From studios to apartments with 3 bedrooms

Apartments in Shinjuku

I have selected several condos and residences that accept foreigners in Shinjuku special ward and its surroundings. In this list, you will find mostly studios because this area of Tokyo is in high demand by workers and students who come to settle in the Japanese capital city. Indeed, the largest Japanese companies have their offices near Shinjuku station, and the prestigious Waseda University is also close. This high concentration leads to higher prices per square meter, which is why apartments in this district are often smaller.

You cannot find a residence in Shibuya?

Search an home in nearby areas

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 accommodation in Shinjuku?

One of the busiest wards in Tokyo, Shinjuku is the center of commercial and recreational activities in the city. It is located near Toshima, Bunkyo, Chiyoda, Nakano, Shibuya and Minato wards, and it is most famous for its railway station and shopping centers.

Shinjuku ward is home to the world’s busiest railway station, the Shinjuku Station, which is surrounded by business facilities, amusement centers and shopping areas. Atop the railway station lies a terminal for long-distance buses, making transportation easier for local and international residents.

Sky-towering buildings are also prominent within Shinjuku. In fact, it is home to diplomatic offices, along with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, which is the Tokyo government’s administration center.

The vibrant, high-rise buildings in Tokyo offer an amazing view to tourists and locals alike. At the northern part of Shinjuku are commercial centers of Kagurazaka and Iidabashi, while the western area houses residential and academic vicinities.

As a multi-faceted ward, Shinjuku also allocates space for greenery and other ecological spaces. The southern part of the ward features Meiji Jingu Shrine Gaien and Shinjuku Gyoen Garden, which feature a relaxing view of natural plants and blooms.

A highly-diverse ward perfect for local and international residents, Shinjuku is idyllic for those who love living the urban life.
