    NOTIFICATION SQUAD: Free wifi in a $25,000 apartment?! What a bargain!! I must say having gone around some of these absurd apartments with eye watering price tags, while they're intriguing to tour, I seldom walk away feeling envious. Having lived in three small apartments across Japan in the last 8 years I'm weirdly content living in a small space. That being said, a huge thanks again to the mischievous Alex for taking us on a whirlwind tour of a luxury Tokyo apartment!

      In response to Mr.Mori's remarks on human rights riolations at the Japanese Olympic Games, I wanted to convey the fact that there are injustices and human rights riolations against one examinee by a more serious authority in Japan,and that there is a judicial crisis.😊
       Three years ago in Japan, a staff member who was the organizer of the bar examination ,Ministry of Justice staff arbitrarily exposed the scores of the examinees' primary exams and the contents of almost all the subjects of the secondary exam treatises to the net , and relentlessly instigated the victim for bad taste. It was an incident in which he continued to perform manipulations to reduce the victim's impression and dropped it with personality attacks such as discomfort and death.
       In addition, in order to eliminate the anxiety , the organizer uses a mobile phone to monitor the victim on a daily basis by vandalism, eavesdropping, voyeurism, grasping the location information, and continues to incite suicide relentlessly for the destruction of evidence on the net. By continuing to do so for the examinee, The Troll continues to incite suicide against victim or by unnaturally sticking and manipulating the impression, it interferes with the examination and   the victim continues to fall into the examination. ..
      It's like a prosecutor keeps trapping an innocent person by self-protection, and there was a serious and serious human rights violation.
      You may not be able to see it from overseas, but please see the comment section of the 1st TheXvid of former Japanese prosecutor Nobuo Gohara and the official TheXvid comment section of Tokyo Metropolitan Govermet for details.
      Even now, the handle names of the examinees, which are inconvenient for the Ministry of Justice staff, are constantly called by trolls and the trolls call another persons as the handle names of the examinees , continue to incite suicide against them,and make operations that reduce the impression of them in the examination thread of 5channel“予備試験スレ ”which is the exchange net bullet in board of the examinees.
       There are Ministry of Justice staff in Japan that are not necessary in a society that only keep pulling the examinees' legs.
       I've never heard of any other crazy exam where the exam organizer desperately interferes with one student's exam. Moreover, this test is a test to select Japanese lawyers. In this respect, Japan's judiciary lags behind the other contries.

    Oddly enough, I was hit by a ping-pong ball from a 20-th floor penthouse, it didn't hurt, but I asked myself for a decade WTF happened until someone kind enough told me there's a penthouse in that building and they liked to play ping-pong there and many people had been hit by their balls as far as 2 blocks away, 'cause apparently the wind carries the balls quite far.

    Chris, I cannot put into words how much I appreciate your attitude in these videos of things normal people could never afford. Rather than rubbing how expensive something is in the viewer's face like some "influencers" do, you come alongside the viewer in being flabbergasted at the gross excess of some of these places. Sure, this is a nice apartment, but that's a LOT of home to manage, and it's not like you'd have much privacy with having cleaners come through regularly.
    You come off as very genuine, and that alone is rare to find these days. Keep up the good work. :)

    I'm a Tokyo resident and I think this is a rip-off. It's expensive just because it's big. Shibuya is far from ideal place to live in. The view from the windows is awful and the interior design is cheap and boring. Let me tell you, Japanese rich people live in much better places than this.

    • Namelikeanyother
      Namelikeanyother 11 months ago

      @Leyren What specifically was amazing about it? I've seen better places for even less than $3k. Not in Tokyo obviously but still, it just doesn't seem luxurious at all.
      For $25k I would expect an apartment that's luxuriously furnished, with a specific artistic style. I would expect exotic woods, better staircase, a better location and some unique architectural features such as granite columns etc.
      If we assume that the rent is calculated with the assumption that the entire price of the apartment will be re-paid in 20 years then this property is worth like $5.5 million? That's... a lot.

      I mean to rent the place for an entire year (assuming my math was right) is $300,000, which is the price of a new home or about a 2 storyish depending on your area. So I mean, it's not bad, but not cheap.

      @Kevin S True. At the time I was thinking more "not bad for an apartment that size in Tokyo" than "oh yeah that's affordable" haha. Still a stupid moment on my part tho.

      Even if that was a yearly rate, you probably need to be in a decent job but then again you are better off owning a small house than renting a big one.

    It would never make sense to pay that amount per month unless you're renting for a month or two (yes, yes. Even then its expensive)

    The last one you reviewed is preferred because the cozy aesthetic appeal. This one had greater location by far, however. Look at that first balcony view and the way it warped around the back.
    The height of the tower and the escapism this one had more to offer.

    Chris, a suggestion: I think you can add tags to your videos so they get featured more often. It's a shame you post such quality content that don't get the number of viewers it deserves.

    this isnt really a place to live in for long periods of time, even for extremely rich people it just isnt logical, for 300.000 dollars a year you can save up that money and buy a house thats 10 times bigger and more luxurious, this place is just to rent out for a month or two and party like hell while on vacation if you have money lol

    Randomness: I just came home to my parents place and heard your voice from the living room. Totally surprised (my parents arent youtube people, or internet people for that matter) I went to check why and realized you are on tv. I was all "I know this man! Ive been following him for years! This is cool!" So congrats Chris, you are shown on a Swedish tv channel right now! 8D
