~~~ AREA ~~~
~~~NAKANO~~~

The people around here are so friendly and helpful!!! It doesn't seem like the city yet it is so close to Shinjuku. You have everything you need nearby and the quaintness of all the old school mom and pop stores still survive here!! There is a supermarket a minute away and you could walk to Shinjuku in 30 minutes if you wanted to. Staying around here for a week or so is to experience living in Japan for that same amount of time. I have many friends who love living in this area!! I highly recommend it.

The apartment is located at the quite area and very near to train station which is about a 2 minute walk. The apartment has two bedrooms that can accommodate 5 persons maximum in my own opinion. Will and his team is quick to respond to my queries.

Will and his Airbnb apartment was a lifesaver for our family. Because we were on airline standby status, most hotels for 5 people in Tokyo area were sold out and if the hotels were available, it was double or triple the cost. Will was a great communicator and his instant instructions on how to get to the apartment was easy to follow and he provides a instructional video as well and it was a big help. Pros: *Accommodated enough beds for our family of 5 *The weather was really cold and rainy, at about 50 degrees so the house heater was great. *The kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms, floors were clean *The kitchen has most cooking equipment, if you want to make your own meals. *great location, few minutes of walking distance to the nearest station *3 stops away from Shinjuku Station Cons: *There were no light in the entrance into the building. When we arrived 8pm at night, we had difficulty navigating in the dark and up the stairwell. *The bed mattresses were firm/hard. *The pillowcases, bed linen and comforters did not smell fresh and I was unsure if it was washed but I hope it was. I would recommend this place.

This apartment has a good location and is a decent size for four travellers. However, Will's customer service with us was very poor. On the eve of our arrival we followed his instructions to find and gain access to the apartment. However, we could not get in. The code for the door lock would not release the key. When we rang Will for his help he was disrespectful, insisting we were at fault, and unhelpful. He eventually discovered the code had been changed, but still did not take responsibility for the situation.

Will was responsive to my inquiries and the location of the house was very convenient. We had problems with the portable Wi-Fi and wasn't able to use it. Overall, it was a pleasant stay and value for money.

Thanks so much for booking my place Tracy. I'm glad you loved the really convenient location here! Regarding the pocket wifi, I always advise my guests to please make sure to read their itinerary details and to check the house manual for the wifi ID and password since I can 100% guarantee that it works well and has a high-speed connection, as long as the correct ID and password are typed in.

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!
