Its quite a distance to walk (for those who dont like walking) from the train station (Takadanobaba) to the apartment (approximate 9-12mins depends on your speed). A very peaceful environment and friendly neighbours that showed us the apartment. Few steps away to the 7-11 store which is very convinient. The apartment is very small in size however its very cosy to stay just nice for 2 person. It comes with a balcony to chill out or hang your laundry (yes there is machine maching in the apartment). Check-in and check-out is very convinient too as the host make it clear and easy for both parties.
The apartment is quite homely. Well-equipped with the things that we need. 7-elevens are nearby if you need any quick bite. Restaurants are along the way to nearby station. Good that there is a heater available in the bathroom as the temperature tends to be cold in the morning so fret not! Just a little improvement in the cleanliness of bed sheets and hair dryer. Other than that, everything is good!
Yu's place is more than satisfactory in some ways. It has enough space for two, solid furniture (some places have doll's chairs!) and a washer/dryer - and a clothes drying function in the bathroom too. Fridge, microwave, kettle, rice cooker. All the stuff you need. The bunk beds are reasonably comfy and the 7/11 on the corner is handy. But it's really quite a hike from the station (Takadanobaba) and uphill too, so a cab is recommended if you have luggage or are just off a long haul flight. Or both... (cab from Taka station AUD5-7). It's a quiet and safe area. Not a lot going on though so you'll find yourself back down near the station a lot. Taka itself is jumping - and heaving with food. You won't starve. Yu's good with communication and will provide maps etc. We didn't meet him but instructions for key pick up were straightforward. We did have a health issue (asthma) with mould in the bathroom but I'm sure that will be sorted out quickly. For anyone concerned about stairs there are just 3-4 stairs down to apartment level. It's also a really quiet apartment block so if you need your zzzzs you'll appreciate it.
