What is a share house? Why you'll like it.

Share houses are the best housing type for single foreigners who want to live comfortably in Japan. Real estate companies, like Oakhouse, are managing these abodes that are large shared apartments where every tenant has a own private space.

You cannot find a residence in Shibuya?

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.

Shinjuku

Shinjuku is the new business center of Tokyo. This heteroclytic and lively area is located north of Shibuya.

Minato is also a central district of Tokyo. It is best known for hosting Roppongi, a popular neighborhood for foreigners in Japan.

Setagaya is the most populated district of Tokyo. You will not only find residential areas since it is here that Shimokitazawa and Sangenjaya are located.

Why living in Nakano ward?

Founded in the year 1932, Nakano Ward was launched as the merger of the former Japanese towns, Nogata and Nakano, when they were integrated as a part of Tokyo. A neighborhood distinct from its nearby wards, Nakano is one of the most underrated spots in Japan.

Geographically, Nakano is surrounded by Toshima, Shinjuku, Nerima, Suginami and Shibuya. With major urban centers around the area, many tourists miss out on Nakano’s natural charms, but the locals know better than taking a pass on visiting this beautiful neighborhood.

A low-rise residential space just one ride away from bustling metropolitan wards, Nakano is filled with 50 authentic ramen shops, including pioneer shops and creative indie ramen restaurants, along with other amenities that greatly portray the Japanese culture. Among the most popular landmarks in the area is Nakano Broadway, a haven for anime and manga fans all over the world. Want to bring home anime collectibles? Don’t forget to visit this renowned shop.

Indeed, a stop to Nakano is a trip down to memory lane as it features vintage shops that strongly represent the beauty of the Japanese culture and heritage. It may shy away from the spotlight, but it is definitely worth more than a single trip.
