※Updated on July 1st, 2014. Before that, we did not have a laundry, a refrigerator or a microwave, but now we got them!
KITASANDO (北参道) is just an awesome location. This place is so special becaust it is very close to Harajuku station, yet very quiet and private. It is just 10 minute walk to Harajuku station. Even if you stay out late in Shibuya or Shinjuku, you can come back here by a short ride on taxi.
The neighborhood is beautiful here. You can see the NTT Docomo Yoyogi Building from the entrance, which looks like the Empire State Building in New York City. Even though this studio is close to the heart of Harajuku, it is so quiet around here that you can sleep well at night.
If you want to be close to Shibuya, Shinjuku and the rest of Tokyo, it is the BEST location.

The apartment was in a great location for the train or a walk to harajuku and the surrounding area.
The apartment was clean and had everything we needed for our stay.
The pocket wifi was great to have too
Great little apartment in the heart of it all . Location was spot on , just a 10min walk to Harajuku/Omotesando shopping area, 10 min walk to Shinjuku, 10 min walk to Yoyogi park . Transport was also a breeze with Harajuku station being a 5/10 min walk or Kitasando station which was even closer at about 3/4 min walk.
Apartment was exactly as described . Small but cosy, neat and comfortable . Hosts were great and responded to all requests immediately, will definitely try to stay here again when we come back .
Fantastic location and amenities. Just 5 mins from the station. Hosts are very responsive and accommodating :)

Perfect little studio apartment in Harajuku we felt right at home in this lovely place, the bed was comfy and the apartment was spotless. Host was so helpful in the run up to our trip and the pocket wi-fi included was a lifesaver allowing us to use (website hidden) maps around Tokyo.
