Modern Living Sendagaya House

Piccolo Opera, 3-5-5 Sendagaya Shibuya-ku, Tokyo 150-0051


Submarine House

Experience Tokyo modern living in one of the world’s busiest, and most populated cities. This is a newly built house in the unique “pencil” style – tall and thin houses on small parcels of land which are architectural masterpieces of space management and funky design.

This amazing house is 5 mins walk to Takeshita street, Harajuku station and only moments away from Meiji Shrine, Shibuya and Yoyogi Park.

This new, modern build contains 2 bedrooms, spacious kitchen, large combined living and dining room and accommodates up to eight guests with options for two more. Or share between two or three couples for a relaxed retreat in Tokyo. We welcome groups and families with children and can provide toys for little ones to keep them entertained at home. This house is big enough for extended families and fast fibre WiFI internet for business travelers and heaving gaming teens. Plus a portable WiFi for sightseeing.

Houses in Tokyo are usually only enjoyed by the wealthy and are extremely rare this close to Shinjuku, Shibuya and Omote Sando. See for yourself how Japanese architects can make the smallest patch of land into a comfortable living environment.

Property Information

It would be hard to get a better location for sightseeing. Enjoy a 10 minute stroll through lively Yoyogi Park to the quiet gardens of Meiji Shrine and Harajuku’s funky shopping streets and beyond to Omotesando, the Champs-Élysées of Tokyo.

The house is in a quiet and safe street but only a few minutes walk from all the fun and funky shops and restaurants in Harajuku, Omote Sando and Shibuya.

This is also right in the heart of the fashion district with many fashion houses in the neighbourhood. Play “spot the foreign super model” with plenty of models rushing about from job to job.

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.

Younger guests may enjoy the free pony rides every day at the Tokyo Equestrian Center a short walk away through to the Sangubashi entrance to the Meiji Shrine gardens.

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