We had a great trip. The apartment is beautiful, spacious, and perfectly situated. Will was super helpful. He made sure we knew how to get to the apartment from the airport, and left clear instructions for recycling/trash disposal and all the other little things a first-time traveller to Japan needs to be aware of. We'll be back!
Will was quick to respond right from the start. Our international flight arrived early in the morning but he had the apartment ready for us to check in early in the day. His detailed instructions were extremely helpful as if he considered the fact that both jet lag and cultural disorientation will cause a simple sense of confusion.
The place is spacious and clean, and good food can be found close by. It is close to subway stations and he even has a few books and maps of Tokyo on the shelves. This is exactly what we were looking for! We were very comfortable and happy with having Will as our host! This met my expectations of AirBnB plus more- he went above and beyond in his role as host.
Great and seamless experience!
Will promptly provided directions, checkin details, and everything else we needed to know. Accommodations were clean and provided plenty of space. Plenty of toiletries and towels were included. Washer and dryer worked. The apartment was easy to find. It's a quick walk to Roppongi. I'd definitely stay again.
Host communication was excellent. Host intro info (guide etc) is overwhelming, but most/all the information you need is there, just takes a while to digest it. The host must have had some bad experiences, but we did just fine.
The home is not ultra-luxurious, but is nice-enough and well appointed with the little things you'd need to have breakfast or cook a meal (though we did not). 2BR / 2BA in this location for this price is great. I would stay again if I wanted a 2BR in a local Tokyo neighborhood.
I booked this for a group of 3, and the apartment is just as described....it fit the need perfectly. Great location, full of helpful tools for Tokyo, especially the Portable Wi-Fi, a real life-saver when you are on the go! Furniture is very comfortable....entire apartment is well equipped. The bathroom is small, so if you have a group of more than 4, consider that. Will is a very professional and welcoming host. He has been doing this for some years, and has excellent properties. Do read his instructions, he is exact and precise in his instructions. Check-in/check-out is a breeze, even late at night. Will responds quickly to any inquiries and messages. We highly recommend him. This address can be hard to find, so pay attention to his recommendations! He gave us a great source of restaurants, too.

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!
