NOTIFICATION SQUAD: Take a shot every time someone compares a single room to the size of their apartment. So what's the verdict? Good value for money given the private roof oasis and location in the heart of Harajuku? Or simply overpriced mayhem? A HUGE thanks to Alex for showing us around - if you want to explore the amazing properties on his website check out: i-home.tokyo Feel free to drop him a line if you have any questions about moving to Tokyo! - And as for me, it's back to the ironing board.

Chris you could always find 9 friends to join you in living there and each of you pay $2k or if you think it would work have 19 friends join you in that place at $1k each. of course bathroom use might get a bit complicated(well could always water the shrubs I suppose. lol) but there are two of them so it might be ok with 9 people. still its an idea if they would go for it to have a bigger living space in a nicer part of town with a great view. lol

Living here for one year will cost as much as putting half down on a nice sized home where I'm suppose to move in Japan (Omachi/Kizaki). Rather buy than rent like that!

not trying to hate, just stating facts. i live in nyc and have a two bedroom, with a concierge, on 45th and 10th for $2,600. yes, this place is bigger than mine but its not eight times bigger and its not walking distance from times square. 20 racks a month plus $120,000+ to move in is absolutely insane!!! also the "garden" just looked like shrubbery.

It is very common there to build a house there with few floors and rent out 1-2 floors above you. You living on the ground floor and rents are paying for everything in your life. You can build your house yourself. Japanese houses are very simple.

Ok i bought my swedish apartment privately for about 5500-6000 US dollar, renovated it for 6000-7000 US dollars. And my rent is about 250 US dollar per month for a 42 square meter apartment, with electricity, Wifi included into it also. And i feel like my apartment is "semi" luxury.

As a wheelchair user, I'm realizing that even a $20k per month apartment is built with small doors, tiny corridors, stairs that don't really need to be there... into an accommodation that would render wheelchair living quite poorly maneuverable. This is quite astonishing to me. Not only that space consciousness is still so present in a home for which traditional limitations don't really apply, but also that accessibility seems to be such an elusive type of luxury for the country as a whole when looking at it from the outside.

From my limited understanding japan doesn't have the best history when it comes to accommodating disable people and many parents of kids with disabilities send them off to hide them in disability centers that had lots of human right violations. I think its getting better so thats something.

im guessing that is a business ort of rental space? cause 20,000$ a month makes no sense unless u own Huawei or some big tech company that makes u shitloads of cash every second... and even then... ud be better buying your own place at that price range.... each month..

$1000/month is expensive? In NY state it's close to that in low pop cities. NYC is, what, 1/3 the size of Tokyo? And a small apartment there is like $3,000/month. And the big ones? Forget monthly rent altogether. That's for plebs. The expensive apartments in NYC you just buy flat-out, for like 10, 15, 20 million.

Rent money = wasted money. Anyway, can't imagine why people would even want to live in a city. We're building a nice big but cozy house in our municipality wiith a very big garden where no cars pass (except for people who live there), we have this huge view over the fields behind us where there are no houses and all that while we're less than a km from the centre so everything is close yet we don't have any noise at all. So why live in a stinking place with lots of noice, pollution and all while you can have this?

The kitchen itself (not the grand room adjacent to it) was so much less luxurious than the rest of the apartment. I guess people who could afford such an apartment would not cook, but they might hire a chef.

That was very ... depressing !!! In Greece for that amount of money you can get 10 apartments like this one and we will throw in a 1000 times better view. I knew that Tokyon apartments were microscopic but always assumed that the luxury ones will be much bigger than this. I obviously completely underestimated Tokyo's desperate need for space. Love the video keep up the amazing work.

From the talk of who usually moves in to these types of apartments, it would seem no one ever actually pays the rent themselves. They’d be company homes. As in company officers would have these as incentive, in the same way company cars work. Or the embassy pays for them since they can’t have their diplomats living in shoeboxes. 20k a month is nothing to a government

So, this is a serious question to anyone who is from or living in Japan right now. If your willing to drop 20,000 dollars (which if my math is correct would mean 200,000 yen) a month on an apartment, wouldnt it be much more wise to save that money and purchase a house? Or is obtaining a house in Japan far more difficult then obtaining a apartment? Serious answers please.
Ethan Quirk
Ethan Quirk 13 日 前
Its 2,000,000 Yen and its likely not usually the people living in them who pays the rent but whoever they work for. Outright buying any sort of property is notoriously difficult in Japan and in Tokyo, land is one of the most valuable commodities. For comparison, London is the largest city in Europe with ~9,000,000 million people living across 1,572 square km (slightly bigger than New York too). Tokyo has ~14,000,000 people across 2,194 square km. You have to fit in 6,381 people for every square km of space in Tokyo. There isn’t a lot of space for houses in the city and what there is are stupid expensive

I now understand why people from Japan are so exited and surprised about our lifestyle and a lot and lot space here in Australia. My house is average size (110 m2)with 3 bedroom toilet and laundry. In Japan this size is enormous. Interesting to see how differently people living in different country.Even in Europe an average flat is 50 m2 or little bit more and that is not a big place.
