About this listing

Experience life in the "real Tokyo"
A quiet, sleepy residential neighborhood 40min by train from the center of the city, with great views over a valley! Recommended for longer stays on a budget! Minimum stay policy applies.
Spacious 35.60 sq meters (383 sq ft), newly furnished
Located in Makuhari Hongo, on a dead-end street in a quiet residential neighborhood
Warning! This is a real Japanese Apartment, built about 25 years ago (so not new!), and representative of the living situation of real Tokyo residents/commuters. The walk from the station is pleasant, but it does take 15 minutes. This is NOT a hotel, and our price reflects that.
However, if you are on a budget, the extended (weekly and monthly) rates here are hard to beat!
Great views! This apartment is situated on the crest of a hill; windows and balcony overlook a valley and plenty of greenery

About the Host, L.
Hi! I grew up in Canada and went to college in the US. Now I find myself living and working in Tokyo, Japan, where I have been for the last several years. Recently, we have started helping my mother-in-law open up her conveniently-located apartment to guests from around the world!
