Dormitories in Shibuya

Dorms are more economical options than traditional share houses. These accommodations allow you to live in popular areas of Tokyo, like Shibuya, at competitive rates. The only real problem with this type of housing is that it does not leave room for privacy. If this is a problem for you, we advise you to look for residences situated in more residential areas of the Japanese capital city.

As Shibuya is a popular area, it is sometimes difficult to find housing that meets all your expectations in this famous district of Tokyo. For this reason, it is often wiser to look for a share house or apartment in the wards surrounding Shibuya and its renowned pedestrian crossing.

Why choosing to live in Shibuya?

A trip to Japan is never complete without a stop at the famous Shibuya crossing. One of the most prominent wards in Tokyo, Shibuya is often used to refer to the shopping and entertainment centers around Shibuya Station, which is one of the busiest stations in the country.

Thriving on youth culture and fashion, Shibuya is jampacked with the most luxurious residential areas, along with the biggest shopping centers, restaurants, and nightclubs. The most-visited tourist spot in the area is the massive intersection near the station’s Hachiko Exit. Featured in local and international movies, the Shibuya Crossing is remarkable for its gigantic video screens and neon-colored advertisements.

Furthermore, many areas surrounding the Shibuya Station is continuously evolving, thanks to a large-scale redevelopment project which includes a high-rise building and many establishments for the Tokyo Olympic Games. Scheduled until 2020, the project aims to attract more tourists into the country.

Lastly, although Shibuya features innovative amenities, it does not fall short when it comes to green spaces as it is also home to recreational parks such as Shinjuku Gyoen Garden and Yoyogi Park.

With so many features and amenities, a day wouldn’t be enough to explore Shibuya and its most-celebrated gems fully.
