Very well located apartment near Shinjuku station, great for getting around via metro and walkable to nightlife spots including golden gai and robot restaurant. Apartment is on the small side for us from (UK) but normal sized Japanese apartment and we weren't expecting bigger. Several convenience stores nearby. Everything worked in the apartment as expected and communication with owners no problem. Would happily stay again.

Very nice studio, well equipped and very close to everything. The location, the apartment and the price were great. I highly recommend this studio especially if you want to go out in Shinjuku at night, that is perfect.

Ikuko & Bill were wonderful hosts who were always there to answer when we needed help with anything. The apartment is just as advertised. Perfect location for shopping yet still in it's own quiet little neighbourhood, just walking distance from main Shinjuku stations and attractions. There is also many local convenience stores nearby for any last minute things you may have forgotten to pick up on your way back home. I would definitely recommend others to stay here.

Me and my wife, both first timers in Japan, were given the perfect base from which to explore Tokyo thanks to Ikuko and Bill's apartment. It is in a perfect location for getting about Shinjuku with local landmarks such as the Golden Gai a short walk away. The apartment itself is ideal for a couple in a quiet but very friendly part of town. Communication with the hosts was first class and i always got a response quickly. All in all this was the ideal place to get to know Japan and we would definitely consider staying again.

We have learned so much from our time as airbnb hosts and we are pleased to say we have most questions answered before you ask them, whether it be in the description of the listing or in the detail we supply you with at confirmation. Still, we are always trying to think of ways to make our guests experiences more comfortable, efficient, and hassle free. This is our goal as hosts. We want everyone to see Tokyo at least once!

Tokyo is a great place to come and people from all over the world visit here making it a truly international city. We love Tokyo and seeing the amazing sights and people. It is a great place to explore and every day can be different. This is an awesome destination for walkers and wanders filled with friendly people, tasty restaurants, and plenty of lights.

Hope we can host you soon! May your trip to Tokyo be a great one.
