We are 7 people from different nationalities that started AirBnB (Germany, France, Ukraine, Spain and Japan) , providing affordable accommodations, appropriate service and a warm welcome to tourists coming to Tokyo.
The location is our strongest appealing point. You can easily go anywhere since all the accommodations are within a 5 minute walk from the stations. For most of the places, the nearest station is JR Otsuka station, which serves the circular line JR Yamanote, the main and most used line in Tokyo. You can easily and quickly go to places such as:
Shinjuku (11 min)
The rooms are comfortable and fully equipped with all the utensils you need (microwave, oven, dishes, cutlery, fridge, toaster, water boiler, hair dryer, etc.).
The daily rent for guesthouse rooms (You have your own room, share kitchen and shower room with other tourists or locals) are three thousand nine hundred yen to four thousand eight hundred yen.
Private apartments are ranging from 6.000yen to 10.000yen.
We also have monthly prices, they are ranging from fifty five thousand yen to a hundred fifty seven thousand yen/month.

Otsuka is an old Geisha district (If you are lucky, you can see them!) with a rich food culture in the neighborhood such as Sushi, Ramen, Soba, Sashimi, Yakisoba, Takoyaki, Okonomiyaki and much more. Also, you can buy food from all over the world (Italian, Chinese, Thai, Halal food etc). There are several supermarkets that are open till midnight, and many 24/7 restaurants, bars and Izakaya. You will never feel hungry in this town.

Finally, if you want to get along with locals and other international people traveling or currently living in Tokyo, we invite you to visit our international bar SPEAK EASY, which is located just in front of JR Otsuka station’s North Exit too (taking only 10 seconds from the office!). It’s the best place to meet up with English-speaking japanese people and internationals. It’s a small bar but very cozy and welcoming, ideal to have a few drinks, socialize with cool locals, and make new friends! All our tenants get a free drink ticket when they Check In. Of course, people from our team are often going there as well!
Let me sum up our character again:
All apartments are taking less than 5 minutes to walk from the stations on the Yamanote Line and other major subways.
