Interaction with Guests
I run an English school near the apartment, so I am never too far away in case you need my help with anything.
Shimokitazawa is a very cool area! The pedestrian-friendly lanes are stuffed with shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. You`ll never run out of exploring because there are about 1500 shops in the area. Be sure to see the Shimokita Garage Department, described by Lonely Planet as a "flea market with treasures galore". There are also many vintage clothes shops here and they are generally a bargain!
Make sure you look up the staircases too, because many of the shops are on the second floor of the cute buildings that line the almost traffic-free streets.
There is a 24 hour supermarket "Foodium" right next to the station, so you will always be able to stock up on anything you like at anytime of day or night.
Shimokitazawa station is just a 3 minute walk from the apartment.
Shibuya is 4 minutes train ride on the Inokashira line.
The Odakyu line also runs through Shimokitazawa station and you can get a train to Shinjuku in under 10 minutes.
After taking the train to Shibuya-
Yoyogi park- 10 min walk
Harajuku- 12 min walk
Shinjuku- 7 min (Yamanote line)
Ginza- 15 min (Ginza line)
Asakusa- 30 min (Ginza line)
Akihabara- 25 min (Yamanote line)
Tokyo sky tree- 30 min (Hanzomon line to Oshiage station)
The best way from Narita airport is to get a limousine bus straight to Shibuya, from there you can either get on the Inokashira train line to Shimokitazawa station, or get a 1,500 yen taxi directly to the apartment. If coming from Haneda airport, jump on the train or get a bus into Shibuya and then change to the Inokashira line.

We loved it all! Jay gave us the best instructions to find our way to the apartment and the apartment was cosy and clean. Shimokitazawa is a great place to stay and we would certainly recommend Jay's place!
A highly recommended Apartment and great location. Our 5 days at Sunny Corner Pad in Shimokitazawa was really great and enjoyable. The location is safe and conveniently connected to major subway stations. There are plenty great restaurants, Shops and Supermarkets in the neighbourhood. We especially loved the Udon noodle shop, the noodle was superb! If we could, we would definitely extend our stay in this neighbourhood. Jay's Apartment was clean and neat. Although we did not meet him in person, he left us very clear and precise direction to access his Apartment. It was also easy to communicate with him through email or SMS. He is also very kind and considerate on our request. Jay, Thank you once again for the remembrance stay in Japan!
Great neighbourhood and apartment! Jay was very easy to communicate and his apartment has everything you need for a short stay. The apartment is very bright and waking up with the sunrise was great.
Jay was extremely helpful during the weeks leading up to our arrival. He provided clear explanations as to how to get to the apartment (Japanese addresses are not always the easiest). Everything was exactly as described and impeccably clean. The A/C and washing machine worked flawlessly. We didn't use the portable wifi because we had rented our own but the house wifi was reliable and fast. The location is amazing: Shimokitazawa is such a cool neighborhood with many of shops and restaurants. Feeling at home in Shimokita after long days of sightseeing was probably the highlight of our stay in Tokyo. Proximity to Shibuya and Shinjuku is also great.
The listing is exactly as described and a nice little spot to come home to after a day of exploring. The neighborhood is a real gem, one of the coolest, most laid back spots I've been. I explored a lot of Tokyo and was always glad to go back to Shimokitazawa as it's just so chill.
The area is very safe (as is most of Japan) and I felt very comfortable walking around at night by myself.
The food in Shimokita is great and very affordable!
We had a perfect stay at Jay's Shimokita apartment. Couldn't have picked a nicer part of Tokyo to stay in and it was really well connected to the likes of Shibuya and Shinjuku by public transport. Great restaurants, bars, shops, record stores and overall atmosphere. The apartment was clean and all you could really ask for. Very comfortable and Jay was easy to communicate with. Highly recommend!
We had a wonderful stay at Jay's place in Shimokita! It was perfect for the three of us (two adult's, one 9 year old boy). The neighborhood was exactly what we were looking for, easy access, smallish, great food, music shops, live music venues, vintage stores, great coffee...
every part of the experience exceeded our expectations. The apartment was very clean and well stocked with all the necessities.
Thank you Jay for a great stay! We would definitely recommend the apartment and super location to anyone.
