I was born/raised in Japan and have spent some years in New York.
Dan is a great host. I truly recommend this cozy space in a great neighborhood!
The best thing this apartment has going for it is the location. It is conveniently located right next to the Azabujuban metro stop which gets you easily into the train system to get anywhere in Tokyo. Locally, its about a 5 minute walk to the two main walking streets in the area which have a nice selection of shops, restaurants and stores. Roppongi Hills is about a 15 minute walk with Roppongi and Tokyo Midtown just a little further beyond.
(Location/Directions Removed). As for the inside, the main source of natural light is the door out to the balcony. The balcony overlooks the inside curve of the building with the walkway leading to the other units overlooking your bedroom. The bed and bedding is as basic as you can get. The mattress is very hard, covered by a thin white sheet. A single small pillow and comforter complete the set. Take the bedding off and you'll find an old and yellowing pillow and comforter that have clearly been in use for some time. The unit does not come furnished with any sort of general convenience items such as towels, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, etc., and would have to be picked up upon arrival. Laundry can be done just down the street at a local laundromat. As for the kitchen nook, it comes with a couple plates and cups but no pots or pans to cook with. The fridge is a mini fridge which fits a few drinks and miscellaneous food items. The apartment does not come equipped with wifi but a mobile wifi device can be rented from Dan for 300 yen a night which you are expected to pay for all at once, upfront, in cash. The device barely works inside the unit and must be placed out on the balcony in order to get a reliable signal. It works well out in the city but did not work in a few areas outside of Tokyo I visited during my stay.
After staying at a few Airbnb places, the main difference between this listing and others is that the unit is not owned and lived in by Dan. As a result, the unit is obviously not as cared for and is lacking in general amenities expected in a furnished unit. For the price of this unit, the standard of living it offers is simply too low to justify staying here. I would not recommend this apartment.
Was really pleased with the experience with Dan. The place was exactly as described, clean and with all amenities one may need for a short stay.
Besides, Dan is a very responsive and accommodating host. First, he let two of us to stay though the place was advertised for a single person only. Also, our flight got delayed causing us to arrive only around 11pm, and Dan waited for us until we got there.
Highly recommend to everybody.
