A few people asked us about the rents of these “Bikers’ Apartments” in Tokyo.

The rent of an apartment unit where you can keep a motorcycle inside ranges from $800 to $1700 a month. The more you pay the fancier and more convenient it gets.

Currently these units are available:

One apartment (448 SF) is available at NE Apartment for about $1,660 a month.

Another one (349 SF) is available at Apartment in Shimokitazawa for about $1,375 a month.

And a few units are still available at Creer Ukimafunado for about $1,300 a month and up.
