  • 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

  • This makes me especially happy that I live in a 75 m2 apartment in Vienna, Austria (also not a bad city) with a 15 m2 balcony, for €550 a month. But I guess real estate agents deserve to be rich.

  • 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.

    • in absolutely no realm of your imagination should a lock change ever cost more than like 700 bucks. what are they replacing is with fucking gold door knobs you get to keep? by that same logic, this apartment is worth about 2,000 a month. sounds about right to me. just knock of a zero...

  • 15:50 Interesting that racism is more or less defend and accepted just because its in Japan. If I would act like that in Sweden, you know changing rates for foreigners, openly denying them contracts etc, I would be lynched. On the other hand - its their country, their culture and they have the right to make their own decisions. Good for you, Japan! (Yeah, the west, esp Europe could learn a thing or two from this, hence all of the multiculti bs going where other cultures are valued more than the native ones....)

    • @Piroclanidis Exactly, people here dont seem to be using their brains, I mean even in the U.S; in Manhattan the price per square feet is 1,400 dollars, the apartment shown in this video is easily 200sqm which is about 2100 sqft.....you can do the math lol !

      PiroclanidisPiroclanidis6 kun oldin
  • Damn, guess most of the price is due to location, cause the apartement itself doesn't look all that impressive except for the big living room area.
