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 (email hidden) 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!

People who have been to Tokyo before know this is the place to stay. If you don't reserve here, you will wish you had and you will the second time you come to Tokyo. This room may look small but it has been remodeled and is really nice. Besides, this room is all about the location!

  • Will's was the first place I stayed in Tokyo, as a matter of fact the first place I stayed outside of the US! It's a crazy city, and Will's clear tips and directions made wading into Tokyo much easier. I stayed in Shibuya for 4 nights during the week. It's in a very central location just a couple blocks from Shibuya Station. Right in the heart of the action. The bed is comfortable and the shower gets nice and hot!

    March 2014
  • Will's flat is very clean and neat,the size is good enough for two of us. location is wonderful,it is very close to shopping areas and with many restaurants around,it is very convinent. we would like to stay there again if we vo tokyo next time.thanks so much.

    March 2014
  • This place is awesome. Absolutely a great location. The host Will was spot on with instructions and provide everything we needed. This was the first time trying Airbnb and I'm sold. Just try it and you'll be hooked and if in Japan book with Will, I just cannot stop talking how great this place was.

    March 2014
  • This place is fantastic. It's clean, comfortable, and the views are pretty nice. The location puts you right in the middle of Shibuya, steps away from Center-gai which leads right down to the famous scramble crossing. With literally hundreds of bars, restaurants, clubs, and shopping outlets, the location is pretty unbeatable. Also Will really makes your stay as painless as possible. He is organized right from the get go and provides well thought out, top notch instructions for Tokyo newbies like myself.

    The best part about this place is the host. When I ran into some mitigating circumstances and was forced to delay my arrival by a few days, Will was very understanding, accommodating and flexible, very quick to respond to messages, and let me stay a bit longer for a discounted rate. Thanks again Will!

    Response from Will:

    Babak was an awesome guest with great communication skills! Since the calendar and availability allowed it, I was happy to help him with his schedule change! Thanks for your kind words! Hope you can come back again Babak!

  • Fantastic location, especially for a first visit to Tokyo, with clear and precise directions. I stayed solo and felt very safe doing so, but 2-3 adults could fit in fine, given there is so much to do on your doorstep you probably won't be spending that much time there. Thanks Will!

    March 2014
  • Will's apartment is a great place to stay in the middle of it all. Shibuya has it all as a location to stay in Tokyo and this apartment is convenient to lots of great places to eat, drink, shop, or otherwise enjoy. It is very neat, clean and well organized with plenty of the basics that you need. Great for one person, as I was, but I could see two or three people getting along just fine here. I had a wonderful experience. Thanks, Will!

    February 2014
  • Everything was per the pictures. The location was excellent and so were all of Will's comprehensive directions. I would definitely recommend the studio for a handy and economical option in Shibuya.

    February 2014
  • Excellent location a few minutes from Shibuya Station and in the heart (email hidden)ly district full of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. The apartment is small, fine for the two of us but would be a tight squeeze for 3 adults. It has everything you need. The wifi router you can take out with you is great - avoids getting hopelessly lost and you can check opening times and locations. We had a fantastic time in Tokyo. The host responded very fast to a question I had during our stay.

    January 2014
  • Will's place is great! Location is the best if you'd like to enjoy the famous Shibuya night life!

    Room is accurate as in pictures. Restroom is quite small but typical Tokyo. Note that sometime, particularly evening, there is smells of cigarette in the room, perhaps leaked from next rooms.

    Overall, I very satisfied with Will's place and definitely will come back to it again if I have a chance.

About
I love Tokyo. This place is just indescribably cool. You can stay up all night and find whatever you want, whenever you want. Not only that, I have never felt unsafe here no matter where I was. I guess you will just have to come here and find out for yourself about how awesome this city is!! I have been in Tokyo about 5 years now and there is so much to do that you can never get bored. Also, it's not as expensive as everyone might think. There are definitely cheap places around to eat and drink!!! And ALL the restaurants here are good. I love sports of any kind, keeping busy, and laughing. I also really enjoying spending time with my friends. We eat out, drink, dance, play billiards, darts, and sing karaoke. I love meeting new people too. Nothing like sharing some good stories from around the globe. I am not fluent in Japanese but I'm getting better and usually can get what is needed on my own. I like to enjoy life and live in the moment so I'm pretty easygoing. I have a flexible schedule and still do some teaching here on occasion. I am really getting into this Airbnb thing so I am keeping pretty busy but I will do my best to help you with what you need. Any questions? Any at all, feel free to ask. Finally, It is my goal that people have an awesome, relaxed, and stress free vacation so I hope you choose to stay with me!! I may be easygoing but I am serious about business and relationships. I will make sure that your accommodation here is comfortable and you have what you need. I do have a support network here to help me as well. I now have over 15 places to choose from in all parts of the city so check them out and let me know which place you like best!!! Hope to hear from you soon!!
