Tokyo has some of the best culture in the world, like crazy but beautiful fashion choices, streets that will cause you wanna eat straight from the floor and one of the best cuisines in the world.

Although Tokyo has really great hotels to offer, it can be a little expensive and not for everyone’s pocket, that’s where Airbnb comes into place. I have brought you our top 15 Airbnb apartments in Tokyo.

Now, I get it, when you imagine yourself an apartment in Tokyo you think about filthy living quarters, well it’s not the case at all… just keep reading and I guarantee you’ll be suprised.

This guide is divided to 4 different areas as Shinjuku is our most favorite one for the people who come to see Tokyo for the first time.

So here is our top 13 Airbnb in Tokyo:

Katie’s apartment was amazing in so many ways. It was super clean, had great amenities, very English-friendly. The best thing about the apartment is probably its location, as we had no trouble at all commuting to our point of interest by trains. A lot of amazing places are also within walking distance. Such a positive experience!”
