What to expect from this IKEA apartment in Tokyo

The fully furnished studio apartment is at 10m² and you can find it specifically in Shinjuku.  It showcases a cosy, minimalist interior design — all courtesy of IKEA, of course. It’s also a study in maximising the two-level vertical space; with features like a loft space for the bed, a bathroom with a toilet and shower, a kitchenette, lots of shelves, and other convertible storage items.

However, the rent does not cover moving costs and utilities. But with such a low price, it’s still quite the bargain, don’t you think?

Helping spread the word about this IKEA studio apartment is Blåhaj, the brand’s resident shark mascot who also happens to be a real estate agent. 

Applications for this IKEA rental service are now open until 3 Dec 2021 to all those part of the IKEA Family Members program. For more information, click here
