  • Yeah if you have the money money, if money was no object.

  • Yes, this apartment ticks every box you could possibly want it to take, if you ever find yourself living in Japan odds are you're gonna be renting an apartment with the average cost of an apartment in Tokyo costing about 100,000 years or $1000 per month.

  • But what if you had a blank check to live in the apartment of your dreams last month?

  • My good friend Alex who runs a luxury real estate company in Tokyo took us around $20,000 per month apartment in Central Tokyo which came with four bedrooms and even a secret rooftop garden.

  • Today though we're going on a tour of an apartment that not only cost more at $25,000 but it's designed for a single resident.

  • Uh I'm not really sure how it could be more expensive but be aimed at a single person.

  • So let's go and find out and see how it justifies that utterly ludicrous price tag.

  • Well it's good to see you again, Alex and scotty of course, yeah, it's great to see you chris munching around the boat, Alex is the founder of real estate and luxury real estate company and every couple of months he likes to take me to an absurd apartment and make me feel depressed.

  • Isn't that right, Alex that is right.

  • Did you like the last place I took you to idea?

  • We went to a $20 apartment in Harajuku last time but surely you haven't got anywhere that is as ridiculous as that place was, You'd be mistaken.

  • What is that?

  • This is the ultimate apartment for Tony Stark.

  • Alright, this is Tony Stark's apartment.

  • If he had one in the middle of Tokyo, this is actually a one bedroom apartment, one bedroom, this is a one bedroom apartment and is actually the largest one bedroom apartment and most expensive in all the band.

  • Okay, lets go and check out this absolutely ridiculous looking bachelor pad $25,000 a month.

  • Mhm The apartment we're looking at today is situated in Shibuya about as central as you can get in the Tokyo area and helping us film the apartment once again is fellow Youtuber charlotte who will also be looking at an $8 million Tokyo house.

  • Be sure to check it out after our tour of the bachelor pad.

  • So at the entrance of what is probably the craziest apartment, one bedroom apartment in all of Tokyo.

  • Probably all Japan.

  • The front door's glass.

  • You can actually see into the apartment, but I'm guessing you can't use the elevator unless you've got a key right.

  • You're absolutely right.

  • You actually need a key to get into the elevator and get up the elevator.

  • Okay.

  • So yes, I've noticed there's an air conditioning unit for the entrance alone for this little tiny room.

  • Yes.

  • An air conditioning unit and that is a pretty heavy duty 12.

  • That's better air conditioning than most apartments in Japan just for this one little room.

  • So you're ready to see the rest of this again.

  • I'm not ready now.

  • Let's go to that school anyway.

  • Their background.

  • Mhm.

  • Feel the temperature change.

  • Did you get it?

  • What is the first thing you have to do when you get into a Japanese apartment or house, have a drink gin joint?

  • Yes, But right before that there's something you need to do to take your shoes.

  • Exactly.

  • Take your shoes off.

  • Very good point.

  • So where do you put these shoes on the floor like an or in the closet or something or how about interview walking shoe closet?

  • I didn't realize it was gonna be that big.

  • I knew there was gonna be a closet, but I thought I'd be like, he would end there not be a whole room.

  • Yeah.

  • Good God, They fit perfectly.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah.

  • You have a little, you have a little space on the left and right.

  • Why do people need this machine space shoe closet?

  • Like I've got two pairs of shoes at best.

  • You probably need another 48 pairs to fit this place.

  • Just makes me feel inadequate.

  • Hopefully the rest of the problem won't do that.

  • Yeah.

  • So you step in through this hallway, go right past the first of four toilets and you are in this insane living room.

  • Oh my God, look at the views.

  • We've got three different animals.

  • You've got, you've got Tokyo Tower over there.

  • Yeah, punggye Hills.

  • I mean that is one hell of a view and one hell of an echo as well.

  • That's how big it is.

  • Listen to the echo that gives you a sense of scale.

  • Now.

  • I just want you to imagine something.

  • All right, so you are the head of a Middle Eastern oil company, right?

  • You come over to you, come over to Japan, right, where do you live?

  • You want to live here?

  • Exactly.

  • This is the place for the kings of the Middle Eastern oil companies.

