Okubo is a neighborhood within Tokyo's Shinjuku ward known for its extensive Korean community. It is built around Shin-Okubo Station and is accessible on the Yamanote Line. All our apartments in this area are within 10 minutes of either Okubo or Shin-Okubo station with excellent access to areas such as Shinjuku, Nakano and Ikebukuro to name just a few. Fontana provides a range of apartments in this area, both in the heart of lively Shin-Okubo and more secluded locations nearby. Shin-Okubo is home to both Korean residents in Japan as well as Korean immigrants, and has seen an upsurge in popularity due to Hallyu pop-culture. Unlike most of the Tokyo metropolitan area, where signs are bilingual Japanese and English, many signs in Shin-Okubo are trilingual: Korean, Japanese and English. This area is perfect for people with an outgoing nature, that love of both Korean and Japanese cuisine.
