Our home is light and bright, and has a really unique set up with vaulted ceilings! We absolutely love the large skylight window that lets in tons of natural light and nice breezes :)
You will be hard pressed to find another apartment like this in Tokyo. The loft fits 3 people comfortably, as there is a double bed in the loft area and the third person can sleep on the cozy couch. We’ve had some guests who roll out a futon for a 4th person, but you might find it to be a tight fit.
This is a private apartment and your home away from home. It comes fully equipped with everything you will need during your stay, including freshly pressed towels, body wash, shampoo & hair conditioner, hair dryer, and an iron. And best of all, we will be providing you with free use of a portable pocket Wi-Fi device that you can use in the apartment and while sightseeing around Tokyo!

Shimokitazawa is one of Tokyo’s best-kept secrets! Located just 5 minutes from Shibuya and 8 minutes from Shinjuku, the neighborhood has a relaxed feel, and is a popular place for hip Japanese youth and music lovers. It is the place to be if you like the arts, independent music clubs, trendy Japanese boutiques, cozy cafes, and delicious Japanese restaurants. Don’t take our word for it- read our guest reviews to learn about why you will instantly fall in love with this neighborhood!
From Narita or Haneda Airport, the quickest option is to take a bus, which will drop you off right next to Shibuya Station. From there, you can board the Inokashira Train one stop to Shimokitazawa Station. After you make a reservation, we will email you very detailed step-by-step directions so that you can check into the apartment easily.
Other Things to Note
Unfortunately, we cannot allow any children younger than 5 years old. Thank you for your understanding.
The following two issues are critically important for you to follow during your stay at the apartment:
Noise - The apartment is very quiet and our neighbors value the peaceful harmonious living that is synonymous with being in Japan. Please refrain from talking loudly near or in the apartment. Especially in the evenings, please keep noise to a minimum.
Trash - The separation of trash and recyclables is very strict in Japan. Please follow the instructions we have provided for you in the apartment for how to properly separate and dispose of the following 4 categories into 4 separate bags:
1. General/Combustible Garbage
2. Plastic Bottles
3. Glass Bottles
We are responsible for our guests staying at the apartment so if there are any noise or garbage violations, we are liable to receive a roughly 100 USD fine (10,000 Japanese yen) for each offense and also run the risk of getting evicted when repeat violations occur.
Please ensure you follow all of these rules while in Japan and if you have any questions about the above, please don't hesitate to ask us for further clarification.
Thank you once again for booking with us and we hope that you have a wonderful stay in Tokyo!
I can highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay in a cozy appartment located in a laid-back, friendly but still vibrant neighborhood. Jay&Dee took grate care in providing super-detailed information and making my stay a very pleasant and relaxed stay in Tokio.
Clean upon arrival. Great location. Small space, but just what we needed for two adults and a child. Would stay here again.
I had an amazing time here! The neighbourhood was fantastic with lots of little shops and cafe's. The appartment was nice and clean with clear direction how to get there. The bath was an amazing adition to a great place!
Not knowing what to expect of Japanese flat living space I was surprised how small is small.
I was a family of myself and two teenage children. I choose here as I wanted to cook. The kitchen area isn't really there to be used on a full time basis nor is the seating area for us to all eat comfortably. If u want to prepare the occasional pot noodle then it's OK.
Nor is there 3 beds. There's a small double on the upper floor. The other bed is a padded mat on the floor by the sofa.
The location is a nice quiet residential area within a 15 min walk to the nearest metro/JR Line station.
The comms were fine.
Would I stay again...only for a 2-4 day stay only. Was too long for 10.
The apartment is small but has all of the necessities covered and the loft area is very nice. Free Wi-fi really came in handy.
Absolutely loved the Shimokitazawa area and all of the bars and restaurants.
Me and My boyfriend stayed here for a week. It was easy to find the apartment thanks to the clear instructions that was provided. We never met our host in person, but they kept in touch during our stay to see that we were ok. The pocket wi-fi was very helpful.
The apartment was very nice and true to the description. We loved the Shimokitazawa neighbourhood and would definetely stay here again next time in Tokyo!
Loved the neighborhood around Shimokatizawa station. Cool vintage clothing shops, cool people and a bit more relaxed than in other parts of town. The apartment looked as in the pictures, and we think that it was great for the price.
