The Space

WELCOME---Please read all the information as it may answer all of your questions. THANK YOU.

I am an experienced host who has thought out every part of your stay to make it a simple, smooth, convenient process for you from self check-in to self check out with no waiting around for me and everything prepared for you!! I am one of the original hosts here in Tokyo starting in October, 2011 when there were hardly any listenings here. I have high expectations of myself, my team, and expect me to treat you like I would want to be treated. My goal is to be efficient, transparent, dependable, and ensure your accommodation is enjoyable throughout your stay!!

NOW ONTO this Listing!!


I have a private Japanese style TATAMI flooring room with lock in my 3 bedroom house available. It's pretty BIG and very comfortable. Perfect room for a couple or a couple of friends. Actually,there is a big closet to put your bags in and hang your clothes which then allows enough room to put 2 futons on the floor to have 3 beds so 3 friends could squeeze in and have their own bed. ( Much better than a hostel ) I will give you a set of keys for the house and room so you can come and go as you please. There is no curfew.

Conveniently near ROPPONGI and central SHIBUYA, Ebisu is easily accessed by the JR Yamanote (the main Tokyo Train Loop) and Hibiya lines via Ebisu Station. Together with the trendy neighboring communities of Daikanyama and Hiroo, it has boutiques, vintage stores and patisseries all within easy walking distance from Ebisu station. Therefore, Ebisu is one of the most expensive places to live in in Tokyo. You will be closer to almost everything here. Just think of the money you will save in train fare, taxi fare, and the extra time you will have to be enjoying TOKYO.

EBISU: Upscale neighborhood home to Ebisu Garden Place which includes The Beer Museum Yebisu and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography!!
Ebisu Station is surrounded by restaurants and lively at night.
Footnik (Soccer), What the Dickens (Live Music), and Red Dragon ( Foreign Food) are popular in the area.

FREE: in-house Wi-Fi, bedding, towels, and basic toiletries provided. You are free to use the washing machine, living room, and kitchen as well. There is bicycle or motorbike parking included if needed. I may have an extra bicycle I can rent you too if you are interested.

Big SHOWER Room with bathtub and separate Toilet room.
Bathroom SINK w/ big MIRROR.
HAIRDRYER and IRON available.
A/C and HEATER in every room.

ALSO, I have 2 other bedrooms in this house if you need to accommodate 4-7 people. I usually live here but I often travel as well. Please email if you would like to rent out 2 bedrooms at the same time and we can build it into 1 reservation. It is also possible to rent out the whole!! I have a separate listing for this.

LISTINGS: I have about 15 units/apartments around the city on Airbnb so check "my other listings" too please!!

I'm okay with it ( but of course they need to go home the next day :) i want you to enjoy your stay here!! I know this is a much more comfortable stay than a hostel and definitely cheaper than a regular hotel but with basically the same amenities.


Check-in: Times are flexible but YOU must request by email an early check-in (before 4pm). You can always drop your bags off early. Late check-in is always available.
Check-out: 12 NOON. You can leave your bags in the living room and come back later for them if needs be.

Availability: My caledar is basically ALWAYS UP-TO-DATE no matter what this website says. For your convenience, there is no need to ask me if it is available. Also, last-minute bookings are usually no problem. Typically, the first paid reservation will get the apartment/room. A short introduction of yourself is always nice.

Train Information: Train timetables are on 2 websites: Hyperdia or Jorudan Trains in Japan. All the info you need is there! There is also an Airport Limousine Bus (not expensive) that has direct service from Narita and Haneda airports to the Westin Hotel very near my house. All 3 have English websites.

Directions: Excellent walking directions from Ebisu train station and The Westin Hotel are provided in your itinerary after booking.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This is a really lovely place in a serene neighbourhood. The place is as described with everything as promised. Ebisu station is just 10 minutes walk away, and from there you can get to anywhere to explore the city. There also are various convenience stores and restaurants within walking distance. I'd definitely recommend this place!

    June 2014
  • The place is very conveniently located in a calm neighborhood in walking distance of Ebisu station, from where you can easily explore the city. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Self-Check-In / Check-Out works perfectly. Would definitely stay there again!

