27 Apartment Rental Photos and Description

- 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3

The apartment is furnished with one semi-double sized sofa-bed, dining table, TV, washing machine, air conditioner and free high speed Wi-Fi. Each room has been recently renovated and equipped with all necessities. The fully equipped kitchen has a refrigerator, toaster oven, microwave, gas stove, cooking utensils, dishes, glasses and cutlery.

The apartment is located in a quiet and safe residential area of Nakano, just a 5 minute walk from JR Nakano station.

Nakano is conveniently located, being only one stop and five minutes away from Shinjuku station, the biggest station in Japan. It is famous for its reasonably priced restaurants and shops.

Once you go through the North exit of the station, you are at the entrance of the Nakano Sun Mall, a huge arcade. At the end of the arcade is Nakano Broadway, a shopping mall popular among “otaku” (enthusiasts of anime and manga), due to its number of stores related to Japanese sub-culture.

Also in the area are numerous izakayas, bars with live music, concert halls, a DIY store and a planetarium. In nearby Araiyakushi shrine garden, on some weekends you can enjoy a flea market selling a variety of antiques and knickknacks.

JR Nakano Station

Nakano is only 1 station west of Shinjuku Station (5 min.). It provides easy access to other major sites in Tokyo, Such as Shibuya (15min.), Harajuku (12min.), Akihabara (21min.), Roppongi (20min.), etc.

Guestbook comments from the manager

After a long flight over the Pacific Ocean, the Nakano apartment was the perfect place to settle in to. Makoto-san made the check-in process a breeze, and made sure that we had everything that we needed and showed us how to use everything properly. Staying at the Nakano apartment is highly recommended. During our two week stay, the three of us were able to experience a side of Tokyo that we never would have seen if we had stayed at a hotel. We frequented the nearby supermarket very often and were able to make and try a wide range of new cuisine in the comforts of our own space. The apartment was furnished with all the necessary amenities and is located in a very quiet and convenient area. We have recommended this apartment to all of our friends who are planning to visit Tokyo. And we’re definitely staying here again when we visit this winter! Arigatou Makoto-san for everything!

Totally Impressed

  • 5 of 5

We were met at the station by Makoto, who is very friendly and helpful. He quickly got us settled in and went out of his way to help when I failed to understand how to light the cooker. I cannot fault the service we received from the first enquiry email all the way to after our visit.

The apartment was lovely - well presented, very clean and great access for local shopping and the train. The area is quiet immediately around the apartment making for peaceful evenings and sleeps!

The hustle and bustle is, however, just a short walk away and Nakano Broadway has plenty to offer. Thoroughly enjoyed visiting here late afternoon on our way back. Of course, the supermarket is also very conveniently located and regular trips kept us topped up on supplies. With such a brief stroll back to home it quickly became part of our routine.

For the money paid it is very good value and I would be hard pushed to contemplate staying anywhere else as the service is reliable and friendly, making our stay stress free.

If anyone is considering a stay in Japan I will be surely recommending them this service. Impeccably good value and superb service all round, I sincerely look forward to staying again.

Un merveilleux sejour

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de séjourner 21 jours au Japon dont sept jours à TOKYO dans cet appartement.

Je recommande très vivement LIVEINASIA pour les raisons suivantes :-

- l’appartement, très confortable est très bien équipé

- il est situé très prés de la gare de NAKANO et de tous commerces tout en étant dans un quartier très calme

- la gare de NAKANO est pratique pour voyager dans TOKYO, avec la CHUO line et la proximité de YAMANOTE. Ainsi avec le JAPAN RAIL PASS, nous avons pu visiter Tokyo sans acheter un seul ticket de métro

- Enfin, notre correspondant Makoto KUNO nous a beaucoup aidé aussi bien dans la phase de préparation du voyage (il a répondu très rapidement et patiemment à mes nombreux messages !!) que sur place en venant nous chercher à la gare de Nakano pour nous emmener à l’appartement et en nous donnant beaucoup de conseils

- Le site internet est très bien agencé avec toutes les informations utiles pour un premier séjour au Japon

Nous reviendrons avec plaisir, par Liveinasia, dans cette location.

Comfortable apt with easy access to Tokyo sights

  • 5 of 5

The apartment served us well and we loved the Nakano area which offered a wide choice of affordable and intriguing restaurants. Makoto was superb -- helping out with minor problems, explaining the area thoroughly and then finally helping us navigate our way to the airport. Many thanks, Makoto!

Great apartment in nice location

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed a stay in this apartment with my friend. It was very clean and everything is provided if you want to cook. Nakano has a lot of places to eat out on the budget, the restaurants and take out places are within short walk. Apartment is very quiet as well. Excellent communication with Makoto, he met us at the station and explained everything about apartment. Highly recommended!

Great Place for a Good Rest

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time in Tokyo. We are glad to have chosen Nakano, which is located one stop away from Shinjuku, away from the hustle and bustle. Nakano has a street of amazing eateries and a mall selling local produce. Makoto has been great. He gave us a thorough debrief of Tokyo and Nakano, recommended eateries, and places that my kid can go to in the neighbourhood for Anime and ice-cream.

We came here with the expectation of living a life of the Japanese. Hence the recycling bit, though challenging, was viewed as fun to us. The room was clean and everything worked well. Makoto was very accommodating when we told him that we would like to check out very early in the morning on the eve of our departure.

I highly recommend this place for a good night's sleep in Tokyo.
