I'm a heavily traveled business man who prefers a nuanced vacation. This house is a fantastic place. 4 minutes easy walk from train station (Meguro-Yamanote line, two stops to Shibuya or Roppongi). It is in a quiet neighborhod (no loud noises), down a idyllic narrow street. The VRBO is the first floor of a duplex. Owners live upstairs (couldn't hear them). The floor plan is large, open, comfortable, with large bathroom (a plus in Japan), clothes washer and dryers, patio, large kitchen (a plus plus in japan). And I haven't even got to the best part... the kind and courteous owners. They will offer to assist you in finding train tickets, airport transport, and have a stack of tourist brouchures, maps, train schedules, and a house copy of lonely planet tokyo!! (no need to lug that through the airport). My only worry is that since this place is so good, it won't be free next time I come to visit.
