The flat is one bedroom with a sofa set, double bed (140cm width), a dining set, and fully equipped kitchen. Lots of storage and separate bath and toilet. The flat is on the 8th floor and is a part of 12th floor luxurious apartment. The apartment was built in the 1970s but has gone through extensive earthquake reinforcement work recently. You can walk to famous Shibuya crossing in 7 minutes and Daikanyama in 13 minutes. Trendy Nakamueguro is also 10 minutes walk away. There are unbelievable number of cafes, restaurants, theaters, clubs, bars, bookstores (including famous Daikanyama T-site in 10 minutes), music venues, public fitness gym and swimming pool, clothing and lifestyle stores, and of course 24 hours convenience stores. Despite its proximity to trendy areas, the apartment is in quiet and upscale residential area (two former prime ministers, Sony founder, a Kabuki star and an Oscar winning actor all reside within three minutes!). This has to be one of the most superbly located aribnb flats in Tokyo!
ABOUT THE HOST
I'm Japanese and I am splitting my time between London and Tokyo for work. This flat has been my occasional Tokyo pad but I have renovated the flat to a high standard with antique and designer furnitures and kept it spotless clean. Now that I spend more and more time in London I have decided to put my beloved flat on AirBnB. I truly believe this is one of the most charming flats available on Airbnb in the most desirable address in Tokyo.
I hope you enjoy your stay in my flat and Tokyo as much as I have enjoyed it!

Shinji's apartment was perfect for us. It was bright, clean, quiet and nicely decorated. Everything we needed was there, including instructions on how to use the electric equipment.
The location was just what we were looking for, with Shibuya, Daikanyama and Nakameguro within short walking distance.
Shinji himself was a pleasure to be in contact with - always friendly, helpful and quick with replies. We didn't meet him in person, but both checking in and out went smooth and easy.
We will definitely stay here the next time we're in Tokyo.
This place is amazing and highly recommendable! We immediately felt at home the second we arrived. Easy to get to from both Narita and Haneda airport. Situated in a quiet upscale area and still super close to Shibuya station. There is a convenience store about one minute walking from the apartment. Check in went smoothly, we were especially happy that Shinji let us check in a couple hours before check in time, thanks for that! We were welcomed by his friend Mika, who speaks fluent english and was so kind to show us around the place.
The apartment is very nicely decorated and has a pretty cool view from the balcony. It was very clean and spacious, the bed was really comfortable, we slept like babies! We had everything we needed right there, from a microwave oven to a hair straightener. A great first-time airbnb experience!
Shinji is a great host, very professional, friendly and kind, and responded quickly to our questions. Thanks so much for an incredible time Shinji and Mika, we hope to come back some day!
L'appartement de Shinji était parfait.
Propre, spacieux, central et bien aménagé.
Bien que nous n'ayons jamais rencontré Shinji, celui-ci est facilement joignable et réponds rapidement aux éventuelles questions.
Le rapport qualité/prix est excellent.
Je recommande vivement un séjour au sein de cet appartement.
Shinji´s apartment was a nice stay in Tokyo. Very close to Shibuya, but in a quiet neighborhood, it´s a perfect place to move around the city, also close to other trendy spots (Nakameguro, Daikanyama).
The apartment is fully equipped, very bright and perfect for a couple, with a nice bed and comfy sofa. We loved the air conditioning in both kitchen and room during our hot stay in August.
Definetely a recommended place to rest, Shinji is a great host to communicate to, responding fast and kindly.
My partner and I loved this place. We spent a week here at the end of a one month trip in Japan, and we couldn't have made a better choice. For starters, the apartment's decor is super cool - just like in the pictures. The location is as described and has you a few minutes walk from the craziness of the Shibuya Station/Crossing and surrounds, or the super trendy suburb of Daikanyama on the other. Communication with Shinji was great and check-in was easy. And Shinji, thanks so much for allowing us to check out late at late notice. Thanks for an awesome stay. We highly recommend your apartment.
A lovely little apartment with small balcony, very close to central Shibuya. Nice furniture and importantly, fully functional air conditioning. Wonderful location in a nice, very quiet block in a quiet and clean residential area. Very close to convenience store. Shinji was a great host - he met us in a local hotel and showed us the way to the flat, and was on call to recommend local restaurants. Highly recommended.
We stayed for one week in Shinji's apartment. It was very comfortable, and had everything that we needed. It was only a 10 minute walk to central Shibuya, and had a bus stop only around the corner for when we had luggage. It was great to have a place in Japan that felt so "homely" compared to the business hotels. Thanks to Shinji and Mika for making it happen so easily.
