About our home

Convenience and luxury! Our house is 11 mins walk from shibuya station (the crossing you see in movies), yet whisper quiet. Living and dining rm, full kitchen. Large bedroom, huge walk-in closet, en-suite bathroom with shower, and access to a terrace.

The space is huge by Tokyo standards, and pretty spacious by any standards. The bedroom, upstairs, has an enormous walk-in closet for your use -- that can also function as a sleeping space for a futon -- a washer/dryer, and a bathroom with a nice shower. The deck is fabulous.

There is a separate living room, that functions as a second bedroom. This is open to the kitchen and deck.

It's whisper-quiet, but 5 minutes to all the shops in shibuya (8 to the trains) and 10 minutes to peaceful, green yoyogi park

Radiant floor heating downstairs, as well as 3 separate dual heater/air-con units for winter or summer.

Every train line is at shibuya station. Yoyogi-koen and yoyogi-uehera are also ~10 minutes away for more options.

Sleeping options:
Adults 1/2: Double bed upstairs
Additional adults/children:
(1 person) Sofa-bed downstairs. Can fit two, but better for 1.
(2 people) Futon mattresses on platforms. Can be placed in living room, the upstairs 'WIC/second room' off the bathroom, or split one-up, one-down. These are the best quality, washable cotton futons we could buy, and come with roll-up frames for extra support and breathability.
(Children) There is a peapod plus portable baby bed, pictured, which can go next to the master bedroom upstairs, or downstairs.
Absolute maximum: 2 adults (DB) + 2 (futon) + 1 adult (sofa-bed) sleeping with 1 child (sofa-bed) + 1 child in (tent)

Property size: approximately 700 sq feet.

Where is it?


Buzzy restaurants
in the heart of shibuya -- michelin stars and little noodle shops in walking distance -- more than you can count
Cool bars
Our single favourite bar, a small, dark, wood-panelled bar with a female bartender who makes a mean cocktail, occasionally rocks a kimono. It is just called "Bar".
Cozy cafés
too many to count.
Retail therapy
10 minutes or less to every shop in the universe (Shibuya!)
Bit of culture
noh museum. Just around the corner. Ceramics museum next door. Bunkamura is 2 minutes walk.
Walks in the park
kids parks, and yoyogi park (the green lungs of Tokyo) all in a few minutes walk
