  • The apartment is an affordable, simple and central 3-bedroom shared flat close to Harajuku. It is very easy to get to anywhere in the city; and even more importantly, if you miss the last train at night, a cab will be affordable or you might even be able to just walk home from areas like Roppongi. There is a 7-Eleven (w/ ATM) right next door and a Natural Lawson around the corner, so you can easily get anything a Kombini can offer 24/7.

    The bedroom contains a bed, a small desk and a closet with ample space. The bathroom is equipped with a small Japanese-style tub, a shower, a washing machine and a dryer. The kitchen is fully equipped with the usual utensils (stove, fridge, rice-cooker, ...). Naturally, both bathroom and kitchen are shared with the other two tenants; but there was never an issue with this while I was there.

    The only downside to the room is that the air conditioner in the bedroom is an old model which sits inside the window frame. It is very loud, not very effective and not well insulated. Warm air from outside can come right back inside. On the other hand, the one in the kitchen (on the photo, above the glass door) is a modern, powerful and quiet model. I resorted to not using the one in the bedroom while not closing the bedroom door fully at night to allow cold air to come in from the kitchen.

    Miyuki is the sweetest host on earth (even for Japanese standards), trying very hard to make her guests comfortable. I had to leave early on Monday morning for my flight, so she made the extra effort to come in on a Sunday night even though she typically wouldn't be in the office on Sundays. Her office is on the same floor as the apartment, so if there is anything you need help with, she is usually there to assist.

    If you're not looking for something fancy, this is the perfect place to stay. I would definitely come again.

  • Miyuki was so very helpful and stayed back after hours to wait for me to arrive. The place was comfortable, clean and in the best location, within minutes of Harajuku and a couple of stops from Shibuya. I'd definitely stay here again when I visit Tokyo next. Thank you for such a pleasant stay.

  • The location's wonderful. It's close to Harajuku and the famous Takeshita street. Close to 3 different train lines. The housemates are almost never at home so you feel like you have the whole apartment to yourself. The room n toilet is relatively clean although a little messy. There is a supermarket nearby and a 7-11 just on the ground level of the apartment building,

  • Miyuki is the most smily face I met when I landed In Tokyo. She offered me a conveniant and confortable house. She was so welcoming and helpful, had a clue about everything, solving each problem with great efficiency and kindness. She's also very funny and I hope i'll have the opportnity to host her someday in Paris.
