My experience with Miho in Koenji was incredible, there aren't enough words that can explain the value of staying at this location. The Apartment - It is a traditional Japanese apartment with a nice sized kitchen (utensils, silverware, and appliances included) a kitchen table with a small desk and mini fridge included, bedroom with enough closet space for two, patio that gets some good light. The apartment is clean, quiet and bigger than the usual Japanese apartment. The apartment is location in Koenji near countless restaurants, grocery stores, convenience stores, and bars. My favorite place to eat was El Pato, an American restaurant with a great menu and prices. There are also several bakeries near to get fresh baked bread and pastries. The Koenji train station is a 5 minute walk from the apartment. If you get homesick theres a McDonald's near that takes pride in their presentation and freshness. There's a plethora of delicious Japanese cuisine options all around. There is a bar called BNA near if you want to mingle around with a few foreigners and English speaking people. Koenji is close to Harajuku and Shinjuku. In the apartment there is not a shower area but there is a Sento right next door which I enjoyed almost everyday. The Sento was really a treat. Taking the extra time to take care of your body, cleanse yourself meticulously and soak in "Milky Water" has been a new way of life that I am thankful to have incorporated into my busy American lifestyle. My skin and body looks amazing. There is wifi at the Sento and wifi at the apartment. The host - Miho was a fantastic host. She has literally been a lifesaver and family while here living in Tokyo. She's helped make the transition from America a breeze. She has shared her friends and family, brought me to the phone company to get service, been a translator, invited me to festivals where I have met new friends and have gotten to experience true Japanese culture. If you want a beautiful experience and you would love to be spoiled my MIho stay here because you won't regret it.

(English is below) 高円寺の北口から徒歩4,5分ほど歩いたところにある「小杉湯」の隣にあるアパートです。室内は和室と洋室に分かれており、それぞれ素敵に彩られています。ベランダには石庭、壁には横尾忠則の絵画など、日本らしさとアーティスティックな部分が融合した素晴らしい部屋でした。 泊まる前はお風呂が部屋についていないのは不便かな?とも思ったのですが、隣にある小杉湯はタオルもシャンプー&ボディソープも無料で利用でき、時間も深夜の1時45分までやっているので滞在中は毎日銭湯につかりながらその日の思い出を振り返るというなんとも贅沢な旅になりました。 また、滞在中は別の部屋に住んでいるホストの友人が飲みに連れて行ってくれたり、近所を案内してくれて、一人で泊まりましたが楽しく過ごせました。また東京に来た際には利用させていただきます。短い滞在でしたがありがとうございました。 The apartment is next to 'Kosugi-yu' which is located about 4 or 5 minutes' walk from the north exit of Koenji. The interior is divided into a Japanese style room and a Western style room, and they are individually coloured. It is a wonderful room in which Japanese styles and artistic parts were fused, such as a rock garden on the veranda and paintings by Tadanori Yokô on the wall Is it inconvenient for you not having a bath in the room, where you will stay? I thought the same! But consider, that you can use the public bath “Kosugi-yu”, which is located next to the apartment for free. Included is also a towel, shampoo & body soap. And you can use it the whole day until 1:45 in the night. I experienced every day a beautiful memory staying in the apartment and using the public bath. Now looking back it was a really a luxurious trip. Also, during my stay, a friend of a host living in a different room took me out for a drink, or showed me the neighbourhood. I travel and stayed alone, but I enjoyed to stay in this apartment. When I come back to Tokyo I will stay again in this great place. Thank you for your hospitality.
