  • We had a great time! It was a new and comfortable place in a very convenient location. No problems getting there or getting in.

  • Taro was punctual and helpful. The flat was as described: spacious and comfortable with a great view. This was my first Airbnb experience; and i have to say i am not disappointed. There was a little bit dust under the couch but other than that, there were no problems.

  • We had no direct contact with the host but the information given was clear and easy to follow.

  • Great apartment in a top location, only 10-15 walk to shinjuku station and right near the park. Taro was quick to respond to emails and gave detailed directions that were easy to follow. The pocket wi-fi was really helpful with mobile city maps and the apartment was clean and bigger than expected.
    Thanks Taro!

  • The apartment is very spacious and looks better than the pictures and it's very clean. It's in a very good neighborhood next to a McDonald so it's always has people around! I feel very safe since we are three women traveling late at night. The Shinjuku station is 2 stations away and it has a very big supermarkets with lots of high end foods shops and also normal daily Japanese foods that you can buy and sample. Taro is very nice, he answers emails quickly when we have questions. I love the apartment and if I come back to Tokyo, I love to stay here again. Thank you Taro.

  • Taro's place is an amazing place to stay if you are planning to visit Tokyo. The apartment is big, clean, well equipped and well located. The subway is within 2 minutes and you can even walk to Shinjuku/Kabukicho (count 20mins). The pocket wifi is definitely a big help if you are ever lost. To sum up, I strongly recommend staying at Taro's place.

  • I stay in this apartment for 3 nights with my family. Apartment is near to train station, convenient store within walking distance, food is around the corner.

    The room is comfortable, the actual apartment look nicer compare to the picture. The wash-dry washing machine and portable wifi is a added points in taro's apartment.

    Din meet taro in person but he is a friendly person who willing to help out is you have any question. And his response time is thumbs up.
    Will definitely stay here again on my next trip :)

    I can really recommend this place!

  • We had been stayed in Tokyo for two weeks. Taro's apartment (email hidden) to stay. We have two kids (3y/o and 4y/o). The apartment is really big enough for four of us. Washing machine with drying function really help a lot. The kitchen works excellent, since our kids really love the rice ball made by Uncle Taro's rice cooker. They ask Daddy for a rice cooker, the same as Uncle Taro's, as a souvenir of Tokyo trip. The portable wifi with really high speed is also amazing. The location is close to metro station (with elevator), bus station, supermarket (open 24 hours), Familymart (easy to get the goods from amazon ). We had never met Taro. However, he always reply within 4-6 hours. It's really amazing. He is (email hidden)anks for the perfect apartment and all the support from Taro. We will be back, absolutely!!

  • Taro's apartment is a home away from home, with everything you may need when travelling. It was only a few minutes walk from a metro that links you to Shinjuku in 2 stops (which is very handy!). The apartment is smart, spacious and well equipped. There are plenty of shops in the local area. Although we didn't meet Taro he was very friendly, helpful and easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend staying here as a base for exploring Tokyo.

About
Hi, My name is Taro. I lived in California for high school and college (which makes me quite easy-going and friendly ... I think). I’m renting out the apartment as my wife is oversea for school and I’m currently staying at my parent’s home near by. The area is convenient to live or to travel. I'd be happy to answer your questions or give you recommendations!!
