Kia ora. My husband and two kids stayed for 3 days 23/3/15. The apartment was in a perfect location, close to the station, clean, warm and was the best place to start our 5 weeks here in Japan. The pocket wifi was excellent as we aren't operating mobiles whilst here. So handy and gives you the opportuniy to live in urban Japan much like those who live and work here. As a family of four '"strapping"Maori from NZ, the apartment was spot on. Ka kino kee!

The neighbourhood was convenient and the apartment was cleanly. My only small complaint would be the wifi was choppy and that the battery did not last very long (~6H). However, they were gracious hosts and the rental was great value overall.

This place was home away from home for us! A quiet retreat from the busy city crowds. Location wise was great being that its on the JR Yamanote Line. A friendly staff waiting for your arrival, easy check out, and at a reasonable price. The heaters worked, there was hot water running, a kitchen laundry, and the pocket wifi - all the things you expect to find at home, we had it! The negatives would be 1) battery life on pocket wifi didn't last as long as we wouldve liked it to have (that has no reflection though on the apartment or affordable stay team, just some heads up to the next guest to use it sparingly). 2) It's quiet, which worked perfectly for us but if you and your travel mates are looking for the hustle and bustle the city has to offer right outside your door then this is not the place for you. For us, the peace and quiet atmosphere was nice to come home to. I had to really think hard about the negatives, and as you can see they are petty and none of them have any bearing on the apartment or the staff. All in all 4.5 out of 5 for me. We would love to stay here again, and I will not hesitate recommending this place to anybody! We loved it!

Best apartment and best host(s) I have ever experienced in Airbnb. If you will visit Tokyo and look for an apartment for 3-4 people, do not hesitate to rent this flat which is very clean, has everything you need (pocket wifi, Owen, iron, washing machine, TV etc.) and located very convenient place to use JR Yamanote line (5 min by walk). Additionally, you will be supported by very professional and friendly team before and during your travel to Tokyo.

I would very much recommend staying in this wonderful, spacious apartment in Tokyo. I spent a week here and found it a perfect base for doing sightseeing, with its very useful proximity to the JR Yamanote line. The apartment is also very quiet, and looks even better in reality than in the photos provided here. I had a few problems with the wifi, however the staff were extremely helpful and swift to resolve this problem!

The flat is really well situated and is exactly the description done. The Otsuka JR station is really close and allows a good access to the main famous places to visit. There are also a lot of local restaurants close to the station where it is possible to eat quickly and for a low price. We really enjoyed the week we lived in Tokyo in particular due to this practical and nice (kawai !) flat.

The pictures did not do justice! The place was bigger than the pictures and it was complete with all the possible things you can think of when staying temporarily in an apartment. Moreso, the space was immaculately clean so you would feel right at home. The area is situated within walking distance from the train station and the neighborhood is complete with various restaurants and convenience stores. I would definitely recommend this to anyone planning to come to Tokyo.

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:

Ikebukuro (2min)
Nippori (10min)
Shinjuku (11 min)
Ueno (13min)
Harajuku (15min)
Shibuya (17min)
Akihabara (18min)
Tokyo (22min)

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.
All our prices include utility fees (water, electricity, gas, etc.) and free WiFi.


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.

CHECK IN and OUT
Check In is from 4 pm and until midnight. The Check Out time is always at 10 am. Please come to our office first, which is located only 30 seconds from JR Otsuka station’s North Exit. We will guide you to the property and explain about our recommendations on our way, then how all the appliances and remotes work in the flat.

If people arrive in Otsuka after 6pm, please go to the bar SPEAKEASY(we will make the arrangement with you via mail), you can get a map to your accommodation and the keys there.

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:

GOOD LOCATION
All apartments are taking less than 5 minutes to walk from the stations on the Yamanote Line and other major subways.

LATE CHECK IN IS AVAILABLE
You can check in even if your airplane would be delayed to late at night (every day until midnight).

THE BEST BAR IN TOKYO
You can get a free drink ticket for Speak Easy, one of the most famous international bars in Japan that we are managing. Many international people and English speaking Japanese locals come every night.

INTERNET CONNECTION
Japan is infamous for lacking WiFi networks, so you can rent a Pocket WiFi from our office. The daily price is 600 yen or 4000 yen per week. A refundable deposit of 10.000 yen is required. You can use the device not only in Tokyo but anywhere in Japan.
For the private apartments, Pocket WiFi fees are included in your rent price (except for 1K Private Apartment for Two #1).

Please come and join our community and let us make your stay in Tokyo as memorable as possible.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
