Recent Tokyo property reviews

  • Perfect Location

    "Our extended family of six recently stayed here for 6 nights. Location of apartment is perfect, we spent sometime wandering around the shops- found some fantastic restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, supermarkets, etc. Easy access to Tokyo and suburbs. The train system is great and we didn't have any problems getting around. Makoto was extremely helpful, he met us at the train station and provided all the information we needed. Would definitely recommend and would love to visit again."

  • Great Location

    "It's taken awhile to write this review; thought I had done it before. It was a great location, about a 5 minute walk to the station. Great little shopping mall nearby. A convenience store a couple blocks away. Quick subway trip to anywhere, really. The Miyasaki museum is a couple of stops away. Makoto-san was very helpful; met us at the station and walked us to the apartment. He was very efficient in the preparation for our visit, making sure we knew the train lines etc. We had a tiny mix up in the meeting, but communicated through Whattsapp. I'd stay there again."

  • Cheery Apartment in Western Tokyo

    "We stayed 5 days in this bright and cheery apartment in Western Tokyo. It's conveniently located next to the train station, but don't worry about any noise--triple glazing on the windows prevents any noise from being bothersome. You can walk through a large and well-stocked supermarket to get to the apartment from the train station. There's an outdoor produce market as well as a traditional Japanese sweets shop close by as well. The neighborhood seems to have several interesting cafes, restaurants, and hole in the wall yakitori places, but we were able to only try out a few in the short time we were there. The apartment is well-maintained and the shower is excellent. If we return to Japan, we would definitely consider staying here again."

  • Small but efficient, great location!

    "Small apartment (though spacious for Tokyo standards). Exactly as described. Thoughtfully furnished and clean. We had no problem sleeping 8 people there. We were out in the city most of the time, so this was a great place to crash. Just a few blocks from a great subway (and Japan Rail) station. Nakano area has everything you need: shopping arcade that goes on for blocks, grocery store, restaurants, etc. Neighbors and neighborhood were quiet. Host Makoto was great via e-mail beforehand. He greeted us at the train station and was careful to explain everything, but we were jetlagged and missed a few things. Would have been helpful to have some English labeling/stickers on the remotes for air conditioners and washing machine. Garbage sorting procedures (6 differeent bins!!!) could have been more clearly labelled as well. Overall - recommend highly. Can't beat the price and the amenities/ location."

Tokyo Travel Tips

Visitors to Tokyo Vacation Rentals

Tokyo is a modern city with a vibrant atmosphere. Most travelers visit Tokyo for business reasons but there are still many people that come to take in the city’s many attractions. Aside from traditional Japanese culture and history, shopping is what attracts many people to Tokyo. Many people will accompany their spouses who are traveling for business, simply so they can enjoy hours of retail therapy in the many malls and markets there.

Things to See and Do near Tokyo Lodging

Many people say that Tokyo is a city that never sleeps. For tourists that enjoy a vibrant nightlife, visit discos, bars and restaurants in the district of Roppongi. The Roppongi Hills Mori Tower has an observation deck on the 52nd floor that is open until 1 a.m. and has spectacular views over the city. A floor up is the Mori Art Museum which is open until 10 p.m. in the evening. There are also many tourist-oriented restaurants in the district where you can enjoy dinner.

If you would like to see some of the cultural sights, take a bus tour to the nearby Imperial Palace. There are several departures that operate daily and some take in other attractions, such as the regions of Ginza and Maranouchi. For something different, you can choose the night excursion which shows you a different side of the attractions. The Sensoji Temple is believed to have been built in 628, making it the oldest temple in Tokyo. There are many souvenir sellers and restaurants nearby as it is a popular tourist stop. The Edo-Tokyo Museum explores the history and folklore of Toyko from the Edo period to the present day. It is also the venue of the famous Grand Sumo Tournaments which take place several times a year. You can sometimes see Sumo wrestlers in training at the nearby practice stables.

Hong Kong is well known for its fantastic shopping, especially when it comes to electronic goods. Animated toys and robotics are especially popular with the younger generation. Digital cameras, computer and cellphone accessories are other popular items.

Modern Living in Tokyo Apartments

Tokyo is a one of the leading commercial powerhouses in the world. It is a city that is known for its wealth yet is not without its contradictions. While there is a strong emphasis on modern lifestyle and commercial success, age-old traditions have not been entirely forgotten. This is often reflected in the style and furnishings of vacation apartments in Tokyo. Sleek lines and minimalistic designs tend to be the trends in style, but often you will see a traditional-style painting or picture adorning the wall. The apartments are compact and functional. Many are located in the tall high-rise buildings that dominate the city;s skyline. When looking for a vacation rental, choose one that has easy access to a metro or rail station. This will make getting around and sightseeing much easier.

Traveling to Japan Vacation Rentals in Tokyo

For international travelers, you will most likely arrive at Narita Airport which is located just outside of Tokyo. Narita is a modern and efficient airport that serves as a major international hub to the greater Southeast Asia and Pacific regions. The airport hosts many international airlines from around the world that have regularly scheduled flights to Tokyo. Japan is known for its widespread and highly efficient public transport network. The country has some of the most advanced high-speed trains worldwide which makes getting around a pleasure. Initially, navigating the various routes and lines can be confusing. Keep in mind that the Japanese Rail, or JR as is it commonly referred to, operates independently from the Metro system and other private rail networks. Your best option is to purchase a city and rail network map and use that to navigate your way around.
