The SpaceBuilt in 2011, it's a very new, bright, spacious and clean apartment - our apartment has it's own entrance door and staircase for use exclusively by us.
Guest AccessYOUR STAY:
Don't worry, you won't need to sleep on the floor or on uncomfortable tatami mats.
Your room has two windows and a balcony (you can smoke there), is equipped with a real bed, shelf, hanging closet, and offers a great view including the close-by SkyTree, the world's highest tower and second-largest building.
Of course, you are free to use the kitchen, towels, fridge and microwave, as well as help yourself to coffee/tea. Bathroom and Japanese 'washlet'-style toilet are in separate rooms and you are free to use the bath tub, too. Interaction with GuestsUpon arrival, you'll get a free electronic metro/JR pass which makes it much easier to get around in Tokyo and keep track of your transportation expenses.
I will also be glad to help you with anything beyond that to make sure you have a great experience in Tokyo! The NeighborhoodNEIGHBOURHOOD:
Conveniently located in Kita-Senju (3min from the station), itself a big, nice shopping area with major department stores and great eating out locations (rare vegetarian & vegan restaurants are also available) in 'Shitamachi', the old, traditional part of Tokyo with many small, Japanese houses. Getting AroundTRANSPORT:
From Kita-Senju, you have access to several of Tokyo's major transport networks, the subway network as well as the Japan Railways (JR) network, making it a perfect base to explore the city:
Chiyoda line, which will bring you directly to the Nogizaka/Roppongi area, a vibrant nightlife district, to Omote Sando, Tokyo's high-end fashion district, and the 100-years old Otemachi/Tokyo Station, as well as Harajuku, the area for the young fashionistas and geeks.
Also in Kita-Senju, the Hibiya line will bring you directly to Ueno, one of Tokyo's 5 major hubs (many major museums and shopping opportunities are here), as well as the high-rise office town area (Hibiya), Tsukiji, the world's biggest fish market, and Ginza, Tokyo's glitzy luxury district.
Kita-Senju also gives you direct access to Shibuya, Tokyo's centre for the young, as well as Akihabara, the 'electric town' with all gadgets you can think of, and Asakusa, the iconic temple with the big red lantern and all the souvenir shopping you can do - both just a few minutes away.
With the JR lines, you get easy access to the west of Tokyo, such as Shinjuku, where Tokyo's gay district is located as well.
There is a cheap and direct bus from Haneda airport (exactly 1hr, 1000 yen) to and from Kita-Senju and an easy connection to Narita airport (3 stations to Nippori and then take the Keisei airport line, also about 1hr). Other Things to NoteCHECK IN/OUT TIME:
Can be handled very flexible, according to your travel needs.
I share the apartment with one housemate.
