Really loved everything about this place from the second we arrived! The decor is beautifully Japanese and very homey. The rooms are traditional with rice tatami mats and obviously quite small but we didn't mind. Each floor has multiple toliets and showers which were ALWAYS incredibly clean and a pleasure to use. Toliets are modern Japanese with all the cool mod-cons you need. Showers had lovely shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in them which was a handy comfort not often found in shared facility accommodation. Sometimes they had soft traditional Japanese music playing in the hallways of each floor which was a nice touch. Shoes are kept in compartments at the front door and you are given slippers to use around the Ryokan. There is a coin-operated laundry thank goodness and a great shared kitchen and relaxing lounge room. One of my favourite features was the traditional Japanese wooden bath on level 3 of the Ryokan. I used it on the last night and it was perfection! Great for sore feet and legs from big days of walking around Tokyo!
Location in Ikebukero was absolutely fine and the Ryokan is less than 10 mins from the Subway and JR Lines which was fantastic! There are plenty of good eateries in Ikebukero and also plenty to see and do! I can recommend Cafe Gusto just around the corner from the Ryokan for Western breakfasts with fabulous service and prices. Staff at the Ryokan were very obliging and always friendly.
Definitely stay in one traditional Japanese Ryokan whilst travelling through Japan and this one is a top pick!!
