    Between Shinjuku and Ikebukuro, located near the large University. The impression that the city won't be flashy, but with some things. Station of JR, private railway, Metro, public transportation is relatively good isn't it.

    There are many students of Waseda University in station square. Waseda students isn't in a school-like atmosphere and feels a bit vulgar, very good location...? Not student hours are comparatively quiet, but rather business atmosphere.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
