My selection of the best share houses and social residences in the Ikebukuro district. Find a room in close proximity to the busiest train stations in North Tokyo.

Overview of Ikebukuro

Ikebukuro is the most popular neighbourhood of the Toshima ward of Tokyo. The neighborhood is organized around the station of the same name which is one of the main places of passage for the people who live in Saitama prefecture and who come to work in Tokyo. This strong affluence makes it one of the busiest districts of North Tokyo. You will find many restaurants, bars and shopping malls. The Yamanote line can bring you to Takadanobaba, Shinjuku or Shibuya in a few minutes. It is also one of the favorite places of foreigners who come to settle in the Japanese capital.

For this reason, there are many foreign social residences in Ikebukuro. Most of them are quite old, so if you are looking for a brand new apartment in Tokyo, I would rather book rooms in other parts of Tokyo. If this does not scare you, I advice you to look at my selection of share houses below!
