Ebisu most popular neighborhood for 5th year in a row

Ebisu has topped the ranking of the most desirable neighborhoods in Tokyo for the 5th year in a row. The annual survey is published by Major 7 and based on data collected by Japan’s seven top developers.

The most desirable neighborhoods in 2019:

  1. Ebisu
  2. Shinagawa
  3. Meguro
  4. Jiyugaoka
  5. Yutenji

These areas were all popular due to their relatively good transport access, while Ebisu stood out for its upscale and fashionable vibe. Ebisu is serviced by the Hibiya Subway Line and JR Yamanote Loop Line, offering easy access to many of the city’s business hubs.

Omotesando was in 7th spot, while Daikanyama was in 16th spot. The historic city of Kamakura in Kanagawa Prefecture jumped five spots to 15th place.
