MINIMAL SHIMOKITA: Stylish Loft Apt 3min from Sta.

Tokyo apartments in Shimokitazawa, near Yoyogi Park
We are a Superhost on a different platform :) The room is a spacious 1LDK 41.21㎡ with a loft + everything you'd expect in a guest house, with plenty of space, a high ceiling, lots of natural light and a view of the town from its 9th floor balcony.

3 mins from the station and in the heart of its creative culture, Minimal Shimokita is perfect for singles, couples & families looking to discover the expressive, yet welcoming Shimokita + Shibuya, Shinjuku, Harajuku etc. with great ease.

Where the majority of 1R or 1LDK rooms and hotels in Tokyo are roughly between 15㎡ - 35㎡, Minimal Shimokita with its loft and at 41.21㎡ offers enough space for travelers to truly feel at home.

The two windows on both floors offer plenty of light, creating a perfect atmosphere to unwind after days of being on the go.

The decor is minimal and neutral, with retro Japanese magazines, books and posters that hint at the rich history and culture that Japan has to offer.

・New plants on balcony and in living room
・Laundry basket by washing machine
・Cushion covers from Muji
・Microfibre blanket from Muji
・Floor lamp in bedroom

Being 3 mins from Shimokitazawa station, you can stroll right down to ALL the bars, live music venues, theatres, vinyl stores, indie cinemas, izakayas, restaurants, cafes, dessert shops, vintage clothing stores, comedy clubs, craft beer joints, etc.

Send us a message and we'll send you a few articles that should serve as a nice intro to Shimokitazawa, as well as an e-booklet with personal recommendations in the neighbourhood :)

Shimokitazawa station also offers great access to the eastern metropolis (Shinjuku - 7 mins) as well as the cultural hubs (Shibuya 4 mins / Omotesando 9 mins). Access to another reputable hub in the west, Kichijoji is also fantastic.

We hope guests from all over the world can stay and experience our favourite town just like a local would, and bring back 'a piece' of the Shimokita spirit, memories and inspirations to share with friends and loved ones back home.

We will send you a PDF containing the house manual, address, key instructions and recommendations in the area once booking is confirmed. Thank you so much for your consideration and hope to speak soon :)

Great little hide-away in Shimokitazawa
Great little apartment right in the middle of Shimo. Close walk to the station and was easy to do with suitcases. there is also a lift up to the apartment so no stairs (yay!). Great little donut place downstairs as well - Captain's donuts. We were a group of 4 - there was a bed in the loft area upstairs and a fold out futon style mattress in living room. it was a tight squeeze with 4 and 4 big suitcases, but it was fine! We loved the hot shower and heated toilet seat in the cold mornings. Great place to stay and would highly recommend. It was a self check in process which was easy, and the owner communicated with us with quick responses which made it a breeze.

5/5 Excellent

The perfect home base to explore Tokyo
We couldn't have asked for a better stay on this trip to Tokyo. The location in laid back Shimokitazawa is just a short walk from the train station with easy access to the rest of the city. All the cafes, coffee shops, izakaya, and vintage shops you'll ever need are within a few minutes of the loft. The room is very spacious for Tokyo standards, has quality amenities, a comfortable bed, and excellent views from the balcony - what more could you ask for. To top it off our experience with the host, Ryo, was over the top - he went out of his way to offer incredibly insightful information, activities to do in the area, and has an amazing list of places to eat, see, and do in the area. Can't wait to be back next year.

5/5 Excellent

Great host and location!
Ryo was a very attentive and responsive host. He gave us a lot of helpful tips for Tokyo- things to do and places to eat. The location was fabulous- a 3 minute walk from the local station, which is minutes from Shibuya. We were there during the typhoon but felt very safe and secure. Highly recommend. Thank you!
