I was only here a short few days, but I felt a real sadness when I left. I would ABSOLUTELY come back here again for an extended stay. It is a very authentically Japanese experience, a central space in true Japanese night life, and a believable space. Small rooms, yet very organized space for a large amount of storage. The roof top deck is an absolute pleasure, a really beautiful center piece to the house. It is homey, yet cleanly. Safe, yet wonderfully exciting. And the location absolutely cannot be beat. 1 minute walk from Koenji station, three stops away from JR yamanote line. A wonderful area, a wonderful boarding house. Prices cannot be beat. Toshi-san and Wataru-san are absolute pleasures, and extremely knowledgeable in everything "Tokyo."
10/10, would do again in a heart beat.
