SangenJaya is one of central Tokyo coolest neighborhoods on the boundary between Meguro and Setagaya Wards in central Tokyo. It is located at the merging of two historic roadways--Route 246 and Setagaya-dori, just outside the central area of Shibuya. Historically, when traditional Japanese were coming into Tokyo from the countryside they would stop in Sangenjaya for a rest before entering the heart of the city. This is where the area got its name--Sangenjaya--"three tea houses."
Komazawa Olympic Park is a short stroll away too--this is a great park. Here will can enjoy space, sport and jogging. Its 2.2 kilometer jogging/walking/cycling course offers urbanites a welcome break from the FAST-pace of Tokyo-Life.
This is a large size (by Tokyo standards) apartment, 6 minute walk from the station and a 5 minute ride to Shibuya.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Great location and neat little appartment
The appartment is conveniantly located close to a subway station. It is clean and provided good accomodation for 4 people (2 adults and 2 teenage kids). It has all you need for a short stay in Tokyo. Bruce was very hepful and the instuctions clear and made our stay easier.
Would warmly recommend.
Would definitely stay here again
Myself, husband and son stayed here for a little over two weeks. For us it was the most perfect place to stay. It's a neat two bedroom apartment in a quiet neighbourhood. For us, having a quiet place to retire to at the end of each day was really important so we could get much needed sleep after our fairly hectic days exploring Tokyo. The location coupled with comfy beds and air conditioning meant sleep was no problem
It's also important to say the apartment was only a five minute work from the train station and only 3 stops from Shibuya so we were not far from the action!
The apartment was well equipped with a good shower. Shamppo, shower gel and soap were provided along with basic kitchen eseentials like tea, coffee, sugar, cooking oil etc. The kichen was well equipped although we ended up eating out most of the time as we found the food in Tokyo cheap and varied and there are restaurants everywhere!
One real bonus was the pocket wifi. This meant we could connect to the Internet anywhere without incurring data roaming charges.
Finally, the proprietor Bruce was a super friendly guy and although we never needed to contact him I am sure he would have been on hand to sort out any issues.
Would definitely stay here again
The apartment was exactly what we needed. Everything we needed was there, Bruce was lovely, the place was clean and the perfect distance from the city. The portable wi-fi was a godsend!
Great apartment, fantastic service!
We stayed in Bruce's apartment for 3 nights in February and it was everything we needed for a short stay in Tokyo. As a couple we didn't make use of the second bedroom but it would comfortably sleep more than 2 or a small family.
Great location in a quiet residentially area a few stops from Shibuya. Bruce met us at the station even though we arrived quite late in the evening and gave us lots of help and tips. The apartment was well equipped with everything you would need and expect from a hotel even down to the small details - shampoo, hairdryer, laundry facilities etc. Even though it was chilly outside the air con units and electric blanket made it lovely and cosy to stay.
The mobile wifi was another great addition and I would highly recommend staying in one of Bruce's apartment to anyone!
Our stay in Bruce's flat was perfect! The space was just enough for 5 of us, the neighborhood was just the place we wanted to retire to after a long and tiring day in the city and the amenities in the apartment were complete. Bruce was very welcoming when he met us at the train station. He was there despite our evening arrival and brought us to the apartment and explained everything in detail. We did not have to contact him again about anything because his instructions were very thorough. We will definitely stay in one of Bruce's flats next time we are in Tokyo.
We stayed in this great place over for New Year`s and it was just fantastic. The place is very well furnished the whole interior actually shows real taste which is somewhat unusual for rentals in Japan. The location is in Sangenjaya so close to Shibuya if you need it but also somewhat relaxing if you`ve had enough of it. Bruce is a super, super nice guy who took great care of all we needed and I will defenitely stay with him again.
Great home away from home!
Bruce is the perfect host! He was most accommodating and flexible with our arrival time.
The apartment was enough for our family of four. The train station was within walking distance. It was nice to be able to make breakfast in the kitchen before heading out. The neighborhood was quiet and we felt safe.
Thanks for offering a cozy apartment Bruce!
Wonderful first time experience in Tokyo.
Absolutely wonderful first time experience in Tokyo. Apartment was as expected. Simple and cosy. Owner was very helpful and welcoming. Will definitely return again!.
Root / Switzerland
We rented the apartment for 10 days, a perfect location for discovering Tokyo! Centrally located to subway station, about a 5 minute walk only. Very friendly and helpful landlord. Apartment is of a good size, nice and clean, comfortable beddings, extremely quiet and very cosy. Free Wi-Fi. Kitchen was well equipped and catered well to our needs. It looked so beautiful how could a person go wrong in staying there!
Great apartment near the center of Tokyo
4 of my friends and I spent 20 days of august in this appartment. It's a great place very near to the Shibuya station. Bruce was also very nice, he introduced us to the apartment and was very helpful.
Authentic Tokyo apartment stay
The owner, Bruce, met us on arrival and introduced us to the apartment.
Very homely, and we enjoyed our stay. We felt like part of the neighbourhood.
Great cheap accommodation close to the heart of Tokyo!
My friends and I stayed here in early January for a birthday trip. Having stayed in Tokyo before I know how expensive it can be for accommodation, so we were looking for some alternative that also allowed us to be close to the main areas.
The apartment is great, being only 5 minutes away from Shibuya station with plenty of shops around the apartment for grocery and breakfest purposes. The apartment is also quite large for Tokyo, we managed to fit 7 adults in - which while a little squishy was more than fine for a short stay like ours, and at the price really couldn't be beat - and if you are a group of about 4 to 5 you definitely can't go past this place!
I stayed at Bruce's Shabuya station apartment in October 2010. Bruce was a pleasure to deal with. He made every effort to stay connected to me right up until I arrived in Japan with 4 kids in-tow! The apartment was spacious by Japanese standards, very clean and bright. Hot water, dishes, close to stores for groceries, transit near by, quite and with a laptop & the internet. made down loading our pictures a breeze. This was my first experience traveling out of the United Sates and with 4 of my children. Bruce made the initial rental experience simple to understand and convenient. I would rent from Bruce again and would recommend you stay at this apartment.
Great location, quiet and peaceful but close to the action.
Bruce was great, he met us and made sure we were settled but then pretty much left us to our own devices. The flat is clean and comfortable. It's in a quiet neighbourhood but the bars and restaurants of Sangenjaya and Shimokitazawa are nice and close. We had a great time!
I enjoyed a pleasant stay here with my girlfriend, my brother and his girlfriend and my cousin. It is located about a 7 minute walk away from Komazawa-Daigaku station which is just 3 stops away from Shibuya so it's very close the heart of Tokyo while being situated in a peaceful area. Every was clean and tidy when I got there and the 2 bedrooms were reasonably spacious, especially considering the average sized bedrooms in Tokyo. Best of all, all of this was for a very affordable price and I would definitely recommend staying here and I would definitely be happy to return to there again.
Great Japan Neighborhood Stay
This was a lovely apartment located in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. Everything is fairly close by including the train. The apartment comes with bikes to getting around is fairly easy. There is an amazing park within walking or biking distances from the apartment. The park is a perfect place to go swimming or just spend sometime away from the hustle of Tokyo. I would recommend this place for anyone who plans on staying in Tokyo for any extensive amount of time. It's much better than an expensive hotel. Plus Bruce is very helpful.
