More on Shimokita!

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.

  • Wakana hade The perfect place in a really good area, we feel Lucky that we choose this place. As our first experiance of air bnb we are so happy! Wakana took her time to make sure we Where alright. She helped us out with alot of information and gave some good tipps, for wich we are verry grateful. We would love to recomend her as a host! / Anna

  • Wakana's apartment is perfect! She provides great instructions on how to get there and is really convenient to get to. The apartment is very clean and comfy, and the free mobile wifi is a lifesaver. She's also given us great recommendations for food, shops and other interesting places to check out.

  • This Muji-esque apartment and area were so cool that we stayed here twice during our 3-week Japan trip! Cosy, quiet and super comfortable – we slept very well here! – the compact apartment has more than what most standard Jap hotels offer: your own washer, a well-equipped kitchenette plus fantastic recommendations (email hidden) by Wakana. It's conveniently close to the subway that is just a few stops away from big, rowdy Shibuya or hip, happening hood Sangenjaya. Also, we appreciated having the mobile wifi thingy from the apartment to take out with us. We'd definitely stay here again ... and again.

    June 2014
  • It was very Nice and confortable stay at Wakana, s place .
    She was very help full and kind! It is well located and Nice quite place.
    I ll love to go back at the same place again!

    June 2014
  • Our stay at Wakana's place was great. Good, fully equiped apartment (with great on-the-go wifi) and most importantly on a great location (10 min walk from cool shimokitazawa, 5 min by train from shibuya). Wakana is a very nice host and she responded quickly to any of our questions. Would defenitely stay again and can highly recommend this place when visiting Tokyo.

    May 2014
  • I stayed in two of the apartments Wakana offers, and I highly recommend staying at any of the places she offers. Both apartments were clean and comfortable, and really cute! And the price is great. She really helped me enjoy my experience in Tokyo and get a much better taste for what living in Shimokitazawa is like.

    The other reviews mention the clear instructions, good location and prompt reply, these are all great. The internet worked really well, and when I was sick on the last day she offered a late checkout, which I didn't end up needing but the offer was appreciated.

    Wakana even met me for a sushi lunch in Shimokitazawa, and she is great company!

    I will be staying at her places again, I had a great hassle-free experience, and I think this is what airbnb is about.

    May 2014
  • We had a fantastic few days staying at Wakanas apartment in Tokyo. We were given clear and detailed instructions on how to find the apartment which was a five minute train ride from Shibuya station so perfectly placed. The apartment was spotless and very comfortable, although we didn't meet Wakana she was the perfect host and even booked an early morning taxi for us to the fish market. We would definitely recommend for anyone to stay here and would do again if ever in Tokyo. Thank you so much for your hospitality and a great stay. X

    May 2014
  • Wakana was a lovely host - very helpful and communicative with lots of additional info. The apartment is lovely, very close to transport and has everything you need for a great stay in Tokyo. Would definitely stay here again or at one if her other properties.

    April 2014
  • A very smooth and pleasant travel experience. The apartment is conveniently located (a two-minute walk from the station, short trip to Shibuya, walking distance from the heart of trendy Shimokitazawa), comfortable, clean and well-equipped, and looks exactly as advertised. Wakana handled the booking and key handover flawlessly. I'd definitely stay here again.

    April 2014
  • We had a wonderful 10 day stay at this apartment - it had everything that we needed and the surrounding neighbourhood was amazing. The directions that we were given were very helpful, and the portable wifi was invaluable! We loved exploring Shimokitazawa's cafes, bars, restaurants and vintage shops - we will definitely be back!
