OUR AIRBNB STAY IN TOKYO 2018 | RECOMMENDATION

Howdy! I'm back from Tokyo, one of my favourite cities in the world. I've been to Tokyo thrice, and apparently I am still not bored of it yet haha! This time around, I travelled to Tokyo for its cherry blossom season, but the cherry blossoms bloomed unexpectedly early this year, so we didn't really manage to catch the full bloom. However, we were considered really fortunate to be able to see some beautiful sakura trees around Yoyogi Park, Ueno Park and Meguro River. I will be blogging about my "sakura-chasing-journey" in my upcoming blog posts. But in this post, I just want to share with you my AIRBNB stay in Tokyo this time (as I received quite a lot of DMs regarding this).

I'm absolutely satisfied with our Airbnb stay in Tokyo this time (not sponsored). It's pretty hard to find spacious houses in Tokyo. The one that I stayed last 2 years was awful because it was so freaking small. And you can't really tell from the pictures posted on Airbnb so it's always a hit or miss.

LOCATION

The place that we stayed in Tokyo this time is a new apartment located nearby Komazawa-Daigaku station (4 stations away from Shibuya station). It's literally 1-MINUTE WALK AWAY from the subway station, which is why I strongly recommend this place. It only takes about 10 minutes to Shibuya, 15 minutes to Harajuku and 20 minutes to Shinjuku by train. There's also a Family Mart & Doutor (cafe/restaurant) nearby the place (literally just 30 seconds away omg). I would say the location is really amazing.

HOW TO GO TO THIS AIRBNB FROM THE AIRPORT?

We took the Narita Express train (3390 Yen/person) from Narita Airport to Shibuya station. Then from Shibuya station, we transferred to the Den-en-toshi Line to Komazawa-Daigaku station. Walk for 1 minute, then taadaa, you've reached your destination!

CLEANLINESS 
Since it's a new apartment, the place is really clean and well-furnished. It has 3 storey - the second floor consists of a living room area, the kitchen, and the bathroom whereas the third floor is where we sleep (no beds, only futons provided but we enjoyed it). The bathroom and the toilet are separated so you get more space. 

SPACE


Futons 
Another reason why I recommend this place is because you get an AMPLE space all for yourself. It's a private apartment so you don't need to share with the host or anyone else. Also, there are plenty of space for you to put your luggage and other stuffs since it has 2 different floors. It just feels really comfortable to have enough space!! Besides, there are also enough plug points for your usage. 

AMENITIES 
A complimentary pocket wifi is provided by the owner! All the basic amenities are provided as well such as washing machine, stove, electric kettle, kitchen utensils, bath towels, vacuum cleaner, umbrellas etc.  

DRAWBACK
But the only downside of this airbnb is that you have to carry your luggage up to the second floor and the staircase is pretty steep. You just have to be extra careful on this! 

PRICE
It costs about RM250/night (excluding cleaning fees and service fees). The rates do vary depending on the season. The rate went up to RM371/night during our stay due to the peak season but we think it's really worth the price!!

  1. It's @maggiechongmy here. Thankful for the tips. I saw the staircase, haha, it's very steep and narrow. But the apartment is well-furnished though. Only visit Japan if only you can climb...
