Asakusa(Kuramae): Cultural downtown of folks

Asakusa Kuramae house is one of the most central locations in the city. The nearest station is right around the corner. In addition the Sky Tree is also close by which gives you the option to look over the whole city, this way you can really acknowledge the bizarre size of Tokyo. If you walk a little further, you can reach Asakusa. One of the leading tourist destinations in Tokyo is always within your area.


Kuramae is super convenient since it sits in the middle of three major lines (Asakusa, Ginza and Oedo line). You can walk to Kuramae station within 30 seconds, and reach Asakusa in 10 minutes by walking. Furthermore, you can also get to Akihabara within 15 minutes and reach other famous areas in Tokyo easily. Also, it is a nice environment for people who want to get some fast food, such as Sukiya, McDonald’s, and Iekei Ramen which are all a minute walk from this house.

This house is in a very busy area with convenience stores at every corner. A lovely shopping district and other tourist attractions are only ten minutes’ walk away. Sensoji Temple is the oldest temple in Tokyo and is crowded with many tourists every day. I recommend riding a rickshaw. Another famous attraction is Sky Tree. It is Japan’s tallest building (634 meters) and the world’s largest radio tower. You can enjoy the Sumida River fireworks display during the three major festivals.


At the monthly house meeting led by the house manager, housemates can discuss the distribution of cleaning duties and house rules over dinner. Sometimes another sharehouse can join in. We can all catch up on each other’s lives.
