Super apartment in a superb location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our preferred stay when in Tokyo. Convenient to everything - Harajuku Rail Station is a short distance away - and vibrant shopping like you’d never believe. And a wonderful host who will make sure your stay is comfortable. We love this place!

Perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

Biei was a great host. She’s been doing this for a very long time and it shows in how well the apartment was decorated and stocked. The apartment was spacious and well situated on a quite street while still being very central. Check in and check out was smooth. I highly recommend this place and would definitely stay here again!

Great apartment, convenient location and helpful host

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect base to explore Tokyo. We stayed here for 5 days, and really loved it. It is walking distance to Harajuku station on the Yamanote line, which was excellent. There are also really good Ramen places, Teppanyaki and other eating places nearby. Above all, our host was extremely helpful. We had a bit a of bad luck with our luggage (airline messed it up and it arrived few days late), but our host went out of her way to support us, she received the updates from the airlines, and let us know via message. Although we know a little bit of the language, it helped a lot that our host was able to translate the important communication to us in English.

Overall we had a very good experience, the apartment is very comfortable, had everything we could need for our stay and the balcony was a bonus! We surely want to come back, when we can.

Thank you and look forward to seeing you again - Biei San.

Arigatougozaimashita!

A perfect little studio apartment in a great Tokyo location

  • 5 of 5

I am really torn about writing a great review here. On one hand, I REALLY want to keep this as my secret place to stay in Tokyo, but on the other hand, Biei is so lovely and friendly that I feel I owe it to her little business to be forthcoming.

We arranged to check in at 8pm, and Biei was there to welcome us and to explain everything about the apartment. We had no problems during the stay, and check out was simple.

The apartment is quite small. It's a studio with the bedroom, kitchen and living room all in one space. Only the bathroom is separate. There is good home WiFi and there is also a "Pocket WiFi" to use when you're out and about in Tokyo. The TV has the usual international news channels, and lots of Japanese content. The heating worked well during our winter stay. The kitchen is well equipped, and Biei even provided us with a few things for breakfast on our first morning. The bathroom is fully stocked with amenities and cleaning supplies. Plus there is an excellent and quite high-end washlet (Japanese electronic toilet) and also my favourite thing about Japanese homes — a shower and bath wet room. For a small apartment, there is a reasonable amount of storage space too.

We never heard any noise from the neighbours. In fact, we never saw any neighbours. The building has an elevator and the apartment is on the 8th floor. Outside the apartment front door is a nice view of some iconic Shinjuku towers, and on a clear day you can see Mt. Fuji over Yoyogi Park. From the full-wall window inside the apartment you can see the new Olympic stadium.

The neighbourhood is very residential, with a few hipster-y "curated" shops. There is a 7-11 convenience store beside the building with an international ATM, a well known local coffee shop at the bottom of the building, a supermarket about 10 minutes away, and a popular "taco rice" food truck down the street.

The location is ideal. It's 5 minutes to Harajuku, 10 minutes to Omotesando, 20 minutes to Aoyama, 25 minutes to Shibuya or Shinjuku, and there are several subway and train stations nearby.

I mentioned a few times that the apartment is small. It is, but it is nevertheless almost perfect for a city holiday. It has everything you need and is very comfortable. Besides, most Tokyo apartments are quite small, and this one has more space than any Japanese hotel room I've ever stayed in.

I can't wait to stay here again! I just hope it's available when I do return to Tokyo...

Great place in Tokyo!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great for our stay in Tokyo. We were initially looking to stay near Shibuya or Shinjuku but so glad we found this place. The neighborhood is quiet and quaint. The apartment is small but so well organized and decorated. It was so helpful to have to pocket wifi for exploring Tokyo as well. The place is a quick 8 minute walk to the Harajuku Yamanote line. Checking in and out was very painless. Thanks for letting us crash at the place!

Harajuku JR Station
Car: not necessary

The apartment is situated on a leafy street, walking distance from the renowned fashion and culture hotspot of Harajuku/Omotesandō with its huge choice of cafés, bars, restaurants, shopping, plus the additional benefit of being very close to Meiji Shrine, Yoyogi Park and the beautiful Shinjuku Gyoen Park with its magnificent Japanese garden.

Also, the major shopping and dining areas of Shibuya and Shinjuku are one stop away or a pleasant 20 minute walk.

For those thinking of visiting Tokyo for the 2020 Olympics the main Olympic stadium is 12 minute walk away.

There is a choice of stations within walking distance. Harajuku Station on JR Yamanote Line is 6 minutes walk, Kita-sandō Station on Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin Line 5 minutes, Meiji-jingū-Mae Station on Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line 8 minutes.
