  • This apartment is located in a cosy, quiet part of Yoyogi, close to several train stations. It is elegantly furnished and very easy to feel comfy and at home in. The bathroom and kitchen allow for a real feel-at-home experience, with lots of space and appliances, making the whole stay convenient and relaxing. I also really loved the little thai restaurant next door, where I ended up eating no less than three (!) times during my four-night stay. Liang was very helpful with instructions prior to and during my stay. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone who wants a quiet, withdrawn home in Tokyo which is still very close to the vibrant pulse of Shinjuku (only one stop away on the Yamanote line). It is also in walking distance from the Meiji. I'm happy I stayed here and will definitely stay here again next time I travel to Tokyo!

  • Great stay in Tokyo!
    Liang's place is just perfect! Nice and spacious apartment as shown in pictures! It's just as promised! Very nice and cosy, you really feel like home there.
    The area is just perfect in a very nice neighborhood, different transport stations to choose, from a "secondary" line like 2 minutes away, or Yoyogi station for metro and the JR just 9 minutes, or directly to the huge Shinjuku's connection hub a little further... But it's also really nice to walk to many of key spots walking by the fabulous Yoyogi park, from there you can reach Harajuku, Omotesando and Aoyama or further down to Shibuya.
    We just had an issue there with the washing machine, not functioning properly some times, and Liang was nice and reactive trying to sort it out.
    Maybe Liang sets new ones, but the bed sheets we had just covered the top surface of the bed, so we've had some night fights (hahaha)

  • Just wonderful! one of the best apartments i ever saw in Tokyo! the location was perfect, shinjuku at few steps, and the yamanote line in Yoyogi station. the price is very convenient for a place like this! Liang was just awesome! I recomend this place to everyone! I'll hope to come back soon to Tokyo and i absolutely will try to take this apartment again! Thanks for all Liang!

  • 5-star experience!!!
    Amazing host!
    Considerate and generous with help. Thank you, Liang.
    Exceptional apartment!
    Cool, neat and tidy with sophisticated amenities.
    Situated in a sweet location for the absolute "Tokyo-local" feel.
    Walking distance to Shinjuku, one-way; Harajuku (and Omo-Hills) the other way, and right on the edge of the Meiji Jingu shrine park. No early jogging on the gravel paths!!!

    I would stay here again without hesitation.

  • We had a great visit in Tokyo at L's apartment. It is in a very convenient neighborhood with easy train access to most of the popular sight-seeing places. It is a quiet neighborhood, yet you can walk to Shinjuku, Shibuya, or Harajuku/Omotesando. There are a number of really great coffee shops nearby as well (Fuglen!!!). His place is very tidy and modern. The bed is a little smaller than most Americans are used to for two people, but it was pretty comfortable. There is also a comfortable futon/couch that can be used if the bed is too tight for you. The kitchen was well-stocked with cookware. The bathroom is amazing. Overall, we loved this apartment and would definitely stay here again.

  • Very nice and spacious apartment. Excellent location, very clean and convenient. Very easy handling. The next time I'm in Tokyo I'll definitely try to (email hidden) again. Thank you very much, Liangh, we really enjoyed our stay!

  • The apartment was great. Walking distance to Shinjuku and Yoyogi. Lots of space, pocket WiFi, nice kitchen area all the things you need for a great stay in Tokyo. Liang was unable to meet us but was constantly in contact with us giving instructions on everything we needed to know.

  • Had a fantastic stay at Liangs apartment. He was a very responsive and helpful host with his emails, and made the stay as pleasant as possible. By Japans standards the apartment is very spacious, very modern and has so many great facilities. We also got supplied a pocket wifi which was EXTREMELY useful. I just want to thank Liang again for his apartment and the amazing time we had in Japan.
