Chikako's place was perfect for 2 people. The place was very clean and minimal. It has everything you need to get by and it's very close to a train station, as well as to a convenient store right around corner which was definitely a plus. We didn't get to talk to her a lot but she was very kind and helpful when we first arrived and also when we were leaving. Overall it was a great stay for us and would definitely recommend this place to others.
