About This Listing
ABSOLUTE SUPERB LOCATION !
10 min walk to Shinjuku , Shibuya, Harajuku RARE Tokyo apt designed by ME !
Cedar floors, concrete walls, full kitchen,
TONS of light , view of Yoyogi Park, Skytree
and Tokyo Tower and the train sta is 30 sec walk away!
A VERY RARE SPACE FOR TOKYO .
"It has that NY feel" is what people always say .
The design is very simple , the space is very "airy" "lofty" . Real cedar wood floors, concrete walls and simply/tastefully furnished . The views from the living room and kitchen are GREAT. There are unobstructed views of Yoyogi Park , Skytree and Tokyo Tower and when its super clear Fuji Mountain . I am the owner of the apt and designed it myself .
Your sleeping space is a mid sized bedroom with big windows and great views of Yoyogi Park , Skytree and Tokyo Tower. It has a large closet too. The room is curtained off by thick black curtains and its set behind a 3/4 thick concrete wall. Its very private and I am at the opposite end of the apartment in a small BR.
(** note you may choose the BR I stay in if you prefer but 98% of guests dont as the other BR is nice ! The room im in is a small modern BR with sliding wood doors. I left ceiling-less so it feels bigger than it is. )
Both rooms fit a couple nicely or two that dont mind sleeping on the same futon. I can put a 3rd person on another futon in a nook next to the BR if needed.
Full use of the entire apartment.
VERY CLEAN modern bathroom, dryer , and a full kitchen . wireless internet etc etc ..
Interaction with Guests
I can help point you in the direction of great restaurants , bars, cafes, tourist attractions and many that are within walking distance !
The park , the park , THE PARK !
Oh and Meiji Shrine too !!
Again the park is just a minute walk away from the apt and the shrine is at the other end of the park.
Also many great cafe's and restaurants right in Yoyogi Hachiman , my hood . The area is relaxed and quiet but the walk over to all the madness in Shibuya, Shinjuku or Harajuku is only 10 mins ( 2 minute train ride) !
Yoyogi Hachiman is one of Tokyo's most sought after areas to live/be in for sure .
You will love it !!
1 minute walk to Yoyogi Koen station
(Chiyoda line) or Yoyogi Hachiman station (Odakyu Line) . Also directly infront of the buliding is the cute 100 yen bus that brings you to many fine destinations as well . Yoyogi Park (Tokyo's Central Park) and the famous Meiji Jingu Shrine is a 1 minute walk away.
Please smoke on the balcony while enjoying the wonderful view .
The apartment is exactly as described - it is a very nice space. Also very convenient access to the Metro and JR Line. Neighborhood is also great - quiet but access to a sample of most everything Tokyo has to offer from large to small scale, new and old, low-rise and high-rise - all within a 20-30 minute walking radius. And the Hachi restaurant Jesse recommended might be one of the best meals during the trip.
Apartment and host were great, had a pretty packed itinerary so didn't spend much time in the apartment. But the time we did, it was perfect. Clean and looked exactly like the pictures. Will stay here again if I get a chance to come back to Tokyo.
Jesse has a great apartment! Good view of Tokyo, ideal location for train, shops cafés etc. and a very comfy loft bed for guests. We had an enjoyable short stay in his apartment.
Super chill dude, nice enough to introduce me to his mates, very informative and welcoming. Very nixe pad. Super central location in a cool neighborhood. Wish I had stayed longer. Would not hesitate yo to book again next time around in Tokyo!
This apartment was perfect for my partner and I during our week in Tokyo.
It was: clean, in an excellent/convenient location, and Jesse was friendly and very accommodating.
Once we had our bearings, it was very easy to walk to Harajuku or Shibuya.
In the earlier days though, it was just a minute to walk to the train station.
We would definitely love to stay here again in the future and will 100% recommend it to friends.
Perfect location, 1 min to subway and trains, great food and cool Sento just few steps away...easy going and helpful host and nice flat with views....there was something in the flat that made feel the hearthbeat of Tokyo, felt like just being right on the spot.
Jesse's space looks like it's right out of a Selby pictorial. It's simultaneously stylized and warmly inviting. The home's textures and open spaces are the kind of design you usually only see in photo spreads. From the start of your visit, Jesse makes you feel completely at home. There are always little notes from him and he's available to answer any questions. He couldn't be kinder or more generous. Although we didn't see much of each other, he is a fun conversationalist and goes out of his way to make you feel like a welcome guest.
As for the location, it's everything you want. I couldn't keep up with the number of adorable restaurants and coffee shops near his apartment. You can't go wrong.
If you do stay there, please go to the Cafe Donky pastry shop and FedEx me one of everything.
