Best recommended Properties for Access to Ikebukuro!
Social Apartment provides the perfect balance between a sharehouse and private apartment. You can relax and enjoy your privacy in your room but still have fun and rely on a community at your convenience.
This time we are featuring our properties where you can also easily access Ikebukuro. Ikebukuro is one of the largest hubs in Tokyo. The Yamanote line circulates main spots such as Shibuya and even Ueno, the Marunouchi line takes you directly to Otemachi and Tokyo stations. The Yurakucho line will take you up to Nagatacho, Ichigaya and Iidabashi areas. Finally the rarely crowded Fukutoshin line runs through Meijijingu (Harajuku), Higashi-Shinjuku, and Shibuya.
The excellent access has made Ikebukuro a hotspot for entertainment and authentic eating. The Sunrise towers feature many fun activities such as the recently popular Team Lab exhibition where you can be literally pulled into a fantastic light experience. Ikebukuro also has a diverse community with homemade east asian cuisines available.
The perfect place to enjoy before coming home to a Social Apartment!
For the first time ever, Social Apartment has installed an authentic movie theater as one of the shared facilities.
Unlike any conventional theater rooms you would sometimes find in other properties, the movie theater at FILMS Wako brings an authentic home cinema experience rivaling actually going to the movies. We have made the dream of having a cinema at your home a conceptual reality.
With ample room in a space larger than 40㎡, we have created an atmospheric cinema experience by installing more than 20 industry standard cinema chairs, the ones you movie lovers so familiarly know. Just plug any portable electronic device and watch your favorite video content on the big screen. For those who longed to showcase their own work on the big screen, it is now possible with this home cinema!
