Tokyo Disney Resort is also an easy train ride from the flat, which takes about 15-20 minutes.
It will be a perfect base for your holiday in Tokyo!
When you are coming from Narita airport, the easiest way to get to the flat is to take a Narita Express train to Tokyo station then get a taxi, which only takes 5 minutes to the flat.
We will provide you more details such as a detailed map and directions etc. when you book your stay.
Bicycles: We have 2 bicycles in the bike alley for you to use during the stay.
When you want to go shopping, or to Tsukiji Fish Market (very early in the morning),
these bikes come in very handy indeed!!

We have a special file with a lot of information on restaurants that we can recommend,

Simply the location!
You can walk to Ginza and there are about 10 subway/railway stations to go and around Tokyo.
The building itself was brand new when we purchased it,
so it is earthquake proven and has all the modern facilities.
We used the flat for 1 week in late September. It was immaculately clean and beautifully appointed. There was nothing that we needed that was not provided. It was perfectly situated for all the sightseeing we did, including probably the best access tond Tokyo! It was in a wonderful neighbourhood full of charming shops and little restuarants, and a very short walk to the retail hub of Ginza. We found it to be a wonderful refuge from the madness of Tokyo and a great place to come back to each day after a hard day of sightseeing. I would recommend this unit to just about anyone.

I can't say enough good about this apartment. It was perfect for the two of us as first time visitors to Japan.
The unit itself is very comfortable, modern and and clean. It has FAR more than the basics. It is in a fun, safe, and convenient area for accessing sights and public transport.
And most importantly, or hosts ensured that we had everything we needed. There were maps and guides and books for our use. There were detailed instructions for everything in the apartment. And Joyce answered question after question for us, offered to reserve restaurants or help us buy show tickets, and generally made us feel most welcome in Tokyo.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to explore "like a local", on foot and using public transit, buying local groceries and/or eating in little local eateries. Tokyo is not for the timid, it takes some figuring out, but everything included I in this apartment will start you of right!!
Marking the stars didn't work in the review I've just submitted - it's 5 STARS!!
We absolutely enjoyed staying in this apartment: it is in walking distance to many interesting places, very well maintained and immaculately clean with all the modern appliances and a very nice bathroom. Joyce is a wonderful host who will help you planning your stay with her ample knowledge of the city. We really felt at home in this apartment and would definitely want to stay there, if we again came to Tokyo.
Very spacious apartment by Japanese standards. Clean, cozy and well-equipped. Excellent base to see Tokyo with several underground stations nearby. Ever so helpful owner who foresaw just about everything we might need. Thank you so much!
This was our first visit to Japan. Joyce could not have made our stay more enjoyable. She provided us with no end of information about the Ginza area and the sites to see in Tokyo. She even spent a day with us acting as our tour guide. The flat had all of the amenities that we needed and was very close to a number of metro stations and the Tokyo Station. Also easy access to Ginza for those who are keen on shopping. We would love to visit Tokyo and Joyce again and will definitely recommend the flat to our friends.
We stayed at two of Joyce's properties in Tokyo. The location is quiet and quite close to Ginza shopping. It was a great launching point of getting around Tokyo. We somehow fit 4 of us in the 1 bedroom which has a divider between the bedroom and the living room. The room is nice, modern, and very well kept. Part of what made the stay so nice was Joyce. She's seriously great! I was working while there and half dead from the jetlag. I pressed the emergency button (don't do it), lost my key, needed reservations, and needed help getting around and Joyce was there to help every step of the way. She's really a great host and made the stay very enjoyable. I've stayed at Airbnb, homeaway, and VRBO's all over the world. This is hands down the best host I've had yet.
Why stay in a hotel room when you can have a luxury holiday flat with a fully equipped kitchen plus a washing machine? There is a living space and most of all - very comfortable beds. The property is located in a quiet residential area close to Ginza where many old houses and small businesses still remain. However, within 5-10 minutes’ walk, you can get to Ginza, one of the top tourist attractions in Tokyo. There you can shop and enjoy dining out and drinking at a wide variety of cafes, bars and restaurants of your choice. You will find 10 subway and Japan Rail stations within a 10 minutes’ walk with the nearest subway station is just around the corner! Some of the most popular tourist attractions in Tokyo such as Tsukiji Fish Market, Hama Rikyu Gardens, the Imperial Palace, and off course, Ginza are all walking distance from this holiday unit. It is a perfect base for your vacation in Tokyo!
