The apt is located in central Tokyo where Shibuya, Ebisu, Roppongi, Aoyama & Omotesando are all within 12-20 min walk. The apt is located in one of the nicest residential districts in Shibuya with many embassies and schools.
You will be sharing the place with me, an ex-New Yorker who works in the IT industry and is not home much. I used to room-share back in Brooklyn too, so I'm pretty used to the whole roommate thing as well.
Feel free to use the kitchen. The bath tub can be prepared automatically at your convenience. The bedroom & the living room (where I'll sleep when renting my bedroom) is separated by a long hallway, so you will have plenty of privacy.
On foot, it is about 10 min to Hiroo Station, 16 min to Shibuya, 18 min to Ebisu, Roppongi & Omotesando. If you don't wanna walk, there's a bus to Shibuya & Ebisu right around the corner (1 min from apt.), which will get you to those locations in 6-8 min.
Facing the apt, there is a community garden with large trees. There's a 24-hour convenience store 2 min from the apt.
It's a huge apt with high ceiling in Tokyo/NY standards. I'm certain you will enjoy your stay here.
Great location and friendly host!!
We enjoyed our stay in Japan:)
We stayed at Aika's for 4 days in Tokyo. Her place worked out perfectly! The neighborhood is quite lovely, with great and easy access to trains or buses if you want to travel outside the area.
We didn't see her a ton as we were gone much of the day and crashed hard at night, but she offered great suggestions for exploring the sights!
Aika is the nicest host! Shares her home like it's yours! Promptly responding my texts, even enquired for me while I was stuck at the airport. Her flat is very nice, perfect location in a charming quiet aera. I recommend it many times!
Aika's apartment was awesome. It is super close to heaps of awesome towns - Harajuku, Shibuya, Akihabara, Shinjuku, Shimokitazawa. It's also really spacious, cosy and clean. The bed I slept in was super cosy and warm and the portable wi-fi thingie that I rented from Aika was really useful. I would definitely stay at Aika's place again the next time I'm in Tokyo.
We didn't expect that such spacious apartments existed in Tokyo, until staying at this apartment! The bed was extremely comfortable and the whole apartment was very clean. Aika even cleared out half of the closet in the bedroom for us to use. Aika is a chill and helpful hostess and provided us with detailed directions to her apartment.
Thanks for the comfortable stay, Aika!
시부야 역이랑 가까운 곳에 이렇게 조용하고 예쁜 동네가 있는 줄은 몰랐어요! 주인 언니도 정말로 친절했고, 집 컨디션도 매우 좋았어요. 다음에 도쿄에 올 일이 있다면 이 집에 다시 묵고 싶어요!
Aika lives in a awesome apartment in a beautiful neighbourhood in Tokyo. The room is huge, the bed is super comfy, the shower is hot, the location is good & the kitchen perfect. Aika herself is a very friendly, accommodating, cool & helpful host. She's knowledgable about Tokyo from a native as well as foreign perspective which is really interesting. I really regret not having spent more time with her during our stay but truly appreciate her positive impact on our trip to Tokyo. Highly recommended :)
We didn't get to meet Aika, but she left us clear instructions on how to find the key and enter the apartment. The apartment was nice and the bedroom was indeed big! Another nice thing was that she offered us the use of her portable wifi, it came in handy while exploring the city and walking around...
The apartment is in a quiet neighborhood and we walked to Shibuya most days. It's quite a walk, but a good way to start and end the day!
Our stay at Aika's apartment in Shibuya was awesome! The residence was exactly as described. It's in a great location with easy access to the bus and subway. Aika is an amazing host. If you're fortunate to have her around during your stay she is extremely friendly and helpful. We were so glad to have gotten to know her. We would definitely stay here again!
Aikas place perfectly located and she provided everything we needed! Just 1-2 min walk to a bus which drops you right outside Shibuya Station, a 25 min walk to the very cool back streets of Shibuya and Omotesando. Aika wasn't home much but she is pretty chilled out and happy to answer any questions we had for her. Her place is in a quiet and nice neighbourhood. She let us hire her portable Wifi device which was super helpful! The apartment itself is Huge! It’s clean and very comfortable. There are convenience stores nearby and it is quite cheap to get a taxi back to her place from Shibuya late at night. We would recommend her to anyone visiting Tokyo!
