BEST LOCATION in SHIBUYA by far!!!
This is your OWN private apartment in Shibuya. The most popular place in town for all the locals, especially young, but old too. Walking through Shibuya is hands down the most UNFORGETTABLE experience in Tokyo. I must go here at least 3 times a week, usually more!
As you can see on map view here on AIRBNB, this is one of 2 apartments I have in the same building that is in the CENTER of SHIBUYA. NOT up the hill (terrible walk with your suitcase) on the way out of Shibuya like the cluster of apartments west. This apartment is actually in the center of all the action ( 6 minute walk to Shibuya station ) and as easy 10 minute walk to HARAJUKU or YOYOGI PARK!
You can find so much to do nearby to do that you probably won't even need a train for a few of the days you stay here. If you want to stay out LATE, this is definitely the place to stay!! You are less than 5 minutes walk from at least 10 NIGHTCLUBS with a famous DJ playing almost every night of the week somewhere. There is definitely a place to go every night! You like restaurants? You can find everything in Shibuya!

Location was fantastic and easy to find, within walking distance to the Shibuya station and good area to be in for shopping and nightlife.
Apartment is clean and definitely larger than most hotel rooms in the Shibuya area.
Pocket Wifi was a great added bonus
Très bon emplacement dans un des quartiers des plus animés de Tokyo. Seulement à 7 min à pied de la gare de Shibuya, très facile d'accès et le cadenas sur la porte et le pocket Wifi sont un plus non négligable dans une ville comme Tokyo.
Pour 3 personnes il y a juste la place de mettre les lits Idéal pour une ou deux personnes. Par contre le logement n'était pas très bien nettoyé, il y avait de la poussière sur les meubles.
Je recommande cette adresse tout de même car très bien situé et facile d'accès. La salle de bain à même une baignoire. Ce qui est décrit dans l'annonce correspond à ce que j'ai loué.
Merci à Will pour son accueuil.
Will's place is indeed very near Shibuya. Finding the place was a breeze thanks to the direction he has provided. From the unit, you can easily navigate your way back to the Shibuya station. The place was clean and the utensils and toiletries are complete. The pocket wifi was definitely a plus making it easy to look for places of interest. Overall it was a pleasant experience for us. We will definitely be staying here on our next visit to Tokyo. Thank you very much Will!
This is a great little apartment in the perfect location, right in the heart of the exciting area of Shibuya. Will makes the experience effortless with little touches such as the key lock and the WiFi router which mean you waste no time and can start your adventure straight away. The apartment is certainly compact by international standards, but it has everything you need for a great stay. Will's communication throughout the process was excellent. Thanks for a great experience.
As the other reviews state, the location of the unit can't really be beat. Very central to Shibuya with lots of stuff to do within walking distance and easy access to the rest of Tokyo via rail. Will's directions were very precise and spot on, which is important as it would be a bit difficult to find otherwise. The unit is definitely Tokyo-sized though-- fitting four adults in there would be all but impossible. Will was very responsive and helpful throughout our trip.

About the Host, Will
Nice to meet you. My name is Will. I love hosting on airbnb and it is my life. It is tons of fun and there are new surprises every day! I have met so many interesting people as a host and I look forward to those I will meet in the future.
I am a sports fan, reader, movie goer, and I like to try new things. I play golf, basketball, and just about any sport you can think of. I love ramen, yakiniku, yakitori, and shabu shabu here in Japan. I love to try pizza all over the world when I travel.
Relationships are the most important thing for me in my personal life as well as business. I like to go out and have a good time with my friends and meet new people.
I have learned so much from my over three years as an airbnb host and I am pleased to say I have most questions answered for you before you ask them, whether it be in the description of the listing or in the detail I supply you with at confirmation. Still, I am always thinking of ways to make the guest experience more comfortable, efficient, and hassle free. This is my goal as a host. I will continue to get more places every month so I can host more travelers. I want everyone to see Tokyo at least once!
Tokyo is a great place to come and people from all over the world visit here making it a truly international city. I love Tokyo and seeing the amazing sights and people. It is a great place to explore and every day can be different. This is an awesome destination for walkers and wanders filled with friendly people, tasty restaurants, and plenty of lights. My tip is to make the initial contact with Japanese people because they are typically shy at first. They will be happy to try to practice their English with you.
Hope I can host you soon! May your trip to Tokyo be as amazing as my 7 years here has been!
