About Us

Established in 2012, our serviced apartments, a fairly new type of accommodation in Japan, received a very encouraging response by travellers and local guests. This has allowed us to grow rapidly, with a total of 5 central Tokyo locations available today and more to come soon. We provide spacious, fully furnished modern apartments with key amenities to ensure your comfort.


Why 1/3rd, you ask? The name came from the idea that about 1/3rd of a day is spent resting, that’s the part we look after. Our apartments will put you in the best possible position to enjoy the remaining 2/3rd’s of the day by offering you ultimate freedom and comfort during your stay.


At 1/3rd Residence our motto is “1/3rd the effort, triple your experience” and we do our best to ensure you will remember your time with us.

Our locations

Based in the heart of Tokyo, we’re the perfect place to stay if you want to explore some Tokyo top sightseeing spots, it's just a short walk or train ride away.

All our locations are within walking distance of Metro or JR train stations for your convenience.
