Live in touch with the five senses in a town where people from up and coming creators to seasoned artisans gather

When interesting people come together to create amazing things, they draw in more and more people. This is a positive thing, and there so happens to be a passionate area like this in the east of Tokyo.

Today we will be showcasing a female-exclusive sharehouse located here, Isoletta. The 2km area in all directions covering Shin-Okachimachi, Kuramae and Asakusabashi is known as Kachikura, and is becoming the holy ground for arts and crafts in Japan.

A walk-through event called Monomachi for people to experience the charm of the town and it crafts is held periodically. There is upwards of 200 participating vendors including cafes in old buildings and warehouses, as well as small stalls set up by arts and crafts business, craftsmen and original creators. Setting up your own stall is quite intimidating. As a resident of Isoletta you could collaborate with other housemates and share a stall together.

Located in such a vibrant neighborhood and only a 1-minute walk from Shin-Okachimachi station, Isoletta is one house where any working woman would love to live.

Near the station are Japan’s second oldest shopping areas, Satake Shopping Arcade and Okasu Alley. Walking around checking out the stores would be a great way to spend your off days.

Let’s get on with it and have a look at the house!

This house is administered by the company Yadoya. The owner himself has an interest in creating sharehouses and is there to support you in your new city lifestyle. When I spoke with him for this article it really came across how important he values the relationships with his tenants, as he is managing the whole operation himself.

Yadoya takes care of its residents by hosting all kinds of events, such as plum wine making, cooking days and cleaning with aromatherapy, and the eight residents here, whoever they may be, will most surely achieve relaxed, peace of mind living in the city.

The company also values connections with the locals of Shin-Okachimachi, and living here you may make a local acquaintance or two.

Brilliant men and women, both young and old, gather in this lively arts and crafts neighborhood with its long-loved shopping arcade and Ueno park and Asakusa temple around the corner. You too will surely be met with new and exciting encounters here.

This artsy neighborhood brings people together, and there’s nothing more wonderful than that.
