Tokyo is home to many prestigious universities, vocational schools and language schools. Let's check the most popular areas for students from abroad based on their proximity to schools and convenience. 1 Shinjuku Area:

Shinjuku is a very big district in Tokyo that is home to Waseda and Sofia University and many famous language schools. It is by far the most popular area for foreign students due to it's proximity to both schools and night life. It is possible to find more affordable accommodation as long as it is not close to Shinjuku station, the main hub. 2 Ikebukuro Area:

Ikebukuro has many cafe, restaurant and game centers that are popular with young people.
