Hongo, a calm ambience in the heart of the city
The neighborhood of Hongo, Bunkyo Ward spreads out around Hongo 3-chome Station, which is served by two subway lines: Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line and Toei Oedo Line.
Together, these subway lines deliver the unbeatable convenience of transfer-free connections to such major train stations as Tokyo, Shinjuku, Ikebukuro and Roppongi.
Bunkyo Ward is richly endowed with educational institutions, beginning with Tokyo University, making it not only a highly desirable educational environment but also exceptionally low-crime even by Tokyo standards.
But Hongo is not just a student quarter. An office-building district is close at hand, providing trade for a plethora of shopping and dining venues.
Just a few minutes’ walk from Hongo 3-chome Station are daily-needs shopping options such as the Hongo 2-chome locations of small supermarkets “My Basket” and “Maruetsu Petit”, providing a convenient environment for residents.
Stroll a little further from the station and you’re rewarded with attractions of natural beauty such as “Hongo Kyusuijo Park”, a garden of roses; “Koishikawa Korakuen”, a verdant park adjacent to Korakuen Station; and “Ueno Onshi Park” in Ueno. In sum, Hongo brilliantly ticks all three boxes of living environment, transportation access and educational environment.
No surprise, then, that Hongo is regarded as one of the most eminently livable districts in Tokyo.
