Hi there, it’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to share this time one of budget-friendly hotels in Tokyo called Hotel Meigetsu.

Budget-Friendly Hotels in Tokyo: Hotel Meigetsu

It is located in Minami Senju which is rather a quiet area. Sorta hard to believe that I was in Tokyo. It would feel quite different than hotels in central. This place is ideal for a long stay or budget trip, I suppose.

Access

Take a Joban Line train at JR Nippori Station and get off at JR Minami Senju Station, takes about 5 minutes.

From JR Minami Senju Station, walk down towards north to Hotel Meigetsu. (about 8 minutes)

 

7-21-10 Minami Senju, Arakawa-ku, Tokyo

 

Room

This is a room for two (bank bed), spacey enough with privacy.

 

Facilities

Restrooms are available both in the first and second floor. In the first floor, there’s a kitchen, a vending machine and shower rooms. You can also do your laundry. Mirrors and hair dryers are also available. Face and body towels are also provided. Overall, the place is pretty neat. I even saw room deodorizers set at the corner of the room.

Neighborhood

If you are familiar with Matsuo Basho (a famous poet), there is a place where he departed for his most-known work Oku no Hosomichi (The Narrow Road to the Deep North).  It’s only a 5-minute walk from Hotel Meigetsu along the Sumida River. It would be nice to jog in the morning and stop by.

Hi there, it’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to share about an accommodation in Takayama, Gifu where we stayed at.

Accommodation in Takayama, Gifu: Auberge Hida no Mori (B&B)

This is Hida no Mori (Forest of Hida). Looks really nice, doesn’t it? It offers free pick-up at the JR Takayama Station. (It’s a little far for accessing on foot.) You could also have a ride on the way back. Since Takayama is small and this place is quite popular, early booking would be recommended.

 

Address

3349-1 Shingumachi, Takayama, Gifu

 

Common Room

It has got such a cozy common room with fire place (used in winter). FYI, bathroom is shared with other guests. A very nice one with bath tab. It’s a shame I couldn’t take a photo.

Breakfast

It was one of the fanciest breakfasts I’ve ever had . Feels like a good start for the day. It was minestrone soup (with half-cooked egg on top), bread, orange juice, and yogurt after.
