With Great Access to Narita Airport, Stay Near to Asakusa Station in Downtown Tokyo

Find comfort in your Japanese home from home. Are you currently living in Japan, on a short trip, maybe your onward travel plans changed due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19)? Do you feel comfortable in your apartment, your accommodation, your hotel? When looking for places to live or stay, most of us look for apartments or hotels. Maybe you are looking for relaxation and comfort, a unique place to stay, or somewhere with community and coliving. We have two different options to check out if you are looking for somewhere for long or short-term to stay. Both these accommodations are situated in Asakusa, Tokyo’s shitamachi – a quieter, low-rise, historic spot in Tokyo where you can enjoy the old Japan. The vibe here is completely different from other more flashy areas of Tokyo. It’s more slow-paced, relaxed, full of character, budget-friendly, and a hub of Japanese Craftsmanship. Staying or living here can give you a totally new perspective on Japanese life, so let’s get started.

① Matsumura

What are the most important values for you? What are the things non-negotiable for you?
As you come to Japan or are planning to visit Japan, you have an interest in Japanese culture, food, history, and budget. These are all answers for Japan lovers.
Under technological developments, we use the latest devices with the latest technology. Some of us are addicted to SNS, watching funny videos on our phones, but the convenience of smartphones could spoil people. What is the charm of comfort and relaxation?

An accommodation we would like to introduce first is called Matsumura which was built more than 60 years ago close to Sensoji Temple in Asakusa.

This accommodation was restored at the end of last year and the rooms are renovated from an old Japanese house. The rooms are clean and tidy while keeping the “JAPANESE TRADITIONAL STYLE” as it was.
You can enjoy Japanese vegan cuisine in the café. Osteopathy is also facilitated. Staying here could be your chance to know more about Japanese tradition.

Do You Have a Special Diet?

You’ll be fine because they have a vegan café as well!!
Being vegan is extremely hard especially when it comes to Japanese food since most miso soup is made with fish broth. Japanese food cannot be complete without miso soup. All vegans can heartily taste this Japanese cuisine. But it’s not just for vegans, it’s for all people who love to eat great, authentic Japanese food.

What Is Special About This Accommodation?

Because of the decrease in tourists due to coronavirus, this accommodation can be used as a rest space. This space starts from a two-hour rental period at ¥1,500/h for remote work and is recommended to use your half day in this accommodation for people who get exhausted staying at home.
You can get nail and osteopathy treatments too! This place is a great base for staying in Tokyo and offers medium and long term room usage.
The lodging reservation is available through Airbnb only, but inquiries through the HP for special requests and consultations are welcome.
There is currently a tenant renting a room weekly running their osteopathy businesses.

We can’t wait to see you soon (a message from the hotel staff).
