Shimokitazawa Station serves two lines connecting the bohemian Shimokitazawa commercial area to Shinjuku and Shibuya stations a little to the east.

Keio Inokashira Line

The Keio Inokashira Line runs east-west above ground through Shimokitazawa Station, dividing Shimokitazawa into north and south halves, and making a bottleneck of the station for getting from one half to the other.

The Keio Inokashira Line starts at Shibuya Station, 3km east. Shimokitazawa Station is four stations on from Shibuya Station, just a 3-minute ride on an express train leaving from platform 1 or 2 of Keio Shibuya Station, on the second floor of the Shibuya Mark City commercial building. Cost of journey: 130 yen (or 124 yen with a prepaid IC smartcard).
