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!
We had an excellent stay. The cozy apartment has everything you need in a fabulous nieghborhood. It's small but great for 2 people. Hosts made it easy to arrive and were very accommodating. The bed is super comfortable. Pocket wifi was great to have during our stay. Two thumbs up!
We spent a perfect time in Jay and Dee appartment. First they were very good host, we did't see them but all was very organized, very easy. They always answered very quickly to our requests. And Shimokitazawa... It is definitly our favorite neightbourhood in Tokyo. Very peaceful, arty, a lot of little shop, bar and restaurant all over the streets. The perfect place.
First of all, if you feel intimidated about having to find your way to Shimo-Kitazawa, don't. You don't have anything to fear because Jay and Dee will give you a really handy and easy to understand guide so you can find the house easily.
Second, if you plan to come to Tokyo because of the more advertised locations such as Shibuya or Shinjuku, you will be pleasantly surprised to find what this neighborhood can offer. This is a very cool neighborhood with a few coffee shops, bars, 2nd hand shops and a cat-cafe of its own.
The house itself is really near the train station (at about 300m walk) but it's not so close that you can hear the trains. It is a really comfortable little house which has everything you need! You can cook, wash clothes, shower in the tub, watch TV and feel really at home. I would really recommend looking into renting this place from Jay & Dee if you want to experience living like a Japanese :D
Regarding the host, they are the most helpful bunch. You can text them any time on and they will be happy to help. They're a cool bunch. Hope you guys reading this would get this room!
Listing description was accurate minus the view of the garden but on a appartment block. Fine for a short stay for a young couple with no kids in a nice area.
El apartamento estaba bien ubicado, con la parada de metro de shimokitazawa muy cerca que conectaba directamente con Shibuya en poco tiempo. El barrio es tranquilo y tiene cerca supermercados y sitios para comer y cenar. El apartamento estaba limpio y en buenas condiciones. El único pero es que era muy pequeño para tres personas, es más adecuado para una o dos personas.
We have a wonderfull time in Jay & Dee place, they were very good hosts, answering our needs immediately. The ubication was perfect, a few meters from the station and very good shops around.
Our stay here came at the end of a three week trip through Japan, so by the time we arrived we were feeling pretty exhausted (and chilled, given that it was the end of winter); when we arrived at the apartment, it was pre-heated, and bright, and cosy, and such a wonderful base from which to discover Tokyo.
The location is excellent – Shimokitazawa is a great place to be, and this apartment is more-or-less adjacent to some excellent cafés, clothes stores, and other hipster necessities.
The apartment itself was really easy to find, given the instructions that were provided in advance. When we arrived, it was really tidy, and everything that we needed – towels, portable WiFi (very important!), dishes, etc. – was provided. Information as to how to properly care for the place was very clear.
After a couple days – after we had established our routines – we began to feel at home, and really embedded in the community. Had we opted to stay elsewhere, I doubt that would have happened. We'd definitely like to stay here again.
It makes us really really happy to know that you guys felt at home while staying in our apartment Tim! We absolutely love Shimokitazawa as well so it is great that you had time to experience all of the great cafes and stores in the area! We hope to host you guys again next time you are back in the city! :)
