Welcome to Tidy & Minimal apt in Sasazuka (btwn Shimokitazawa/Shinjuku). This spot is only 1 stop away (about 6 min ) from Shinjuku on Keio Line, but also pretty close to Harajuku/Shibuya area. About 7min walk to Shimokita (little Brooklyn of Tokyo). The room comes with comfy bed, useful desk, clean kitchen, free WiFi and bath room.

The nearest station is Sasazuka, about 8min walk to the apt. I would say this spot is great for couple who would like to explore Shimokitazawa area.

The space

The size of the room is equivalent to 6 tatami mats,so it’s not big but pretty okay size for 2 people, especially if you are out all the time exploring the great neighborhood of Toyko. There is plenty of natural sunlight coming through the window during the day. I’ve got closet that you can put your suitcases. The room comes with the air conditioner.

Other things to note

For the guests coming to Tokyo in winter season. Unlike most Western apartments, Japanese apartments don’t have the central heating system and Tokyo literally gets bone-chilling cold inside out! To get through Tokyo’s cold winter, go get UNIQLO’s HEATECH inner and tights because trust me, they work surprisingly good. Bring warm clothes!

Great little spot to explore Tokyo. Nice neighbourhood and quiet flat. No nonsense rules and no interaction with host might not make it for everyone but we found it perfect for our stay.

Great place within 15 minutes walk to Shimokitazawa and less than 10 minutes to the train station. Great communication and clean place. Thanks for having us!

So’s place is great for a solo traveler. Compact and close to both Shimokitazawa and Sasazuka yet far enough away to be really quiet at night. Everything was super easy to navigate to and So provided great neighborhood tips.

The location was good. Near two stations which easily go to Shibuya and Shinjuku (central hubs in Tokyo). It is also very close to a very cool area Shimo-Kitazawa which has lots of great bars, restaurants and shops. The host was great and everything was very simple.

We really enjoyed our stay in So's apartment. The apartment is just as we expected: small but cozy and you can definitely see So has some talent for decorating a room. The apartment was located in a nice neighborhood, also close (10 min walk) to Shimokitazawa, a nice spot with small restaurants and cafes. The neighborhood itself is quiet and enables you to get a good rest at night! A small critical side note: at the time we wanted to check-in, we were not able to reach So, so that gave us some trouble but in the end we managed to get in and got a response from So. And his instructions about how to get to the apartment are actually very clear.

So's place was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. Awesome location, close to the train at Sasazuka and walking distance from Shimokitazawa. It was a little tight with two people, but we were happy being there for 5 nights. It would be a perfect size for a solo traveler. It was also great to go out for drinks with So one night, and he was nice enough to show us around to some great local spots. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again!

We are happy that we chose this place. So was friendly, easy to reach and the place was nice. We also enjoyed a lot walking Shimokitazawa, which was very near at the south.

I am not an arty dude, but I really appreciate good design especially minimalistic Japanese/simple Scandinavian style (shout out to my girlfriend, Tiia).
