighborhood establishments as well. When I get back to Japan I will try to stay at Tokhouse again

Nina and friends from Sweden
We stayed here for a couple of days in June and it was great! The place is very nice, clean and spacious (for Japanese standards!), you´ll have everything you need. Richard was a great help to get us started in Tokyo, with maps and loads of good tips - and he knows the best bakeries and restaurants in town! The area s very nice and calm, I was surprised to find coziness in such a gigantic city! It´s easy to get to other parts of the city, the public transport connections are very good and you can even walk directly from there and see a lot! I would totally recommend this accommodation to everyone going to Tokyo!

Menel and family from Lausanne, Switzerland
Best way to begin our stay. The house is very very nicely situated in charming and modern Japanese neighborhood. The owner personally came to the closest station to welcome us as well as lead us to our house. He then went through a very detailed and personalized proposition of places to visit providing even maps and subway plans. The house was very clean and very comfortable to live in. Even if we didn't use the household items, there's everything you could need. Really a delightful stay!

Mark and family from the UK
Great location, great house.We stayed here for a week. The location is fantastic- only 5 minutes walk from the Yamanote line that got us everywhere that we wanted to go quickly and cheaply. Richard (the owner) was very helpful and friendly - lots of great tips on where to eat etc. The house is incredibly well equipped, to the extent that even the toilet was streets ahead of anything that I've ever used! Will recommend highly to my friends.

Boosba V. and family from Bangkok,Thailand
Comfort ,cozy and most traffic convenient apartment for the family stay.We are the family of 5 adults have had the most convenient stay in your cozy Tokhouse in Tokyo. The location is very quiet with high class neighborhood and we can easily approach all attracting areas in Tokyo with JR train. We are impressed with the warm hospitality and dedicated advice to our plan . I surely recommend my friends to stay at the Tokhouse and surely we will return for the next trip

Federica and friends from Turin, Italy
Ottima! Siamo stati ospiti in sette, per nove notti, affittando due unità (piano inferiore e superiore). Fornita di tutto e perfetta come punto d'appoggio per esplorare Tokyo, a cinque minuti a piedi dalla stazione da cui è possibile raggiungere i quartieri principali con la Yamanote. Il quartiere è interno rispetto alla strada principale e quindi tranquillo di sera. Il proprietario è stato gentilissimo e ci ha dato molti consigli sui luoghi da visitare, come spedire le valigie in aereoporto, sui mezzi ecc. Essendo in sette, poi, il rapporto qualità-prezzo è eccellente, considerata posizione, servizi forniti e tutto il resto. Consigliatissima :)
Excellent! We were guests in seven to nine nights, renting two units (lower and upper). Equipped with everything and perfect as a base for exploring Tokyo, a five-minute walk from the station from which you can reach the main districts with the Yamanote. The neighborhood is inboard of the main road so quiet in the evening. The owner was very kind and gave us great advice about places to visit, how to send the suitcases in the airport, media etc.. Being seven, then the value for money is excellent, considering location, services provided and all the rest. Highly recommended :)

Manolo from Manila, Philippines
Homestyle Tokyo Feel. Tokyo Vacation Houses are located in one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. It has a quiet residential feel. But a short train ride away, the Yamanote line and Chiyoda line are just a few minutes' walk, can whisk you right into the hustle and bustle of this fascinating megalopolis. Tokhouse 101 where we stayed has complete amenities and is home away from home and Richard, the landlord is the best. He makes sure you get your bearings and shows you the secrets of the neighborhoods of Yanaka and Sendagi. The best yakitori, the best curry, the best beer...yeah Richard! Just ask!

Florian and friends from Frankfurt, Germany
Feels like home. I couldn't have made a better choice than staying at Richard's vacation house during my six-day stay in Tokyo. The house is fully equipped, welcoming and super clean. The nice furnished home is on a relaxing back alley and evokes cozy feeling of coming home, the walkable neighborhood and good food options made it easy to do errands and shopping. I especially appreciated the extra care Richard made about my stay by helping with maps and helpful advices. Definitely I will always return.

Myra from and family from the USA
First Time Visitor. The accommodations were excellent. Kitchen, laundry and stores nearby helped cut down on the expensiveness of eating out each meal. Everything was within walking distance: restaurants, shopping, bank, fast food, train station and food markets. Richard Ashley was a great host by meeting us at the train station, and reviewing nearby sites upon our arrival. He very expeditiously replied to all questions via email and offered helpful tips.

