  • The apartment was comfortable and the location is fantastic. An easy train ride to anywhere, and Mink made check-in super easy. Thanks!

  • Loved our stay at Jan's apartment! It had very easy access to Harajuku Station (which can get you just about anywhere in central Tokyo quickly enough) and Takeshita Dori. It was much larger than any hotel room we would have gotten at the same price, and we had use of a washing machine while there! The apartment was clean and had several amenities you'd expect from a hotel--shampoo, conditioner, body soap, iron, blow dryer, etc. The only thing I would point out is that the beds in this apartment are only futons, which is a cool part of Japanese culture to experience, but if you have issues with sleeping on the floor due to joint/back problems, you may want to look for an apartment with beds instead. However, my friends and I made it through well-enough.

    Also, Jan was very quick to respond to my questions and was very friendly. She responded to all of my messages in less than 24 hours, and usually, within an hour!

    We loved our stay here and will definitely consider staying here on our next trip to Tokyo!

  • Very cute apartment in an amazing location. Jan let us check in early and check out late. Beds were comfortable, the flat had everything we needed and the portable wifi was a lifesaver. Highly recommended. Thanks so much, Jan!!!!

  • Our stay at Mink's was really great. Getting a chance to experience tatami flooring in the bedroom was a treat, especially because the amount of blankets available made for an extremely cozy bedroom. Although it smelled like smoke (probably just from the previous people), that cleared out after the first day and otherwise we had zero complaints. The location was awesome, being just off the main drag of Takeshita street. Cafe Masumiya was a spectacular find, especially because of my vegetarian girlfriend. And I truly enjoyed being near the shrine that was just around the corner if you headed out your door to the right. The people from the night before had broken something in the bathroom and Mink was very communicative, letting us know that someone would be by to fix it, etc. and was pleasant the whole way through.

  • The apartment was simple, but so very convenient location wise. It is right in the middle of Harajuku, and accessible by subway and train.
    There were a few minor maintenance things that came up during our stay e.g. burnt out lightbulbs, and the host was jumping in to solve the problem immediately.
    Speaking of which.... the host's times were speedy - sometimes I wonder if she ever sleeps!
    Definitely will consider staying here again :)

  • Apartment is conveniently located. Very warm and cozy. Minutes away from Harajuku Stn. Had everything we needed (washing machine, heater, iron) Mink is a great host, promptly replies and helps with whatever she can.

    Shower clogs under heavy usage (there were 4 of us) apartment had a funky smell (believed to be the moth ball at the main door) Power trips when too many plugs were in use.

    In conclusion, extremely reasonable pricing for a apartment located in prime area. Will rent again if back in tokyo.

  • Great location for shops but was a nicely quiet area compared to the bustling main street. Would stay here again. Great that you could take wifi box around with you. Perfect for 2 people
