Everything was easy, from the booking process to the wonderful greeting we had when we arrived. The house is extremely functional and well equipped and in a wonderful neighbourhood with lots of restaurants and a great supermarket with lots of food options for take out. The metro is 100 m away and the Ueno JR station about 15-20 minutes walk through the lovely Ueno park.

Despite arriving 1.5 hours late for our scheduled meet up time, we found our host, Hisae, waiting for us with an open smile and willingness to help answer all our questions and get us settled in, thank you Hisae! Yanaka is nestled in a comfortable part of Ueno, with easy access to bakeries, restaurants and markets, all just around the corner, with everything you will need to experience Tokyo as a local. We made daily use of the VRBO kitchen - not only to save money, but to sample local delicacies, and prepare food for our 3 year old, whose diet is less adventuresome. In order to lessen the weight in our luggage we carried fewer clothes and used the onsite washer/dryer. Like all the other VRBO accommodations, we found it to be clean, well-maintained, and easy to understand with operating instructions in Yanaka's handbook. Among neighborhood highlights were the walks along Shinobazu Dori on our way to Ueno park's zoo and museums and strolls thru Rinkoji shops experiencing the welcoming warm spirit of the Japanese people. Thanks so much for providing us with a place to not only vacation, but live as a resident. We highly recommend this VRBO to any travelers!

Metro lines were easy to walk to but the 63 bus line was also right there to take us to Metro stations, shopping and tourist sites, and more. The nearby shops and restaurants were diverse and made the home away from home experience perfect. Having portable wifi was a plus as we used is constantly while exploring Tokyo. Hisae, you are a gracious host and thanks for allowing us to drop our bags off a few hours early and letting us stay two hours beyond checkout. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
