Tama Nagayama Park View
2017.07.12

When you’re looking for a place to stay in Japan, especially in a big city like Tokyo, you often have to make a lot of concessions, whether it’s on size, location, or the building itself. Luckily at Oakhouse we’ve been doing our best to mitigate some of that, with community-minded houses that have plenty of things you won’t find in a typical Japanese share house or apartment.

Recently, our Social Residence series of houses has sort of led the charge with this new kind of share house, with its extra facilities and things, but you might be surprised to learn that there are quite a few houses that don’t bear the Social Residence series name, but still have lots to offer! And at really low rent prices, too (especially if you take advantage of any of our campaign discounts)!

In July, myself and a few other of our foreign staff went to check out two houses in the Tama area in western Tokyo. These can be accessed from the Odakyu or Keio lines. It might look a bit far, but if you’re able to plot out your ride well, you can get there straight from a few different stations.

The first one we looked at was Tama Nagayama Park View, closest to Nagayama station.

First, let's take a look at one of the rooms. It's not set up for a model room or anything, but here you'll see exactly what you'll see when you first move in. There's your bed, desk, chair, refrigerator, drawers, curtains. Behind the camera is a closet too.

So of course you'll spend time there, but there's plenty more in the house too, so let's take a little tour:

Sometimes you'll want to study or read somewhere else that's not your room, whether just for a change of scenery or for a more quiet atmosphere, which is where the study room above comes in.

Here's the main part of the lounge. Plenty of places to sit. Off to the right in this pictures is the dining tables, and behind to the left is the kitchen. Off to the sides in other rooms are the fitness room, smoking room, and theater room.

Plenty of appliances for all your cooking needs. And guitars! You can't cook with guitars though; I'm just saying, there are guitars if you need to rock out!

Plus, on top of that, there's lots of shopping at the station area: lots of restaurants, shopping, and more.

Definitely try these famous profiterole pastries too, right outside the ticket gate. ;)

 

Anyway, depending on where you work or study, this could be the perfect area for you. The station is on two train lines, which opens up your options for commutes or exploring. A well-equipped station area is a huge plus, as well as the many good facilities at the house itself. And for an affordable price, too.

I've lived in Tokyo for 10 years, and have studied Japanese for even longer. I enjoy Japanese language, ancient history, current events, some games, guitars, and other stuff. I'm always interested in learning new things!
