My name is Yuka, and I'm trilingual: English, Japanese, Chinese. I'm looking for a non-smoking roommate in this house in Higashi-Ikebukuro.
It is too big for one person, so I hope to find a suitable roomie. There is one 8 tatami bedroom available on the second floor, about 13m2,
furnished with an air conditioner/heater. The room has a charming Tokonoma.

It is amazingly located, 4 minute walk to Higashi Ikebukuro station (Yurakucho line), 13 minutes to Ikebukuro station (The second largest station in Tokyo with train lines: Marunochi, Fukutoshin, Yurakucho, Yamanote, Saikyo, Utsunomia, Seibu and Tobu Ikebukuro lines, and Narita Express. Since Ikebukuro is the terminal station last train ends here at 1:50~ AM), as well as the tram line in Tokyo directly to Waseda (Ideal for Waseda students!) We are a few minute walk from Sunshine City, where there are direct Airport buses.
Convenient access to large and diversified food stores. Seibu, Seiyu, Tobu, Parco, 0101, Yamaya, Hanamasa, Tokyu Hands etc.

I'm a reader, and well connected with art and literary community in Tokyo, which means I can provide information to the local art galleries, museums, bookstores, historical sites, etc. Waseda students are preferable; others are welcome. The region is home to Tokyo's oldest extant Temple-- Gokokuji 1681, not bombed in WWII. Sugamo Prison Camp, Zoshigaya Cemetery where Lafcadio Hearne, Nagai Kafu and Natsume Soseki rest. Architectural sites including Kenzo Tange's St. Mary's Cathedral, and Frank Lloyd Wright's Giugakuen, among other sites of interest. A few up and coming Art galleries are also within walking distance.

*¥95,000 rent + shared utilities (I leave for work at 8:45 am until 7~8pm on weekdays, so the goal is to keep utilities within ¥10,000 range, thus ~¥5000 per person including internet.)
*Deposit + first + last month's rent
*No key money


Utilities(common space)
* Wi-fi
* One Bathroom(bathtub), one washlet (separated)
* Bicycle parking (The entrance is very large)
* 412L brand new refrigerator
* Microwave
* Washing machine
* Coffee maker
* Rice cooker
* Pots and dishes, other kitchen items (All new kitchenwear)
* Plenty of storage.

Your Private Bedroom:
* 8 tatami bedroom available on the second floor
* Furnished with air conditioner/heater
* Small private balcony
* Tokonoma
* Closet
* Slight view of adjacent cherry blossom trees and park

Charming newly renovated traditional Japanese house (Showa 33) in a quiet residential area a few minutes from the bustle of Ikebukuro, one of Tokyo's most lively quarters. Many original fixtures and handles have been preserved to make this home a memorable experience instead of a bland cookiecutter room. The place is newly renovated, so all surfaces are in "new" condition. This is my first apartment, so all appliances and kitchen supplies are also new. With a bicycle this location is ideal because there are no stations you must get to before you enter Tokyo. So here you will enjoy a quiet, relaxing space ideal for study, with the convenience of being in full urban entertainment within walking distance to your doorstep. I look forward to meeting you.
