Spend the Night at the Bat Cave Apartment

Accommodation Tokyo Shibuya Greater Tokyo

This unique apartment is available for short-term rental via the popular independent lodging website, AirBnB. Parker, an expat music producer and owner of the apartment, has filled the space with all types of Batman-themed goods to create what he likes to call “Mr Wayne’s Tokyo residence.”

Located just one minute away from the bright lights of Shibuya Crossing, the studio apartment has received glowing reviews from visitors, who are impressed not only with the convenient location, but also the fun atmosphere created by all the unique furnishings.

There’s a huge king-sized double bed, a rare find compared to other rentals in the area, which comes complete with matching his and hers Batman pillows.

The apartment also offers the fastest model of portable pocket WiFi, kept safe in the hands of a faithful Wolverine Bearbrick until you arrive.

Some of the rare prints in the apartment include an officially licensed poster by artist Dave Perillo (left) and a hard-to-find hand-printed silkscreen Batman print by Tim Doyle that glows in the dark (right).

In the middle of the room there’s the entertainment suite, with a 40-inch television and a coffee table filled with manga magazines and hundreds of Batman comics. There’s also a Sony PlayStation 4 with four controllers and six games, including Metal Gear Solid V, Pro Evolution Soccer 2016, Batman: Arkham Knight (of course!) and hard-as-nails hit Bloodborne.

The apartment includes a bathroom, washing machine and a compact kitchen area complete with a bar fridge, sink and a hot-plate for cooking. Although, with hundreds of restaurants right on your doorstep, you probably won’t be doing much cooking anyway!

Available from ¥9,000 per night, plus a ¥4,501 cleaning fee, this has to be one of the most unique places to lay your head right in the heart of Tokyo.
