We had a great stay in this nicely decorated apartment. Although it’s located in the basement, it was quiet and you don’t feel as being in the basement. The beds were very comfortable and the apartment well equipped (even a laptop with internet access) and we had much more space than in a hotel-room. Shin-Okachimachi station is just around the corner and JR Okachimachi station in walking distance to discover Tokyo. Or you just start your sightseeing tour right from the apartment by foot. Asakusa and Ueno are not too far away. Shops, convenient stores and small restaurants are in walking distance as well. We will definitely recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay in Tokyo and hope to return as well.
Thank you for the warm welcome!
Very well located apartment, clean, spacious and makes us feels like at home.
Photos are 100% accurate and Hisae is a very kind and friendly person who always answered our questions during our stay.
We highly recommend this apartment !
Next time we come back to Japan, we will for sure stay at this place !

A beautiful house that made us feel at home. It had all we needed, it was spacious and very well located. With a modern decoration it looks like in the photos. We'd like to thank Hisae for her warm welcome, great hospitality and kindness. Ready to help and give her advice and help before and during our stay. We highly recommend this apartment for an awesome stay in Tokyo.
The apartment is very cosy, atypical, clean and very well located. We met Hisae during our stay and she was very nice (also during the preparation of our trip). The file provided regarding the apartment was well detailed and our stay was very pleasant. We highly recommend this place during your stay at Tokyo.
This was the third time in five years that we had stayed at Ayako's lovely apartment in Ueno/Okachimachi. The first two stays were with our two children. This time we took their grandparents. They really enjoyed a comfortable home to return to each day.
The apartment was well-equipped and comfortable for four with features such as a combination washer/dryer, a full body shower and in-room Wi-Fi plus mobile Wi-Fi (which we didn't know Ayako and Hisae would be providing). Plenty of extras are also supplied including umbrellas, new house slippers, ample shampoo, conditioner, body soap, detergents, toilet paper and a basket of complimentary goodies.
The location is fantastic for people with a JR pass, being an easy walk from Okachimachi JR Station and the Ueno Shinkansen (bullet train) station and therefore having easy and fast access to large swathes of Japan.
There is also easy access to the Satake covered shopping street and local supermarkets. Try Pizza Sano (in Satake) and Khanapina for great dining nearby. We also enjoyed exploring more of the lovely Taito district.
This apartment is always clean, cosy and comfortable. Thank you again Ayako and Hisae.
We stayed at Tochirou for 6 nights in September 2015.
We received a very warm welcome in person by Ayako, even though we arrived after 8pm. She was very patient while we asked a lot of questions about the way things worked in the flat, because it was our first night in Japan. It was so kind to gift us a basket with coffee, crackers and other snacks - we really enjoyed these on our first visit.
A few thoughts:
All instructions were in excellent English, even the WC had an instruction!
The beds were very comfortable, soft towels and all essentials well stocked, including washing powder.
Everything else was so thoroughly thought through - hair dryer, iron, coat hangers, even ear buds!
TV/Cable TV and DVD player were available. Most TV channels were Japanese but the remote control did allow for a English translate button for the cable TV which our kids loved. They also loved the computer/internet connection provided - this was an unexpected bonus.
The washing machine is also a dryer which is very handy as there's no outside private space.
The kitchen was very well set up with a rice cooker, a small oven/grill, a microwave and a hot plate. A large fridge meant we could stock up and prepare some delicious meals with fresh vegetables, meat or fish from the local shops (5 minutes walk away).
The bike rental, small park and Shin-Okachimachi metro station also within 5 minute walk so very well located. Exciting Ueno shopping streets and beautiful park only 10 minutes walk.
Very tidy and clean and didn't feel cramped at all - we were there with 4 people (2 adults and 2 kids aged 11 and 14) for 6 nights and we were very sad to leave our home away from home!
Overall, Tochirou is a beautifully designed flat that felt peaceful and quiet and a haven to come home to after a day in bustling Tokyo.
We'd unreservedly recommend Tochirou and would like to thank Ayako and Hisai for all they did to make it happen.
