About Akiko & Hidemasa Yamamoto
I am a retired professor who took her degree from Columbia university in NYC long time ago.
Akiko & Hidemasa Yamamoto purchased this House in 1950
Why Akiko & Hidemasa Yamamoto chose Sumida
Traditional outlook and modern equipments. Convenient to get to Akihabara, Ginza, Asakusa, Shibuya, Shinjuku, or even to Nikko. Bus stop right near the house and get to Asakusa by 10 mins. Less than 10 minutes walk to two major train stations.
What makes this House unique
Though it is located close to Asakusa, the major tourists attraction in Tokyo, Mukojima area is not polluted with commercial tourism. There is a famous Japanese style 'tea house restaurant' where you can see and enjoy Geisha performance with reasonable price.

Great place in a great neighborhood
Enjoyed my stay despite the issues with the virus . Small enough neighborhood to keep my social distancing up and most restaurants offer take out. Will come back again soon when things get better.
paul, thank you very much for your staying at our place in this difficult situation of the virus issue. We are so glad to know that you enjoyed your time in Mukojima and mentioned to come back in some future. Hope we will overcome this difficulty to be back to what we should and would be. Akiko and Hi-de Yamamoto
Wonderful stay in Tokyo!
This property is a real find - a unique place to stay. It is on one of the many back streets of Sumida, very close to the Hikifune station, Family Mart, and many shops and restaurants. The house is small, but perfect for our family of 3 - comfortable beds, nice bathroom, and kitchen. There is traffic noise at night, but it didn't bother us at all. I highly recommend Sumire house and would stay here again!
Dear Kevin san, domo arigato for your nice review. Glad to know that you would come back someday. Hi-de Yamamoto
I really enjoy the experience of a home in a neighbourhood where people are living their lives...the traditional shops, grocery stores, restaurants and parks are easy and convenient for you too! There are two metro stops within easy walking distance...the big one at Tokyo SkyTree and a smaller neighbourhood station. The bus stops just around the corner and we used it for short rides. The convenience of The Family Mart just around the corner can not be underestimated. Communication with the owner is always punctual, informative and personal. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this trip to Tokyo. Staying at traditional Sumire House made it special.
Dear Wendy M,
Thank you very much for your nice review which introduces good spots in our area to explore. People enjoy Family Mart for coffee and meals. Our convenience stores in Japan have great reputations for their sellings. Glad you mention that so that our future guests won't miss it. Hope you will come back to enjoy our place again. Thank you again. Hi-de Yamamoto
We stayed for a week in January. Great base to explore Tokyo. Easy 10 minute walk from station (Oshiage station next to Tokyo Skytree tower) and there is a train that runs direct to Narita airport. It’s a lovely walk through Sumida and across the river to Asakusa or you can catch a bus on the nearby road. I slept fine but there is some road noise especially in the morning but earplugs were supplied! A great supermarket is located 5 minutes away as well as a variety of local restaurants. A family mart is also located 30 seconds from the front door. If you want to stay in a residential area of Tokyo a bit away from the noise and crowds Sumire is the perfect place to stay. And the small shrine beside the house is a beautiful bonus.
Dear Joanne W., thank you very much for your good rating and introduction about the area. Seems like you checked around Mukojima quite a bit. Thank you again for you're staying. Hi-de Yamamoto
Loved the feeling of history with modern convience
It was easyI to get to the house from airport. We loved the neighborhood and easily accessible train stations. Felt safe and comfortable. And the next door shrine is amazing!
Dear Mary B, it is great to know that you stayed in our place comfortably. Hope your sons and nephew also enjoyed this different culture we offer. Thank you very much and come back again. Hi-de Yamamoto
How about having a day trip to Nikko, where one of the most famous shinto shrines in Japan is located? That was built for a tomb for Yeyasu Tokugawa, who started Tokugawa shogunate in 1603. From Sumire House, it is very easy to get to Nikko.
Kyoto enjoyed culture of court nobles with showy buildings and gorgeous eating/clothing habit while Nikko, the place where the top samurai is laid, has different taste.
