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 a lovely stay in the apartment. The location was excellent for a first time visit to Tokyo. Would stay here again!
It's a peace and comfortable place near Shibuya. When you are tired of shopping & crowd, you can relax your body here. Many lovely stores here if you like native style hand make goods. Don't forget to leave half day to play with kitty in Cat Cafe:)
My partner and I had a wonderful stay in this little apartment in Shimokitazawa, made even more amazing by the little touches and gestures by Jay & Juliet. We were given very thorough instructions (with pictures!) on how to get to the apartment from various points of arrival in Tokyo, a good few days before we left, so we had time to go through it all and print it out. The day we arrived, it was about 35 degrees outside, and thank The Lord, the air conditioning was on full blast in the apartment which was the most amazing thing (the air conditioning was the bees knees). The apartment was smal but very lovely, and plenty of space for my partner and I. And the area was so nice and peaceful, with lots of little shops and restaurants, including a cat cafe! We were also provided with a pocket wifi by the hosts which was a life saver when attempting to navigate around the city. We'd definitely recommend this place to a friend, and can't wait to come back and stay here in the future. Thank you Jay and Juliet for making our stay so magical
Solid little apartment that had everything that I needed during my stay. Bathroom was a little cramped but the place was comfortable nonetheless. Definitely would use again next time I'm in Tokyo!
We had a great time in Shimokitazawa! This city was one of our favorite places in Japan, with great vintage stores, bars, coffee shops and music. Our airbnb was in a perfect location near everything and the train station, the instructions on how to get there were very clear, and the pocket wifi was essential! It is a small space, as we found to be the norm in many places here, but it was welcoming and we were quite comfortable as two people. Our hosts were also very responsive with our questions, getting back to us almost immediately. Would highly recommend!!
The place was perfect for our stay in Tokyo. We absolutely loved the neighborhood, which was a quiet retreat from the rest of our day traveling around the city by way of the metro. The window opens up onto a lovely garden, as the picture shows, and the only sound is the birds. Communication with Jay of Happy Tokyo was perfect, with incredibly detailed and helpful directions. The pocket wifi was immensely useful.
What a great time in Tokyo with Happy Tokyo - super nice neighbourhood (lots of restaurants, bars, music venues, amazing shopping,...) and to top it staying at a nice cozy apartment very well located with incredibly available&responsive hosts. Couldn't have asked for better. Wonderful.
