  • If you fancy a very pleasant and calm spot near the crazed epicentre of Shibuya (which I did) this is perfect. It's a very short walk to the crossing, station, shops, neon but you can escape it all to chill out. There's the four thousand restaurants of Shibuya close to hand but some very good ones in surprising places even closer, a minute from the apartment. The accommodation is modestly sized but extremely clean, well-arranged and comfortable. Geoff is a kind, superb source of information about all details of the area and travel arrangements and this was much appreciated on my first visit to Japan!

  • Fantastic stay! Location is great, with central station Shibuya a few minutes walk. 24 hours Lawsons, Family Mart and 7/11 are just around the corner. The portable wifi provided by Geoff have been invaluable.

    The packet wifi is perfect and useful. Good idea.

    Response from Geoff & Jo:

    Thanks Francois. Glad you appreciated all the information we gave. Happy it came in useful. Thanks again.

  • This apartment was awesome! Wonderful location in a surprisingly quiet neighborhood given its proximity to Shibuya station (5 minutes walking). The building was very clean, and has an elevator (lugging a heavy suitcase up 5 flights of stairs after a long trip is not fun). Loved having the 24-hour Family Mart just down the street for last minute purchases before heading back after a long day exploring. Geoff & Jo were very quick to respond to my emails, and extremely friendly. The place was immaculate. Very clean and well stocked. It was nice being able to do a load of laundry, and having the mobile WiFi unit was perfect. The bed was also extremely comfortable. Next time I'm in Tokyo, I will definitely be staying here. Thanks Geoff & Jo!

    Wow Alex thanks so much for the great review! Yes exactly - that's the great thing, it's close to everything in Shibuya but when you are at the apartment it's nice and peaceful. Sure we'd be glad to have you stay again.

  • Everything was absolutely flawless, the booking, the correspondence, the instructions and the accommodation. The flat is in a very good location within very easy walking distance from Shibuya station and was a perfect solution for our 4 day stay in Tokyo.

    Thanks for choosing to stay at our apartment Thomas. Glad you liked the location. Yes it's a good base for exploring Tokyo. Geoff and Joan

  • We stayed here during our last few days in Japan. It was in a great location and Geoff's clear instructions made it really easy to find! This little gem is tucked away but at the same time just minutes from all the action in Shibuya. The apartment is clean and spacious and had everything we needed. Geoff was also a really great host - he answered any questions we had promptly and was always happy to help with whatever we needed. Thanks Geoff and Jo for sharing your place with us. We hope to come back soon!

  • Great apartment in very convenient and quiet location. Directions were easily to follow and the apartment cosy and warm amid crazy, unexpected 35 cm snowfall! We had to contact Geoff and Jo about a couple of things and they were very helpful and quick to respond. Great location for exploring Tokyo.
