31 sq. m/330 sq. ft. studio. Very easy access to Shirokane-Takanawa subway entrance, which offers quick access to Meguro and Tamachi stations. 25 minute walk to Roppongi. Unique modern design.
This place has an interesting shape, with big clear southwest facing bay-style windows (clear, not frosted) for natural sunlight. The bedroom is on a raised platform and has optional sliding rice paper doors for visual privacy if needed. Otherwise, it's basically a studio.
Full kitchen, with gas stove, toaster, microwave, pots and pans, etc.
I've got a full and detailed guidebook created for how to use everything in the apartment.
A supermarket that is open from 9am to 10pm is a 90-second walk away, a bakery is closer than that, and convenience stores, Starbucks, and a Saizeriya chain restaurant are about the same distance. There's really good Italian, a great ramen place, and an Okinawan place close by, among many others.
It's in southern Minato ward, 15 minutes to walk to Azabu-Juban, Shinagawa, and Meguro, 20 minutes to Roppongi and Ebisu, and probably 30 minutes to Shibuya. A great location if you don't want to have to worry about last train.
The guidebook I created also has information about the neighborhood.
This is my own personal apartment, and I'm renting it out while I'm gone. Since I don't rent this as a business, but just something I do only a few times a year, I try to give a really personal touch for guests, and am willing to communicate a lot before you arrive and help with any sort of travel plans (I know Tokyo very well). I've used AirBnB a few times as a guest as well, and I like that kind of host, who really cares about meeting people and being a part of their trip.
A friend who lives in the neighborhood is here to help you out with anything you need while you're here.
Because I'll be renting it out while I'm gone, I'll need some positive reviews or references on your Air BnB page, and to get to know you a little before I approve.
You can read my books and eat some of my food. Please don't smoke, except on the balcony with the door shut, and please be quite quiet. I'm very quiet, and my neighbors would get annoyed if it were suddenly noisy in here every night. I would tell you you can play the guitar too, but I just gave it away to a friend! ごめん!
I've lived in Japan since 2000, Tokyo since 2005. I work at a law firm, as an English editor for patents. I play drums in a dance pop band, DJ the easy way (push a button to start a new song when a previous song is ending), and I try to keep my bookshelf at least half full of books I haven't read yet.
I like quietness in my domestic arrangements. I watch TV with headphones, not because my neighbors complain about the sound of my TV, but because I want the moral upper hand if I have to complain about theirs. Only done this once in the two years I've been in my most recent place.
For many years I've been slowly eking out a book of philosophy on existence and the afterlife that I think will change the world. Wish me luck on that.
