This is my creative space located in a quiet street by the river in the center of Tokyo's coolest neighborhood Nakameguro. Walking distance to Shibuya.
The one bedroom apartment has this cool 80's Showa Period vibe. Open the window, enjoy the sun.

The space

An open one bedroom apartment with nice flooring and big windows facing south gives you a peaceful space to relax from Tokyo's busy streets. You can enjoy a lot of sunshine. Open the window, get a lot of fresh air and chill on the small patio. You'll look at a nice garden surrounded by tall trees and bushes. This is rare in this extremely dense city.

## Bed
This is a good bed. It's a very high quality queen size mattress placed on a custom made wooden grid. Perfect for two souls. It gives the space a Japanese vibe with the highest western standard in comfort. Further the duvet is custom made in Germany. Super light and heat regulating. I consider the bed as the most important piece in a house. You just spent 1/3 of your life in it.

## Shower
After your flight the first thing you want is a nice hot shower. The shower is classic and has a modern update with heat regulation. Just enter your temperature and enjoy. I'll provide fresh towels. Off course it's clean!

## Kitchen
When you enter the apartment you enter the kitchen area with a very prominent dinner table made in Japan with wood from Nara. Very solid and perfect for all kind of activities. Place your Notebook there and work a bit, or plan your day while enjoying your breakfast.
You have enough kitchen utensils in high quality to make a good meal in case you get bored by those thousands of great restaurants in the city. The fridge has a lot of space and makes nice ice cubes for drinks as well.

## Safety
The space is on the first floor of a steel reinforced apartment block. No worries about earthquakes.
There is a working smoke detector above the bed and a CO sensor in the kitchen.

Guest access

You're my guest, so feel free to use nearly anything you need to have a good time. I will provide enough storage and hangers for your clothes.

## Music
I love music. Feel free to use my system if you know what you are doing. You can play Vinyl or just plug in your Smartphone. Be very careful with volume please!

## Internet
The Space has a fast connection to the internet. Just log in via WIFI.

## Roof
A little secret of this building is its rooftop. Just check it out. It's stunning. At night as well.

Interaction with guests

I will be around whenever you need something just text or call me. Further I will take my time to introduce you to the area if you like.

Other things to note

## Laundry
There is a 24/7 coin laundry just down the street which I use. About 500Yen for one bag with drying.

First of all, the location is just awesome. You can enjoy Nakameguro area without worrying going back to your place. Lots of nice cafe, japanese cuisines will make your quality of trip. This Bartek's flat is highly recommended. We had hot water problem while we were staying, but Bartek had come right away and he solved the problem within 2 hours even it was Sunday. (Thank you again Bartek!) And Every morning we had Vinyl to listen. That was so cool.

The studio is situated in Naka-Meguro, which is an amazing area of Tokyo with lots of coffee shops and restaurants. However, the flat is on the ground floor and there is a building site right opposite with extremely loud demolition works starting early morning practically every day (even on the weekend). We barely had any sleep due to those works, which did not help our experience of the city. The studio is very small and did not feel as bright as on the photos, but we came in autumn. Some renovation works could have definitely improved the stay. We never met Bartek, but he provided clear instructions how to get to the flat.

Great location and really helpful and friendly host. The flat is close to Meguro River and we were lucky enough to have the blossoms in full bloom when we were there as it is a popular and stunning viewing spot. There were many independent shops, boutiques and street food stalls, which had a great atmosphere and some brilliant offerings. We would recommend staying here, and Bartek made it easy to find and recommended places nearby. The flat is cosy and had plenty of storage for clothes and any food we wanted to buy. The record collection is also fantastic. This was our first experience of airbnb and will definitely be using it again.

Bartek's apartment was the perfect place to stay in Tokyo. It is right next to Nakameguro cancal which is incredibly picturesque and has lots of bars, shops and restaurants whilst also being very quiet. The apartment is small but perfect. It has a well-equipped kitchen, modern bathroom and very comfortable bed with lots of space for your things. Bartek was very quick to respond to all of our questions and gave us detailed check in information before we arrived. We would definitely choose to stay here again.
