Haruko san is a warm and friendly host. This place is best suited for being out all day, returning at night, as space to relax is limited.

I cannot say enough good things about my stay with Haruko! It started with her meeting me at the train station and walking the 10 minutes under the beautiful cherry blossoms to her home. Jiyugoako is an amazing area, definitely spend some times checking out the shops. I loved Today's Special. Haruko's home is so welcoming. I felt very comfortable sleeping on the mat and I especially liked her bathroom. She left me simple surprises (my favorite was the heating pad in the bed) and I could always expect warm welcomes when I would awake or come home. I wish I could have communicated with Haruko more. She speaks little English although she wants to learn. It was a barrier in that I couldn't get to know her deeply but it did not affect my stay. Her cohost was helpful with communication. On my last day she cooked me a wonderful breakfast. It was one of my favorite meals in Tokyo. In the crazy world we live in, Haruko provides peace and love. Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay!

Mrs. Miki is kind and gracious host. My Japanese is incredibly limited and she finds her way to communicate with me, she even took me to traditional Japanese public bath (Onsen style) one night! Her apartment is just as pictured and very clean. I will come back to see you Haruko San! Rose

SIMPLY AMAZING. Haruko-san made Jiyuugaoka feel like home. The neighborhood is gorgeous and the house is very cozy. The tatami is extremely comfortable. My daughter and I were on a very busy travel schedule and often got home kinda late, but things were pretty convenient because there is a door separating our space and the living room, so we wouldn't disturb anyone. The breakfast Haruko-san makes is delicious and definitely enough to fill your hungry stomach. It is also quite easy to get to the Jiyuugaoka station from the house, and from there you can take the subway to pretty much anywhere (yes the commute might be a teeny tiny bit long but it's totally worth it). We LOVED our stay and Haruko-san is one of the most generous and amiable person I've ever met. Thank you so very much, Haruko-san. It was the greatest pleasure meeting you and staying at Jiyuugaoka.
