BAD POINTS-

We'd like to honestly list here any negative points that we can think of, to help you decide.

** This IS an old Tokyo house. If you are wanting Luxury accommodation, this is probably not the place for you. However, it is very clean, popular and comfortable for families or groups. And we keep the price LOW!

** There is no Bathroom Sink (Vanity).

But there are-

1 x Shower and 1 x small bathtub,

2 x Toilets, (upstairs and downstairs.)

Kitchen sink.

** MACHIYA is in the centre of Tokyo's traditional area, so you won't see as many tourists. If you are looking for a more "Americanized Tokyo" experience in the more crowded areas of Tokyo, this 'traditional' area may not suit you.

(However, this is the exact reason we love living here!)

MACHIYA is a vibrant hub station with lots of shops, supermarkets, and excellent restaurants. It is a local favorite area for socializing and is famous for its food.

** You may hear kids voices from the park and distant train sounds.

If you are a light sleeper, let us know and we can provide earplugs.

Actually, many people have said this is a GOOD THING as it "saves them worrying about trying to keep quiet all the time"....."more relaxing than some city apartments...".

That's it....have we lost you yet? Hope not...

MORE INFO ON THE AREA, FROM THE WEB-

If you are looking for a place that is in Tokyo city, but is just off the tourist track, then MACHIYA train station, may be for you.

This is the old central historical part of Tokyo city, which includes- Machiya, Ueno, Asakusa, Nezu and Yanaka (Nippori).

Times eventually changed after the war, and other city hubs became popular for tourists.

Now 'Shitamachi' (Downtown) remains the locals' favourite area for eating, drinking, festivals, and temples.

It has a village feel, yet it is 2 mins from the JR Tokyo central loop line, and only a few minutes by train from Tokyo Station, Ginza, Ueno, Asakusa, Harajuku, etc.

And just jump on a train (30 mins) to the 'concrete and crowds' of Shinjuku and Shibuya. Worth a look, too.

Machiya, in Arakawa Ward, is a 'family' oriented place, and folks still say Hi to each other here.

It has Tokyo's lowest crime-rate according to Govt research.

People born and raised in this area are known in Tokyo as 'Edo-Ko' which means- ' The Real Tokyo people'.

Where else in Tokyo can families safely and casually stroll around back streets, and find delicious, traditional, 'Mom and Pop' restaurants, serving delicious - Okonomiyaki, Teppanyaki, Tempura, Ramen, Yakitori, Sushi, Blowfish, Ice-cold Beer; and Sake, all at local (non-tourist) prices?

Many of these restaurant/ bars have been in operation for three or more generations.

Obviously, we kinda like this area and choose to live here!!

We find it unbeatable for convenience, safety, food and culture.

And we hope you will too.

-It is on the green subway line, which is one of the most convenient lines, as it runs directly through the middle of Tokyo city; and connects with many other subways and JR lines.

-Bus to Asakusa (20mins) stops in front of McDonalds acrosss the road.

-It is two minutes by train from the JR circle line. Or you can walk there in about 10 minutes.
