My partner and I lived in the apartment for 5 weeks. We absolutely loved living there!

TLDR: Amazing location, great view from the apartment. Room was good, would be better with another chair/stool and a table and if the bed had a boxspring. Overall would 100% recommend and rent again.

Here are the pros and cons of the place:


1. Location

- Great location for people who want to feel like they are really living in Tokyo rather than visiting. The area is right next to the Marunouchi Line which can take you to the East/South part of Tokyo. It's also a 7 minute walk away from Otsuka station which connects you to literally everywhere in Tokyo.

- Another great part about the location is it's safe and beautiful. The streets are clean and the sidewalks are wide.

-There are tons of small food places that taste great! There's a grocery store near by and people are always friendly and happy to help.

2. The Room

- The view from the room is absolutely incredible. I can't even begin to describe the joy it brought me to wake up, come home to, just generally experience that view as a daily part of my life. On clear days you can see the mountain in the background, and at night the lights on the buildings make me feel like I'm watching a light show.

- Neighbours were friendly, helpful and best of all quiet.

- Lots of storage space, whether in the closet, under the bed, behind the bed, in the shelves, lots and lots of space to put stuff.

- Bed fits two people quite comfortably.

3. Host

- Always available for questions/comments, helpful for getting to know the area.


1. The Room

- This is the only con for the location and it didn't affect my trip that much. The room does not have a table and only has one chair. This made cooking/eating a little more difficult, but it wasn't too inconvenient.

- The bed is very, very soft. I usually use a firmer bed so it was a very big shift for me. The bed would be perfect if there was a boxspring or something underneath it for some extra firmness.

Overall: I would 100% rent this apartment again. The location and the view from the room were amazing and made my 35 days in Tokyo comfortable and affordable.

Great value. Accessible to Honjo Azumabashi train station with a 7 minute walk. Very clean. Host met me at the train station and showed me to the apartment. This was a perfect accommodation for spending a couple weeks exploring the city. I would definitely rent through them again!

The apartment is nice, clean and has a good connection to JR loop line.

But otherwise we absolutely can't recommend booking with Modern Living Tokyo.

The bed was terrible and after the first night our backs hurt very much.

Also the communication with the host was troublesome. We had many different contact persons, none of them knowing what was agreed with the previous one. We received an invoice to pay the cleaning fee although it was already paid.

They expect you to check your emails during your vacation and respond back or otherwise they won't meet with you at the previous agreed location and time. So hopefully you are able to make cheap phone calls.

And finally there are some hidden catches with your contract. After booking you may need to pay additionally for bed linen, towels etc. and to pay 30.000 yen as security deposit. Of course they will pay this security deposit back later... about a month or so and the bank fees will be paid by you. Of course, because you insisted on a deposit.

In contrast to our previous bookings in Japan - which all were great and the hosts more than helpful - this sucked.
