SHIMOKITA INFO
=============

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.

  • Great location, apartment was exactly as described. Wakana-San was very helpful when I had to deal with a fedex package.

  • Watanas apartment is bang smack in the middle of the ultra trendy Shimkitazwa prefecture a short 2 minute train ride from the Shibuya district.

    The apartment was incredibly easy to locate and within walking distance from a number of awesome bars and restaurants, convenience stores and directly opposite a pharmacy and Doctors surgery.

    The apartment itself was well maintained, clean and presentable. The furniture is modern and comfortable.

  • Wakana's shimo-kitazawa place is a very nice and affordable means for experiencing Tokyo. I would definitely stay there again. It's a block or so from the train and is in a pretty chill neighborhood, a few blocks from some shopping streets etc. Her directions are concise and clear. Have fun in Tokyo! ✌️

  • Wakana is a fantastic host! We loved our experience in this studio! We will most certainly be back! The place is immaculate and the location is amazing! Wakana also gave us great food tips and thrift stores to check out. I highly recommend this place!

  • My partner and I chose Wakana's apartment (1 mins walk trendy Shimokitazwa) for six nights. We found it perfect for our needs. The apartment was secure and quiet. There was little traffic movement, even during the day. The apartment is just about 300 yards from Shimokitazawa station giving immediate access to two lines of the city's fantastically efficient rail network. (Do as the locals do, buy a Suica card to enjoy cheap travel on most networks.) This location is ideal for travel to the Hakone/Mt Fuji area as many trains for Odawara (the gateway to Hakone) stop at Shimo. We were having such a wonderful time that we did not meet Wakana. But her information about local amenities, her email support leading up to our stay, the clarity of her directions and the quality of the accommodation made it easy for us even though we arrived around midnight and found everything as described. If we visit Tokyo again, Wakana's accommodation will be top of our list.

  • Great apartment in a terrific location - just one block from the heart of Shimokita!

    May 2014
  • Loved staying at Wakana's apartment it is a great apartment in a really cool area of Tokyo :) Wakana had some great recommendations and we loved the four nights we spend in the apartment!

    May 2014
  • Oh my goodness! This place was a very cool find. If you are going to stay anywhere in Tokyo, Shimokitazwa is the place to be. This apartment is a short stroll from the station where various trains leave and arrive constantly. A very quick trip to Shibuya. This precinct is full of amazing eateries, bars, great coffee, retro shopping, plenty of big supermarkets and great all round shopping.

    Wakana's apartment was bright and breezy. We found it very clean and spacious enough for 2 people. The Western bed was comfortable (not a fan of the futon in other places) and the kitchen was well equipped. We liked the modern styling of the apartment - and the shower was hot!

    We loved the pictorial directions to the apartment and how to access the key. It was a fool-proof way to find an apartment rather than poorly translated directions.

    We would definitely stay here again and have recommended it to friends who are traveling to Tokyo soon. Very impressed.

  • Wakana's apartment was a great base to explore Tokyo. Wakana provided plenty of useful information about the area prior to our stay. As noted by other reviewers, the mobile internet supplied by Wakana is incredibly valuable when travelling round the city. While the apartment is a short walk to the train station, there was no issues with noise. The shower was always very hot and the apartment well appointed. All in all, the apartment lives up to the reviews and pictures on Air BnB.

    April 2014
  • Perfect location in the trendiest part of Tokyo. Wakana's apartment was ideal for 2 people; clean, convenient with a small fridge, washing machine and small but well sufficient bathroom. Wakana also shared detailed tips and ideas on restaurants, shops and other cultural highlights which was great! I can only give my strongest recommendation to stay at her place!
