Area Information

This is a quiet and suburban area that is so close to everything that Tokyo has to offer. Anywhere inside the Yamanote line is considered central Tokyo.

This house is located close to JR Gotanda station, JR Meguro station, JR Shinagawa station. All of these stations have extensive shopping, supermarkets and restaurants to choose from but they are also excellent transport hubs to anywhere in the city quickly.

The closest station is actually the Asakusa subway line Takanawadai station. This is only 4 minutes walk away.

The streets are fairly typical of suburban Tokyo and some urban hiking reveals interesting architecture as well as many green spaces.

On days when you want to stick close to home, the neighbourhood bustles with restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and other amenities. There is a grocery store nearby perfect for stocking breakfast and for snacks, we suggest any of the nearby convenience stores which are open 24 hours.

We’ve drawn up a neighborhood map to help you find what you need.

We love living in Tokyo and our own apartment is a few minutes away. We will personally meet and greet you and show you through the house and how to use everything. Please note that we do not offer self check in.
