I've made contact with Gena re the Airbnb place ... we'll see where that goes ...
the housingjapan place ... but they're worth contacting as they have nice stock in good locations.
Are you saying that they may have other apartments that are NOT shown on their website ? or just to contact re true availability of this place ?
the housingjapan place ... I think it's a good one if really available
The problem is that the HousingJapan apartment has no accompanying description, no amenities list and no reviews to give you a reality check so I try to look very closely at the pics … I’m curious if you think that I’m a total whackjob or if the following is somewhat reasonable …
Let’s give it the benefit of the doubt and say the furniture is better quality that I originally.
The kitchen area doesn’t seem like it has enough space to place a cutting board and a plate or two.
I’m looking at the bed and scratching my head as to whether it’s comfy or not … hmmm.
Once again, I’m not loving that bathroom sink area at all.
Re the shower, do you think that showerhead can be positioned so that you can take a shower without having to hold the showerhead ? I’m not sure but I’m thinking no … cuz if I have to hold the showerhead to water myself, put it down (or between my legs) to soap up, and then grab the showerhead to rinse etc, I totally HATE that ! I actually have that same question re the Airbnb place too but I think it’s fine.
Bedroom clearly has no closet / drawers for clothes. Am I just a total whiner or isn’t it normal that if you are going to be someplace for a MONTH or more that maybe you may want to unload your luggage and put your clothes in a closet and/or drawers ? If I was here for 3 days, fine … but these places are for month-long rentals minimum !
The layout picture does show some tiny spaces in yellow (is one a Shoes Closet ???) but no pics of those spaces … yet they can waste 5 pics repeatedly showing you the same bed pillows in the bedroom and that real useful close-up shot of the 4 books on the bedroom table. I’m always amazed at just how incredibly stupid and not-helpful most listings’ pictures are in helping you fully visualize an apartment.
Do you agree somewhat ? or am I in my own private Idaho
Part of the compromise is that this is mostly a daytime neighborhood so while I can send you to nice izakaya and restaurants, your late night drinking will require a short ride.
A short ride is fine ... I think ... and it's not like I'm going out drinking til 3am on a daily basis.
But if I'm going to need a ride at night from this place ... and I'd have a long walk from the Airbnb place, then I'm seriously considering shipping over my own prototype version of this planche volante extraordinaire ... yep, Chambo's got one and I'm actually pretty darn good on it ! ... and I figure it's a great way for Chambo to make a super impressive entrance into the Tokyo scene ...
Good idea ? think it's legal ? could I get a sweet little Chambo exception, if not ?
