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!
This is a really great little apartment in one of Tokyo's coolest neighborhoods.
The hosts were really quick to respond to my request with lots of really helpful information on how to find the place, as well as good documentation on how to take care of the apartment.
The apartment itself is small, but very clean and well stocked with anything you might need.
Shimokitazawa is just one stop away from Shibuya, but Shimokita itself is well worth exploring - lots of nice restaurants and cafes, and fun vintage shops.
I recommend this place highly!
The listing is accurate, and LOVED the amount of natural light the comes into the apt. For those who are not aware of apt sizes in Tokyo, this apt would fall on the smaller size. Probably not suitable for a couple traveling with any kids. Neighborhood is great. Also, stairs leading up to the apt are steep, long, and shallow, so anyone with difficulty climbing/going down stairs should be careful.
The place was in a perfect location in a really cool neighborhood and the train station was a block away. Loved the time I spent in Shimokitazawa and awesome welcome booklets to help you out along the way. Highly recommended place to stay.
Thanks, Nils! We're glad you found the booklets helpful--we've been trying to get a good set together (and maintain it!) so our guests are never at a loss for great things to do in the city! Of course, it's hard *not* to find something great in Shimokitazawa, but a little extra information never hurts! Cheers!
Jay and Dee provided great communication throughout the process. The instructions for check in were detailed and made finding the property short work. We had a couple of trivial questions for our hosts, and these were promptly responded to. The property itself was very much as described and shown in the photos. The size was as expected and OK once you are used to staying in smaller Japanese accommodation. My wife and I stayed here for 7 nights, and this would probably be towards the limits of what would be comfortable.
The location was fantastic - only a 5 minute walk from the local station and a 10 minute train ride to both Shinjuku and Shibuya. The local area was somewhat quieter than usual due to the new years holidays, but there were still quite a few options when it came to lunch and dinner time.
If you are looking to stay in Shimo-kitazawa than I'd have no hesitation in recommending this property.
We really appreciate you recommending our apartment Peter!! We are very happy that you guys had such a great New Year's holiday here in Shimokitazawa!! It was our pleasure working with you guys and always communicating anytime you had a question or needed any assistance! We hope to host you guys again next time you are back in Tokyo!! :)
Loved this place. The neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful but hip and just a train stop away from Shibuya. The apartment is small (welcome to Japan) but stacked with everything you need. Jay & Dee were great hosts, providing crystal clear instructions for getting to/using the place and responding quickly to all our correspondence. Can't wait to stay there again next time!
Perfect location. Close to really great bars and restaurants. The apartment is so cute and nicely decorated. The directions we were given were incredibly helpful. And the portable wifi was a life saver. We had such a great time and would recommend Shimokita and this apartment to any friends who visit Tokyo!
Had an amazing time in Tokyo. It was my first visit to Japan. Found the public transportation amazing and staying in the Shimokitazawa neighborhood very convenient. Apartment is easy to find with the directions provided. Bed is super comfy and you have all you need. Highly recommend trying out the restaurants and bars in the neighborhood and doing a little vintage shopping if that is your thing!
