Tomba is certainly a great host! We enjoyed our trip in Tokyo. The house is clean and made it a comfy temporary home during our stay. It is really close to the train station and shops. Thanks again for the warm welcoming and hospitality on arrival. :)

Tomba is a wonderful host, he meets you at the train, shows you around the neighbourhood, answers all enquirers promptly. The apartment was perfect for our needs and we highly recommend it. The neighbourhood is lovely and quiet and quite close to some major attractions in Tokyo.

I love this place! The host is extremely friendly, it's hard not to love him. The place is really lovely with plenty of space. I think it's so much better than a hotel. Will definitely book this place again if I ever come back.

Tomba-san's place was really roomy (compared to the more expensive Tokyo hotels!), clean and comfortable. The beds were also huge and really comfy to sleep in! Tomba-san provided most necessities we would need for a stay, including a hair dryer, detergent for the washing machine, fridge, stove, microwave oven, hangers, iron, etc. he had everything we would possibly need, which made our stay very comfortable! Tomba-san is also extremely helpful, answering all our questions very promptly and trying his best to help us. He came personally to pick us up from the train station, brought us to the apartment, and when we left, he walked us out to the station again. Truly a warm and helpful host! (: Staying at Tomba-san's place is also a really great experience as one gets to live in a local neighbourhood. I personally like to experience the local life of the countries I visit and this gave me a really great opportunity to do so in Tokyo (: There's even a local supermarket right behind the train station to stock up on snacks and groceries which are much cheaper than the convenience stores like FamilyMart or 7-11. Supermarkets are also difficult to come by in Tokyo so having one so close to our home was great!! Going home from the supermarket will require you to cross a train track and that was a really fun experience - waiting for the train to pass and for the barricade to be lifted before crossing. Small things like these aren't what you can get if you stay in the main city areas (: Tomba-san's place is at Tokiwadai station, which is about 6 stops on the Tobu-Toju line from Ikebukkuro (a JR station). It may seem a little less convenient than hotels situated around the main JR stations like Shinjuku, Shibuya, or Tokyo. However the train ride to his place is quite short and not a hassle at all! For it's price and comfort, I highly recommend staying in Tomba-san's place for a comfortable and affordable stay in Tokyo! (:
