Seikou

The domed roof at this landmark Ogikubo establishment spells out 'Seikou Lodging'. Located right next to a run-of-the-mill apartment block, the historical ryokan building is actually a registered Tangible Cultural Property of Japan, with interiors resembling an old Western-style boarding house renovated in Japanese style. The narrow corridors are fitted with stepping stones and eaves, with the Western influence more visible in details like the impressive glass-paneled fireplace, all in all providing for quite a unique combination.

Beautiful ryokan with wonderful atmosphere. Actually, when you step inside it seems like you are in 1930's Japan. The local area Ogikubo is a lively suburb with a feeling of community. The owner Yoshitama Hirama is very sincere, friendly and speaks reasonably good English.

Ogikubo has good transport links - Chuo line to Tokyo, Kanda stations or Subo line to Shinjuku, Akihabara stations. A few stops along the Sobu line is Koenji which is a new "hotspot" for restaurants and bars.
