The Space



NAKANO SHIMBASHIi-- Only 1 minute walk away!!
In NAKANO city, just 3 stops by train to Shinjuku!!
On the TOKYO METRO MARUNOCHI Line, one of the 3 original lines in Tokyo so it goes directly to many major stations.
This is a great place to stay so close to Shinjuku but in a nice Japanese residential neighborhood with a supermarket and everything else you need nearby. Many guests have actually walked to Shinjuku in a half hour it is so close!


This unit has 2 bedrooms with a sliding door in the middle so it can become one big room. It has a washing machine and balcony to dry clothes ( also coin dryers are 1 minute walk away. The toilet and shower are separate which is a luxury in Japan. The shower is quite big and has a bath as well. It is equipped with a full kitchen and 2 foldable tables and chairs. There is a huge desk if you need to do some work and a nice sofa with a coffee table as well. It is possible to have 6 beds made up and maybe 7 people could stay if some of them were small children.


The people around here are so friendly and helpful!!! It doesn't seem like the city yet it is so close. You have everything you need nearby and the quaintness of all the old school mom and pop stores still survive here!! 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!

Stay CONNECTED when you are roaming about in TOKYO!!
May not have these in your country but they are AWESOME!
You will be able to take this small device around Tokyo and be connected to the internet via your smart phone, laptop, etc. Makes exploring so much easier!!
No need to pay ¥1000/$10 a day to rent from the airport!!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We stayed 3 days in this apartment and our party was 3 people.

    We enjoyed and satisfied most of our staying.
    Transportation was good and the house was roomy and well equipped.
    Neighborhood was really nice. If you want to experience like living in average small town in Japan, this is the place for you.

    It was really the best choice for the price I paid. (But it seems rates go up since it is peak season now. So please consider.)

    There were few miner problems, such as smell of air conditioner, but Will, the host was very responsive and said would take care of, I believe it won't be problems.

    We definitely want to stay in this apartment again next time we visit Japan!

    Response from Will:

    Sue was an awesome guest. She was clean and all that good stuff. She was even kind enough to give me a few tips. We improved a few small things and had the air conditioner cleaned due to her info. Appreciate it and welcome back anytime!!

    June 2014
  • It was a pleasure having Will to host us. He responded to our queries promptly and was very approachable.

    The apartment was in pristine condition upon our arrival. Will has kindly laid out the mattress and beds for us. The kitchen, bathroom and toilet were clean and well-stocked with what we might have needed. The house was in good shape.

    It didn't take us long to locate the apartment from Nakano-shimbashi metro station as Will left us with clear directions to get there. The neighbourhood was peaceful.

    The house manual that Will left for us in the apartment was useful. It contained information on sorting out our trash and also the pocket Wi-fi. We had Wi-fi everywhere we went all thanks to Will! :)

    Getting to anywhere from the apartment is a breeze. Our stay in Tokyo was made so much more enjoyable because of that. We highly recommend this place!

    Once again, thank you Will for the pleasant accommodation experience!

  • The apartment is exactly what we had expected. The only lack is the limited space if you plan to stay in group of more than 5. There were 7 of us in the apartment including 3 children. But we did not mind since the rate is quite reasonable. The location is good as it is just a walking distance to Nakano Shimbashi station.

    June 2014
  • Location was quite a convenient. Room was rather small but could fit 6 of us well. Everything was well set up when we reached there. One bad point is that the beds were kinda dusty. Overall, it was quite a decent stay.

    May 2014
    Response from Will:

    Rachel never mentioned any concerns during her stay. I was surprised to hear " the beds were kinda dusty " in her review. I contacted her for more information on this but she never replied so I could not be sure of her concern. However, I had the cleaners do some extra dusting and cleaning to make sure!

  • Will was a great host and very responsive to my questions. His place is nice and cozy. Pictures are accurate and the mobile wifi is amazing! He had beds ready for me and my family and everything was as advertised. His place is located really close to a train station and it was really easy getting around. This was my first Airbnb trial and Will made it a great experience! Thanks Will!

  • This place was so niceeee it comfy and near the station. We can get to shinjuku easily !! It's was small but 7 people can be there !!

    March 2014
  • This was a very nice and quiet place to stay. We were three persons staying in this flat for one week, but it could comfortably fit four.
    It is located in a quiet residential area with plenty of cozy Japanese restaurants and a metro station close by. Will was a great host and answered us quickly upon all our requests. The pocket wifi that was provided was a real lifesaver! I really recommend this place and would definitely stay there again.
    Thanks Will!

    March 2014
  • We came with a group of seven. The appartment was packed as we expected, but it's in nice shape and had all we needed.

    February 2014
  • It was best ever place to stay in Toyko. I rented Will's house for 2 days with 4 guys, and had a great time because normally I stayed hotel(double beds for 2 people) to visit international exhibition. We cooked Japanese food together and had memorable time. Next time whatever I go and stay, I will try to rent one like will's house, cheap and (email hidden)-tto Will Sang. ^^~

    January 2014
  • Will's place is conveniently located near a train station that can get you into the heart of Tokyo in about 5 mins, yet the area isn't too busy or loud. The apartment is great and Will is very helpful, I would recommend Will and his place

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 7 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 delicious. You don't need a recommendation really as it any place you walk into will be 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 am a full time airbnb host. I now have over 35 listings and just love it! 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. Finally, It is my goal that people have an awesome, relaxed, and stress free vacation so I hope you choose to stay with me at one of my places!! 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. You can view all of our listings from my profile page by clicking on 'View all listings' blue button in the lower left hand corner. Hope to hear from you soon!!
