##Airport Limousine Bus##
I would always recommend taking the airport limousine, as it is the easiest and least amount of stress getting to Shibuya. The link to the bus is provided here: limousine (website hidden) (do) jp/en/
**NOTE** I have provided bus details in the directions section, but please make sure to get off at "Excel Hotel Tokyu" at "Mark City" in Shibuya.

##Tokyo Tour Guides##
There are free tour guides available in Tokyo. For information on what they provide please contact (phone number hidden). They have a website at kimi will (website hidden).

##Money Withdrawal##
Many banks do not accept international credit cards in Japan. You will either need to use Citibank or a 711 to make a withdrawal. Both of these businesses are a few blocks from the apartment. Please contact your bank in advance to inform them you are traveling to prevent a lock on your card when you use it.

##Goal##
My goal is for you to enjoy your stay in my apartment and Tokyo. Please do not hesitate to ask me for anything you may need or suggestions for making your stay easier and more comfortable.

I hope to see you in Tokyo soon!

  • We stayed 5 nights here. It's a safe and quiet neighbourhood. Everything was super easy thanks to the Welcome Pack email. We only had trouble finding the place at first because it was a messy rainy day.

    Devin was really patient during the whole booking process and our stay. He sent us regular updates. We really appreciated that.

    Though there were 5 of us, I think the place would fit 4 people comfortably.

    I recommend booking your airport limousine tickets with the hotel reception at Excel Hotel Tokyo in advance to secure your seats.

  • It's a great stay we had in D&Js apartment in Shibuya! Can't really beat the location - easy access to the JRs and bunch of good local restaurants just around the corner!! The apartment itself is adequate in size and it's clean, with more than enough amenities prepared by the host. It was a good choice for two of us to stay and we enjoyed it :)

    You're very welcome Cleone! We would love to host you again. We're glad that our directions made the apartment easy to find :)

  • No good at writing reviews so I'll keep it simple. The pros: Host is very helpful and provided useful information packs, Great location, 10 minute walk to JR Shibuya Station, Easy to find, Wonderfully furnished, Free WiFi, Clean & secure amenities.
    The cons: WiFi: internet browsing didn't work but we didn't mind as we had our own WiFi and sleeping 6 was 'cozy'. This place is perfect for 4 people.

    Definitely would stay again but with less people.

  • Stayed at the Shibuya apartment for 3 nights and it was awesome. Just as described, the apartment comfortably slept 4 adults and was in located in a prime location.

    The instructions provided was easy to read and we found the apartment in no time (even during the snow storm !!)

    Devin was a lovely host and was always available when needed and was nice enough to quickly show us around the area.

    The next time i visit tokyo i will be sure to stay there again!

    It was really great meeting you Peter and showing you around the area! We are really happy to know that all 4 of you slept comfortably in the apartment and had a great time. We really love the prime location of the apartment too!

  • Great location if you want to go clubbing. Only a short walk away from the main clubbing area. a great small cozy place. Definitely was tight for 5 people with big luggage. Was a smaller space than i imagined. Located centre of Shibuya, where the actions at. Provided handy notes and information. Would definitely come back to stay again, especially because it is so close to the Shibuya crossing, shops, restaurants and stores!

    We are so glad you loved being so close to all of the action in the center of Shibuya Lena! Please come and visit us again :)

  • Devin was very easy to communicate with and quick to respond to messages. The apartment itself was clear and was in a great location, very close to so many great restaurants and bars and in a very safe location. The instructions provided on finding the location were easy to follow. The pocket wifi is highly underrated and a life saver when navigating the streets and subways of Tokyo. Overall, loved our stay here and would not hesitate to book with them again.

About
Hey everyone - ようこそ! Thanks for checking out our page! We are both long-term Tokyo hosts who decided to work together to offer our guests the best Tokyo experience available on Airbnb. Tokyo is the worlds most populous metropolis, yet our apartments are designed to make you feel like you never left the comfort of your own home. Whether you are looking to stay in the pulsating urban excitement that Tokyo is synonymous for (Shibuya and Ebisu) or you are more interested in a charming, hip and local neighborhood breeming with trendy vintage shops, delicious restaurants, and cosy coffeebars (Shimokitazawa), we have got you covered. I (Dee) have been in Japan for over 5 years now and currently in the midst of studying for an MBA. When I have free time, I like spending it in Shibuya and Ebisu, two of my favorite neighborhoods in Tokyo. As soon as you set foot in either location, you can’t help but absorb the energy of the city and realize why everyone owes it to themselves to visit Tokyo at least once in their lives! Jay: https://www.airbnb.com/users/show/1759480 I (Jay) am a native of California who has been living for nearly ten years in Japan. I enjoy exercising, playing sports, studying new languages, and experiencing different cultures. I love meeting new people and making new friends, so what better way to go about this than by serving as a host on Airbnb in what I feel is the greatest city in the world-Tokyo! In my free-time I love spending it in the ridiculously cool and hip neighborhood of Shimokitazawa - a quick 4 minute train ride from the metropolis of Shibuya. If you are looking for Shibuya and Ebisu listings, you have come to the right place. I have over 10 properties that are all located just minutes from each of the stations. Supplied with all of the amenities you will need during your visit. If you are looking for Shimokitazawa apartments, please check out our other profile (J & D) to see all of the other great apartments we have available! Thanks again for looking. Feel free to drop us a message at anytime with any Tokyo related questions you may have. We’re always happy to help out. ☺ Kampai! ☺ Life motto is “Do not take the road everyone else takes, for it will only get you stuck in traffic.”
