We had a chance to stay in BMJ Shinjuku Okubo during our stay in Tokyo, Japan. We chose to stay in BMJ Shinjuku Okubo because it has the perfect location. It is near convenient stores, Don Quiote, restaurants, train station, and other stores open for 24 hours.

Booking with BMJ Shinjuku Okubo
We messaged BMJ Shinjuku Okubo through Facebook, sent our payment, and we were given specific instructions on how to check in.
Guests can check in with the help of the staff during office hours, but after office hours checking in by ourselves is allowed. We just informed them that we are going to check in late so they gave us instructions.
It is cheaper to book directly with them than any other method.
Entering BMJ Shinjuku Okubo
After we saw the apartment, we followed the instructions that was given to us. The apartment has an industrial design concept. Cool! Perfect for Busy and my boy friends!
We arrived late at night but we easily managed to check in.
Inside BMJ Shinjuku Okubo’s Units
Before going in, we removed our shoes. This is a Japanese tradition that we also follow in the Philippines. By doing this, the room will be kept clean and out of germs from the outside.
Bedroom slippers were provided, but we really do not need these because the room is sparkling clean! I can’t even find any dust particle!
The beds may look like simple, but it was super comfy and soft! So, I didn’t have a hard time sleeping because of these beds.
Even though the space is not as big as a house, the unit has a living room and an office table.
If you need to do any paper work, this desk is available. Some necessities like the television, a mirror, desk lamp, coffee mugs, hair dryer, tissue paper, remote controls, are located here. There is an air-conditioning unit, but we did not use it because it is cold in Tokyo.
This television can be adjusted to be seen at the bed side.
The unit has a kitchen. It may be small, but it has everything guests will be needing. There is a sink, hand wash, liquid detergent, microwave, refrigerator, drinking cups, plates, spoon, fork, etc. Toothbrushes are also located here, near the cups.
Japan has a great reputation when it comes to comfort rooms. They have one of the best comfort rooms worldwide. So, of course BMJ Shinjuku Okubo’s comfort room is at par with the Japanese standards.
The sink can be seen on the top of the toilet bowl, this is a brilliant idea! Whenever you wash your hands, the water will be recycled and will be used whenever you flush the toilet.
A washing machine can be also found in the comfort room. This is very handy for guests who are staying for a few weeks.
Extra tissue papers, laundry basket, drying rack, and towels are also provided.
This is the shower area, hot and cold shower is available.
Japanese loves onsen, so whenever you feel like going into an onsen but you are shy being naked with strangers, and you do not want to go out, you can just use the tub inside.
Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are also provided. You can also notice that there is a dipper, a pail, and a washbasin.
Having visitors are okay, but for your security, this doorbell with cameras is installed.
Of course we had to try it hahahaha we do not have this in our home in the Philippines 😆
This humidifier is also available, it is just beside the bed.
