LARGE MODERN 2BR APT SHIBUYA/EBISU

Large, fully renovated modern 2BR 90m2 apt in the heart of central Tokyo. Big rooms & space rare in Tokyo w/ cozy furniture & balcony w/ spectacular views of Tokyo & its landmarks. Well loved property big enough for families & groups of up to 6-8pax.

THE SPACE:

With Tokyo & Japan becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations in recent years, it has become increasingly difficult to find hotel accommodation that is well located, SPACIOUS, good value for money & able to house large groups. Not to mention modern & cozy at the same time!

If that is what you’re looking for, then we believe that our apartment situated in Shibuya w/ access to Ebisu & Daikanyama Stations is the right place for you! To better imagine: Shibuya is where the infamous Large Pedestrian Crossing (think Lost in Translation) is located! It is the center of Modern Japanese Culture & our apartment has easy access to transport, restaurants, convenience stores, groceries & nightlife.

This newly renovated actually 105m2 apartment of which 90m2 is for your use is an extremely well loved, personally furnished apartment by someone who has lived in Japan for over 13yrs & is only being shared due to expatriation taking us out of the country most of the time. Hence our wanting to share this beautiful space with you all!

The 90m2 space for use includes:

2 Large Bedrooms (Master Bedroom has large window w/ view of Tokyo)

Large Living Room (with large windows along entire wall w/ view of Tokyo & it’s Landmarks) w/ Sofa Bed and can seat 8-10pax comfortably

Spacious Fully Equipped Kitchen with 4 burner stove, Nespresso Machine, toaster, microwave, hot water pot, utensils, cooking condiments at your disposal w/ Dining Table inside

Modern Bathroom outfitted w/ washing machine and the Shower Room also has an electronically operated bathtub in the deep Japanese -Separate Toilet w/ remote control bidet

Large Balcony taking up entire length of apartment

-Lots of Storage Space during your stay

This size of apartment is a rare find in Tokyo & is perfect for the traveler that wants space, modernity & character at the same time. It can comfortably house 6 people & accommodate up to 8pax MAX w/ the use of air mattresses we also have on hand.

Travel for us is a passion & the apartment is filled w/ hundreds of Travel Guides, mementos from trips, Books on Art & Entertaining that you are welcome to enjoy during your stay.

Can we mention again the BEAUTIFUL VIEW that the apartment has? You can enjoy spectacular views of Tokyo & it’s landmarks from the windows or while having a coffee/drink on the balcony where you can easily see Tokyo Tower, Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Syktree and Tokyo Bay all in one glance. With such a view you are in Tokyo yet feel at home too.

We cannot share enough the love we have for our apartment & the beautiful times & memories we have made here & hope that you will experience the same as well!

THE NEIGHBORHOOD:

SHIBUYA-Bright, fun, flashy, trend-setting, iconic, spectacular, Shibuya is a must-see&do destination for any traveler to Tokyo. Famous the world-over for being the epicenter of Tokyo youth culture (made famous by the likes of Gwen Stefani and the movie “Lost in Translation”), Shibuya is a feast for the senses. At its heart is Hachiko Crossing, where travellers stop for their “Lost in Translation” photo op moment, 109 Department Store, where anybody who is anybody on the cutting edge of fashion shops, and the transport hub of Shibuya Metro Station. In between are restaurants, cafes, bars, and people-watching that could occupy one for hours, if not days.

DAIKANYAMA-Within a stone’s throw of Shibuya lies the chic, sophisticated, fashion-forward, design-oriented Ebisu/Daikanyama. Wheras Shibuya is the playground of Tokyo pop culture aficionados, Ebisu/Daikanyama is its upmarket counterpart, replete with cool cafes, idiosyncratic boutiques, local cult fashion labels, a weekly farmer’s market, watering holes to while the nights away. Having resisted the spread of major franchises and chain stores, Daikanyama retains a unique character and is the neighborhood where locals flock to refresh their seasonal wardrobes and lifestyle accessories while drinking coffee at the myriad cafes along the way.

Our property is located at the intersection of Shibuya, Daikanyama, and Ebisu, with a large supermarket, 4 convenience stores, and several restaurants within half a block’s distance. The area is pedestrian and bike-friendly, with a lot to see and do whether shopping, eating, or sightseeing is on your itinerary. Just go out the door and Tokyo’s wealth of sights is available in an instant!

THINGS TO NOTE:

All the guests will receive detailed information before arrival on how to check-in smoothly. We are flexible and depending on the time we can arrange to have our concierge meet you personally to give a tour and answer any and all questions. Alternatively, we can give you details on how to access the apartment through a designated mailbox and code.

“Known for his enormous contribution to the canon of great art in the 20th century, Pablo Ruiz y Picasso (1881—1973) is one of the masters of Modernism. Examining the significance of the six women who were inspirational to his artistic development, Picasso: The Artist and His Muses is the most significant exhibition of Picasso’s work ever presented in Vancouver. Beginning in early 20th-century Paris, the exhibition takes the visitor on a journey through the lives and personalities of Fernande Olivier, Olga Khokhlova, Marie-Thérèse Walter, Dora Maar, Françoise Gilot and Jacqueline Roque, who were all principal figures in Picasso’s personal life and strongly influenced the development of his career. Picasso’s innovations in painting, drawing, print and sculpture are conveyed through recurring motifs such as the seated woman and reclining nude. The exhibition presents major works that dramatically altered the course of European art history.” ( website) #H2HVancouver #PabloPicasso #VancouverArtGallery

The treatment begins with a full body steam followed by a dousing, to prepare you for the relaxation. The pampering begins….laying down on the heated marble bed, Terazi’s therapist initiates a deep body exfoliation using the traditional ‘kese’ mitt and castile soap to cleanse every inch of your body. Immediately after, you will be covered in a cloud of soapy bubbles, to wash away dead skin cells. Your treatment is completed with a cold, refreshing drink, served in The Terazi Tea Lounge.Mix it Up This March at Discovery Primea (18)Mix it Up This March at Discovery Primea (17)A maximum of two people can use this together.  As soon as they turn it on, the steam comes out immediately.  I love steam baths.  A friend of mine suggested this to me so I do this weekly.  In a Hammam treatment it is just the first partMix it Up This March at Discovery Primea (20)
