Kimi Ryokan
Ranked #2 of 55 Hotels / Ryokan in Toshima
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 6, 2005

My girlfriend and I (mid-twenties) stayed at the Kimi Ryokan Spring 2003. Pros: cute residential neighborhood, very cheap for Tokyo, community room, clean (like everywhere in Tokyo), Japanese (mats on the floor). Cons: Japanese (mats on the floor); shared shower/toilet facilities, location (I disagree with the other reviewer. We stayed here, in Shinjuku, and in Shibuya--Shinjuku and Shibuya is where it's at. Ikebukuro is a cute but sleepy residential neighborhood. But the other neighborhoods are easily accessable from the subway, maybe 20 mins + 5-10 min walk if I remember correctly), and while we were there it was freezing at night (I think the window was broken and would not shut all the way).

Bottom line: A good, cheap Japanese experience. Very good for the money.

After few years back to Kimi. Very well located, 7min walk from Ikebukuro JR station West Exit. If you want to experience Ryokan for less than 8000yen, book a room. Don't worry about your Japanese language, staff (chinese?) speaks english. Follow the rules, Japanese style bath and so. One thing, nosy rooms near the showers and toilets (located on each floor). AVOID them!!
