Meguro: The 2 best share houses, social residences & rooms 1140 584 Michaël da Silva Paternoster

My selection of the best share houses and apartments of Meguro in Tokyo. Find a room in one of the most affluent residential areas of the Japanese capital city.

Overview of Meguro

Meguro is one of the most popular residential districts in Tokyo. It is just south of Shibuya and it is filled with greenery. This makes it a place close to the most vibrant districts of the Japanese capital city, but at the same time relatively quiet.

Strangely, there are a few social residences in these neighborhoods. The dwellings are mainly adapted for families with rather high incomes. But, it is not impossible to find a share house in this part of Tokyo. I lived for 7 months in one of the residences of my recommendations list.

My residences selection in Meguro

Gran Gakugei Daigaku

Prices: Single rooms from 68000 yen per month.
Nearest train station: Nishikoyama (13 minutes walk)
Description: I lived in this residence. I can only advise it to you if you are not afraid to walk because closest train stations are far away. In the heart of Meguro, the flat is furnished with a library, a projection room and a Japanese jacuzzi (a private sento). I shared great moments with my roommates in the gigantic living room of this share house.
