"BEST PLACE I STAYED WHILE IN TOKYO"
A+++++ Cannot gush more about what an epic and wonderful location and experience! Made traveling a dream and enjoyable and stress free even using a guidebook to translate. BEST vacation of my life and I have traveled to many areas of the globe! Next time I am in Japan will stay here as a home base again!
Sightseeing - Limitless! Trains and Subway only 5 min walk, shrines everywhere, just walking around your area is exciting, no two buildings are alike, just enjoying being in another country is fantastic and especially one so clean, friendly, respectful, polite, affordable, with something for everyone!
Dining - Limitless! Countless restaurants line the streets, back alleys, malls! All have large pictures & plastic replicas to show you exactly what you are getting - no need to speak Japanese! You can just point and smile at staff and use your guidebook for more detailed requests. Prices - 100 yen = $1 roughly. FOOD = FOODGASM EXPERIENCE!! Try it all!! Esp the curry, pork cutlets, ramen, bbq!
Lodging - Loved it! Friendly staff who speak fluent English, very helpful and patient. Optional smoking or non-smoking rooms, optional housekeeping (can save you a few $). Comfortable rooms, AC, private bathroom, open area in middle of annex building very cool, nice big window with view of city (Kameido). Very affordable! Traditional beds (pillows & beds in japan are FIRM!) lol ><
Shopping - Mall nearby within 2 mins walking plus tons of stores or take the train to anywhere! Limitless!
