Tidy little bedsit in quaint "almost hipster but not pretentious" neighborhood. Well away from tourists. Lots of young people. Recycled clothing and other quirky shops mixed with some local restaurants, convenience and entertainment. Great yakatori downstairs in same building with lovely staff. Easy to check in and out and communicate with Aussie host Jay.

Jay's place is great. We really enjoyed staying in Shimokitazawa. It's a cool area with it's own character and really close to shibuya. The flat was clean and jad everything we needed and Jay was really helpful and responsive. I'd stay here again for sure

Exactly as advertised, and the perfect location for our first few days in Japan. It gave us the chance to really feel a unique part of Tokyo, was incredibly convenient to the train station, and was definitely big enough (though not huge). Jay was a great host, very responsive to all our questions.

Jay's place is a cute little studio in a neighborhood called Shimo-kitazawa. The area is full of tiny bars, little restaurants, secondhand shops and boutiques. It's alive with young, cool people almost all the time but it still manages to be quiet and comfortable. The place itself is standard Tokyo fare: compact, with a small bathroom that took some getting used to but was ultimately not a problem unlessg you're very tall (say over 6'2", or 185cm). It's very close to the local railway station which will take you to the central Shinjuku station in less than 10 minutes. Overall we loved our stay. If you're looking for something off the beaten path, within easy reach of central Tokyo but still quiet, and with a cool hipster vibe, you've found it.
