Apartment - Entire home/apt · Minato, Tokyo, Japan

The Space

** NEW - Just added satellite TV service: CNN, Discover, kids, and movie channels! **

Experience Tokyo living in a modern luxury apartment near the waterfront. This apartment is located in Shinagawa, a major transportation hub in Tokyo. It has direct train stops for both Narita and Haneda airports (Haneda is only 15 minutes door-to-door!), within walking distance of 3 major train/subway stations (closest train station is 4 minutes walk away), the Shinkansen bullet train, and most major stops in the city are reachable within a 10-20 min train or taxi ride.

Our home is a rare gem in that it has a commanding view of Tokyo Bay from the living room - you can see all the way to Yokohama and Chiba... AND on the other side you can see Tokyo Tower from the bedroom/balcony. The unit is fairly new, offers a roomy 926 sq ft (86 sq m) space, furnished with high end furniture, and is on the 37th floor.

*** THE NEIGHBORHOOD ***

Though it is close to all forms of major transportation, the Shinagawa seaside area where the apartment is located is characterized by wide walkways and decks which border quiet canals. There are some restaurants and cafes with outdoor terrace seating where you can take a coffee and relax. Additionally right adjacent to the mansion (1 min walk) is a small park which is great for families. There is a 24 hour supermarket and a cafe serving drinks, lunch, and dinner on the property itself for added convenience.

Once you reserve you will be able to check out our GUIDEBOOK in which we describe some of our favorite restaurants and stores in the area:

In addition to being able to experience the city as a Tokyoite would, staying at our apartment is often easier on the budget than staying in a hotel. In Japan, hotels charge not by room, but by person, so the costs really do add up (and usually for less than 1/3 the space).

We often travel the all over the world ourselves and are also avid users of AirBnB while traveling - we love meeting fellow travelers and are very happy to share all we know about Tokyo - don't hesitate to let us know if you need any help in your travel planning.

Please do include a brief introduction about yourself when you contact us. Thanks!

(The second bedroom is also available as a private bedroom for up to 2 people - please contact us directly for more details)

  • Perfect apartment with the great views! Totally recommend this apartment! Kent and Reina are nicest people! Million thanks, and even more!!!

    April 2014
  • What a great first Airbnb experience. Kent and Reina were very responsive to all our queries for our first trip to Japan and even helped out with suggestions when our Kyoto accommodation fell through at the last minute. We were also able to have our wifi hub delivered directly to the apartment.

    The apartment was very convenient for arriving into Haneda (short mono rail ride and 5min walk) and Reina greeted us with a warm welcome at the crack of dawn after our long flight.

    The apartment was clean, spacious, had everything we could possibly need and what a fantastic view! The pool downstairs was lovely (I had it to myself) and our toddler had a great time at the large playground nearby. The 24 hour supermarket had a great selection of takeaway food (no cooking for us) and some western staples for the fussy child. We spent our evenings gazing at the view sipping beer.

    The apartment was also very convenient for Shinagawa (either on the shuttle or a short walk) which in turn is very convenient for sightseeing.

    Reina helped us onto the shuttle and waved us off. I wish we could have stayed longer.

    Many thanks Reina and Kent.

  • I stayed at the apartment with my girlfriend, elderly parents and my sister. The place was great and had all of the things that we could possibly need. Being winter the luxury of heated floor made that apartment a very comfortable place. Also there was a great supermarket nearby that was very handy. The shuttle bus from the apartment building to Shinagawa station came frequently and made it easy to get around.

  • We loved our stay at this apartment in Tokyo. The neighbourhood is quiet and the apartment very close to public transport, extremely convenient. Kent was a gracious host, and the apartment had all the facilities we wanted and more. Plus, as the ad says, the views are absolutely Gorgeous! I stayed there with my husband and two grown up sons, and from there went all around the city. I strongly recommend the apartment if you´re planning a visit to Tokyo.

  • Kent and Reina were just wonderful ! From the very beginning to replying fast the e-mails, with key and useful information, to welcoming us upon our arrival in Tokyo, they were always super warm and efficient. Reina waited for my arrival, and took her time to explain key points of the city, and how to get around. Their apartment is amazing. The view of the Tokyo bay is simply stunning. Specially when you are jet lagged and can enjoy the sunrise at fullest :D ! Also, they provide all facilities, and the apartment is super clean, comfortable and the beds are excellent. Wifi works wonderfully, and all the appliances in the apartment work perfectly as well. The building is ultra modern: swimming pool, fitness center, sky lounge... it feels a very cozy 5 stars hotel. We cannot wait to come back to Tokyo, and meet Reina and Kent again in our next trips. They are amazing. Thank you guys for being absolutely incredible to us. Hope to see you again soon. Best, Julia & Diego

  • Great place to stay while in Tokyo. Very convenient to the city. Excellent view from the flat. Nice accomodations. The building is very safe and very clean. I would definetly stay here again.

    November 2013
  • Kent's flat in Tokyo is amazing, even better, bigger, nicer than on the pictures! The view is great, so is all the building with it's infrastructures. Last but not least, kent has been very helpful during our stay: a nice and warm welcome, good suggestions of visit, we wish we can come again and recommend with no hesitation.

    November 2013
  • The appartment, situated in building A of World City Towers, was beautiful and spacious enough for a small family on an extended stay. The 37th story views of Tokyo Bay were stunning, and Reina, Kent's wife, was a very friendly and helpful host. The appartment and especially the kitchen were well equipped, which is not necessarily usual on Airbnb. Shinagawa station provided a terrific hub for exploring the area, with direct connections to downtown, Narita, Kamakura, and long distance Shinkansen service. We can strongly recommend this appartment!

  • Kent's place is gorgeous and that is an understatement. The view of Tokyo Bay is incredible. It made me want to stay in Tokyo in forever.
    The high-rise flat is conveniently located near Shinagawa Station, which is one of the main stations in Japan. This made traveling extremely efficient and effortless. The area is filled with nice places to eat and great places to walk and/or run.
    Kent is attentive to emails and extremely helpful, kind, and knowledgable. My stay really could not have been any better. 5 stars all the way.

    Response from Kent & Reina:

    Thanks for your comments Lauren - indeed the view can be mesmerizing - I've spent many hours watching sunrises and sunsets over the bay and enjoying the little planes, trains, cars, and boats moving all around the scene (kids love it too - like a Lego set)... and the occasional peek of Mt. Fuji when the sky is clear. Also super happy that you were able to fully take advantage, running around the decks and canals around the place. It would be fantastic if you could come back either for a trip, or a longer stay!
