Ikea to rent mini apartment in Japan for less than $ 1 a month

The 10 square meter apartment has been furnished and decorated by Ikea to maximize space.



The Swedish furniture store, Ikea , got involved in the real estate market a few times, this time announcing that she would be renting a small apartment in Tokyo for an extremely affordable price. The apartment will be located in the Shinjuku district, which is the city’s most important commercial and administrative center.

It will be a 10 square meter apartment, and the rent will be 99 yen ($ 0.86, about 19 Mexican pesos) per month, this price does not include services such as water and gas, but it is is always a great deal. In addition, the furniture and decoration provided by Ikea will be included, which is sure to be able to use little space and give it great potential.

The space will include a small mezzanine for the bed, a kitchen, a washing machine, a bathroom with WC and shower. “One of the keys is to make good use of vertical space,” the company published. “By capturing the room in three dimensions, new possibilities open up in a limited space.”

Since Tokyo is a city with a very dense population, micro-apartments are very common. To promote the property, Ikea uses the character of Blahaj, a shark who is a real estate agent. The character is featured in a series of company ads posted on YouTube.

The rental will be accessible to all those who are part of your Ikea family membership and will receive applications until December 3. The chosen person will be able to live there from December 15 to January 15.
