Ikebukuro
Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.

We went to Tokyo for a week and a half in April. My brother want to experience Japan traditional accommodation. We stayed here for 2 nights as a family of four in two separate rooms. The staffs are very friendly and speak English well. The rooms are small and the futons took up most of the tatami floor (you can just fold and pile the futons for more space) but cozy with small window and heater and air-cond. Shared toilets (equip with sanitizer) and showers (shampoo, body wash, toothbrushes and hairdryer provided) were very clean. There is a Japanese style bath, Hinoki tub that you need to booked first before use (it's very nice, relaxing and the tub is deep). There's an open roof top terrace and coin laundry machines. If you come early before your check-in time or has to check-out before your flight time you can ask front desk staff to store your bags and relax at the communal lounge (has tv and foot-massage machine) and shared kitchen (free green tea and has refrigerator to store your perishable foods). Location wise, it's less than 10 minutes walk from Ikebukuro station. There is money exchange place nearby the Ikebukuro station. The area around the Ikebukuro station has a city feeling about it but as you walk to Kimi Ryokan, you get more "towny" feeling. I love it. There are a lot of convenient stores and eateries (including Halal eateries) within walking distance. Bonus for budget traveler, if you get the local area map from the ryokan, there's a local 100-yen shop (not Daiso) nearby. As traditional Japanese accommodation for budget traveler, Kimi Ryokan is definitely the best place to stay. I highly recommend this place.

This is a small friendly guesthouse about 10 minutes walk from the main station. Buried in a side street in a nicely weird area with a bar on the corner which has live penguins. Lots of small places to eat/drink nearby. Rooms are small but super clean. You need to take off your shoes as you enter and wear the slippers they give you...there are different slippers for use in the toilets. The showers and toilets are communal but there's plenty of them. There's also a Japanese bathtub you can use free, just by asking for the key at the front desk. A small lounge provides vending machines, a guitar for strumming, an electronic foot massager, free green tea and water, and basic kitchen facilities. Staff are super nice and friendly. Prices are so reasonable, we're going back to stay before we leave Japan. Tatami mat beds are very comfortable.

We stayed here 4 nights. The staff is extremely kind and attentive. Included in your stay: japanese bath, hot tea, cold and hot water and a terrace at the top floor. I was skeptical about shared showers and toilets but they were super clean and I never had to wait. Our room was very small for European standards but we really loved the place!

We had a great stay here for 8 nights. Location was convenient - 10 mins walk from Ikekuburo station, which is Tokyo’s second largest station and is convenient for the JR Yamamote (green) line. There is a metro stop even closer. The area itself has some nice bars/restaurants and also a massive Taito gamestation! The area feels very safe, in keeping with Tokyo in general. Our room was a small traditional tatami room and we used the shared toilet/shower. All very clean. The room was cosy and it was a nice introduction to staying in a ryokan for us - tatami, shoes off, Yukata provided etc. Very reasonably priced for the traditional nature of the place and the good location. Would recommend.
