The Space

Very sunny and cozy 30m2 apartment in central Tokyo.
It is located in Meidaimae - just few minutes by train to Shibuya and Shinjuku and Kichijoji.
Also it is just two stops away from fancy and trendy Shimokitazawa.
Meidaimae station is located just 5 minutes walk from the apartment.
The apartment is fully furnished, with semi-double bed, sofa, fridge, washing machine, flat TV, microwave, rice cooker, vacuum cleaner, great lightning, WiFi internet and fantastic view!
I also improved the apartment with a dining table and a couple of chairs - now you can have meals at home or just use it for study.
It is located on the 9th floor in a concrete building. It is very quiet apartment with a lot of sunlight. It base two big windows which are facing south direction.
Plenty of small, cozy and cheap restaurants. Supermarkets and convenience stores located within 3 minute walk.
Huge plus of this place is that it has it own garbage space so you can throw away your rubbish anytime you like (which is very unusual in Japan)
The place is perfect for couples or single travellers.

Please contact me via email and I will be happy to explain more in details. Thank you!

  • We stayed here for three months and the location is simply perfect: it’s only 5 minutes from Meidaimae station which has direct connections to Shinjuku, Shibuya, Shimokitazawa and Kichijoji. It’s a perfect location if you want to be in a calmer place than the ruckus of Shunjuku/Shibuya.

    The neighborhood is super nice (especially if you happen to have a bike) and there are convenience shops (open 24/7), a small supermarket and several restaurant and ramen-ya nearby.

    The apartment was clean and everything was as advertised. Wifi worked perfectly, the view is simply gorgeous, it’s a sunny place when there’s sun, there’s all the equipment you need in the kitchen, the washing machine is a very useful for a longer stay, the AC is very handy in summer and there’s lots of storage space. Last but not least: garbage disposal is Japan is a fairly obtuse thing but the disposal area in the building makes it a lot easier!
    On top of that Christian has been very helpful all along our stay and helped us with any questions or requirements we had (both related to the apartment and not). We met by chance a couple of times (!) and he’s a very nice fellow!

    There are a few details that you may want to consider when planning a longer stay in this apartment. The bed is only 120cm. Fortunately there is a futon-like mattress which makes it possible to sleep comfortably on the ground. Also sleep-related, the curtains could do a better job of keeping the apartment dark in the morning and in Tokyo the sun rises at 4:30am.
    The apartment is on the opposite side of a highway and when all windows are closed this is fine but in summer this can be annoying if you want to sleep with your windows open.

    Overall we highly recommend this place and it helped us in having a great time in Tokyo!

  • Lovely little apartment. Good facilities and good location. Chris was very Helpful before and during our stay and was very quick at getting back to me when i had any questions. I will definitely be staying here again next time I am in Japan.

  • My father and I spent 4 days at Chris's lovely home. I could not have asked for a better place to stay. Not only was it comfortable but it had a great view and all the amenities that a person could ask for. It's close proximity to Meidaimae Station made it so easy to get to Shinjuku, Shibuya and downtown Toyko. Chris was a very communicative and accommodating host and we appreciate everything he did for us.

  • I stayed in Chris's apartment with my finance for 2 weeks. It was fantastic. The room got plenty of light during the day and outside of the coldest nights was very comfortable. It had a lot more amenities than I was expecting. Very convenient with easy access by train to Shibuya, Shinjuku, Shimo-Kitazawa, and Kichijoji. There was also a bus to Koenji, Asagaya, and Shin-Nakano about 10 minutes walk away.

    Chris was prompt in responding to any questions I had. Would recommend this apartment and its host!

  • What I love about Christian's apartment the most was the balcony view. The view was just amazing, at day or night, the view didn't disappoint me.

    Christian's apartment was located at Meidaimae, which meant you had to take a train to the shopping district. But his location allows to you take a train to Shinjuku or Shibuya easily. I believe on the Express Keio line, it's two stops.

    *Hidden Secrets I found: 1) there are nice ancient apartments nearby Christian apartment which are great for photographers.
    2) A train track is nearby as well so you can check that out.
    3) Local restaurants like Ippudo and supermarkets nearby the Meidaimae station,

    I would definitely visit Christian apartment again in the future.

  • I live in Tokyo and my parents stayed at Christian's place in Meidaimae for 5 nights. It was better than any hotel room. Just like having your own apt in Tokyo. It is well equipped, with everything you might need for a longer stay (cooking stuff, washing machine, etc.). The view is lovely, nice sunrise and beautiful at night. Christian was very helpful, even showing me the apt in advance. since I also live near by I know the area very well. It is a nice neighborhood, with many cheap restaurants and cafe's (for the students of the Meiji University across the street), and easy to get down town both to Shibuya and Shinjuku (about 10-15 min by train). Also located only few stations from Shimokitazawa and Kichijoji, which are also nice neighborhoods to visit if you have the time). Thanks Chrirstian!

  • It was a very nice apartment, just the right size for two people. The location is very convenient to go to Shibuya, Shinjuku, Shimokitazawa and Kichijouji - must have seen places within Tokyo.

    It was easy to reach Christian by E-mail and he always answered questions immediately. The apartment was clean and equipped with everything promised in the description.

  • El piso es maravilloso, soleado con muy buena vistas. Y tiene de todo, desde lavadora, toallas hasta plancha, Chris, es super amable, y realmente es recomendable el lugar, uno se siente en casa y en el barrio uno encuentra todo lo que necesita.

    The apartment is wonderful, sunny with very good views.
    It has everything you need: washing machine, towels, etc.

    Chris, is friendly and help full. You feel at home and in the neighborhood you find everything you need.

  • A good base for our 10 days in Tokyo. The location of the apartment is great - Meidaimae - in what almost feels like a village in the big city. The apartment is a 5 minute walk from the train station and there are many small restaurants and shops nearby. The apartment is a fine size for 2 people - we appreciated the balcony (great view), the storage space in the entrance hall, the small separate kitchen. We felt like we were coming home in particular after a few days away travelling. We really liked the area and the place itself was perfectly comfortable.

  • Christian's place was actually pretty good. Although I didn't meet him when I got the apartment, I was able to call him and he answered.

    The apartment and the location will really give you an idea of what is it like to be living in Tokyo as a young adult and what its like to be living outside of the city. It's pretty much a studio that has everything you need. I will return to Christian's Apartment next time if available (hopefully!)
