  • Good morning.

  • A few weeks ago We had a chance to take a look at Tokyo's cheapest apartment and just under $100 a month.

  • And again, we're playing fast and loose with the word apartment as it came with some pretty major caveats that made it questionable as to whether or not it was even really a livable space.

  • It was old, it was raggedy.

  • And you know what?

  • If you want to know more, go check that one out today.

  • I want to show you places being called Tokyo's smallest new apartment And in contrast to the last place, it is very new and it's very neat.

  • Let's go.

  • All right, so this is the one I'm going to be checking out right here.

  • Are you ready?

  • Can you be excitement?

  • Okay, so right now I'm kind of in a gang con or entrance way space, which is small, but it's not bad.

  • I've been in tighter spaces in Japan and uh, I like this place.

  • Okay.

  • We'll take a look at this place completely empty and then see if we can talk to one of the residents and see how they use their space.

  • So this is the entrance or Genk on space right here and they actually got shoe closet right here, wow.

  • You could be, you could be a strip shoe collector with that as well as a little closet space right here and you would probably fit your washing machine right in this space here.

  • It's got the whole hook up for it and everything and then right beside that you have an induction heater and a sink.

  • The landlord let me know that the water isn't hooked up right now so I'm not going to run the water.

  • But the thing that's already caught my attention the most is a lot of these smaller Japanese apartments tend to have something called the unit bath which is like the bath and the sink and the toilet all in the same.

  • They're terrible.

  • But this place seems to have the shower and the washroom separate.

  • This here is the shower, wow, that's actually not terrible.

  • Mhm like this is actually better than most showers you'll find in business hotels here in Japan and the washroom itself is right here.

  • As you can see they have put a lot of effort into making sure that both the washroom in the shower area have a really new and clean fields of them genuinely nicer than washrooms you'll find and a lot of apartments in Japan.

  • But now for the moment of moments, the main room this well this is the main room, it is tiny.

  • In fact, this entire place is something like only nine m square, which means you're likely to find smaller places in Tokyo.

  • In fact, my first apartment was pretty much the size of this room here, I didn't have my own bathroom, it was a shared bathroom but this place comes with some features and benefits that make it very livable and very interesting.

  • So let me show you around and I guess share what's special about this place is just built to be really livable aside from the loft which will take a look at in a second.

  • There are little hangers up here that you can put your clothing on and what not if you want to hang your laundry there's actually this neat little chord here that you can stretch across all the way to the other side boom and you can hang your laundry there like that.

  • Yeah it takes a second to retract the windows, give the place a ton of light.

  • It's got a brand new air conditioner in there, plug here is wired for three outlets as well as land and tv.

  • And then and then what is this?

  • What a green you got here.

  • Okay.

  • Little ventilation to the outdoors, neat.

  • Let's take a peek at the loft.

  • Oh wow, okay.

  • That's really nice.

  • And the windows again just add so much light and it's about its own light.

  • This is very livable.

  • This is what it looks like here.

  • You could probably fit a bed or a thumb there.

  • Top to bottom.

  • Might be a little tight for me diagonally.

  • Uh huh.

  • I figured out I've actually probably put my bed down below anyway.

  • I'd likely set up my bed down there and then used this for more storage or I don't know I saw pictures of one person using a projector to watch movies up in their loft area which I thought was super neat.

  • And even up here on the left, you've got all the necessary light switches and what not nice and the view of the window in this place is actually quite nice to there we go.

  • You know really nice weather today as well.

  • You can hear the birds building is also just as new and beautiful from outside as it is from in this particular one is located in the Meguro ward area in a space known as you Tingey is actually part of a project for cheap housing that they're trying to, how can I put it?

  • They want to provide affordable Housing to help like students and young people are really anybody get a leg up and all of these are located within 10 minutes of the station in major areas like Shinjuku in the metro area, Ikebukuro and stuff like that all throughout Tokyo and I love, the I think the project name is called Cody, which Kuti which is apparently the greek word for cocoon so they want people to be able to come out of like these small spaces and have used their time here to, to grow and develop and I, I know it's kind of nerdy but I love it, I absolutely love the idea of that but I also have managed to set up an interview with one of the residents so let's go see, we can't meet and talk to him and see how he has his place set up.

  • I'm super curious.

  • Also there are no conditions either.

  • You don't have to be a student.

  • You don't have to be of a certain age range.

  • They have tons of non japanese residents as well.

  • If you want to live here, they, I want you to live here.

  • I kind of love that.

  • I think, I think our guys upstairs, I think this is our guy here.

  • Mhm Do you know what Trayvon pull out cello demons.

  • Yeah.

  • Okay.

  • Go point too much today.

  • Yeah.

  • The nuclear stating the McConnell didn't that uh, My story 90 an animal organs need captain off what you know about about this high level, not my lot Simple to zero this name good.

  • Okay, cool.

  • You know more than I know they're not even there.

  • Okay.

  • Scott molecular size yoga now.

  • Yeah.

  • What did it?

  • Oh good.

  • We were, come on, came to the car and massage car game and took off.

  • Uh huh and put in there bond.

  • It's a stick.

  • Hey, mystery.

  • Okay, can you make the skin on my God in the media, I'll go get it there.

  • You know when you know what Toto, No good.

  • And do you know what the psyche and rooftop, but it's called?

  • You see, totally.

  • No, no, she's gone on.

  • There wasn't there mckinney now tonight Price, Come on those innocent marina.

  • Do you know there?

  • You can, uh, somebody nine of the semi to put them where you can uh, do you know some of the most?

  • See you guys.

  • Bye bye.

  • He was a ton of fun, Lots of gratitude for sharing his time and his space also.

  • I think that is my first time to ever see someone having an axle model as a pet.

  • Very interesting.

  • But I realize we haven't talked about cost or anything yet.

  • Okay.

  • Because that's actually one of the really appealing features of this place is that despite being brand new with all brand new showers and toilets and air conditioners, the price is really good.

  • Each of these rooms is only around 70,000 yen.

  • About $650 give or take depending on the area and whether it's in a corner and stuff like that, they can cap out as much as 80,000 yen.

  • But considering that in this area in the Meguro ku area where I am A used place for rent starts at around $1,000 a month and goes much much higher than that for places that aren't this clean and beautiful.

  • That's really not bad at all.

  • In fact it's almost unheard of like I just, I love how much light you can get into this place and if you can live the minimalist lifestyle, it makes moving really easy as well because moving, in Japan can be super expensive.

  • So living in a place like this you could say all kinds of money but I'm just curious about the loft because even coke, he was saying that when he first moved in, he used it a lot, but not as much anymore.

  • I don't know.

  • I think I would use this.

  • Uh Mind you, I also have like a lifted love space that I thought I would use a lot more than I do and now just gets used for Xiaomi send recordings and stuff like that.

  • But look at this, you can't even stand up in here.

  • I guess you would have to live here to know if you really use it.

  • And I would live here.

  • This place is so much nicer bigger and cleaner than my first ever apartment in Japan because I was making Youtube videos back then.

  • That would have been the place to show.

  • But how would you, would you live here?

  • How would you use this law?

  • Would you use the left?

  • I don't know.

  • Let me know in the comments down below.

  • Thank you guys so much for joining us one and I will see you again real soon totally get a post video challenge.

  • Once you can guess calling on this shot right here, I'll post the answer like instagram or twitter or something so you can get it in the comments down below instagram twitter.
