You might see on the map that there is a freeway/highway behind the building but you can't hardly hear it. The balcony faces the opposite side and has a descent view of the city!! The apartment is very quiet and peaceful. This is due to the fact that many of the units here are used as offices ( though they are truly apartments ) during the stay so few people live in the building.

Wonderful stay at Will's! Great communicator and awesome location. Would absolutely recommend!
The host has been great in responding to our questions and inquiries. He also provided great detailed information to help us get around.
However, the place we stay at could use a bit more TLC. It would make our experience so much more satisfying.
A perfekt Place to discover Tokio , and will is a very Nice host who helped us at any Time!
Thanks a lot !!! Bye Till next time in Tokio :-) Petra
Staying with Will is highly recommended! The place was easy to find thanks to Wills clear instructions. Questions via E-Mail were answered by Will within minutes. The house itself was very clean and the location convenient. Great experience and many thanks!
Staying at the Ginza flat has been great, it was easy to find and Will was very helpful and accessible. The flat was clean and it really has everything you need. I particularly appreciated the portable wifi, the balcony, the peace and quiet and being within walking distance to so many places. A perfect little home away from home. Thanks Will.
Will was very responsive and provided very long, but comprehensive instructions and directions. Neighborhood was very nice, near to the shopping areas of Ginza.
Will was very good at communicating. The apartment was a bit run down with wall paper falling off the wall. It is very small, we were a family of four and it really was too small for us.
Thank you Catherine. We noticed the humidity in the summer made the wallpaper by the air conditioner start to peal off. We will definitely get this corrected as soon as we get some empty days between guests to take care of it. I appreciate you notifying us of this. Thanks so much. I also agree that this place is a bit small for 4 people but definitely doable. I would recommend 2 or 3 if you need lots of space.

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!
