Livability

Although Nogizaka Station itself is only serviced by one subway line (Chiyoda), those living in the area will more likely than not be located between Nogizaka Station and another nearby station. This is one of the benefits of living in this central part of Minato Ward: you’ll be within walking distance from a number of destination stations in Tokyo.

Residents mention that while the streets of Nogizaka are calm, clean, and quiet, they often have to make the short trek to Tokyo Midtown or deeper into Roppongi to do any shopping since there is a lack of shopping/dining options in Nogizaka itself (especially when compared to what you can find in nearby Aoyama, Omotesando, and Roppongi). With this in mind, it’s important to factor in that certain parts of Roppongi are considered a bit rough around the edges, especially when trying to walk through them at night.
