Rooms and Living Spaces

All the rooms at Yoshida House are Japanese style rooms with tatami mats for flooring. They are all furnished and bedding is included. Two sizes are available, small rooms (4.5 tatami mats) suitable for one person or medium rooms (6 tatami mats) suitable for 1 or 2 people. (For those unaccustomed to Japanese rooms, a tatami mat measures slightly less than 1 meter wide by 2 meters long).

Using a futon is the best way to conserve space but for guests who prefer a bed that's possible also. Each room has an air conditioner and heater along with a television. Wireless internet access is available for free in all the rooms.

The kitchen, dining, shower and laundry facilities are all shared, located in a small building between the two resident buildings. The kitchen is large enough so that several people can cook meals at once. Next to the kitchen in the large communal living area, there's a shared computer with internet access and a television with cable TV. The shower room is in the back, along with a washing machine. Both the showers and the washing machine are coin-operated.

Living environment

Residents at Yoshida House come from all over the world. Most work during the day so it's relatively quiet during the day. At night when more people are around, the living room is a nice place for mingling with others. Since the building is detached, it's always easy to find peace and quiet in one's room.

The small attached garden next to the dining area is what makes Yoshida House different from other guest houses in Tokyo. Both resident buildings are covered in ivy, so sitting in the garden one sees only green surroundings! There's a table and chairs, convenient for reading a book in the afternoon or hanging out with others in the evening.

The neighborhood surrounding the house is a normal Tokyo residential area with a mix of two-story houses and small apartment buildings. Nearby is a large temple which holds a festival every year in the fall. On the walk to the station, one passes a number of temples and a nearby river, and there are lots of possibilities for nice walks and short bike trips nearby.
