This large apartment in Shibuya has 2 bedrooms and a living room, is modern, newly renovated, and completely furnished, has a large balcony and lots of floor space (rare in Tokyo), and is located on the top (12th) floor with an incredible view of Shibuya, Mount Fuji (when it's clear) and constant natural light. While it is located in the lively neighborhood of Shibuya, only 5 minutes walk from Shibuya station (or alternatively 1 minute walk from Shinsen station on the Inokashira line), the neighborhood is surprisingly quiet and peaceful in the Shinsen restaurant mecca.
This includes all utilities. At a fraction the price of Tokyo's hotels but with much more space, convenience, and freedom, this is a great apartment for a couple, or could even fit four people comfortably.
Please note that one of the bedrooms has a traditional queen-sized bed, and the other bedroom has a very comfortable sofa (which works great for one person) and also a double-sized futon (with all bedding, and folds up into the closet. Most guests prefer the futon, which is comfortable and easily accommodates two adults.
There is no smoking in the apartment, but you may smoke on the balcony. Please contact me with any other questions!
You'll love the place!

Jonathan, the host, was very helpful with directions and any concerns I had prior to turning up and during my stay.
the apartment was beautiful and the location was perfect - walking distance from a lot if great things in the city.
However there are 'two' bedrooms but the second is just a large couch which is okay for one person for a night or two but not for an extended stay. We wish we were told there wasn't really two beds.
Great kitchen but no microwave.
Great shower and heating worked perfectly in the winter weather.
The apartment is perfectly located in a very quiet street of Shibuya, with shopping and entertainment zones only minutes away. Shibuya station is a short stroll and is a great hub to access other areas of the city. This was our first time in Tokyo, so the apartment was a perfect base for exploring. Jonathan was very quick with replies whenever we had any questions, so we couldn't have asked for more!
Jonathan's apartment was perfect for us. It fit four of us comfortably and we felt very at home. The balcony was amazing (even in winter!) and waking up to see Mt. Fuji every morning was wonderful. The building was quiet and peaceful, but just steps from crazy Shibuya. Jonathan was very efficient in communicating with us and the lockbox key system was a breeze.
Wi-fi worked perfectly, and was fast. It was great having a fridge that we could stock and a supermarket almost next door. Only suggestion we have is that some instructions for the Japanese washer and dryer would be helpful. We figured it out eventually, but because Jonathan offered such thorough instructions for the heating system we're sure that he'd be able to do the same for the laundry.
This was our first Airbnb experience and we loved it. Everything was so hassle-free. Thanks Jonathan! Highly recommend this apartment and would definitely return!
Jonathans place is was fantastic for my stay in Tokyo. It is certainly one of the largest places I have stayed in the city with a great balcony in a fun location.
Check in process as communication couldnt have been easier. Ive already recommended it to a number of friends looking to visit in the coming months.
The penthouse was great, its central location was perfect for exploring Shibuya (about 7 min walk to Shibuya Station) and the street in front of the building is lined with restaurants. The unit itself was large and comfortably slept three of us, though a few of the door frames were short and I hit my head a couple of times (I'm 6'4''). Overall, great location and unit. Thanks Jonathan
Really nice apartment in a great area of Tokyo. Clean with nice views (you really can see Mt. Fuji when the weather cooperates.). Was big enough for me, my wife and teenage daughter. Decent walk to Shibuya station but also another station just around the corner. Jonathan was very helpful with the necessary info.
Great location, a number of awesome restaurants and bars and very close to shibuya station. The flat is cosy, and can host 4 people if needed (although it is more for 2 persons only). Tokyo was terribly hot those days but after a bit the a/c prevailled. Overall, a very good place to visit Tokyo.
Me, my wife and a friend were visiting Japan for a few weeks and we were spending the last two weeks in Tokyo, Jonathan's apartment was not only easy to get to, but in such a great location that it was hard to beat. The two bedrooms really helped us unwind after long days of walking and seeing everything that Tokyo had to offer. The neighborhood, while lined with restaurants, is quiet at night and you are really close to all the late-night action that Shibuya has to offer.
It's also very close to a convenience store and a grocery store where we could buy food items to cook before taking on the day.
We'll definitely see if it is available again when we return to Tokyo.
Great neighborhood, building, apartment and host. I've been to Tokyo a half-dozen times and would stay here again in a second on a return trip and recommend it to any first-time visitor as well.
Sleeps 3 very comfortably. Excellent kitchen, bathroom, cool deck. As good as the apartment is, the surrounding area is arguably better. The building is 10 steps from great fish, ramen, bbq and pizza restaurants. There are convenience stores and a 24-hour (I think) grocery store within a 2-3 minute walk. Shibuya Station and Crossing are 6-7 minutes walk. Even with all of this going on the immediate area is calm/quiet.
I found it a bit challenging to find the building at first, so print a good map!, but got oriented quickly.
And then finally Jonathan was an excellent host -- got back to me quickly on email, provided suggestions for restaurants/areas worth seeing, and made check-in and out painless.
The apartment is great for 2 or possibly 3 people. In the bedroom there is a double bed and proper curtains that shuts out the sunlight. Unfortunately, there are no real curtains to block out sunlight in the other room making it suboptimal as a sleeping place although it has a comfortable sofa that can serve as a sleeping place for one person. Although the apartment is very close to Shibuya station we were never disturbed by loud noises or anything like that. The balcony is really great with nice views and it is quite long (but narrow) so that many people can sit on it. The internet connection was working fine and high speed.
The apartment is located in a very nice area and there are lots of really good restaurants literally on the same street. There is a 24h convenient store less than 100 meters away on the same street. The area also has lots of nice bars and the famous nightclub Womb. Further, the area is great starting point to explore other parts Tokyo e.g. with walking distance (30 min) to Harajuku but also provides easy access to Roppongi, Shinjuku and other areas. Given the area and the style of the apartment I think it caters best to “hipster” visitors in ages 20 – 38 years.
In sum, I can highly recommend this place for 2 or possibly 3 people - 2 people sharing the double bed and one person, who unfortunately will be disturbed by the early sunlight, sleeping on the sofa. Jonathan replied to all emails quickly (within one day) and provided us with detailed and accurate information – a great host!
