Shimokitazawa is one of Tokyo’s best-kept secrets! Located just 5 minutes from Shibuya and 8 minutes from Shinjuku, the neighborhood has a relaxed feel, and is a popular place for hip Japanese youth and music lovers. It is the place to be if you like the arts, independent music clubs, trendy Japanese boutiques, cozy cafes, and delicious Japanese restaurants. Don’t take our word for it- read our guest reviews to learn about why you will instantly fall in love with this neighborhood!
From Narita or Haneda Airport, the quickest option is to take a bus, which will drop you off right next to Shibuya Station. From there, you can board the Inokashira Train one stop to Shimokitazawa Station. After you make a reservation, we will email you very detailed step-by-step directions so that you can check into the apartment easily.
Other Things to Note
Unfortunately, our landlord does not allow any children in the building younger than 10 years old. Thank you for your understanding.
The following two issues are critically important for you to follow during your stay at the apartment:
Noise - The apartment is very quiet and our neighbors value the peaceful harmonious living that is synonymous with being in Japan. Please refrain from talking loudly near or in the apartment. Especially in the evenings, please keep noise to a minimum.
Trash - The separation of trash and recyclables is very strict in Japan. Please follow the instructions we have provided for you in the apartment for how to properly separate and dispose of the following 4 categories into 4 separate bags:
1. General/Combustible Garbage
2. Plastic Bottles
3. Glass Bottles
We are responsible for our guests staying at the apartment so if there are any noise or garbage violations, we are liable to receive a roughly 100 USD fine (10,000 Japanese yen) for each offense and also run the risk of getting evicted when repeat violations occur.
Please ensure you follow all of these rules while in Japan and if you have any questions about the above, please don't hesitate to ask us for further clarification.
Thank you once again for booking with us and we hope that you have a wonderful stay in Tokyo!
Thank you for a most enjoyable stay in your apartment. The instructions we received made it easy to find. The neighborhood is great and everything we needed was there in the flat including easy to follow instructions. The size of the flat was ok for the four of us. My three teenage kids and myself.
The stay was great! Clean and comfortable. Drivers did not have a problem finding the place. Close to train.
The hosts were very responsive and provided accurate information. The location of the apartment is ideal, very close to all the cool shops, restaurants and bars in hip Shimokitazawa. The apartment is actually BIGGER than it looks and quite spacious by Tokyo terms. We loved it and it was so relaxing to come back and have space to unwind with a glass of wine at the end of a busy day in Tokyo. Everything was clean, well-kept and nicely decorated. Shimo is really a great spot, a small town, within Tokyo and we highly recommend it for those wanting to experience a "local" spot without being right downtown in Tokyo.
This is our second stay at this apartment and I highly recommend it. Close to everything in an area full of atmosphere , bars and great food yet totally peaceful for just chilling out when you need some space. The flat was perfect for the two of us but three people would be fine too. Free wi-fi and good directions are a big bonus as you will always be connected on the move. The hosts have provided all that you need and the place is clean and cozy. I will return to this apartment without hesitation despite it being a bit more expensive than my last visit ( maybe due to holiday season ?). Without a doubt a fantastic alternative to a hotel and honestly this district can't be beaten for your Japan experience. You really won't regret this choice.
While only a few minutes from the buzz of Shimokita, the apartment was extremely quiet, which was great. Bed was comfortable. Apartment warmed up quickly when the lounge heater was on. Everything worked. We enjoyed our stay.
Fantastic neighborhood, an amazing place to start a Tokyo journey. Less than 5 minute walk from a train station that is itself s just something worth knowing ahead of time. I would say the place is perfect for 3 single people (as we were), or 1 couple and 2 singles. 5 is possible but pushing it.
Other than that, the apartment was clean and cozy, the directions and welcome email from the host were absolutely clear fantastic, and we have no complaints. Would absolutely use again.

The barrista spent 20 years in NY learning coffee (and attitude). Try the espresso; its like an espresso of an espresso. Hes a true master.２丁目 Setagaya Tokyo 155-0031
Usually about 50/50 Japanese/Foreigners, a great place to meet locals and fellow travelers. Really reflects the laid back feel of Shimokita. You can bring in outside food, and drinks are only 400 yen.Setagaya Tokyo 155-0031
