Platinum Residential Area on the Hill

Shirokanedai is located on the hill between Meguro and Shirokane-Takanawa, and well-known for its high-end residential environment. The market price of rental properties is relatively high because of the safe and elegant atmosphere. The neighborhood is also surrounded by prestigious schools of Tokyo and it attracts many upper-class Japanese families. The main street stretching from Shirokanedai Scramble Crossroad to the north is called “Platinum Street” where you can find sophisticated boutiques and cafes along the rows of beautiful ginkgo trees. 

The Neighborhood


Shirokanedai Station has 2 metro lines, Toei Mita and the metro Namboku. Commuting to Otemachi, Meguro and Azabujuban/Roppongi is convenient. Also, catching a bus at Meguro Street easily takes you to go towards Shinagawa, Hiroo and Minami-Aoyama.

In addition, school buses to ASIJ and St Mary’s stop near Shirokanedai Station and Happoen.  It makes the neighborhood more convenient for expat families to live in.

Comments from RISE Corp

Shirokanedai offers all types of rental properties from studio apartments to detached houses, but it is more popular among families because you can find some facilities which support families in Shirokanedai. Shirokanedai Donguri Jido Yuen is a park always bustling with children and business people spending their lunch time outside of the office.

Institute For Nature Study next to the park is to preserve the natural environment of Tokyo’s forests and marshlands. The grounds are used for research and education, although anyone may enjoy the park’s trails and natural beauty for a small fee.
