Stylish and private apartments hosted by Tokyo start-up In The Hood sit in an easygoing area between the city's trendiest districts. Well-placed Higashi-Azabu shares the old, Edo-era feel of neighboring areas, with added subtle charm.
Though Tokyo has an endless supply of hotels, sometimes you just want a nice, clean, private apartment with the conveniences of home, and those of a hotel. At In The Hood Higashi Azabu, high ceilings and floor-length windows frame your luxe 430 sq feet apartment, with kitchen, washer-dryer, and work area. Start your day with a trip to the local store for some interesting local produce, whip up a snack, then enjoy it on the balcony overlooking the city.
Catering to independents, minimal interaction is the default at In The Hood. Check in and check out are fully automated with smart-locks. However, all In The Hood guests are invited to a weekly happy hour and there are English-speaking locals a phone call away to provide recommendations.
Higashi Azabu neighborhood is a quiet residential neighborhood, home to many traditional shitamachi buildings and locally-owned, independent businesses. Go for a stroll and major attractions are a stone's throw away (we especially love the verdant Shiba Koen Park). Other sights within walking distance include the Tokyo Tower, the famous Zojoji temple, and the Arisugawa-no-Miya Memorial Park, an elegant garden, once part of a feudal lord’s residence. You'll find good eats in the area, too. At charming Tofuya Ukai, three minutes away, you’ll reevaluate everything you think you know about tofu. Gen Yamamoto, meantime, is a minimalist shrine devoted to a divine combination of mixology and seasonal produce. The cocktails are exquisite. Kanpai!
