This buzzling area of Tokyo is located within Shinjuku ward and is close to Waseda and Mejiro. There are a lot of schools both in and around the area, for instance Waseda University and Gakushuin University as well as several language schools and because of this, Takadanobaba turns into a kind of college town. Almost every night young students gather at the famous Rotary and meet up before going to one of the numerous izakayas or bars which are located around the station. Our accommodations in Takadanobaba are located within one to five minutes’ walk to the station and it only takes five minutes to get to both Shinjuku and Ikebukuro and 12 minutes to Shibuya. This place is ideal if you attend a language school in the area but the fact that the station is served by both Yamanote Line and Tozai Line lets you travel to the key areas of Tokyo without any transfers.
