Property Information

The house is in a quiet and safe street but only a few minutes walk from Nakano-Shimbashi station which is just 2 stations away from all the fun and funky shops and restaurants in Shinjuku. From Shinjuku you can easily get to anywhere around Tokyo.

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 this area and our own home  is only a few minutes away. We will personally meet and greet you and show you through the house and how to use everything.
