Great instructions on how to find the place. Very close to a Tokyo Metro station which is very convenient for getting to the major areas. Nice enough apartment with all the amenities you need but can be a little noisy at night with outside traffic. Junko and Morry were very helpful and provided a lot of info if we needed it. Great hosts.

Beautiful, clean, and right next to Shin-Koenji station! A great introduction to Japan, and Junko and Morry were very gracious hosts who were excellent with communicating and helping us with any problems or questions.

The place was very close to the station so travelling was a lot easier. 7 11 and Lawson was very close to buy food and drinks. Junko and Morry was very helpful. The only downside was the bedroom had a distinct smell that would not go away no matter how long we kept the windows and balcony door open.

The apartment is really well located close to a convenience store, restaurants, and easy access to public transport. We were met at the station and accompanied to the flat where all the features were pointed out to us. The space itself feels large and welcoming, and the futons are such a comfortable way to sleep. Junko and Morry are friendly and helpful, and even assisted in finding some vegetarian restaurants for us. A really great place to stay in Tokyo!

Junko and Morry's apartment is a FANTASTIC RETREAT after hectic sightseeing. It's right opposite the Shin-Koenji subway station. The apartment is large, with a very comfortable lounge room and a beautiful tatami room that converts to a bedroom. Everything you can think of can be found in the apartment, they have thought of everything. The balcony is a lovely bonus to enjoy for breakfast. The stairs up are steep, but manageable. The location is tops for little local cafes and restaurants and there's a great street 2 minutes walk from entrance that takes you to Koenji station - 10 min walk with great vintage shops and stores. Very nice to amble along at night. Lots of local fresh takeaways a few doors away. We were so lucky to experience a special night out with Junko and Morry at a very authentic Japanese restaurant and had a fantastic night with them. The whole area and surrounding suburbs like Nagano, Koenji and Asagaya are so interesting with lovely laneways - it is not nearly as commercial as other areas so well worth exploring. We did a bike ride in the area and loved the slower pace and peacefulness We highly recommend the area and absolutely recommend a stay at Junko and Morry's apartment. Viv and Phil

We had a lot of fun staying at Junko and Morry's place! There were a lot of extra amenities and the apartment is very spacious. I particularly love the ambiance in the Japanese tatami room. The shower room is big and very clean. The kitchen has everything you need. It was very convenient to get to the Metro station, literally right outside the door. The neighborhood has lots of shops and food places. All in all, it exceeded our expectations in every way. Junko was very accommodating and was nice enough to meet us at the station and show us the apartment. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. Would definitely recommend it for anyone.
