Tall people don't bump your head! : ) It's a really cool old house that has been fixed up nicely. No TV, but that shouldn't matter! Enjoy!

We had a really awesome stay at the Old Folk House! Akanene and Mitsu were really helpful and they even went the extra mile to help us book our tickets for the museum. They always ensured that we were able to get to the places we want to go, by giving really clear instructions on how to get there on the local subway. I'd definitely recommend the Old Folk House to anyone who wants to visit Tokyo! :)

Akane & Mitsu's Old Folks House was as described. A beautiful Japanese traditional house was what we received. We arrived in the evening late and Mitsu still came to say hello and to explain the house to us, which was really appreciated. Both Mitsu and Akane even though we had limited contact were both lovely. Mitsu even gave us a lift to the train station in his car on our last morning as there was a huge down pouring. Was so nice of him and it stopped us from a soaking. The area has lots to offer. The Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo is only a short walk away. Sumiyoshi Station has lots of places to eat and really cute/cool little bars if you fancy a few drinks on your way back after a big day sightseeing in the city. A great supermarket is also close by and countless convenience stores to choose from. There a re also a few coffee shops 15-20 mins walk away if you crave a good coffee. Getting into the city is very strait forward also. We arrived during a really hot spell with high humidity and the 2nd floor tatami room was pretty hot on arrival. Once the air con was on low for a while it was more than enough to sleep comfortably. I loved hanging out downstairs during the early mornings and even did some morning yoga as well. Such a peaceful setting from the general hustle and bustle of Tokyo. We had a great stay and the only thing I can really mention is the lack of a chopping board in the kitchen. The kitchen has all you need to create any meal and we loved drinking from their handmade ceramics. Hopefully I will be back again. Cheers Steve and Luna

If you want the experience of living in traditional authentic Japanese residential architecture, then I highly recommend Old Folk House. This style architecture mastered the art of incorporating efficiency minimalism and practicality in a unique Style that Frank Lloyd Wright used throughout his life. Old Folk House includes these basic stylistic elements such as tatami mat flooring sliding partitions and recessed built in furniture. It also includes everything you would expect in a modern residence. the home includes a second floor bedroom, with separate air conditioning for the first and second floors. It is located in a very quiet residential neighborhood where you are with local folks including parents children grandparents teens children in school uniforms and working adults of all ages. The host provides excellent instructions on how to find the home. In our experience we were able to reach all of the major attractions in the Tokyo area within 20 to 40 minutes. We stayed for 9 days and and had a wonderful time.

Hi there
We renovated our own the old house, to accept a variety of people from abroad.
I love that you can put plastered on the wall, it will continue to play a space over a period of time and effort on their own.
Their works have been decorated many walls of our house like also be drawing or you can make things.
