Ever wanted to live in the centre of Tokyo`s pop culture capital? Want to be right at the heart of the city`s trendiest neighborhoods? With it’s newly built apartment complex, Social Apartments is allowing you to do just that.

The specially developed facility, which combines the company`s successful model of private rooms and fun shared provisions lies just 6 mins walk from Harajuku and 4 mins from Kita-Sando Stations.

Harajuku is of course, the birth-place of Japanese pop culture, covering everything from fashion, to the more serious art that has long been inspiring Japanese creatives. Just alongside Takeshita Dori and the centre of teen culture is Omotesando, the home of major brands, boutiques and the Japanese jet set. There are a number of cafes, unique restaurants and one-off outlets you won’t find anywhere else in Tokyo. They line the broad, treelined avenue, which makes for a really nice environment and further explains why the big overseas brands almost always choose to open up their flagship stores in the area. Down the road is the Meiji Shrine, a major site of traditional culture in Tokyo while further on lies Yoyogi Park, one of the largest in Tokyo and a great place to enjoy jogging, cycling and picnics.