  • What?

  • I can't become a king of the Middle Eastern oil company.

  • Can we have a like that where I can actually live here?

  • So I want to show you by the way, just what you get when you've paid 2.5 million yen or about $25,000 for an apartment.

  • Everyone you can come over here.

  • This is where you would put your tv, right?

  • If you look really closely this is actually a wifi router.

  • This is built in and you have free wifi here Free Wifi for $25,000.

  • What a bargain.

  • Just come and take a look at this.

  • And as you can see this is absolutely insane.

  • This area is zones not for high buildings.

  • So this is one of the highest buildings over here, which means that you have pretty much other than that guy unobstructed views of most of the most populous parts of Tokyo.

  • How would you show this in a real estate matter with real estate terms?

  • I would say that you have unmatched views of downtown Tokyo and you can see what it looks like right now in the daytime, but just imagine what it's going to look like at night because you have a punky hills, you have Toronto mon hills over there as well and you also have that large red and white popsicles, Tokyo tower, just unbelievable views at night, especially, so there's one more thing I have to show you just in this kitchen area.

  • We step through here, we go to a little balcony, right?

  • And if you just follow me through, step right around here, you'll come and you'll see there's actually a second entrance over here.

  • That's not what I wanted to show you.

  • That's not important.

  • What is important is So you have all this garbage from this crazy party that you just threw, where do you put it?

  • Right?

  • Normally in a Japanese apartment, you would have to take it all the way downstairs and put it in a big garbage room that's in a nice building, you could just maybe throw it off the balcony, Christie, throw it off the balcony, the peasants to the peasants below.

  • But if you are actually a normal person that lives here, you would step over here to this guy right here, the garbage storage room, you actually have your own personal garbage room which the guy that cleans the place every once in a while and what is your plants will actually come and empty for you periodically.

  • So that's what you get for this kind of money.

  • So we just saw what the kitchen looks like with a massive living room looks like you went outside.

  • Just imagine, okay, what's up those stairs?

  • Why are there stairs?

  • Where does he go to heaven?

  • The steroids that happens.

  • You're gonna see that in a moment.

  • But before we show you that I have to show you this.

  • So you had your big party, you had all your diplomat friends over, you had all your crazy Youtuber friends come over and you just your slush, you need a place to crash.

  • You got everybody out.

  • It's already three in the morning.

  • What do you do?

  • You go and you pass out.

  • So let me show you where you pass out.

  • Come on over here.

  • Yeah go through here.

  • We have another big tour.

  • Open it up.

  • What do you find?

  • You'll see what is?

  • Probably, I would say the biggest bathtub I've ever seen in a japanese apartment.

  • This is basically a bellagio sized jacuzzi right next to your bedroom and it is absolutely massive.

  • You want to show them how big it is And yeah, go for it.

  • Absolutely well you could fit mm I mean you could probably fit 23 people, you could definitely fit two or three people in the climate right next to show.

  • Just go, yeah this is quite spacious in here.

  • I will say though there is no tv that is one downside to this place.

  • I mean you've got the view out the window.

  • Exactly.

  • Who needs a Tv when you have that view of Tokyo tower again.

  • Yes, you can actually see Tokyo tower from your bathtub.

  • It's just like a normal bulb that people use as above.

  • Yeah, this is not just a giant jacuzzi that we can use for fun.

  • You know.

  • And you're gonna see why this is the normal bath.

  • All right, right there.

  • There is something bigger than this nicer.

  • So you're all washed up.

  • You want to go back to bed.

  • What do you do open up this store and you are in your massive bedroom massive for japanese centers at least.

  • But you can see the carpet is actually made from the same material as to Tommy.

  • So it's nice and feels rough under your feet.

  • I wonder what it was.

  • It does feel kind of rough socks then shredded.

  • So you have like a big beds there.

  • I would have a big bed right over here overlooking that other balcony which you probably don't even notice until now.

  • Yes, just three balconies in this.

  • And one of them is in the bedroom, your secret balcony.

  • Secret balcony that you're having a house party here.

  • You can sort of slip off your secret balcony.

  • Let me drink your drink smoke.

  • Look over, take your town.

  • Yeah.