Laura and friends from Hamburg, Germany
A nice and comfortable stay.We stayed in the Tokhouse Vacation House 102, this is the downstairs apartment. We were really surprised how big the place is, for we heard of the small spaces in tokyo. Richard showed us the rooms, all the functions of the kitchen, bath etc., talked to us about tokyo and sights and was so nice to print out several maps for us. We were two people in the downstairs apartment and had two keys, this was perfect. 3 friends of us took 201 the upstairs apartment, it has a separate entrance. It was nice to stay very close, but also separated, for we are two couples and this way had some private time for ourselves. Everything in the apartment was in good condition and clean, it was easy to heat the room to a comfortable temperature (we visited tokyo in november). The shower is a western style one, which I was thankful for. The house is located near a station of the Yamanote line (Nishinippori), which is perfect to get around in tokyo. On the way from the house to the station are several drug stores, shops and restaurants (ramen!). The apartment is in a quiet street inside a block of houses, not on one of the big streets. Last but not least, the prices for a stay are very reasonable, and the apartments are worth every Yen of it.

Lucien and friends from Taiwan
Wonderful location and kind people you can't find another in Tokyo downtown Tokyo Vacation Houses owned by Mr. Richard Ashley are wonderful renting houses for travelers all over the world to have an extraordinary staying experience in Tokyo downtown. The location here is great, near the local and relaxing area called "è°·æ ¹å (Yanesen)" I loved dearly, old buildings, fabulous museums, all kinds of vendor shops, kindly and warm people all around this place. Beyond that, just five-minute walking you can get yourself to the Nishi-Nippori Station, then take either the railroad or the metro at your option to other places in Tokyo. That is, you can easily have a business meeting in é座(Ginza), a local temple sightseeing tour in æ·ºè(Asakusa), or an electric appliance shopping schedule in ç§èå(Akihabara) in daytime, then back to Tokyo Vacation House area for beverages and delicacies, or even a local Japanese bathhouse shower at night! Moreover, Richard is very well-knowledged about everything of "è°·æ ¹å (Yanesen)" area and other great places around Tokyo, and he is very responsive in providing all the necessary information you might want to know.

Overall great experience! Great house, great and honest host. Helpful and kind. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend! Thank you Richard!

Merlin from England
Richard found me on LinkedIn after I asked for information regarding traveling in Japan through the Japan Group; am I glad he did. Richard and I agreed dates and prices for rental of one of his apartments which was clean, comfortable and fanatically accessible to the rest of Tokyo and Japan.
I gathered enough specialist traveling information to make my stay not only far easier but incredibly cheaper. I loved my stay in Tokyo. I have to say that Richard made my stay so much more enjoyable and I cannot recommend staying at Tokhouse more. Richard will always give you solid information and his knowledge of living in Japan is invaluable whether you are staying for two weeks or two years. Thank you Richard and see you again soon.

Boon Tiah Ng and family from Malaysia
Richard was very helpful and he showed us around the neighborhood after we checked into the apartment. The place was very convenient and we can find anything we want in the neighborhood and everything is so much cheaper here. There's a wholesale supermarket nearby where we can find anything to bring back home and its so cheap compare to the other supermarket or shops. Richard was very kind to help us bring all our luggages to the train station on our last day in his place and we were very happy with his help. We will definitely go back there again if we want to stay in Tokyo the next time.

Naomi and family from America
Richard was a very considerate, helpful, and knowledgeable host. His house is well-appointed, and would sleep 6 in the combined space of the loft and 2nd floor. He provided us with a great map, hints about the local neighborhood, and the place is easily accessible from the Yamanote JR Line, between Nippori and Nishi-Nippori stations. He has a laundry washing machine, which we found lifesaving! From Narita, there is an express train which would put you at the station in about 35 min. but we had JR Passes, so used the JR lines, which took a bit over an hour. Would definitely recommend his place!!

Shelly and friends from America
We (group of 6) stayed at Tokhouse at the end of December. Great location in a charming area of Tokyo, conveniently located close to the JR Yamanote line. House was beautiful, heated floors, heated toilet seat, what else could you ask for? All the amenities of a hotel, but with much more character. Richard was very welcoming and accommodating, gave us a tour of the neighborhood & recommendations, and was always available for questions. Thank you so much Richard!

Georgia and family  from Australia
Absolutely Fantastic and Value for money for overseas visitors.
We stayed 8 days at Tokhouse and have paid three time less money than a hotel. The house is new and clean, the location is great, very short walking distance to train station and shops, friendly and helpful landlord, we had wonderful time, I will recommend to all my friends. Thank you Richard, you will see us visit again.

Tung and friends from America
Great quite location. Well worth the price. Close to transport and great food.

Azusa and friends from Japan
We had a very good time at Tokhouse and Richard showed us a great hospitality. We rent Tokhouse for our private party and it's very comfortable for. Located near the main station and supermarket. We could use a great kitchen and stay over night after the party! Thanks,Richard!

Cikie from Hong Kong
Thanks Richard, you gave us a retreat opportunity in Japan! We will recommend Tokhouse to our friends!
