Rent an Apartment in Tokyo
The Azabu and Hiroo area is a quiet, and yet, cosmopolitan area, and has always been known as an upscale residential area. Being cosmopolitan, there are numerous international affiliated enterprises and some embassies that bring both Japanese and non-Japanese people into the area. In the neighborhood, you will find supermarkets that supply import products, parks (Arisugawa Park etc.) and churches that make it a quiet, comfortable and safe area for residing.
Roppongi is one of the most famous night spots in the world, and international celebrities who come to Japan often visit this district for its international cuisine, bars and café, and, of course, night clubs. This is why Roppongi is always teeming with people from around the world.
At the same time, it is known as a high-class residential area. There are embassies from all over the world and their ambassadors' residences, among those of world executives and well-known artists. Roppongi Hills, a sprawling complex with both commercial and residential floors has been built recently. It has become the new famous sight-seeing spot in Tokyo.
Some international schools run their school buses in this area, where TAC is also located.
This famous "fashion-trendsetting" area is located around Aoyama, Omotesando and Harajuku. The latest fashion designers and apparel retailers come and define their business base here. Omotesando is where the international high-quality stores converge. The area is often used for photographing models for magazines. Harajuku is more for younger people who are seeking their own look. Don't be surprised to see "blond" Japanese youths strolling about. The Aoyama area, which leads you to the Akasaka area, is more a business district with globally affiliated enterprises, designers' offices, etc.
The Aoyama area is also suitable for residing in. Although being in the very center of Tokyo, it has Meiji-Jingu (one of the most famous shrines in Japan) and parks; and the residential area is quiet and safe. Japanese VIPs, international executives and business managers seem to be fond of finding a residence in the area.
Shoto, Aobadai and Daikanyama are quiet, high-class residential areas located around Shibuya, an area full of large department stores, shops, restaurants and every kind of entertainment.
Shoto is close to the Tokyu Department Store, one of the biggest in Japan, and a 10-minute walk to Shibuya Station. Although being so close to the downtown district, the residential area is quiet. The residences and land are rather large compared to other areas, and the apartment buildings are not towering like the ones constructed these days. There are also various cultural facilities nearby, such as Kanze-Nogakudo (Noh theater), Shoto Art Museum, Orchard Hall Theater and Theater Cocoon.
