“A Safe City” Ebisu

Hello, this is May, a SAE staff.

Who does not want to live in a safe district?

Especially for women and families with children, the safety of living area is a matter of great importance.

Have you heard about the “Crime Information Map” web-site released by Metropolitan Tokyo Police Department?

“Crime Information Map” (Japanese only web-site)


This map, which is divided into each area, is very useful. It allows us to check the number of crime occurred starting for January, 2012.
Pretending to be a police officer, I began my investigation using this map.

Service Apartment-恵比寿事件

“Criminal Information Map around Ebisu”

Blue arrow is pointing at SAE. The map reveals how safe the nearby area is.

Annually, 26-55 crimes occur in areas around East Exit of Ebisu Station and

10-25 crimes occur in areas around West Exit of Ebisu Station.

To be more precise, only 1-9 crimes in Mita ward, where we are located.

It is a very tiny amount of crime indeed.

By the way, crime in this case is a “Bicycle Theft”.

Everyone, please be careful not to have your bicycle stolen.

Check whether the location is appropriate and safe for storing and do not forget to lock before leaving your bicycle.

Service Apartment-渋谷事件

“Criminal Information Map around Shibuya”

Moving on to our neighbor city, Shibuya, West Exit of Shibuya Station, where statues of Hachiko and Moai are, 122-240 crimes occur annually. Obviously, the more people there are, crime increases.

Even in East Exit part of Shibuya Station, there are 56-121 crimes/ year.

Service Apartment-新宿事件

“Criminal Information Map around Shinjyuku”

Furthermore, number of crimes in Shinjyuku(West&East exit) are over 241/year.

Just what is expected, the area is marked mostly in red. Shinjyuku has the largest number of the passenger in the entire world.

Before, I use to commute to work via Shinjyuku.

Shinjyuku is a great melting pot of people with different style

i.e. A man dressed as a woman. A woman dressed all in pink Hello Kitty costumes.

Of course there are many “ordinary” people too!

(Apologize to people who have strong association to Shinjyuku area.)

What is more appealing about the maps provided by Metropolitan Tokyo Police Department is that we can also find out the number of traffic accident!

Am sure people with children will find this interesting.

“Accident Information Map around Ebisu”

Blue arrow is pointing at SAE. Looking at the map, possibility of accident is high near Ebisu Station and Komazawa Street where the wide streets intersect.

However, in SAE area there are only 0-10 accidents!

To sum, from this result, SAE  is a very “safe” place to live.

As a suggestion, “Ebisu Skywalk” is recommended when heading to and from JR Ebisu Station.

Service Apartment

It is safer and faster. You can avoid getting wet from the rain too.

SAE promises you a safe and secure life.

Once again, if you are curious to know how safe your area is, please check the below.

Hi there, this is Yama, SAE staff. Thank you always for reading Service Apartment Ebisu’s blog.

Today is about hospitals near SAE I recommend.

To start with, here’s a story: on April 22nd, I was at a snow resort in Nagano (about 2.5hours away from Tokyo) to attend a qualification exam for technical ski. A total of 85 applicants gathered and I was the 25th person to ski.

Off I went with confidence, but as I made my fourth turn, I lost my balance and fell to my back, while hearing something tear inside my body…The sound was followed by a dull pain so severe that all I could do was curl up on the snow helplessly. “I must have torn the ligament…” the thought horrified me. So, instead of going home with a new qualification, I found myself on a bullet train being carried back to Tokyo.

Once in Tokyo, I had to switch hospitals a couple of times over the next few days, until I reached the hospital I felt I could count on:

Kitasato Institute Hospital

〒108-8642, 5-9-1, shirogane, Minato-ku, Tokyo

Tel 03-3444-6161

This hospital is about 10 minutes walk from us.

It is a general hospital, so all kinds of needs can be taken care of.

Although only with the help of volunteering translators, they do seem to accept foreign patients too.

Their orthopaedics has a rehabilitation center as well, where patients can receive one-on-one post-operation rehabilitation support, as well as muscle strengthening trainings. Patients with major injuries, such as mine, would find this hospital very reliable and resourceful.

With their help, I am getting closer each day till the moment I can ski again!

Another hospital of recommendation is located inside Ebisu Garden Place, which is just 5 mins walk away from us:

Ebisu Garden Place Clinic.

〒150-6004, 4F Ebisu Garden Place Tower, 4-20-3, Ebisu, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo Tel 03-5420-1611

From finding the suitable hospitals to organizing a taxi for your hospital visit, SAE’s concierges are always ready to assist you with any special requests. Please do not hesitate to ask them anything.

We wish, however, more than anything that our guests stay healthy and thoroughly enjoy their Ebisu lifestyle.

Hello, this is Shozawa, from SAE’s front desk.

The long hot summer has finally ended and with autum comes the time to indulge ourselves with great food and drinks.

Wine lovers must be looking foward to November when this year’s Beaujolais Nouveau will be released.

Ebisu, where we are located at, is known for the Yebisu Beer factory (now a museum), so if you like drinking beer, a visit to this museum might make a perfect autumn day outing.

But today, let me introduce you to a wine shop, WINE MARKET PARTY, located just around the corner from us.

Wines from all around the world are available on reasonable prices, along with a variety of cheeses.

Visiting this shop on a Friday will give you a happy start to the weekend.

Right beside the shop, you will find another wine shop, La Vinee,  purely dedicated to French wine. Not only does it stock wines from Burgandy, Bordeaux, Champagne, and Alsace, it also stocks a selection from southern France. What a fun shop to be at for wine lovers, and talking with the well-informed shop staff makes the visit even better.

What interested me the most was their selection of vintage wine from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and so on. They aren’t exactly cheap — prices begin from around 20,000yen — and another zero must be added if you wanted one in red. But perhaps for a special occasion, you could by finding a bottle of your birth year or of your special someone’s.

Do check it out when you are at Ebisu Garden Place.

4-20-7, Ebisu, Shibuya-ku, 〒150-0013

Open between 11:00 – 20:00