  • And then roll into your king size bed, one of the things.

  • So we showed you the walk in shoe closet.

  • Of course you have to have a walk in closet for a place like this.

  • If you follow me.

  • Yeah, if you follow me, you can keep on following me and keep on following me.

  • You'll see.

  • We're actually in the closet right now.

  • Like look how big it is.

  • Yeah.

  • I don't think it's really gonna show on film, but this is about the size of saving on kitchen, maybe in his apartment.

  • You can have another bedroom in here if you want it, you wouldn't be a fun bedroom, but it can definitely fit a bedroom in here.

  • Absolutely.

  • So we've seen the living space, we've seen the sitting room three or 400 balconies overlooking Tokyo what is up the staircase, Alex?

  • You've been very elusive this whole time.

  • And that is the only thing I've cared about since walking through that door because it's quite imposing staircase.

  • Yeah, it's amazing design.

  • So why don't we find out what?

  • They can't beat the free wifi?

  • Surely not fucking hell, What is it?

  • I think you explained it perfectly.

  • Well, that is the reason I said that the bath below is not really for that interesting.

  • I thought the four person Jacuzzi downstairs.

  • Yeah.

  • What is that?

  • This is this is a massive jacuzzi.

  • Probably maybe five or six people into their I mean in the previous video we did the $20,000 apartment.

  • Yes, we had a kind of nice outdoor garden.

  • Right?

  • This one it's better it's way better because look at the view, you can't beat the view, you can't beat the view.

  • And also it's a little easier to use this one.

  • And that one was just a jungle.

  • This is really a nicely trimmed garden.

  • Alla vera.

  • Alla vera is, yes, this is actually waiting for.

  • There's rosemary.

  • So let's come out over here to the bathroom and the toilet's going to say hello to me.

  • Hello, toilet just opened up for me and chris you want to come on into the bathroom?

  • No, no.

  • All right, well, I'll see you anyway.

  • So yeah, here's that's a big old oh my God, let's leave it as well.

  • It's more like a k It is a cavernous, large piece of porcelain and by the way, it lights up, I'm not going to show you right now, but it's up to this video.

  • To the next level bubble bath.

  • It is seriously adding the views.

  • This would be a really good place replying Yeah.

  • Do you think they need to design this floor with kind of party in mind?

  • Of course, yeah.

  • So that's the thing.

  • So this building actually has one unit per floor and each of the other units is almost exactly the same as the first floor that we're on.

  • This is the only one with its own second living room and Jacuzzi on the roof with views of rosemary.

  • But all of a sudden I realized why the $25,000 might be justified with a number like that.

  • A joke.

  • But you can kind of see why it costs that much.

  • Now we come to this floor, the first floor, impressive.

  • Good views, but not worth 25,000.

  • And you can't hear seal this, see the views of the rosemary and herbs and it becomes quite clear.

  • All right.

  • So we just saw the bathroom.

  • Right.

  • It was pretty insane.

  • That's the second bathroom and one bedroom.

  • I can't think of any other one bedroom apartment or house or anything with two bathrooms.

  • But are you ready for the ultimate part of this apartment?

  • Ready?

  • You already can't be better than the free wifi and education.

  • Yeah.

  • Two free wifi and free wifi.

  • Let's just go past the third sink.

  • Yes.

  • This place actually has three sinks here.

  • Is the third one right over here.

  • Not enough.

  • Not at all.

  • Come on.

  • Follow me.

  • Right.

  • And you will see probably one of the nicest rooftop terraces in all of Tokyo.

  • Not only by the size.

  • Not only about how square it is and how you can fit probably seating for 20 people out here.

  • Right, But just the views.

  • The unbelievable views.

  • This is it.

  • Yeah.

  • This is beyond amazing.

  • How far does your balcony stretch around.

  • Yeah, you can see right over here actually.

  • It goes right over here.

  • You have a morning jog, you could, you could look at this, right?

  • Look at the size of it.

  • One of the things this year, obviously a lot of people have been locked down, can't leave their apartments.

  • We had it in Japan for about two months.

  • But if you had a rooftop, a rooftop like this, you could do a morning run.

  • You could, I'm not going to follow him.

  • Mm.