    May 2014
  • Will's self check-in system was amazing and well organized. The house was in a really convenient place in Tokyo, and the apartment was in a very good shape. There are three bedrooms, but each with its complete privacy. All the amenities were there, and was all in all a very good and comfortable staty.

    March 2014
  • A very convenient location with within 10min walk to the Ebisu station for JR or the metro. Will was also very responsive and answered all our questions. The place was very clean and neat, overall a great experience. Thanks Will!

    November 2013
  • Host left detailed instructions, no problem finding the place.
    Was with my girlfriend, but had 2 mismatched single beds put together.

    It was probably a rare occasion, but we didn't meet our host, who could probably have given us tips on where to go/find things - which could've been helpful given we were 15 minute walk to metro through a very quiet residential neighbourhood, 20 to busier Ebisu area

    Otherwise, exactly as a expected, an inexpensive last minute place to sleep in Tokyo.

    November 2013
  • Will was a good host, helpful, friendly and cheerful. We were completely independent and grateful for his wifi mobile device that made a big difference in Tokyo. Thank you Will!

    September 2013
  • We greatly enjoyed our stay at Will's. He was very hospitable and when available he always did his best to help us with any questions or problems we had. The room itself was clean, definitely spacious and comfortable for two people, even enough space for a third person. Aircon was properly functioning, and quite some closet space.

    Kitchen and bathroom facilities were available and clean including one of those typical high-tech Toto toilets. Unfortunately, we had a single encounter with a cockroach in the common living room. We felt we had to mention it, but it really shouldn't keep anyone from staying at Will's. After three weeks in Japan we've come to the conclusion that they're pretty much unavoidable and Will reassured us that he's doing everything he can to keep these pests away.

    We had the chance to take his portable Wi-Fi router around town, which was a great help for finding our way in our first few days in Tokyo. However, there's only one router available, so if there are other guests, you can't take it with you.

    Will's place has a great location for discovering the special wards of Tokyo and Will was even kind enough to take us out one evening and we had a blast!

    In conclusion, we were very happy that Will was our first host for our three week journey throughout Japan. He helped us a great deal and we would definitely recommend him to all young travellers who are on a budget.

    July 2013
  • Had a great stay at Will's: accommodation is exactly as described, and the location was conveniently near Shibuya and Roppongi. The train station was a short walk away which made getting around the city extremely easy, as well as getting to/from the airport.

    Will was a exemplary host, both in writing and in person: friendly, clear and easy-going.

    Would definitely stay with him the next time around. Highly recommended!

    June 2013
  • A spacious and enjoyable place, Will's directions were incredibly helpful! My friend and I really loved its cozy atmosphere and were able to have a great Japan trip with Will's place as a home base.

    May 2013
  • Excellent space - perfect for two guys needing an affordable place to stay for a couple of nights. Would also work for 3-4 people snugly. Will was very quick with communication.

    Close to Roppongi - short walk to a couple of the subways. Safe area. Would highly recommend.

I love Tokyo. This place is just indescribably cool. You can stay up all night and find whatever you want, whenever you want. Not only that, I have never felt unsafe here no matter where I was. I guess you will just have to come here and find out for yourself about how awesome this city is!! I have been in Tokyo about 7 years now and there is so much to do that you can never get bored. Also, it's not as expensive as everyone might think. There are definitely cheap places around to eat and drink!!! And ALL the restaurants here are delicious. You don't need a recommendation really as it any place you walk into will be good. I love sports of any kind, keeping busy, and laughing. I also really enjoying spending time with my friends. We eat out, drink, dance, play billiards, darts, and sing karaoke. I love meeting new people too. Nothing like sharing some good stories from around the globe. I am not fluent in Japanese but I'm getting better and usually can get what is needed on my own. I like to enjoy life and live in the moment so I'm pretty easygoing. I am a full time airbnb host. I now have over 35 listings and just love it! I am really getting into this Airbnb thing so I am keeping pretty busy but I will do my best to help you with what you need. Finally, It is my goal that people have an awesome, relaxed, and stress free vacation so I hope you choose to stay with me at one of my places!! I may be easygoing but I am serious about business and relationships. I will make sure that your accommodation here is comfortable and you have what you need. I do have a support network here to help me as well. You can view all of our listings from my profile page by clicking on 'View all listings' blue button in the lower left hand corner. Hope to hear from you soon!!
