Kimi Ryokan

Ikebukuro | 2-36-8 Ikebukuro, Toshima-ku, Tokyo [map] | +81 3-3971-3766


Named by Lonely Planet as the best place to stay in Tokyo for budget travelers, Kimi Ryokan markets itself as a budget ryokan, which is quite rare, as “ryokan” and “budget” typically do not go together.

If you’re looking for affordable traditional Japanese accommodation (tatami mats, futon, wooden floors), this is the place for you. Toilets and showers are shared-use facilities, like a hostel. Also, there’s a coin laundry and an open-air terrace.

Another benefit is that the facilities are completely smoke free – still a rarity in Japan.
