Overview

Overview

Tokyo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 tatami style bedroom (sleeps 2-4), 1 bath unit, 2 sofa day beds, sleeps 6 - 8

Located on the main shopping strip, you are minutes away from both traditional Japanese eateries and some of the best international restaurants that Tokyo has to offer. The area has something to offer to both young travelers as well as for families.

If it's your first time to Tokyo as an individual traveller, you are close enough to the bars and clubs in Roppongi but not too far enough away that you can easily get home and enjoy a peaceful nights rest. If you enjoy all the conveniences of home like your morning coffee, you'll find 2 Starbucks, 2 Tullys, and some boutique coffee and tea houses as well.

If partying until the early morning is not your cup of tea, you'll find the neighborhood to be clean, fun and family friendly with plenty of areas to allow your kids to run around and play in recently constructed jungle gyms and parks while you can enjoy a glass of champagne or fine wine.

If you tire of the city, there are 2 subway stations with 3 trains to get you away.

The unit is a spacious, corner room with a beautiful bay window overlooking the main shopping street. While the entire unit is well lit during the day with two balconies, we hope you'll find the traditional tatami style bedroom to be surprising quiet and cozy.

Time to popular destinations in the area:

- Tokyo Tower, 10 min walk

- Roppongi Hills, 1 min walk

- Roppongi Main Crossing, 10 min walk

- Shiba Park / Daimon Temple, 10 min walk

- Meiji Shrine, Harajuku, Shibuya, Shinjuku, 10 min by train

- Tsukiji Morning Fish Market, 10 min by train

- Tokyo Midtown, 15 min walk

- National Modern Museum, 15 min walk

- Tokyo Disneyland, 40 min by train

- Tokyo Dome, 15 min by train

- Odaiba / Toyota Showcase, 30 min by train

- Makuhari Concert Hall, 45 min by train

- Narita Airport, 1 hour by bus or train

- Haneda Airport, 30 min by bus or train

Although there is a kitchen with two burners, please plan to take advantage of the wide selection of restaurants in the neighborhood. I am happy to provide suggestions during your stay.

I've stayed at homeaway units in the US in the past and now happy to provide this type of rental option to travelers to Tokyo. I hope that you will find this unit to meet your needs and exceed your expectations in terms of comfort and convenience as you discover for the first time how fun this city is or become reacquainted with Tokyo.

For long-term and/or larger groups, please feel free to contact me to learn more about our special offers and I can make special arrangements to prepare for your stay.

Wishing you happy and safe travels!

Awesome Greeting for 1st Timers to Tokyo

  • 5 of 5
I am writing this nearly 7 months after staying in Brian & Mami's apartment with my husband and two adult kids which is the best kind of review in my opinion because the good feelings are still with us! We had a fabulous time even though we were quite jetlagged (I loved all of Brian's remedies and wish I still had the herbal remedy for sleep from the local pharmacy that Brian took me to.) Basically, we would recommend that you do whatever Brian & Mami suggest as they really do know best. Such a lovely city too. We liked this neighborhood too as it was fairly close to subway stops and lots of lovely places to eat. The apartment itself was very cozy and comfortable and quiet. Next time I will remember to read signs from the bottom up and right to left ... it did cause a few problems :) Really a lovely apartment to rent from a lovely couple!!! Can't wait to meet Little Joe some day. Howard, Mary, Nelly & Wyatt from Wisconsin, USA

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
Staying here was great. The hosts were great and very thoughtful. The beds were very comfortable and everything was clean and in working order. The location was really convenient and the hosts gave us many personalized suggestions for things to try in the area. With a toddler, having a kitchen and washing machine was a life saver. I would definitely stay here again!!

Owner's Response: Thank you - domo arigato - mahalo for the kind review! You are always welcome back too.

We love to host families especially those with connection / family in Tokyo (or if its a first time visit - as the neighborhood has both traditional and international shops, restaurants, museums, temples, and bars).

Thank you too for all the toddler tips! Hope to see you again soon!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my family in April. The place was very clean and everything we needed was available, cutlery, laundry, etc. Owner was really nice and responsive to our requests. Location was pretty good as there were two train stations within short walking distance. There were grocery stores, restaurants and bakeries near by. We didn't have a car, but didn't have any issues.

Roppongi stay is great

  • 5 of 5
Me and my dad stay here for about 10 days. The area is 100% wonderful. The apt has plenty of room, very clean and the hosts were very nice in showing us around. If you are looking to experience Japan and see all the sites you will like this place very much.

