  • Love the apartment!!!! it's small however it has all the necessities that you need! The location is also near Takeshita Dori where restaurants, cafe's and shops are all lined up. The harajuku station is only a short walk away, so you're basically one train ride away from Shibuya. You can also take a 15 min walk to the Meiji Jingu Shrine and Yoyogi Park. Will definitely stay here again when i go back to Tokyo.. I fully recommend this place. Oh, and also Mink was extremely helpful and accomodating and made it easy for me to find the pad. Lastly, the portable wifi was a savior!

  • Jan's flat is ideally located near the very central area of Harajuku. It does feel quite small but it suits well if you're going to be exploring the city and simply need a place to sleep/rest a bit before going out! The portable wifi is also very useful as it allows you to get Internet pretty much everywhere, which is definitely a plus for tourists! Overall a nice stay, good value for money.

  • Cosy apartment in a fantastic location!! A short walk from Harajuku Station on the JR Yamanote Line. Loved every night I stayed here :-) Jan was always quick to respond to any query via email while I was there. Would recommend this unit to a solo traveller or a couple. Neighborhood was quiet considering the location!

  • The apartment is in a great location, close to shops and trains. While it is small ( probably average size for it's location), it is clean, quiet and comfortable.
    There's a good craft beer place within a minute's walk.
    Jan gave very detailed instructions and was very helpful with allowing a late checkout.

  • We had a wonderful stay for 1 week at Jan's apartment. Location was simply amazing, so close to the JR Harajuku train station and Meiji Jingumae subway station. It was also 2 doors down from one of Tokyo's best craftbeer tap house (The Harajuku Taproom, Baird's Brewerey). Directions were good and no hassle for check-in and check-out. Location was quiet and easy to carry the luggage up one flight of short stairs.

    The actual room itself was very small especially for 2 people travelling with 2 pieces of luggage. It was difficult to move around the apartment without tripping over something. You just need to be very organised and tidy at all times.

    As a host Jan responded quickly with any questions. The portable wifi was really handy to take out. I noticed a review about the internet being slow, we noticed that the performance varied. Sometimes it was very fast at other times it would not load but we can't complain as the wifi was very handy.

    Thanks Jan for a lovely stay!

  • It was an amazing week in Tokio. The apartment was very good located only a few minutes walk to metro station. The Takeshita street it was 1 minute of the apartment so It was easy to.find cafes and restaurants in that area. Jan was very helpful and answer all our questons so quickly. Thanks a lot. We hope to visit Japan again.

  • Great little apartment, unbeatable position. Jan's instructions were excellent so we had no problem finding the place. It's so close to harijuku station so getting around tokyo was very easy and it's right in the heart of harijuku so close to lots of restaurants and shops. The apartment was also very quiet so it was easy to sleep.

    It is small but the bed was big enough for two adults to share comfortably.

    Highly recommended. Jan was also very attentive and answered my emails almost instantly.
