This is a spacious, clean apartment with good kitchen and laundry facilities, liked the large wet room and separate toilet. An excellent location with easy walking access to multiple subway lines that took us to many of Tokyo's attractions. The apartment is close to department stores, supermarkets and a variety of restaurants and cafes. Portable wifi was a nice touch and very handy. Definitely worth a stay.
Deluxe 1 Bedroom Apartment, Nihonbashi - Shaun and Lynne, Australia
The location of this place is exactly what I hope it would be; a short walk to the main street of Akihabara. Ryu (the guy who tended to me) can speak really good English and he gave me a lot of recommendations on Akihabara (including which maid cafe to visit!) for my one night stay there.
Great location. And special thanks to Ryu who gave me good recommendations around Akihabara. Do let me know if you are dropping by in Singapore. I wouldn't mind bringing you around. :)
1/3rd Residence Yashiki, Akihabara - Kenneth Ng
Pros: The Akasaka location was quiet (for Tokyo) but a short stroll led to two Tokyo Metro stops and some nice restaurants.
Cons: One of the two fridges provided was a little noisy.
Location: Akasaka is a pretty well-to-do part of Tokyo, so plenty of good restaurants, and easy Metro access to the rest of Tokyo.
The apartment was well located in Akasaka and well-equipped for a short to mid term stay. Check In was handled via an email notification of an access PIN to enter the apartment which all worked perfectly. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and able to handle the rigours of two adults and two kids for three nights.

About the areas
Akihabara, also called Akiba, is the technology centre of the world. In more recent years Akihabara has gained recognition as the center of Japan's cosplay fan culture, and many shops and establishments devoted to cartoon world of anime and manga are dispersed among the electronic stores in the district. On Sundays, Chuo Dori, the main street through the centre of town, is closed to car traffic in the afternoon.
Akihabara has gone through a major redevelopment over the years, including the renovation and expansion of Akihabara Station and the construction of new buildings. Included is the gigantic Yodobashi electronics store, the largest electronic store in Japan, which top floor comprises of many funky newly opened dining establishments. Also popular attractions in the area are UDX, SofMap, Maid, Cat and even Owl cafes.
Just a short walk from Tokyo station, dubbed the "center of Japan", the Nihonbashi district has flourished with bustling shops lining the streets. Many shops with centuries-long histories are still operating in the district today and make for pleasant strolls. Mitsukoshi Nihonbashi, is Japan's first department store and stands in the district's center. Recent redevelopment projects have revitalized the Nihonbashi district with tasteful new additions. A highlight is the Coredo Muromachi complex with its three elegant skyscrapers that feature shopping and dining in a modern, yet traditional design inspired by the Edo Period heritage of the merchant district. Many of its shops specialize in traditional crafts or local foods from across Japan, such as lacquerware, gold leaf, knives, chopsticks, sake, katsuobushi, seaweed and sweets.
Akasaka which sits on more than 25 hills, is one of Tokyo's high-class districts, with numerous famous dining and entertainment establishments, concert spaces, the headquarters of Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) TV and some impressive architecture.
Akasaka is a office building district that offers hustle and bustle at one end, and quiet elegance at the other. Akasaka is the closest of any shopping and entertainment district in Tokyo to Japan's center of politics, Nagatacho and also adjoins Tokyo's liveliest nightlife district, Roppongi. Akasaka strikes a balance between the two, being more lively than Nagatacho, but more elegant than Roppongi. Akasaka is narrow cobbled stretches of non-stop bars and pubs, right next to some truly spectacular office towers, and with green, eminently walkable undulating streets of expensive housing and boutique shopping. The most notable building in Akasaka is the huge white Prudential Tower, near the Akasaka Excel Hotel Tokyu.
One of the most popular areas of Tokyo, Shinjuku is broken up into many fun and different areas, Shinjuku station, Kabukicho (the red light district), Omoide Yokocho, Skyscraper district to the west, Golden Gai (bar central) and Shin-Okubo (Korea Town).
Shinjuku station is the busiest train station in the world, and it definitely seems that way when you visit. Kabukicho is Tokyo’s famous red light district comprising of many bars, love hotels, pachinko and fun places, including Tokyo’s crazy Robot Restaurant & the newly opened Samurai Museum. Golden Gai and Shin-Okubo are great places for a bite to eat or spot to drink.
Shinjuku West’s Skyscraper district houses the many renowned hotels including Keio Plaza, Hilton, Hyatt Regency and Park Hyatt with expensive restaurants in the lower and upper floors.
Shibuya is one of Tokyo's most colorful and busy districts, packed with shopping, dining and nightclubs serving thousands of happy tourists and locals everyday.
Shibuya is a center for youth fashion and culture, and its streets are the birthplace to many of Japan's fashion and entertainment trends. Over a dozen major department store branches can be found around the area catering to all types of shoppers. Most of the area's large department and fashion stores belong to either Tokyu or Seibu. A great tourist hot spot in Shibuya is the large intersection in front of the station's Hachiko Exit, said to be the busiest in the world. The intersection is heavily decorated by neon advertisements and giant video screens and gets flooded by pedestrians each time the crossing light turns green, making it a popular photo and movie filming spot.
Yoyogi Park (代々木公園, Yoyogi Kōen) is one of Tokyo's largest city parks, featuring wide lawns, ponds and forested areas. It is a great place for jogging, picnicking and other outdoor activities. Yoyogi Park makes for a nice cherry blossom viewing spot in spring. Furthermore, it is known for its ginko tree forest, which turns intensely golden in autumn.
Ikebukuro (池袋) is one of Tokyo's multiple city centers, found around the northwestern corner of the Yamanote loop line. At the district's center stands Ikebukuro Station, a busy commuter hub traversed by three subway and multiple urban and suburban train lines. The station handles over a million passengers per day, making it the second busiest railway station surpassed only by Shinjuku Station.
Ikebukuro offers plenty of entertainment, shopping and dining opportunities. It is the battleground between the Tobu and Seibu corporations which operate large department stores on each side of the station, as well as train lines from Ikebukuro into the suburbs. Seibu furthermore has a stake in Sunshine City, a large shopping and entertainment complex not far from the station.
Harajuku (原宿) refers to the area around Tokyo's Harajuku Station, which is between Shinjuku and Shibuya on the Yamanote Line. It is the center of Japan's most extreme teenage cultures and fashion styles, but also offers shopping for adults and some historic sights.
The focal point of Harajuku's teenage culture is Takeshita Dori (Takeshita Street) and its side streets, which are lined by many trendy shops, fashion boutiques, used clothes stores, crepe stands and fast food outlets geared towards the fashion and trend conscious teens.
Just south of Takeshita Dori and over twice its length is Omotesando, a broad, tree lined avenue sometimes referred to as Tokyo's Champs-Elysees. Here you can find famous brand name shops, cafes and restaurants for a more adult clientele. The stylish Omotesando Hills complex was opened in 2006 and targets fashion conscious urbanites in their 30s and 40s, while Kiddy Land has hundreds of unique toys for kids of all ages.
