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, we cannot allow any children younger than 5 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!
Staying at hip cottage provided an amazing Tokyo experience. From beginning to end, the hosts were fantastic. The location was super easy to find and the neighborhood was superb. We absolutely LOVED Shimokitazawa. Amazing restaurants and izakayas, cafes and boutiques. Train access was incredibly convenient. The whole experience felt very authentic. Thank you for welcoming us! We can't wait to be back!
Great clear instructions, nice small flat with everything we need it. Very cool neighborhood full of coffee shops and second hand clothes shops!
Really nice apartment
It was a cozy little flat; small but functional. The place was really clean and consisted of essentials like towels, body wash, shampoo and hair dryer (Allows you to travel light!). The flat is only a few minutes walk from the train station, making it very convenient for travelling to other parts of Tokyo. Shimokitazawa is a very lovely area. It was away from the hustle and bustle of the city but the area itself is full of life! If you love quirky cafes and used/vintage clothes, this is the place for you!
Lägenheten var toppen! Den var liten, men vi fick plats två personer med två stora resväskor. Lägenheten hade allt vi behövde, vi saknade ingenting. Vi bodde där i tre veckor, så det var väldigt skönt att ha en tvättmaskin tillgänglig på den lilla balkongen.
Området är väldigt lugnt och trevligt och lägenheten ligger väldigt nära tågstationen. Det är ungefär fem minuters promenad till centrala Shimokitazawa, där alla bra restauranger, barer och butiker finns. Shimokitasawa är ett av de bästa kvarteren i Tokyo, fullt av liv och det finns alltid något att göra där. Jag skulle definitivt rekommendera andra att bo här!
Shimokitazawa is a very cool and peaceful neighbourhood, we really enjoy staying there! The apt is small but perfect for two people and has everything you need. Very detailed directions and instructions, we really appreciated it!
Very good location,the apartment is clean and quiet ,all the facilities in the room are helpful,I think I do enjoy the days when I stay here
