One room・1K ⇒ JPY 57,600

① Tokyo-Metro Fukutoshin Line

② Tokyo-Metro Yurakucho Line


Very convenient access to terminal stations such as Ikebukuro station, Shinjuku Sanchome station, Shibuya station and Yokohama station. You can go those stations without changing trains.

[Comfortability of living]

It only takes about 5 minutes to Ikebukuro by express train.

There is a cheap supermarket called Okay store, a useful supermarket near the station, three major convenience stores(Seven Eleven, Family Mart, and Lowson), 100yen store(Daiso), etc. It seems that there are few restaurants, but since there are two universities at Ekoda Station, which is within a walking distance from Kotakemukaihara, there are many izakaya and restaurants (and many tapioca cafes!)◎
