Is Marui House in Ikebukero (sp?) still in existence? I lived there for a few months years ago and it was quite good.

how much were you wanting to spend a night? and what area of tokyo do you want to stay in. there are always cheap places to stay in this area on the north west side of tokyo near ueno station.


usually about 20-30us a night. if you looking for something about the same price in shinjuku you will probably have to sleep in a capsule. and for 30-40 a night there are some decently clean hotels a few stops from shinjuku or shibuya.

There are quite a few options depending on the usual factors/trade off’s. Take a look at the listings on the metropolis / japanToday website http://classifieds.japantoday.com/ for guest houses. Otherwise I guess if you let us know exaclty what your looking for, how much you want to spend and how central you want to stay I could point you in the direction of some suitable hotels.

Hi Philipp

I was cleaning up my inbox today, and noticed that I had not looked at one e-mail.
It came from Rakuten. I thought that it was only available in Japanese, but they do have an English page and a search capability for hotels in all over Japan. While it is not super cheap, some are more reasonable than others, and they have more central location. Most of their inexpensive accommodations come with no meals, but Starbucks and the like are easy to find in Tokyo.

I checked out the cheapest one at 6195 JPY and it seems that there are rooms available in June. They show the photo of the room plus the list of amenities.

By the way, you should be aware that June is the month of rain in most of Japan except Hokkaido.

Here is the site:

Dear Philipp,

I am in Ningxia, China now. Damn. If I were in Tokyo, I could have a look.
Y 7,000 I think, is about as cheap as you are going to get.

For how long will you be there?!
