Day Trip Nakano Shimbashi vol.1

A Day trip to… Nakano Shimbashi

Explore and discover Nakano Shimbashi! Here is where to head to spend a day in the neighborhood.

11:00-12:00 Brunch at TRICHROMATIC COFFEE

The best way to start the day is  with a delicious brunch at Trichromatic Coffee. This stylish café with terrace seating is only a four-minute walk from Hmlet Nakano-Shimbashi. We recommend their mouth-watering  toast and sandwiches made with bread from the popular Sasazuka bakery, “Opan”.  This crispy on the outside and soft on the inside bread with freshly brewed coffee is the perfect combo to start  your day right!

12:00-12:30 Walk to Shinjuku Central Park

After brunch there is nothing better  than a nice and relaxing walk. You can pick one of the several routes from Nakano Shinbashi Station towards Shinjuku Central Park and enjoy unexpected scenery, small shops and the beauty of nature.

12:30-13:00 Visit Juniso-kumanojinja

The Juniso Kumanojinja is located  beside Shinjuku Central Park and is considered the guardian of all of Shinjuku. The shrine in all its majestic beauty perfectly matches the vibrant nature of Shinjuku. It’s believed that the shrine was  built by Kuro Suzuki in the Oei era (1394-1428) of the Muromachi period (1394-1428), when he transferred the Twelve Kumano Gongen from the three Kumano mountains in Kishu. The shrine is very famous and the ideal place to pray for business, safety, and the healing of illness. Nadeshiko Japan also visited the shrine to pray for victory before winning the FIFA World Cup!

13:00-14:00 Lunch at The knot Tokyo Shinjuku

After  visiting the temple, The Knot Hotel Tokyo is the perfect place to stop for a relaxing lunch. This stylish hotel is located right in front of Shinjuku Central Park - you can't miss it! The MORE THAN GRILL on the 2nd floor is the perfect place to have a casual  lunch while enjoying the greenery of the park in front. An example of their spring lunch special is the colorful, fresh and delicious pasta with shrimp which even tastes like spring itself! The cozy atmosphere will tempt you to stay there for a long time, but it’s time to continue exploring the neighborhood!

14:00-15:00 Going to observatories

Did you know that the observatories  in the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building are free and open to everyone? There are two observation rooms,  one to the north and one to the south and you can see the entire city of Tokyo including Tokyo Skytree and Tokyo Tower! On sunny days you can even spot  Mt Fuji on the west side. *The use of the observatories may be restricted due to the coronavirus. For more information, please check the Tokyo Metropolitan Government's official website.

15:00-15:30 Walk to home

After enjoying the stunning views  of Tokyo, it’s time to head home and a different route might lead to new and exciting discoveries!

16:00-Grab some bread for breakfast.

On the way back, stopping at HATOYA  TOKYO  is a must. The Nakano-Shinbashi Branch is the  first Tokyo branch of the popular HATOYA Confectionary shop in Kyushu and the dough and other ingredients come directly from Kagoshima! This shop is very popular and its baked goods can get sold out very quickly, so we recommend calling in advance to make sure you can reserve a piece of deliciousness! If you prefer to eat-in,  you can also enjoy their freshly baked breads directly in the shop. Everything there looks amazing and  the "Cookie Chocolate & Whip" is great for breakfast as it’s always good to have something to look forward to in the morning!

Hope you enjoyed our neighborhood guide and Hmlet Nakano Shimbashi area!!

ADVANTAGESThree reasons to choose Hmlet

1Live freely

You can choose between Hmlet’s All Inclusive Plan to simplify things for a short trip, or Hmlet’s Residence Plan, specifically geared to help you have an extended stay longer than 6 months. Members can choose the plan that best suits their needs based on their lifestyle, family and work requirement.

2Live easy

There are two hurdles to moving. The first is the initial cost. With Hmlet apartments, there is no key money, or any hidden brokerage fees!
All of our rooms are also furnished, so you can effortlessly and seamlessly transition into a comfortable life in Japan at a reduced initial cost.
The second hurdle is the troublesome procedures. Normally when renting an apartment, it is difficult because you need to contact and make a contract with each utility provider for electricity, gas, water, Wi-Fi, etc. after you receive the key. At Hmlet, electricity, gas, water, Wi-Fi, etc. are already contracted for you, so you can start your new life comfortably from the day you move in.

3Live luxuriously

If you use the Hmlet resident-only app, you can request room cleaning service with just one click like a hotel. There is also a 24-hour emergency call center, so you can spend everyday comfortably and with peace of mind. (* Cleaning services require a separate prior contract with the service provider.)
In addition, we work together with various partners such as an electric bicycle sharing service and a delivery service to provide a more comfortable and convenient life for our residents.
