Description

The Space

If you like to go out and enjoy the high-life on a budget and experience the best Tokyo nightlife has to offer: fashionable cafes, gourmet dining, high-class bars, its dives and drinking holes on a moderate budget, this is the best place.
There are lots of fashionable people, both men and women alike, in this very cosmopolitan area of Central Tokyo.

JAPANESE STYLE:
This apartment has a real Japanese feel. It is not like most of the other listings that are sterilized modern expat apartments or junky small beehive Japanese apartments. This is a traditionally designed semi-luxury apartment.

VALUE:
The cost is moderate, cheap enough to live long term and competitive with local rental rates. I'm sure you will enjoy your stay and feel you got a good bargain.

YOUR OWN PRIVATE ROOM:
This room has a view of wide open sky and Tokyo tower.
Air-conditioning/heating with a large east facing sliding door/window and small balcony with plants for fresh air. It gets great morning sun for healthy people like me that are into feng shui like me.
The space is clean with new wallpaper and flooring (2013).
The room is quiet in the back and over 100 meters off the main street. You'll sleep fine!

Guest Access

TOILET:
Private toilet room with locking door and a clean modern Japanese washlet/bidet toilet. (Woohoo)

BATH/SHOWER:
Nice large wood and tile bath/shower room. Clean with a sunny window. Great for sunny morning showers.

The bath is a deep style Japanese bath (superior to a western bath for getting IN the water and just relaxing).

AMENITIES:
I have amenities for guests if you forget to bring soap, shampoo, conditioner, a new disposable hair brush or a hair dryer, etc. for guests. It's all personal size and you can take with you. If you need anything specific just let me know.

PRIVATE SPEAKERS
I've added a pair of Yamaha speakers (mini jack) so you can plug in your device to play your own music for relaxation and privacy. (I don't care how loud you party, as long as the neighbors don't complain --which is unlikely)

AIR/HEATER
The room has its own electric air-conditioning/heater. The house also has a GAS heater that extends into your room. Sure to keep you cozy this winter.

KITCHEN
You may cook and use the pots, pans and fridge if you want.

LAUNDRY:
I have a washing machine also available for guests to use anytime. A clothesline is right outside your sliding door on the small covered veranda/patio. Dry cleaners is also nearby.

Interaction with Guests

I ask to have tea/coffee with my guests at least once.

The washing machine is on your side of the unit so sometimes I might have to get to it or laundry. But this is rare and quick.

And sometimes I have to water the plants during the hot summer to keep your room cool and green.

(Mostly I do this when guests are not in to avoid disturbing them)

The Neighborhood

This is the hippest and most exciting area in Tokyo. It's where the high-class merges with the club/street culture of Roppongi with Ferrari's and Lamborghini's driving down the street all day.

Here is in the absolute center of Tokyo. Get anywhere quick. I'll show you around to the hotspots and how to get around and make friends in Japan. Just bring yourself and I'll hook you up with the rest.

The real good thing here is it is close to the Tokyo "high life". Swank Roppongi Hills and wild Roppongi nightlife famous for expats and visitors to drink and party. Girls and guys in the area are all very fashionable. It's live here 24/7 with great restaurants and cafes all night with a little sophistication. You'll not be constricted by the area or rules.
Honestly if you don't utilize these advantages another listing is maybe more cost effective. Either way you're very welcome to stay and I'd love to host you.

Getting Around

Easy access to all of Tokyo.
SUBWAY: Three major lines
- Oedo line (5min)
- Nanboku line (7min)
- Hibiya line (8min)

BUS: Three local lines from Roppongi Hills
- To Shibuya
- To Shinagawa
- To Aoyama
- +++Etc.

ACCES FROM AIRPORT:
I recommend to take the Limousine bus service to the Roppongi Hills Grand Hyatt. The trains takes longer and require 2 confusing transfers.

BICYCLE AVAIL for FREE:
I have one extra bicycle for guests to ride and travel around Tokyo. Usage of this bike is free for guests, BUT if you break it; you fix it.

Other Things to Note

Super-fast fiber optic internet line. Connect by LAN for maximum speed or by WiFi.
(Just ask for the password)

WiFi is also available at the local Starbucks which is a local hangout/meet spot and the best Starbucks in Tokyo.
With outdoor seating and high ceilings it's a great for people watching, making friends, or just getting work done. Open til 4AM and 3 min away.

====================
This listing may seem slightly overpriced, but it just gets too busy sometimes -- however it is still a way better bargain because of the great location. IMHO
The benefits compared to another places is this area is hip and exciting 24/7, 24hr shopping (1min), fine dining till the wee hours of the morning, clubs and nightspots (7min), and a great Starbucks meet spot open till 4am (3min). You won't find that convenience almost anywhere else in Tokyo.
