Fantastic apartment - tastefully furnished and very well-equipped! Hiroyuki was very prompt in answering and the instructions provided in the apt as well as via airBnb was very thorough. Love the neighborhood too. The supermarket in the basement of very nearby Otsuka station is fantastic with great sushis with marked down price in the late evenings. Many great eateries n convenient stores with very reasonable price in this lovely residence area. Very worthwhile to stay our three nights here n will not hesitate to stay there again the next time we are in Tokyo!

Hiroyuki's place was really convenient! It's just a short walk from Otsuka JR station (yamanote line). The area has many convenient stores and 24/7 eateries nearby; there are 2 Lawson 100 shops (mostly groceries stuff at 100 yen) quite nearby, which was great! The apartment was nice and quite cosy! It was really easy to do laundry and light cooking! It isn't too small or too big. I think it's just nice for 2 guests. Though we did not meet, I believe Hiroyuki is a great host! He was very quick to help with my queries about the apartment! Thanks for hosting us and we would gladly stay again if we visit Tokyo!!! :)

I was invited to be a host for Airbnb from my friend and challenged it with my interest. I have used homestay for several times and remembered it was very convenient and comfortable stay.
I’m attracted by how I can give people pleasure as well as I enjoy it.
This room is located in quiet district where passes over Kabuki-cho in Shinjuku. Even though you can walk around from “sleepless town,” the area is calm that there’s a park in front of the room. In train, “Shinokobo station” is very close where is known for Korean town and sells Korean cosmetic and restaurants offer delicious Korean food such as BBQ.
Moreover, Shinokoubo is the station of Yamanote line, which is very convenient for sightseeing in Tokyo. It is only a station far and takes 2 mins to Shinjuku station and 9 mins to get to Shibuya station, so access features this room. It takes only within 30 mins to the major cities in Tokyo.

Tokyo’s attraction is that each city has very unique characteristic so you can encounter special experience.
For example, Shinjuku is a town with buildings that shine lights at night, delicious food, and an adult town, so I would highly recommend to go there at night. There are many restaurants in upper floor that you can enjoy dinner with great night view.
Shibuya as well as Harajuku is mecca for pop culture such as music and fashion and crowded with people who seek for “kawaii (cute)” thing. At midnight, young people who want to dance in the club get together.
Other than that, Asakusa has “Skytree” as well as “Sensouji” which retains Edo period’s trace so you can see traditional culture and ordinary people’s life.
Akihabara has anime, comic, cosplay, and game culture and I personally like this area because my job is a game designer and my hobby is playing a TV game as well. I’m proud of Japanese games so much in terms of high quality in video and clever story composition.

Based on my house accessible to anywhere, I hope you will find a way to see a various side of Tokyo.
