BORDERLESS HOUSE ASAKUSA-IRIYA1-Share House in Ueno, Asakusa, Akihabara
- Female×Foreign nationality
This sharehouse is located in Iriya, which is nestled within the traditional historic area referred to as下町 “Shitamachi.” Being within such a traditional area evokes feelings of the Edo period and provides a break from the packed and high-paced life in the city center.
The closest station, Iriya Station, is right next to Ueno Station and it only takes 6 minutes on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line to reach Akihabara Station. Along the Hibiya Line, you will have great access to many popular and interesting areas in Tokyo such as Tsukiji, Ginza, and Roppongi. The house is also located within walking distance of Asakusa.
Iriya Station is surrounded by many different supermarkets and convenience stores, making it convenient to meet your everyday shopping needs. When you travel into the old city district of Iriya, you can also explore the famous old-fashioned shopping street called "Iriya Kinbikan Street." This area also provides access to many traditional restaurants, where you can enjoy foods such as Tempura or Kaisedon, just to name a few. The historical shrine called 鷲神社 “ootori jinja” is located just out in front of the house, and you will have the chance to view or participate in many traditional events or festivals throughout the year.
During the summer, one of the most famous fireworks festivals, 隅田川花火大会 “Sumidagawa Hanabitaikai,” takes place near Iriya. Why not take the chance to enjoy traditional culture and events through historical outings in Tokyo with your housemates?
ASAKUSA-IRIYA1 is considered a medium-sized sharehouse, with a capacity of 17 residents. Housemates are frequently gathered in the third-floor living room, and you will have the chance to interact every day! On the fourth floor, you can also relax on an open rooftop and admire Tokyo Sky Tree or watch fireworks in the summer. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and destress outside with your housemates while watching the cityscape!
This house has so many lovely features both inside the house and outside, so we highly recommend that you try living in this wonderful environment and building friendships with your new housemates here!

It was a very good time in Iriya House. Met many people and enjoy time together. The Borderless team was always very good and clear. I’ll remember the experience forever and if ever I’ll be back I’ll probably choose Borderless again!
I think that this house is a good place to enjoy and have fun with international people. They are really kind, thankful and funny. Iriya house is where I called home for five months and I won't forget the people I met.
浅草入谷ハウスに1年半お世話になってたくさん友達ができました。 皆家族のように接してくれて毎日本当に楽しかったです。 パーティも月に2回ほど開催していて、さみしく感じることは全くありませんでした。 また東京に戻ってきたらここに住みたいです。
