Please Note - This is not a hotel room it is my house.
Located in Shinjuku-ku you can walk to the station( JR YAMANOTE LINE) in literally 1 minute. From this station it is super easy and quick to get to SHIBUYA, SHINJUKU, HARAJUKU, IKEBUKURO, UENO, EBISU. All within 1-15 MINS of each other
A very Sunny apartment that catches beautiful light at Dawn, in the centre of metropolis Tokyo. This apartment is located in a prime location. Dozens of restaurants are located all within a small walking distance, this area is famous for Japanese IZAKAYA'S
(Japanese pubs/restaurants) also great Ramen shops/ noodles nearby. Not far from the building is also a river, and during Sakura season cherry blossom trees can be seen. The building is located above a VERY good supermarket which makes groceries very easy and convenient.
It's rare for an apartment this size to be this close to trasport especially the JR Yamanote line. It's not huge but a good size for 'TOKYO STANDARDS'.
This apartment can sleep up to 5 people, It has a double futon for 2 people and a Pull out sofa bed for 1-2 people (Very good quality sofa bed) I also have 2 single futons in case of an extra 1 or 2 people or if one would prefer more privacy.
The apartment is good for single stays, couples, and families with children.
•The Apartment has a big roof where you can watch the sunrise/sunset and on clear days you can see the beautiful Mt FUJI.
• The 2 bedrooms are on the south side of the apartment, with traditional Japanese sliding doors that open up to large windows in the kitchen.The flooring is Traditional Japanese Tatami.
• Equipped kitchen, A stove, microwave, fridge/freezer, grill/toaster and clean utensils.
• Shower and bath tub ( Bath tub is Japanese size and old style so not large and very basic) with a separate toliet.
• Wireless internet
Buses stop right outside the train station which can take you towards SHIBUYA. Though just hoping on the train is definitely the quickest and easiest!
From this apartment on the train you can reach these places in:
** Landing In NARITA or HANEDA**
If landing in NARITA then the quickest way to reach this apartment is the SKYLINER to NIPPORI (36mins) and then the JR Yamanote line to TAKADANOBABA (14min). Overall time approx 1HR.
If landing in HANEDA then the quickest way is to catch the TOKYO mono rail to HAMAMATSUCHO (20min) and then the JR YAMANOTE line to TAKADANOBABA (19min). Overall time approx 1 HR.
*Shinagawa has direct access to the Shinkansen ( Bullet Train) which can take you to places such as OSAKA, KYOTO, HIROSHIMA, NAGASAKI.
The JR YAMANOTE line is the fastest and most convenient train line for central attractions and locations.
**Recommendations or Guidance**
In the apartment you can find a Tokyo guide book, I have lived here for over 3 years an can recommend you places to see and eat!
I like to think im a good host :) and always there if you need some help or advice on the city!
My goal is for you to enjoy your stay to the fullest! :)
The apartment is very safe and the residents are generally also very sweet and elderly. I show them a lot of respect and they are very welcoming to foreigners.
NOTE: What really makes this apartment great is just how close the station is! Its very rare to be within 1 min of the JR Yamanote line. Its great! :0
Please check my GUIDEBOOK for great little places all in walking distances of the apartment.
** Washer/Dryer is a 3 minute walk from the house, not far. If in desperate need I also have a washer in my house in the same apartment block! :)
**LAST BUT NOT LEAST
If you are looking into a Long stay (1 month or more) I can offer a monthly rate.
•The residents of the building are very kind and mostly elder people so low noise and relaxed/chilled activities are preferable.
•Please follow the Recyclable garbage separation, as this is very important in Japan. (MUST)
•Please take shoes off at the entrance
•Please leave suitcases on the wood floor NOT TATAMI mats, as they are easily damaged.
Respect it as if it was your own home :)
And more than anything please have a wonderful stay in this place and in this amazing city!
Nico is a great host. Quick to respond and very accommodating. The apartment is in a great location, just a few min walk from the station and surrounded by grocery store, convenient stores, and delicious restaurants. I recommend Nico's apartment for a couple of small family looking for a local experience.
Absolutely fab for our four days in Tokyo. Nico's flat was clean, comfortable and perfectly located. Nico was also super helpful and accommodating. Highly recommend.
Nico is a really nice guy and very helpful and his apartment is awesome! Great location and very spacious (which is rare in Tokyo). I would highly recommend his place and him as a host.
Great place to stay thanks nico. Interesting area which we wished we had time to explore! Lots of good options for food and good kick off point to explore Tokyo. Big apartment and great view from the roof.
Great location. So close to everything. Apartment was not great for cooking so decided to eat out most of the time. Was handy having supermarket below for breakfast stuff and snacks. Nico was very quick to respond to any requests even though he was busy with his first newborn
We had a great stay at Nico's apartment. It was very easy to find and super close to the train station, which was a big bonus. All my emails with Nico were quickly answered and Nico was really friendly and easy to deal with. The apartment is compact (for Australian standards), but we slept our family of 5 there pretty comfortably. We didn't do any real cooking in the apartment but there are plenty of good eating options nearby and as with all of Japan, food is very cheap and of a good quality. We did use the supermarket underneath the apartment for breakfast supplies and it was a good option, with everything we needed. I'd definitely recommend Nico's place for a 'city stay', right in the middle of everything and easy to reach. Thanks Nico!
good location and easy access to the city. the apt was spacious and safe. it is a little bare on basic ammenities/toiletries that should be provided (soap/towels) but Nico did his best to accommodate us.
