Average Rents in Tokyo by Area

Tokyo is one of the world’s most expensive cities, and rents can be astronomical, but if you’re a little bit careful in deciding where you live, it can also be surprisingly cheap. This chart is from the homepage of a Japanese real-estate agent called Homes Chintai that shows the average monthly rents for various apartment sizes throughout the Greater Tokyo Area. It goes from cheapest  to most expensive and there’s a huge variation in the 70,000 yen you’d pay for a two-bedroom apartment in Hachioji City to the 194,500 yen you’d pay in Minato Ward downtown (not to mention the fact that you’d probably get an extra 20+ square meters of living space in Hachioji).

The website has similar charts for all areas of Japan, but is in Japanese only.

The first number in each cell is the average rent in tens of thousands of yen (E.g. 3.73=37,300 yen) and the one in brackets is the number of apartments the company has within ten minutes’ walk of the nearest station.

    Thanks a ton for this Gaijin friendly chart! Me and my wife stayed in Minato-ku (at Fresa inn) when we visited Japan and i must say that iv never been in such a good part of a city before. Theres absolute silence after 19:00 and it has great bars and restaurants with reasonable prices. No wonder with that rent thou. I think it would be cheaper to just stay at a hotel tbh.

    Love your Blog btw! Awesome insider information!

    Ever been to the annual traditional dance event at Chôfu? A must see for anyone, even if dance isnt your thing :)
