Jame's place was amazing! The view outside the apartment was amazing especially at sunset. The flat is huge for such a central location which was an added bonus! You couldn't get any more central to Shinjuku then this area for such a great price, a 5 minute walk and you've reached golden Gai and a few minutes down the road and you've reached Shinjuku station where you can get anywhere in Tokyo within a few minutes. We were also able to leave our luggage with Kim when we checked out so that we could explore around without having to drag our luggage everywhere. I would highly recommend this place to anyone that wants to explore Tokyo as well as have an amazing place to stay! :)

The apartment is a good base for exploring tokyo. It is in the red light district but not too noisy at night to sleep. Its about 15 minutes walk to shinjuku station and from there just a few stops to shibuya and harajuku. It has everything including a hairdryer and towels and close to convenient stores. I didnt get much interaction from the host but he left detailed instructions for us.

James's place is incredibly conveniently located in shinjuku. Great value. Only draw back is that it gets quite unsafe for single ladies roaming around the area at night- there are random guys trying their luck and one attempted to enter the apartment building. Otherwise it's really good value for money!

Great Location - Check Super Easy Check-in/Check-out - Check Right amount of room - Check Easy communication with/instructions from host - Check View from 15th FL balcony - Check+++++++ Awesome apartment in a great location. The balcony is definitely the reason why I booked the place and it did not disappoint! Room was sized well, especially by Japanese standards, and the shower was great. You can tell some parts of the place are a little older but nothing that would prevent me from staying there again. Definitely a great value for the money and would recommend James' place for anyone looking to stay in Tokyo

James User Profile

Hi I'm James from California! My mother is Japanese and my father American, so I spent my childhood summers visiting Japan and falling in love with this beautiful country. I grew up in Hawaii, California, and Seattle. After graduating from university, I lived in Hokkaido (Japan) and Seoul (South Korea), then served as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer in South Africa for 2 years. I now work in Tokyo as a consultant in finance and tech.

I love travel, photography, and anything related to the great outdoors. Although working in Tokyo I am pretty busy during the weekdays, when free I love to grab a coffee or drink with or take guests out to experience the city! Studied city planning and international sociology in university, so I can give you a rundown of Tokyo and Japan from that perspective as well.

Countries I've visited so far: South Africa, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, India, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia (Bali), Turkey, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Ireland, UK, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland

Looking forward to meeting you soon! Shoot me a message if you have any questions about Airbnb, my apartments, or Tokyo in general!
