In all Tokyo areas, there is something to do, like insane shopping in Harajuku, or extreme nightlife in Shinjuku. But Tokyo is also famous for its amazing food markets, sumo wrestling games, great art cafes, mouth-watering cuisine, a comic mania, and many more.

For all the lonely souls out there, this inexpensive room might be just what you are looking for. What you get, is a private, either Japanese-style futon bedding or Western-style room equipped with a small fridge, a television, air conditioning, heating, and towels, a shared toilet, and shower with other guests, and a microwave in the common kitchen.
