Social Apartments Funabashi – The Space In-between

May 21st, 2014By Category: Uncategorized

Tokyo might be where everyone is during the day, but come night time, Japanese people scatter far and wide to return home. Funabashi in Chiba Prefecture is one of those destinations that people call home; the city is reasonable, friendly and has lots of local atmosphere to hang out in after a day at the office. It’s also where Social Apartments have chosen to open their latest shared apartments, bringing their mix of high-quality facilities, friendly living environments amongst foreign and Japanese residents and their unique apartment features that are designed to make living in Japan much more comfortable. And all for a reasonable price, too.


This one is located just 10 minutes walk from Funabashi station, which puts you right by Japan Rail (JR) and Tokyo Metro lines, providing fast access to all key spots around Tokyo. On top of the station is also the huge LaLa Port shopping mall and close by is IKEA, meaning shopping and eating options are never going to be in short supply. Funabashi has become especially popular with young professional singles looking to live close to Tokyo without breaking the bank and they get not only a convenient location but plenty of amenities too. If the interest (or a date) takes you, Tokyo Disney Resort is also just 20 minutes ride away.


Inside you can expect the usual Social Apartments’ quality – modern facilities and high-quality gear in the communal areas which include the kitchen and lounges, while your own private room will include a bed, air-con unit, wardrobe and a desk.



If you need a quiet space outside to work in, then Social Apartments Funabashi includes a working lounge with Wi-Fi and power points for you to plug in and get online with.


When you are done with that, though, you may want to get out and relax and the centrepiece of this residence is the California-style Lounge, which is a room set out around warm wood and styled to bring a touch of West Coast beach cabin style to Japan’s shores. The room uses wood and dark blinds to keep things comfortable and intimate with space for dining, sitting down for a good chat or chilling out in front of the widescreen TV.


All in all, there are 50 (12.08㎡) units in the building, with some rooms having direct access to the balcony. The bathrooms are shared with other residents but offer plenty of privacy and each floor is neatly cleaned up to 5 days/week.
