1 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
Architecturally designed house- a serene retreat in central Tokyo.
This penthouse contains living, dining, and kitchen on one floor, and an oversized bedroom on the top floor. Furnished with a comfortable queen size bed in the bedroom and an easy-to-operate sofa bed in the living room, the penthouse is able to accommodate four to five guests comfortably. It is equipped with an open kitchen/dining, a spacious full bathroom, and a powder room (with a toilet and a sink) nearby the living room. The outdoor deck adjacent to dining area brings in plenty of sunlight with lovely, open views.
The house was designed and built in 2009 by the owner/architect, with the aim of bringing an abundance of natural light in the city and using comfortable and neutral materials and colors throughout. Conveniently located in the Ebisu/Meguro area, you will find an array of shopping and dining choices as well as several supermarkets all within short walking distance from the house. Meguro Station is within 7-min walk and Ebisu within 11-minute, both with JR Yamanote Line and several Tokyo Metro subway lines with easy access to many popular destinations. Within a 5-minute walk to Ebisu Garden Place, you will find this shopping mall with a spacious plaza for children to play in and is the home of Yebisu Beer Museum. It houses Mitsukoshi department store offering international dining, bakeries, coffee shops and cafes, a book store, plus an upscale supermarket on the basement level with plenty of fresh groceries, delicatessen, Japanese and Western sweets, take out lunch boxes, and many more.
From both Narita and Haneda airports, the Airport Limousine bus stops at the Westin Hotel in Ebisu Garden Place, which is a 5-minute stroll to the house. The Narita Express train is another convenient option, which will take you to Shinagawa Station. The house is a 15-minute taxi ride from Shinagawa Station. The airport monorail from Haneda Airport stops at Hamamatsucho Station on the Yamanote Line, and you are able to transfer to Meguro Station or take a taxi from Hamamatsucho.
Please be informed that this is a uniquely designed house (rather than an apartment), thus you will be able to stay with complete privacy and comfort in a pleasant neighborhood in the heart of Tokyo.
Please note: There is an outside stairwell leading up to 3F. Sorry, no elevator.

Modern, comfortable and convenient location.
This place was very well located - easy access to either Ebisu or Meguro subway stations.
All amenities worked great, linen, bedding, dishes, etc etc were all well stocked.
The large windows give great views from all sides of the apartment.
The 2 floors allows for some privacy.
I would definitely recommend this place, and plan to stay again on our next visit.
The decor, feel and location of this property is wonderful. It's in a lovely residential area in Tokyo, so if your goal is to immerse yourself in the city, you'll completely achieve this. The amenities are modern and excellent, the bed amongst the most comfortable we've slept in and the laundry machine is top-notch. If you travel with children, be prepared for them to be amazed by the completely automated toilets -- to the point of them wanting us to buy some for our home. Great way to feel as if you're living in Tokyo.
A very lovely stay
We stayed 5 nights at the Mita residence and we love how spacious it is. We like how everything is organized and the minimalist design with no clutter. The house is situated on a steep hill but it was not too bad of a walk. We really like the grocery store a couple blocks from the house that makes it very convenient. Meguro station is about 10 minute walk. Lillian and Vangie were very nice and welcoming. Lillian always reply promptly to all emails. We just felt very comfortable at the home. I would not hesitate to stay here again on my next trip. Thank you for a fantastic stay!
Great Place! Great Location!
Three friends spent 6 nights in this very comfortable home in mid October. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
The home is compact but has all the essentials for comfort. While the couch pulls out downstairs we all chose to use the beds for 3 (one double, one twin) on the second floor. One full bath with a great tub and one half bath we’re perfect for us. Laundry and full kitchen were very convenient.
The location is convenient between Ebisu and Meguro stations. We usually walked to Meguro and took the JR Yamanote line (circle line) wherever we wanted to go. The home is on a rather steep street but it wasn’t that bad to maneuver. At most it’s about a 10 minute walk to the train either way.
I highly recommend this property. The owners were great with communication and provided recommendations for the area. If you like staying in a more neighborhood-y area with pretty easy access via train to the hustle and bustle of Shibuya, Shinjuku or other Tokyo hot spots this is a perfect place for you.
Wonderful place to stay!
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks at the Mita Penthouse. It is situated on a quiet street, even though the surrounding area is bustling. We found it very convenient to access both the Meguro and Ebisu JR subways stations, the latter being a healthy 15-20" walk. We appreciated the two stories as it gave us extra space and privacy. The furnishings are comfortable; appliances reliable, useful. Lillian provides a very thorough instruction manual for the appliances, air conditioning, etc., as well as a number to call for an English-speaking taxi service. As others have mentioned, there are staircases both outside the unit and within, so renters should be prepared for stairs. Assuming this unit is available in the future, we would absolutely love to stay here again.
Thank you, Lillian.
Clean and located next to an ideal train station. Host left a great book with information and were always available for questions.
