    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

    Imagine having to relocate from this appartment anywhere else in Tokyo. You would need to sell half of your furniture, because no way you would find the same space appartment twice in a row.

    Them - the master bedroom is MASSIVE! Me in america where all my familys rooms are similar to this for less than 1k a month - 👁👄👁 “WOT?!?!” They still have... way better living concepts than my house though. I swear they think of almost everything in Japan when it comes to comfort.

    This house is dumb expensive for what you're getting. You can literally get a decent place for like 250-275 grand if you're not dead set on living right in the city. Plus, Japan has extremely low lending rates-that said, things depreciate mostly so keep that in mind. This has been ALthe Comment Housing talk.

    I think its criminal to shove people into 'homes' the size of closets. Not to mention the worst thing you can do in an epidemic. I hope Japanese start rethinking this and start knocking down walls and expanding peoples apartments properly. I would never want to visit Japan much less live there if all I came home to was a room and a room the size of my bathroom.

    For that much you could probably rent a big manor/castle in France. This apartment is not worth it at all... It’s kind of big, but doesn’t look that great. I find my modest 1076 square feet apartment a lot nicer IMO. I don’t see the point of renting or owning something that big if it If doesn’t look nice. Post modernists apartments are ugly and look cheaply made. Corporations and businesses find an advantage in marketing modernist apartments, clothes, and furniture; it costs less to be made but can be sold for a lot more than actual beautiful things.

I mean don't get me wrong it's nice and all. but you could probably sacrifice a 20 min drive into the city when you need to be there, and have ten times the space and a real garden. why do you need to be in the city anyway you're a youtuber lol. anyway place looks nice I just think the value is silly.
