Interaction with guests
This will be your own private house while you are in Tokyo. Of course I like to meet as many guests as possible, but I have a busy schedule so I let an Airbnb host support company called Zens care of my guests and apartment.

There are quite some famous department stores (Isetan/ Takashimaya/ LUMINE/ Marui/ Shinjuku Southern Terrace) where you can go shopping.
There is also Shinjuku Gyoen and Hanazono Shrine where you can experience the nature in the center of the city. If you want to go for a night out, there is Kabukicho where you will see a lot of Izakaya’s (Typical Japanese “restaurants”) stores and host clubs. There is Robot restaurant which is very popular.
For shopping, there is SHIBUYA109 (men and women dept are in separate buildings), a big shiny mall with over 100 boutiques that all show the latest looks in disposable fashion. There’s also Shibuya Hikarie for an older and more refined consumer. Shibuya crossing is famous intersection outside Shibuya Station. If you want to experience nature and exercise a bit Yoyogi park is within 10min walking distance!
Omotesando Hills is famous for shopping in the Omotesando area.
Takeshita street is always crowded with brewing with young people.
Meiji Shrine is one of Japan's most popular shrines. This shrine was completed and dedicated to the Emperor Meiji.
Asakusa's image is different from the big office building image that most people have of Tokyo.
It has a more historical feeling to it as you can for example find Sensoji Temple there. To get to Sensoji Temple you will first have to pass through the famous Kaminari Gate and walk passed the little stalls on Namise Street. This is probably one of the hottest sightseeing places in Tokyo.
On Nakamise street, there are all kinds of stalls from souvenir stalls to food stalls.
Asakusa is also famous for its Monjya. Asakusa offers all kinds of small restaurants and cafe's so it's not only for sightseeing!
Tokyo Sky tree
In May 2012 Tokyo finished building a 634m high radio tower called the Tokyo Sky tree. It has become a popular tourist attraction as you're allowed to go in side and go all the way up to 450m where you can enjoy a fantastic view of Tokyo.
On the first observatory 340m-350m there are some restaurants, cafe's and even a hotel. Here you can enjoy the scenery while having some drinks or food.
The second observatory located 445m-450m high you can check out the whole of Tokyo as never shown before.
On the ground floor there's a big mall with around 312 stores, restaurants and features an aquarium and planetarium.

Other things to note
★Check-in: 15pm Check-out: 10am
It's possible to leave your luggage in the apartment after 10:00AM or until 15:00PM but please leave the suitcases closed and near the door so the cleaner can clean around it easily. Also, the previous/next guest might leave his/her bags in the apartment too so take your valuables with you when you go outside and put the key back in the original place.
We try to keep the rules simple:
- Please don't smoke inside the room. You can smoke on the balcony but please close the window while you smoke so that smoke doesn't come inside.
- All musical instruments, stereos, radios, and your voice volume, etc., should be at a volume that won’t disturb the neighbours. Sometimes this can be quieter in Japan than other countries, please keep this in mind.
- Please ask us if you want to invite anyone over. If someone is staying overnight there is an extra charge which is 2500Yen per person.
- Please wash any dishes you use and try to leave the apartment in about the same condition as when you arrived. It helps us a lot to maintain a comfortable and clean environment.
- When entering the room please remember to take your shoes off inside.
- Please always give a smile to the neighbours or property manager if you see them :). Some of them may worry about new guests arriving so a smile is important!
- Please turn off the lights and air conditioner when you are out the apartment. We want to help the environment.
- Check-out has to be done by 10:00 am. I’m sorry but we have to charge you 3500 yen per hour for late check-out. It’s because we have to pay the cleaner for the extra hours and it will cause trouble for the next guests arriving.
If you could treat our place like it's your own house we will be happy :)
