When you live in a city as big as Tokyo, you will face many opportunities as well as challenges. All of our TOKYOSTAY accommodations are within 5-minute walks from the major train stations. For me, at least rushing to work would not be a challenge I cannot handle!
I first moved to Tokyo in the summer of 2015, hoping to explore myself professionally in ways other than teaching my native language. I have thoroughly enjoyed everything the big city has to offer, and met so many interesting people from all walks of life. I live really close to the train station now and so it is easy to get to many of the downtown areas in Tokyo: Ikebukuro, Shinjuku, Shibuya, etc.
Not only do I get to fully enjoy the bustling city life, the location also turned out to be helpful during my job hunt when I had to get to interviews in the commercial districts. On the other hand, my apartment is located in a peaceful residential area, which guarantees that I have a good rest after the busy day of work.
