This flat is one of three minimal Showa style apartments near Shinjuku. It is a 2nd-floor small studio type apartment 16㎡ with a Loft space to sleep. You get Homewifi, a compact kitchen, a loft, bathroom, and toilet in this apartment best for 2-3 people (up to 4 people). For the 4th person, we can provide additional futon but this will take up floor space. It is only a 6mins ride to Shinjuku from Daitabashi station which is a 4mins walk from the apartment. Pocket Wifi is available for rent!

The space
This flat is a small but clean studio unit with a kitchen, a bathroom & toilet, and AC. It has a great feeling of Showa Era located near Shinjuku (6-minute ride) and Shibuya (15-minute train ride). You can walk to the Daitabashi train station, which is just across the main road in 4-5 mins.

The flat is located in a real Tokyo neighborhood with friendly people and a great atmosphere. The neighborhood is full of useful amenities boasting 2 supermarkets, many convenience stores, Obento shops, and local cafes and restaurants all around! Coin laundry, and a public SPA (Sento) also on the corner which cost about 500JPY to make use of it! (Thursdays are closed). Moreover, there are lots of cute little traditional tavern 'Izakayas' on the way to and from the station. We highly recommend just stopping in for a quick bite and a drink or stay and chat with the friendly owners and patrons.

The apartment is one room (16㎡) with a separate elevated loft area that can be accessed with a ladder. There is a single bed in the main common area.
The loft space has a semi-double mattress (120*200) for up to 2 people and the main area has a single bed for 1 person. If you are 4 people, we will prepare one single futon set. So help yourself to make the bed on the floor.

The kitchenette is equipped with a sink, fridge, kettle, microwave, a small pan, and a small stove if you would like to prepare anything in the apartment. Although you are welcome to prepare food yourselves, there are many good small and cheap restaurants and eateries in the neighborhood. Indeed, eating out in Japan is often cheaper than home-cooking as the restaurant industry is very competitive.

The bathroom has a Japanese style tub and a shower; we provide soap, shampoo and conditioner of our local selection.

It is a pretty small studio, but if you use this flat just to sleep and get ready to go sightseeing rather than staying in all day then it can be very cost effective!
The whole place is yours although it is not big enough to get lost in this apartment!
There are 5 apartments for Airbnb in the same building if you are looking for more space and rooms. Don't hesitate to ask if you are coming with larger groups!

Hello people of the world! We are all seeking to find a mission in Life. And we found one which is to make nicer environment in the neighbourhood in the town I was raised! We truly love to make a little retreat for travelers who want to experience how ordinary people live. Hoping to make a section of town beautiful and somewhere memorable for the mind of people. I love to host all kind of people/religion/ethnicity/gender from the world to this quiet green retreat in generally concrete and hectic city of Tokyo.
