About This Listing
A fashionable Japanese style apartment with view and trendy location.
Private room/shared apartment in security building near high-fashion areas of Azabu-JuBan and Roppongi Hills.
Tokyo location is the ultimate for business or for clubbing.
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.
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.
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!
Private toilet room with locking door and a clean modern Japanese washlet/bidet toilet. (Woohoo)
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).
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.
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)
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.
You may cook and use the pots, pans and fridge if you want.
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)
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.
The bars and cafes are open all night and you can drink and party yourself silly if you like.
(Just please don't barf in the house. lol)
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
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 if I didn't share already)
WiFi is also available at Starbucks by registering in advance here: (website hidden)_index_en.html
The best Starbucks in Tokyo.
A high fashion hangout with both outdoor seating and high ceilings.
Great for people watching, picking up, making friends, or just getting work done. Open til 4AM and 3 min away.
I know this listing may be slightly overpriced, but it just gets too busy sometimes so I've raised the price a little -- however it is still a 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.
Deposit for key and damages. You will get ALL of it back when you return the key with no damages. (Normal wear and tear is not considered damage)
Friends and guests are no problem. Feel free to bring them over as long as they more-or-less fit in the room. But "spontaneous" guests only please.
The flat of Wes was the best location I could have choosen for my tokyo exploring trip. From roppongi hills you can get quite quick to every other spot in the city.
His flat is quite authentic to daily japanese standards and for some days I enjoyed living like them.
At all Wes was a fabulous host and he really cares for his guests and shows you some nice tricks you won't see if u would stay in hotel
This apartment was great for my stay!
The area around the apartment is very quiet and fun, just a 5 min walk to Roppongi!
This apartment was perfect for my weekend stay! It was very clear that Wes has put a lot of effort into creating a very welcoming atmosphere, taking convenience to another level. Every small detail is making this place the perfect one for visiting Tokyo. The area around the apartment is very quiet, yet just a 5 min walk to the night life of Roppongi!
Wes was very kind and helpful, as well as quick and clear in communication!
I will definitely return to Tokyo, and most importantly I will stay at this place again - highly recommended!
And to Wes: Thank you for making this possible!
Wes is an interesting guy, though we only had a short conversation, I can get that he had many hobbies and much to share about Japan. The house is perfect located but the room maybe a little bit crowded for 2 , especially when you carry too much luggage. We really enjoyed our time in Tokyo and appreciated Wes's help with us. I surely will come back to Wes's place to chat with him again.
A great place inhabited by a great guy. Location is top class, with a lovely atmosphere permeating the area, including but not limited to tasty eateries and varied night life. Wes leaves nothing to chance and is a great communicator, meaning you'll never feel at sea during your stay. If you are new to Tokyo then there is no better place!
About the Host, Wes
Whoever has the most fun wins. I don:t intend to win. but I intend to have as much fun as possible. I love my place for its access to nightlife, I hope that is why you will come to visit and enjoy.
I go dancing Salsa several times a week. I do hip-hop on the weekends, fancy shmancy executive bars on 2-3 weeknights, chit-chat over coffee 1-2 days a week, and movies every time I can get a date. Life is great. Tokyo is so fun, safe and cosmopolitan. This is the best location to enjoy it. My home is your home and I want you to feel welcome.
I also love intellectual conversation. Having guests with different points of views, skills, and experience sets is always exciting. It has been great hosting AirBnB guests for me. I hope to meet more and more interesting people.
I majored in "Japanology" in university. I am a learned and graduated Japan specialist. I can tell you about the modern and historical intricacies about Japan. Japan has spent considerable effort to make this a fun, safe and clean place. I have lots of respect for that and hope you enjoy Japan too and learn something to take home to your home country as well.
I grew up all over Los Angeles county as a foster care youth. My ancestors are 100% native sons of the US for over 5 generations (so don't ask me where I'm from LOL). I have been in Japan for over 15 years now. It is not always perfect, but home is where you make it.
My life is simple, hack this life and maximize my own potential. Therefore, I try to stay outdoors and keep moving, dancing, grooving and hustling.
Thanks for reading.
