We really enjoyed our first trip to Tokyo and staying in Mika's apartment definitely enhanced it. It is very spacious, modern, super clean and accommodated us and our daughters (24 &18) perfectly! The condo is tastefully furnished and decorated and has nice river views. Beds are very comfortable. There are some nice added amenities including pocket wifi (handy for Google Maps), and floor heating in the living-room area. Mika provided everything from slippers to umbrellas, toiletries, laundry detergent… The kitchen was very well stocked not only with nice dishes and top of the line appliances, but with lots of food and drinks, including snacks, tea, coffee, juices, vine and beer.
Location is super central to almost anything in Tokyo! This is an upscale area in the middle of the city, yet very quiet and private. Actually, many of the places you may want to go are walking distance from here! Having the subway station minutes away and very convenient bus stop next door was fantastic - particularly at the end of a long day of sightseeing. There are many restaurants close by, as well as markets and mini-marts.
Mika is the most delightful hostess! She was super nice, accommodating and helpful with informative emails and detailed directions prior to our arrival. Mika was very friendly, always available to contact throughout our stay, met us at the appointed time after we arrived and gave us a thorough orientation. She even got some fresh fruit and delicious baked goods for us! Mika also met with us when we checked out and arranged our taxi ride to the Tokyo Station.
Bottom line: strongly recommended on all counts.
Thanks again Mika for your hospitality, we look forward to seeing you again on our next trip to Japan. It’s an amazing country with so many things to do! We can’t wait to come back!
