If you would like to be a short bit away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, my apartment is great. Sixteen minutes away from Shinjuku, which is one of the main train stations in Tokyo. Most people wind up really enjoying the neighborhood, which has the feel of a small village. So unless you are a late night person that wants to go to a lot of clubs, you will find my neighborhood a pleasant respite.
There are verandas covering two full sides of the apartment, wifi, TV, and in season, a lot of beautiful plants and flowers. It is a Japanese style apartment and you will sleep on a futon. I have low to the ground Japanese style furniture, and everything is very simple. The entire apartment was renovated five years ago. Lots of friendly neighbors to meet!
SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT- If you like, I now have a prepaid mobile phone available for your use. ¥100 a day plus paying for the minutes you use. It proves invaluable for the times you might get lost or turned around. You can either call me, or the person you are going to visit. Really makes for a more trouble free trip.
The daily price shown is for one person. For two people the price is ¥1,500 more per night.
I am a bodyworker, hypnotherapist, coach, and tarot card reader. Please ask for session if you like! :-)
I will take you around my neighborhood and show you good restaurants and shops. I enjoy cooking and I'll be happy to cook a meal or two for you, if you bring me back the basic ingredients. I have a large refrigerator which you can use while you are here.
It was a simple and enjoyable stay at Charlie's place. The neighborhood area is really quiet and it's only 15 minutes train to Takadanobaba station. There are many eateries and supermarkets around his place. I enjoyed it.
Very good stay at Charlie's place for my very fist time in Japan and Tokyo. Charlie is a great host, easy-going and we had great discussions about his life in Japan, his previous and upcoming projects. He also gave me good advice to visit a few places in Tokyo. Besides, this district of Tokyo is really great : it looks like a village with small shops, inexpensive restaurants, bikes everywhere, small residential building. I would really recommand the place if you are looking for a true japanese experience with a great American host !
Charlie is a great host. He's got a bevel of interesting life stories and experiences to share with you which I found most entertaining as well as a great source of information for getting around in Tokyo and how things work there. Overall, enjoyed my stay with home.
It was great staying with Charlie. Charlie is very easy and accommodating and also friendly and happy to help with any advice about a Tokyo visit. Great stay
Charlie is a very nice host. I really enjoyed my stay as well as our nice conversations.
Definitely a good place to stay and explore Tokyo.
Charlie and his apartment are an absolute gem, I was so lucky to have stayed here. Charlie is very welcoming and kind, and goes out of his way to help and make you feel at home. As a girl travelling alone, I felt very comfortable. I can't say enough good things about the area. I really felt like I was given an insight into life as a local that I wouldn't have had if I had stayed anywhere else. There are so many great places to eat and drink and at a really affordable price. I was getting up early and going out for breakfast at about 6am, and it was so great to see and smell all the wonderful food being prepared for the day ahead. It really did feel like a village. It's close to a train station and I found it very easy to get around. Charlie was kind enough to lend me his train pass, which made life so easy. If I go back to Tokyo I hope to stay here again. Thank you Charlie.
Staying with Charlie was great. The place wasn't difficult to find thanks to his thorough direction. The location was ok and it had many stores and restaurants around. It's a quite neighborhood.
Just one thing to consider, it's located near a local train station, meaning it's quite tiring to change the line to other lines traveling to other parts of Tokyo.
Charlie was a nice host. He's kind.
Thank you Charlie!
We stayed with Charlie for 6 nights and it was a pleasure. Charlie was an interesting guy and he made us feel very welcome. Charlie is very helpful if you need to get anywhere or do anything. Recommended :) Thanks Charlie.
Living in Charlie's was great. Charlie was very very helpful and quite very patient with me and my friend. He is also very flexible, especially about the time for your check out/in. We came quite late and left quite late as well. Overall we had a pleasant stay. Thanks Charlie.
