Enjoy the youth culture in the theatrical performances, music, and secondhand goods shops. A town exactly like a toy box.
Shimokitazawa, commonly called "Shimokita," is on the western side of Tokyo, and although just a small town, it is very popular among young people. In questionnaire surveys about where young people want to live, Shimokitazawa is always one of the top three responses. This is because there are many small theater halls, live houses, bars and secondhand record shops, and this town is known as a trendsetting place for youth culture. With its many narrow alleys that are inaccessible to vehicles, you are given a real sense of adventure while exploring the town on foot, which is a real joy in and of itself.
When it comes to shopping, secondhand clothes shops and shops offering miscellaneous items from the 70s and old animation-themed toys are quite popular. The number of large-scale shops in the area has been increasing, but the nicest feature of this town is the many shops expressing the ingenuity of their young owners, such as those combining a cafe and a record shop or an outlet for small handmade items.
SUGGESTION IN SHIMOKITA
I am sending all my guests food recommendations along with walk through route map with hidden key info before your arrival.

Shoes: As this is Japan, please remove your shoes before entering the house.
Smoking: If you smoke, please do so at one of the designated smoking areas around town. We are sensitive to cigarette smoke so we respectfully ask that you do not smoke inside or even immediately outside of our apartment building.
Noise: This is a quiet neighborhood and we have neighbors in the building, so please keep the noise level reasonable while inside the house.
Very bad experience. The room is very small and make me feel pressure,and the bed sheet is dirty.
Everything was perfect. As my first AirBnB experience as well as going to a new foreign country, Ms. Wakana Ando made me feel really worry free as she gave me simple instructions on how to easily navigate from Narita Airport to the apartment. The apartment had all the accommodations that I required for a four night stay and much more! I would definitely stay here again as it was a really quiet neighborhood while still being readily accessible to any part of Tokyo via Shibuya.
Wakana was very helpful, especially with her guide to eating and drinking in the area. The apartment was great, nice and cozy, great location in trendy Shimo-Kitazawa. Would definitely stay again.
We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. We didn't meet Wakana, but she gave me excellent directions. The apartment is ideally situated in Shima Kanazawa, which is a very trendy little village. We even stumbled upon a great little yoga studio (website hidden) . There are lots of restaurants nearby, and the train to Shibuya is exactly as stated: 1 minute away.
The apartment is cosy, and clean, and very comfortable for a couple. The bedroom can be closed off from the kitchen, so its easier to keep warm in the middle of winter. We had sunny days, and the light streams in to the apartment. We stayed 4 days, and were sad to leave.
I had an awesome stay at Wakana's apartment! I felt really safe in the neighborhood by myself and Wakana was very helpful when I needed to post a parcel home and in organizing a taxi for me to get to the train station when I was worried about getting my luggage there. Shimokitazawa is such a nice area and the apartment is a very short walk from the station which can easily get you to Shibuya and Omotesando areas (good for shopping) as well as other parts of the city. I didn't cook anything in the kitchen but the basics were there if I felt the need. A great value apartment which I would happily stay in again!
Great place. Everything as described. Loved the neighborhood. Really appreciated all the recommendations Wakana gave us and her helping us getting a reservation at one of the restaurants.
Wakana was more than helpful, answered every question I asked very promptly. Perfect location of apartment and the room was presented accurately in the photos provided. The room had everything we needed including washing machine detergent. Perfect space for 2 people, 3 or 4 people would be pushing it! Very close to the station and main restaurant areas. LOVED the pocket WIFI.
