  • Where is the best accommodation in Tokyo for the price?

    I’m currently paying $3000 US a month equivalent and it’s taking most of my funds. Where is someone cheaper I can stay but still central and close to conveniences?

    Hi Madison,

    Finding affordable accommodation in central Tokyo can be a challenge, but there are still some neighborhoods where you might find better deals. Areas such as Nakano, Koenji, and Asagaya are just a few stops away from central Tokyo and offer a more reasonable cost of living while still being convenient and lively.

    Another area to consider is Ikebukuro, which is a bit less expensive than the ultra-central spots like Shibuya or Shinjuku, but still offers a lot of amenities and great transportation links.

    You could also consider shared accommodations or guesthouses like those offered by Oakhouse or Sakura House. They provide a range of options from private apartments to shared houses, which can be significantly cheaper.

    Apartments in Tokyo can vary greatly in price depending on size, age, distance from the station, and whether they’re furnished or not, so it’s important to keep these factors in mind while looking for accommodation. It’s also worth checking out online real estate portals like SUUMO or Homes to get an idea of what’s available within your budget.

    Best of luck with your search!
