Tokyo: to live there
Where to live ?
To say the truth, it's easy to answer this question. If you have children who will go to the french Japanese school, you better live near this scholl. Ichigaya, Yotsuya, Aoyama Akasaka are a few of the neighbourhoods nearby. There is a shuttle between the french ambassy and the scho9ol every morning.
If you are single or let say with children, then all the options are open. As far as I am concerned, I prefer the neighbourhood of Shibuya.
It's nice and young place. There are a little less toursists than in Roppongi. Otherwise: Shibuya or Roppongi
If your budget is limited, you could also consider the near suburb of Tokyo. Shimo Kitazawa, Merima Ku
