Shimo-kitazawa, commonly called "Shimokita," considered to be one of Tokyo's hippest neighborhoods among young people. The atmosphere and fashion is similar to the more popular Harajuku, but is usually less crowded and has a much more laid-back atmosphere.

Given that Shimokitazawa is very very near Shinjuku and Shibuya it really isn't that far out of your way to get there. That being said it may appeal more to the following types of people.

People more into an indie scene.

People who want to shop and don't mind second hand clothes.

People getting a bit tired of the crowds at Shinjuku and Shibuya but who still want to visit somewhere lively.

Global Street Style Report: Mapping Out the 15 Coolest Neighborhoods in the World - Vogue Sep. 5, 2014

" As far as hangouts go, Shibuya gets most of Tokyo's street style and hipster kudos–it is the land of Harajuku, after all. But it's the more low-key Shimokitazawa that's known for its casual-cool fashion and oddball boutiques. The area has all the nuance and niche of pop Japanese culture, without the neon and the frenzy. Keep an eye out for quirkily curated vintage shops, as well as Darwin Room, a storefront peddling natural curiosities like morpho butterflies and Yves Klein–blue fossils."


Short walk ( 9 minutes) to the North from the apartment you will find yourself at the Sasazuka Station on Keio Line by which you can take the train to Shinjuku Station (5 minutes ride).

Sasazuka has managed to keep the style of the old-style of Tokyo, providing you an opportunity to enjoy the lively neighborhood.

Again short walk (10 minutes) to the South from the apartment you will arrive to the Shimo Kitazawa Station (西-west exit) on the Inokashira Line which takes you to the Shibuya Station. ( 4 minutes ride).
