About this listing
One of the largest and roomiest places in Tokyo on Airbnb. Over 120 SQUARE METERS (1200 sq.ft) of space. BIG, SPACIOUS, LOTS OF LIGHT, TOP FLOOR, EXPANSIVE VIEWS from HUGE WINDOWS in every room and multiple balconies. We are a couple and have lived in Tokyo for ten years each. We both speak, read and write Japanese fluently. You may have heard apartments in Tokyo are typically small. Well, we don't like small. Relax in our 3-bedroom corner unit with three exposures which includes an 8-mat corner tatami room on the top floor of a very well built condominium, or mansion. Ask me about sightseeing, and I'll guide you and give you the low-down on the latest shops, and when you're pooped, we have iTunes/AppleTV, so you can even chill at home and watch a recent movie from the iTunes library on the large flat-screen TV when the hustle of the city and sightseeing have wiped you out one evening.
You'd have either the bed or tatami room with very comfortable futons/quilt bedding. For a negotiated rate, we consider relinquishing our bedroom with the queen bed, but the tatami room is very comfortable, and after all, you're visiting Japan. We sleep there, too, sometimes.
AMENITIES: washer/dryer, free wi-fi, a new GOLD'S GYM (with requisite fit, "happy" boys and pretty ladies), 3 supermarkets each literally 30-45 seconds away, lots of delicious local restaurants (particularly amazing udon and seafood, both at half the price you'd pay in Roppongi and 10x the taste), and a river that has one of Tokyo's famous sakura cherry tree sights.
CONCIERGE: You're not left in an empty apartment to figure it out all on your own. Not that you couldn't, but with limited time, don't you want to have a bit of the noise curated. You're gonna get the Tokyo fun "noise" anyway, so it's best to get it in loud and clear AND beautifully. So, we can help you out with your plans, tell you that great soba place or temple you should not miss. We can also call, read or write out something to help you to make arrangements, if necessary. E.g. you could bring any piece of paper back from a store, and we could make that call back to the proprietor to arrange for you to head back to get that piece you saw as a gift. Tokyo is our home; we love it. We'll help you to see this city with equal admiration.
The building is LITERALLY 30 SECONDS from the train, and 5-minutes' walk to access 3 other subway lines/JR--without battling 1,(phone number hidden)ther people. There is also nearby a, Some apartments push the fact that being 100 meters from Shibuya is ideal, but that's not how most people live. Who would want to live in an apartment the size of a closet in Times Sq?
