Very good place to stay in Tokyo. With the instructions easy to find . Good location and easy accessory the subway. Excellent the owners recommendations for local dining. Try the Ramen recommendation, hard to find a better one in whole Japan. For rental the absolute question : would I come back the next time ??  - so enjoy Japan 

Brad was very kind and helpful in everyway to make our stay a very welcome and excellent learning experience. He helped referring a very good and dedicated team of drivers to help a group of 5 passengers get transferred from airport to home, let us use his mobile wifi to get to know the subway system which made getting around the city of Tokyo easy and managable,, even for first time visitors . His house is clean, tidy and comfortable, even for big group of 5 persons, the location is excellent and closed to train station, market and restaurant. Thank you Brad for your great hospitability

We are a family of 4 from Canada on our first family vacation to Japan. We stayed at Totoro house for 6 days and ventured to most of the popular spots in Tokyo (Shibuya, Shinjuku, Akihabara, and Ueno) including Tokyo Disneyland and Ghibli Museum. Lots of walking, many 20,000 step days.

The host made a good set of 20 navigation pictures to assist getting us from Narita Airport to Totoro house which was very useful as we do not speak or read Japanese and train travel can be very daunting for newcomers. Brad met us at Machiya station (3 minutes away) and introduced us to the neighborhood, he was very friendly and gave suggestions for restaurants and places to buy things we were looking for. We bought Pasmo train passes which was the easiest method for getting around as we learned to understand the insane network of Japanese trains and subways. Machiya Station quickly became our friend, and the 7-11 next to it for quick morning rice-ball breakfasts. We used the mobile wifi included in the rental everywhere we went, mainly to use Google Maps to help us navigate the train system. The 4G was great (although you get no signal when in the underground subway, so we learned to take screen shots of our trip route on our phones when at street level before going in)

This is a 2 story stand alone house, ie. no common walls with neighbors. The neighborhood is sub-urban and quiet, although the house is right beside a train line which is noisy except for Midnight - 5am when the trains do not run. Earplugs provided :) The place is 1000 sq feet, which was a big draw for us, as we know how tiny living spaces can get in Japan.

Everything in the house worked well, was straight forward and clean. The stairs to the second level are steep, but that is common in Japan. The half bathroom upstairs is awesome to use for middle of the night without having to go down the stairs. English labels on everything to figure out how to use the buttons on the toilets, the room heaters, and the tv (one english BBC channel), but the Japanese channels were far more entertaining.

Thank you Brad, this place was a good base for tourists to explore Tokyo and very reasonably priced.

My family of 4 pp stayed at Totoro for 5 cozy, comfy nights from Feb3-8. We deeply appreciated the big help Brad and his middle son had given us on the day we checked in. Before and in the middle of our trip, they also provided many useful info and advices of where to eat and places of interesting to us. My daughter was so glad that they prepared milk in the refrigerator. But was sorry we couldn't finish it, coz there were so many drinks that we have never seen in our country to try out.

Totoro' location is great. Just exactly as described, only 3 min walking from Machiya station. Machiya is away from the major crowded tourist visiting spots, however, it's not far to get to those places. My family all loved the experience of living in Machiya and stayed at Totoro for the 6 days.

Thank you, Brad and your family.

This was an instant booking. The Home Away calendar did not sync properly, and the dates were somehow double-booked. We immediately talked to the guests and found another place for them, three months before their trip.
It was unfortunate, but everyone was happy in the end. (Except we get an automatic 1-star rating...)

Great house in a great area of Tokyo. Very easy for moving around the sights of the city and airport. We had more than enough room to spread out and having 2 bathrooms was a real plus.

The area is the best as you really get the feel of being Tokyo without the crush of tourists.

This was our first time in Japan and we had a great time. We are a family of 6 and the house fit us very well. The location was excellent, easy to get around Tokyo and close to the station. You can hear the trains but it was no problem. Brad and Seiko gave us lots of good information on restaurants and places to go. Not a lot of tourists which we liked. We felt part of the community. We were very happy with our choice. Thank you Brad and Seiko

Our five member family stayed at Brad's totoro house in Machiya. We had such a wonderful experience. The house is clean and provides for all amenities including towels, soap, internet, etc. The theme of the house was a hit for my family. The number of stores and restaurants around this house are amazing. We spent over 3 weeks here. We became quickly tired of the large number of people and all the sounds of the bigger Tokyo areas like Shibuya, Ikebukoro, etc. But Machiya is a smaller town that is easily accessible from the rail system. Great transpiration to and from the airport. No problem. Brad is a wonderful host and always responsive to questions. I will go back here if we ever return to Tokyo!

My husband and I traveled to Tokyo from Hawaii with 4 teens for a quick stay at Totoro. The trip was last minute and I found it very easy to book with the owner who was extremely responsive and friendly. The home is very compact, but has everything you need to be comfortable. It was just a little tricky to find the house once on foot from the train station since the photos did not depict a change in surroundings. It was a very easy to get to everything on foot and by train and there is an ATM at the 7-11 right as you exit the train station (beware you will likely get some hefty usage fees if you are from out of country). We arrived late at night and the owner graciously met us right when we got in to welcome us and give a few tips and instructions on the property and surrounding amenities. We felt very safe and secure during the visit. The kitchen is tiny, but perfect for warming up small items and keeping a few essentials cold in a small fridge. Beware, the house is very near the train tracks and traffic is frequent with the exception of a few late night/early morning hours. The best part of staying here was the friendliness of the owner (she speaks English very well too!), the cleanliness of the unit and the ease of access to essential shopping/restaurants and the train station. Definitely would recommend to others.
