I had so much fun writing up this best Airbnbs in Tokyo list, because it’s such an amazing city!
Tokyo has a lot to offer visitors coming into the city, from old temples and top-class shopping to amazing amusement parks and a mouthwatering culinary scene. Japan’s capital city is full of addictive charm; there’s always something new to uncover and different districts to stumble upon and check out!
If you really want to see what the city is all about, then staying in an Airbnb is truly the way to go. You may even get lucky with a view of the Tokyo Skytree.
Not only can Tokyo’s hotels be super expensive (and the hotel rooms are unbelievably tiny!), but staying in a hotel in central Shinjuku means it’ll be harder for you to get under the skin of the city.
Aside from being a much more affordable choice, Tokyo Airbnbs will give you a taste of how Japanese people live, offering the chance to experience local neighborhoods and local life.
This chic little apartment is the perfect place to stay in Tokyo if you're looking for somewhere centrally-located. Staying here means being only a 5-minute walk from the hustle and bustle of Shibuya Station and only 7 minutes away from Shinjuku Station
The Airbnb itself may be a little compact, but it's bright and breezy and spotlessly clean. There's plenty of natural sunlight let in, and a small kitchen so you can whip up some breakfast before heading out to explore the city.
If you're looking for an Airbnb in Tokyo with a bit of style, then this place is the one for you: Think exposed concrete, pared-back design, and houseplants. It's the ultimate in modern minimal Japanese interior design and might make you feel like you're staying in the pages of an actual magazine shoot...not an Airbnb!
The location is ideal if you want a taste of local life mixed with city living. Right near to a metro station in Suginami-Ku, from here it's a straightforward train ride to Shinjuku, and top draws like the Ghibli Museum.
If you thought that all Airbnbs in Tokyo was going to be tiny studio apartments—think again. This funky little pad grabs attention with some seriously sleek style and a large amount of space.
From the moment you enter the gray tiled hallway edged with bamboo plants and elegantly up-lit, you'll be enticed into a laid-back world of calm away from the busy city streets.
Inside, your group of travel buddies can catch up on your days as you sip wine around the dinner table, or...get this...watch a movie on a projector screen on your very own rooftop terrace! Another bonus is that this Airbnb has a super host! Seriously, when can I move in?
Tastefully decorated in a mix of modern style and traditional Japanese aesthetics, I think this Tokyo Airbnb is actually a really good choice for first-time visitors to the city. This apartment is also fully equipped with free pocket WiFi so you can have easy access to anything online while you're out and about.
Its location in the heart of Shibuya makes getting around to many of Tokyo's top sights a breeze. Some of them you can even get to on foot from here, so you won't have to contend with the metro in rush hour (it can be pretty crazy!). However, if you want to take the metro you are only a 5 min walk away from Shibuya Train Station.
Not only that, but you will get a taste of what it is like to live in a traditional Japanese house—there's tatami flooring, sliding doors, and even a Japanese style bath! Did I mention that there's a private terrace included too? Dreamy.
A small but well-designed studio, this Airbnb is a great choice if you're traveling to Tokyo with your partner. Yes, the space might be a little small, but that's just how things are in this huge urban sprawl! Just think of it as living like a local.
And what this apartment lacks in size, it makes up for in convenience and style too. It's located right near to the very romantic landmark that is the Tokyo Tower and the all-important Tokyo Station. This studio is also conveniently located in the Hanami Spot where you can see a beautiful view of the Sakura cherry blossoms and is a 3-minute walk from Daimon Station.
With its new fixtures and fittings and spotless cleaning standards, there's not much not to love about this place!
Look no further than this Tokyo Airbnb if you want to stay in a traditional Japanese style house. This home is the cutest combination of traditional architecture with up-to-date touches that will make your stay totally memorable. This house also has private rooms with double beds and a washing machine (which is hard to find in Airbnbs).
The house is like living in an anime movie—think the house from My Neighbor Totoro, but in the city instead. Super cute.
Instagram fanatics won't be able to stop snapping pictures of the tatami-clad living room, which is complete with sliding wooden wall partitions, walkways, and a very Japanese kitchen.
The location is tucked away from the center of the city but still on the crucial Yamanote Line and close to the hub that is Ikebukuro. It's a beautiful quiet residential area!
Houseplants, wood ceilings, and exposed concrete floors...this Tokyo Airbnb is the cool city hang-out that you've always dreamed of. It's not surprising then that it's also located in one of the trendiest areas of the city: Shimokitazawa.
Surrounded by all the independent coffee shops, vintage boutiques, and record shops that line the lanes of the area, this apartment is ideal if you want to hang out with hipsters. This house is also walking distance from the Shimokitazawa subway station.
There's enough space to sleep up to eleven people across three bedrooms, so if you're traveling with a few friends—or maybe even as a family—staying here makes perfect sense.