Ideal location, great owners and a great time

  • 5 of 5
I only have good things to say about this rental. From the accurate description of the location and amenities on the website, to my arrival and subsequent stay, everything worked out well.
The owners were prompt in there correspondence with me and gave me a great deal at short notice. On arriving I had contact numbers and the location of where to meet the manager who then took us through the apartment and had necessary paperwork at the ready. The apartment was as advertised, cozy but still plenty of bed space for a group of people. The location is great. An easy walk to the metro from where you can go anywhere and in a neighbourhood with plenty of great restaurants as well as being an easy walk up the hill to Roppongi if you're after pubs and clubs at night or shopping at Roppongi Hills during the day.
We felt safe and secure the entire stay, it seems the apartment was in a more upper class area with nice restaurants and decent people, the Lincos supermarket (kind of like a whole foods) was a 3 minute walk away and good to grab drinks and snacks or dinner if you don't feel like doing the whole restaurant thing although you'd be missing out on some great places to dine.
Anyway, in the end myself and the others staying with me honestly had only good things to say about the apartment and our short visit (4 nights) to Tokyo. Definitely 5 stars.

We all love Tokyo! And I love meeting interesting people from around the world. I want to share our home with you so please consider our place your place, your home away from home.

Please be my guest and only if you do not mind, please tell me a little about yourself and your trip plans. It helps to know something about you and why you are traveling to Japan. I enjoy it most when I can help family and friends reunite in this great, vibrant and resilient city! or its a dream vacation that you've been planning and saving up for years...as summer fireworks and street festival season is just around the corner! (Sorry the Juban matsuri last weekend in Aug is already booked!).

In most cases I am happy to meet your budget so if the price is somewhat out of your budget I make special exceptions whenever possible as I care less of making a huge profit and more about the purpose of your visit and the quality of your stay. I promise I will do more than others to accommodate for your stay and try to fulfill any special requests before your arrival and to try and make your stay - short visit or longer term - very special. Also, please rest assured if it's your first time to visit family or friends, returning after several years, or here on business or pleasure, that you will have a local, support staff to assist you 24/7.

I hope you'll find the area as one of the most international yet traditional parts of central Tokyo. Just as the neighborhood around you is a mixture of new and traditional Japan, you'll find the room also a nice, cozy balance of western carpet and traditional Japanese style tatami mats. There's a spectacular view of the city from the corner bay window and the morning sunrise reminds me of day break in Manhattan; another favorite city that never sleeps. And if you try hard you can even see the tip of the Tokyo Tower from one of the verandas (obviously not a selling point)! It's a rare and unique mix of new and old inside and out. So please get out and be ready to explore all the great things that Tokyo has to offer!

You will be minutes walking distance away from traditional boutique shops, restaurants, bars, and some of the newest shopping malls; Roppongi Hills (viewable from veranda) and Tokyo Midtown (not viewable from unit).

If you enjoy being in the center of it all during your stay, you will find this unit particularly attractive especially during the peak seasons.

For example, in the Spring / Summer, you can enjoy some of the most beautiful cherry blossom spots (just ended!), again just walking distance away. In the summer, the unit will place you above the Juban Matsuri (August - sorry already booked!) as over 20,000 people gather in the streets. The event can be compared to Maudi Grau in the US or Festival in Brazil but ends considerably early (so you can continue to enjoy peaceful night rests or continue to party until the early morning just stumbling distance away from Roppongi street).

In the Winter / Fall, you can enjoy the year-end illumination of Roppongi Hills (until late-February).

Both Roppongi Hills and Tokyo Midtown offer shopping, late night dining, jazz bars, and traditional Japanese gardens for jogs / photo opps. There are also new play grounds and jungle gyms for your kids. You should find the area is kid / family-friendly and a little more spaceous to allow your kids to run around, safely.

If you prefer more classic / traditional experiences, the main shopping strip has many places to choose from... including Japanese sake and sho chu with rare selections, traditional noodle soba shops as well as other homemade traditional dishes including oden, yakitori, and Japanese sweets.

If you prefer a mix of international cuisine, you also have a wide variety of options including French, Italian, Chinese and American style BBQ restaurants (all reasonably priced).

And if the you tire of the hustle and bustle of city life, to get in & out of Tokyo, there are two stations within walking distance (Hibiya line (to Tsukiji Fishmarket and Ginza Kabuki / Shopping area), Oedo line (to Shinjuku and Tokyo - Narita airport station), and Nanboku line (to Shinagawa - Narita or Haneda Airport).

If you have any specific inquiries, please feel free to contact me directly (English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese - toutes mes excuses je suis encore aux études Françaises).

Domo arigato & Happy Trails!
