“Fantastic location. Love Seiyu, the 24 hours supermarket.”

This is my second time going to Japan with my family. Since we only have 6 days to spend, I decided to stay in Tokyo and go for day trips leisurely. Nishi-Ogikubo is the best location with a lot of local eateries and shops.
On the night of our arrival, Makoto met us at the station. He gave us suggestion of where to eat, whether it's ramen, sushi, Mos burger, it's all there. Even karaoke!
After we settled down, we went down to a conveyer belt sushi place. Price was good.
The 1 BR apartment was very clean, has everything that we need. Since there were 4 of us , we rented an extra mattress for my son. It was a little cramp, but it was comfortable enough for us.
The apartment came with WiFi, we also rented the pocket WiFi which was very useful while we were out all day. The kitchen was fully equipped with toaster, microwave, rice cooker, stove and grill.
The 24 hours supermarket beside the apartment building is called Seiyu, but it's actually Walmart in Tokyo. The price of goods there were cheaper than other stores.
They also have a variety of cooked food. They marked down the price after certain hours at night. So we always buy discounted food , like ramen, teriyaki chicken, grilled mackeral to eat at breakfast.
Taking day trips from Nishi-Ogikubo station was convenient, as it is only 7 stops from Shinjuku station. The train system in Japan is so well operated, we had no trouble navigate around.
My son is an animation student, he really enjoy going to Nakano. He found many stores that sell anime fiqures. There is also an animation museum that is within walking distance from our apartment . We walked through local residences, it was just an unique way to experience Tokyo.
The stop next to Nishi-Ogikubo is Kijijioji. I love that place too. It has lots of small boutiques and unique merchandises.
I will definitely rent from Makoto's company again in the future. Makoto speaks Spanish,too. He and my daughter was chatting away in Spanish. ( my daughter studied Spanish at school)
A word of advice, the garbage collection system was a bit confusing. But it was all necessary to keep our planet green.

“Loved This Bright & Cheery Tokyo Apartment”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

We loved this bright & cheery apartment. It's so conveniently located next to the train station, but since the windows are triple glazed, there's no problem at all with noise. The location was particularly nice during the rainy season, because you can get to the apartment by going through a large supermarket, meaning you need only take a few steps unprotected from the weather. The apartment is immaculate, the bed is comfortable. In addition to the supermarket, there's a Japanese sweets shop, a produce vendor, and several small restaurants nearby. Would definitely consider renting again.

“Live like a local”
Reviewed January 18, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

people found this review helpful

We loved our two bedroom apartment and the opportunity to experience Tokyo more as a local. Nishi Ogikubo is a lively but quiet neighbourhood with plenty of inexpensive eating options. While it's about five stops from Shinjuku, it's a relief as a family to be able to come 'home' after a day's sight seeing and each have some privacy and a bit of space to relax.

The apartment is terrific; décor is simple but modern and the apartment includes all conveniences, including a washing machine and two modern heaters. We didn't bother, but could have easily cooked a meal, especially when there is a large supermarket two minutes away.

Don't be deterred by the proximity of the train line; we had to listen hard to hear any trains and like most of the places we have visited in Japan, there is next to no traffic noise. We have a very quiet sleep.

We arrived at 10pm at night and were grateful to be met at the station by Makoto who pointed out some good eating options and took us on the short three minute, walk to the apartment. We would definitely stay again.

We enjoyed our stay in Tokyo Japan. The apartment we stayed very clean but a little bit too small...It was very convenient location as far as transportation and the eatery area very close...

“Perfect Stay in Tokyo”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

people found this review helpful

We have booked this apartment for four days and we loved our stay here. The check-in was the friendliest introduction we ever had. So our contact does not only explain and showed us the appartment, furthermore he gave us several tipps for Tokyo and showed us the near area what was very helpful. The location of the apartment is in the near of a train station so it is very easy to get around in Tokyo. The apartment was very clean and comfy and is big enough for up to three people. The kitchen has everything a hungry traveller needs for cooking. I can only recommend this appartment.
