Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan

About our homestay

Thank you for visiting my profile page.

I think the best way to understand different culture is to know ordinary people's way of life. We can show you real Japan while you stay in my house.
We prepare home-made hot dishes to help you understand how Japanese enjoy everyday's meals.
You will be able to know real Japanese cuisine by having same meals together in Japanese home.
Since I was born and raised in Tokyo, I will be able to inform you about the things and sights which is not appeared in internet.

>> Location >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Asakusa is one of the most famous sightseeing place in Japan. The residential area in Asakusa where I live is well known as an typical "shita-machi"area. People are living with helping each other here in shita-machi. And Asakusa is located in central Tokyo so the transportation is very convenient too .
So you can enjoy both old Tokyo and modern Tokyo if you stay in my house.

Please check the testimonials for the early days of our homestaying which is in the last part of this page.

> Meals are also served on holiday and weekend, it's included in the price.

>> For the people who want to know more about Japan >>>>>>>>>>>>>

I have official license to teach social studies but I haven’t worked at school ever before. I stopped to be a teacher as an occupation, and I made my own company instead. So if you have any question, I think I will be able to answer it from the surface and behind of matters.
It will help you to know real Japan further.

>> History of our homestaying >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

2007: I started to run unique program called "A Little Bit of Japan" for helping tourists from abroad, The program shows you Japanese ordinary people's culture by offering unique activities.
e.g. Having meal in Japanese house, Wearing kimono, Bathing in public onsen bath house, Making hanko stamp with your name in kanji, Customize the tour on your demand, and so on...

2008: One of the popular TV program reported my activities on their morning show..
*"A Little Bit of Japan" program is still available for the guests who stay in my house.
*Extra fee is needed. But it's almost real cost.

2011: Home visiting project have been placed as a new activity of "A Little Bit of Japan" program
Then, I have started to offer the upstairs of my house for the home-stayers. There are 1 Japanese traditional room and 1 western styled room.
This was the starting year for our Homestay program.

2013: I added another 2 rooms for the guests. Because our home-staying program was becoming so popular. We already had many repeat customers in that year. Their numbers were much bigger than we had expected.
The new rooms we started to offer are right next to our house. That house is standing at just "4 SECONDS" from the front door of main house.
That house had been offered to Japanese tenants until we had decided to use the rooms for homestay. The case you will book that house, you are going to eat meals in the main house, spend some time with the other stayers in main house, and then back to your room in that house to sleep. You can enjoy both home-stay and apartment-stay style!

2015: We had to raise our homestay fee a bit because rising of consumption tax.
We could keep the price until government raise the tax into 8 % but every commodity's price had became expensive after that. Sorry but we couldn't bear that situation

2016 (the current year): We are offering 4 independent rooms
1) Wide Japanese room for the plural guests.
2) western room for single guest
3) Standard Japanese room for single guest.
4) Standard western room for single guest
